50th Annual Convention

The 2014 Convention will be held on Saturday June 7th and Sunday June 8th which is the Queen's Birthday Weekend.
The Australian Fox Hunting Championships will once again be a 2 day event with the first event of the Sniffer Hunt starting at 11:00am on the Saturday as usual.

The venue will again be the 1st Mount Gambier Scout Hall in Margaret Street, Mount Gambier.
Entry Fee this year is only $5.00

Our Chef from last year has been convinced to return so catering will be available again at the venue.

Presentations were held in the Scout Hall last year and as this proved to be successful that it will be held at the Scout Hall again this year.
