Jones Paskin Reserve, Jones St, Balcatta

**Please note: Due to the high temperatures forecast for 22nd January, there may be some changes to this event. Please check the OWA website and Eventor before coming. The organisers will determine what changes are necessary based on the OWA Extreme Weather Events Policy and the Sports Medicine Australia Hot Weather Guidelines. Ensure you have plenty of water and remain well hydrated.

This event will be held in suburban Balcatta. The main portion of the map area was used in 2015 and is still named 'Stirling' after the original map. There are small parks scattered through the area but most of the map is quiet suburban streets.

The assembly area is on the southern edge of Jones Paskin Reserve, under the trees.  There are car parks off both Jones and Paskin Streets but they are likely to be taken up by cricketers. There is verge parking on the south and west sides of the reserve and street parking to the west.

Summer camp this year was held at the Eaton Scout Camp near Bunbury from Friday 14th to Monday 17th January, with 23 juniors and 11 coaches and parents participating. Two 12-seater buses were used to ferry the juniors around Australind and Bunbury. It was great to see six new juniors at this camp: Hunter, Elena, Neve, Quinn, Christopher and Elianna.

On Friday afternoon, soon after arrival and refreshments, Ian and Jan assisted by Nick gave the juniors a lesson in safety and handling of the big Canadian canoes. The Collie River next to the camp was ideal for this activity with calm water, but the stiff sea breeze made for hard going into the wind.
