The Operations team respectfully ask that scouts/explorers/catchers DO NOT visit the area surrounding the muster point in preparation for Operation Chameleon for the following reasons –
1) The site is locked when not in use with no areas for the parking of vehicles outside of the grounds.
2) Warwickshire Police are aware of the event on Saturday 17th November with numbers of teams involved – they are not expecting groups to be in the area leading up to the event. We also do not wish to upset locals before OR during the event.
3) Teams that visit beforehand may also have an unfair advantage over other participants.
4) Teams risk being disqualified if they are discovered to have pre-visited the area.

Good luck to all participating teams – see you next Saturday!
