Be Prepared

We will be sleeping outside during the night in November and the weather may be very cold, so please ensure that you are prepared physically and mentally. 

Use the checklist below as a guide to what you will need to bring with you in order to protect you. 

Your clothing should be warm and waterproof, several thin layers of clothing are better than one thick layer.  A woolly hat, warm footwear, gloves and a sleeping bag are essential. 

It is highly recommended that you bring a large cardboard box as protection from the wind, preferably large enough to actually sleep inside. 

The Club will be open to participants and you will be able to sleep inside should there be adverse weather conditions or you are simply too cold to stay outside.
