Melbourne is a beautiful place, and whilst we have put in place a number of policies in order to ensure that the event runs smoothly, we cannot control one important aspect - the weather!
The weather will not stop the parade, short of a biblical flood.
Over the last 10 years, we have only had a few really wet parades. As everyone is also aware, there is no designated wet weather uniform items available from The Scouts Shop Online.
Our preference is for a navy jacket (TSSO do have a Scouts Australia polar fleece) or a blue/clear plastic poncho. A suitable plastic poncho can be found at any camping store, Reject shop or $2 style shop and is a handy item to have within your camping kit. If your group has a jacket or top which incorporates the Scouts logo, this is acceptible for the day.
Due to restrictions by Fed Square, we will not have any form of overhead shelter on the day. This may change dependant upon the RSL having something supplied.
