Dear Parents, Leaders, Participants & Helpers,
As everyone is aware 2020 has been a difficult year for all of us, not only with the impact on scouting & outdoor events but world wide. This year will be remembered for decades!
The Top Gear Scout & Top Gear Venturer events have grown in numbers substantially over the last 3 years. In March we planned for over 700 participants for Top Gear Scout – and it sold out. Our dedicated team went over & above to make sure we could accommodate everyone but after releasing another 100 tickets we still had over 50 Scouts on the waiting list!
It’s understandable that everyone is eager to get answers to questions regarding tickets, refunds & more importantly- when will Top Gear Scout be running! I hope the below information provides some answers to your questions.
While it’s unknown how and when Victoria’s restrictions will ease, we are unable to set a date to run a replacement event. I’m sure you will understand the difficulties involved in planning a major event under these circumstances.
The Scouts Victoria Major Events Top Gear team in conjunction with Scouts Victoria Branch have put in the place the following measures regarding tickets that have been purchased for the Top Gear Scout 2020 event.
All ticket holders will be given the opportunity to retain their spot and transfer their ticket to the next event. They can also opt to transfer this spot internally within a scout group or team to another member.
Any ticket holders that have moved sections or age brackets will be able to transfer their ticket to the correct ticket type or event (ie. Scouts that have moved to Venturers can transfer their ticket to Top Gear Venturer, or Scouts that were Under 12 can opt to upgrade to an Over 12 Ticket)
If none of the above is able to occur then we will refund the ticket cost to your nominated bank account (less any fees paid upon initial purchase).
I would also like to take this opportunity to thank the entire Top Gear Team, Sponsors, Supporters & family members for their hard work & understanding in preparation for Top Gear Scout 2020.
Unfortunately we were unable to see all the hard work & planning come into fruition this year, however rest assured we’re all ready to go whenever we’re able to!
Please nominate your decision via the below button to the Top Gear Scout 2020 Ticket Nomination Form before 31st October 2020.
Yours in Scouting,
Victorian State Leader – Top Gear
