Working with Vulnerable People Card
Remember that anyone over 18 years camping (staying overnight) on the Regatta oval must have a Working with Vulnerable People Card.  This is a legal requirement.  Leaders, please record on your Additional Entry form the names of any adults camping with your group together with their Working with Vulnerable People Card number and its expiry date.  If you have already done this on the Registration form, or have sent this information with your paperwork for a previous Regatta, then there is no need to repeat it.   

For Guide and Scout Leaders these details should already be with the relevant Association so it is not necessary to include them.  
Rovers and Olaves, if there are adults over 18 years not registered with the Scout or Guide Associations camping with your group, you will also need to record this information.
