Girl Guides Tasmania's State Calendar 2020 

57th Scout Guide Regatta

7-9 March 2020, Snug
The Scout Guide Regatta has been a regular event on the Tasmanian Scouting and Guiding calendar for 57 years.  It is unique in Australia because of its water based regatta program and being a combined Scouting and Guiding event.  Participants, their Leaders and parents camp in tents around the Snug Oval with centralised catering.

Scouts, Guides, Venturers, Ranger Guides, Rovers, Olaves, Leaders and parents participate in both water and land-based events.  The water events include kayaking, canoes, dinghies, yachting, patrol craft, rescue, greasy pole, raft building and other novelty water events.
There is also the opportunity to have a go at kayaking, patrol craft rowing and pacer dinghies in a non-competitive setting.  Land events include tug or war, ball and chain, gumboot throwing, rope throwing, bucket relays and flags.  Evening activities include an outdoor movie.
