    Gilwell Reunion

    Anyone going this year? I'm thinking of going, that said, I don't have my woodbadge yet so very much pondering if i *can* go, my assumption is yes as it's basically a leader's camp. Am thinking I should really start making an effort to go to events etc out of county to meet other people

    It's now open to all adults in Scouting not just WB holders.

    I'd like to go but I'm on duty at the Paralympics that weekend.

    It's always interesting to see the scope of Scouting.........

    Just to see and meet the spectrum of people with the range of events,interests and considerations of those involved in Scouting;it's well worth a visit to The Reunion.....

    Also if you can stay a few days there are just so many events linked to Arts and Sports around the Capital which are mostly Free.

    I'd like to go, but my wife is due to give birth on 15th September.

    Hopefully next year!

    I am hoping to go but no transport makes it difficult but not impossible - anyone fancy a car share from Long Eaton Junction 25 of M1

    Lister, I went for the first time last year, it was OKish, but you would be better of going to the one of the good jamborees, Norjam or KIJ come to mind. I came away from the reuion feeling rather dissapointed about the state and behaviour of my fellow leaders, and there was so much more that could have been provided to make attendance worth while.

    The problem is Paul that HQ have to try and cater for a wide range of adults and pleasing them all is an impossibility.

    I have never been but know others who have gone for many years and enjoy it, meeting new people and old friends. HQ also have to try and balance a learning type event with social activity.

    If I did ever go then I'm sure I would learn something and have a good time. It is the cost that puts me off (not the event itself but transport, food etc makes it an expensive weekend).
