c) Nights Away Notification/Nights Away Passport

A Nights Away Notification will be submitted by the Camp Site Manager covering all teams camping overnight on the Saturday.  Section leaders with teams taking part in the expedition weekend do not need to submit a Nights Away Notification unless their team(s) will camp overnight on Friday night, before the official event start on Saturday morning.

Teams may request camping space for the Friday night (for example, if they have an early check-in time for the event start, or have difficulty getting transport to the start on Saturday morning). In this case teams must apply to their Home DC for a Nights Away Passport or submit a Nights Away Notification (as appropriate) for the Friday night.

d) SAFETY NOTE - Gas Stoves

Section Leaders and participants, please make sure your cooking equipment is safe and that those using it know the correct procedure.  Guidance on safe use of gas stoves can be found here
