Scouts to fly kites to raise cash

| 04/10/2011

(CNS): The local scout association is hoping to raise some cash and attract new recruits later this month with  the resurrection the once popular Cayman pastime of kite-flying. The kite extravaganza will see prizes awarded for biggest and smallest kites, the first kite up; the highest flying and the best home-made kite. The family fun day and fundraiser for the association will take place on Saturday, 22 October at the Jay Bodden Marl Pit, on Sparky Drive, behind CUC from 10:00 a.m. to 2:00 p.m.

“This is one of our important annual events that bring the scouting community together and I appeal to everyone to come out, enjoy a day of kiting and support the many boys and girls whose lives are being influenced in a positive way by scouting,” says Executive Commissioner of Scouts, Winston Hayle.

Annual registration of new and existing scouts will also take place at the event and parents are encouraged to bring their kids out to sign up as scouts.

The entry fee for kite flying is $10.00 and further information is available by calling 917-1506/ 939-8813/ 326-4518 or email
