All SySTEMs Go!








As MUN has cancelled all on campus events until the end of June 2020, our All systems go event has been effected, and therefore cancelled at this time. 

We are hoping to reschedule this event for spring 2021. 

Anyone who has already paid for registration will be reimbursed.


All SySTEMs Go is Coming to Newfoundland and Labrador on June 5th - 7th, 2020 at Memorial University!

 

Join us for a weekend of experiments, activities and adventure as we explore Science, Technology, Engineering and Math at Memorial University. Unit and individual sign-up is available.

Patrols should avail of busing provided by provincial council. 

Will there be a transportation cost?

No. The cost of transportation has been worked in with the registration costs for the event.



Life at Event


What are the Patrol Guider duties while at camp?

Patrol Guiders will be primarily responsible for girls in the patrol under their care.  Each Patrol will become part of a section. Guiders will have plenty of opportunity to spend time with their girls and join them in activities.

Aside from this primary role, Patrol Guiders will be expected to assist in the running of the event and in the delivery of the program activities if and when needed.  The specifics of this assistance are difficult to define in advance and will depend on the circumstances we encounter during event.  “Lend a hand” should be the guiding principle while at event.

Fundraising and Camp Fee


Why do Patrol Guiders have to pay a registration fee to attend All SySTEMS Go! 2020
There is a considerable cost associated with running an event like All SySTEMs Go! 2020.  Most adult participants are asked to pay a registration fee to offset costs associated with their attendance and to ensure monies paid by the girls are directed towards providing an exceptional camp experience to them.

How much are camp fees and when are they due?

Newfoundland and Labrador Patrols:

Cost is $55 per person (includes HST).

Patrols are responsible for their own travel or may avail of transportation provided by ALL SySTEMs Go! 2020.   

Payment Due:

April 15, 2020

Payment can be made by cheque to NL Provincial Council. Payment must be made by a unit or district.

Fee schedule for independent girls will be determined at a later date as they are placed in patrols.

Can I get a refund if I register and then find I need to cancel?

No refunds will be given after the payment due date of April 15 as camp expenditures based on registration at that time will have commenced.

If individual girls withdraw from a patrol, the approach outlined above applies.  Patrols may substitute girls up to April 15th 2020.

*Once the April 15th date is past, no further substitutions to be made

The policy on refunds for independent girls will be determined at a later date as they are placed in patrols.

How can Patrols make registration payments to Newfoundland and Labrador Council?

Fees are to be paid by (post-dated) cheque, cash or credit card on:

 April 15, 2020.

Can screened non-member volunteers attend AllSySTEMsGo! 2020?

No - Patrol Guiders must be registered members.  The primary reason for this is that Patrol Guiders need to be able to fulfill all the responsibility of a Guider, independently if necessary.  Safe Guide places limitations on non-member volunteers with respect to supervision of girls that will preclude them from being able to fulfill these responsibilities fully.  

An exception to this is for chaperones for special needs.

Does my patrol need to submit an FR1 for AllSySTEMsGo! 2020?

If your patrol is fundraising to attend AllSySTEMsGo! 2020, you need to submit an FR1 with the details of your fundraising projects outlined, including the required amount from cookie sales (25% of target amount to be fundraised).   If all of your fundraising will be done through cookie sales OR if you are not fundraising at all, no FR1 is required.

If I am bringing a partial or half patrol, will independent girls be assigned to my patrol?

We would like as many girls as possible to attend AllSySTEMsGo! 2020 including those without a patrol.  We are accepting registrations from independent girls but are wait-listing them pending identification of places to put them in patrols.  We will not place any independent girls in any patrols without the concurrence of Patrol Guiders.
