Who are the FoQs?
The Friends of the Q Store is an eclectic group of men and women. The team is a mix of former Scouters, current Scouters and never were Scouters. No age, experience or gender bias.
What skills are preferred?
The Q Store is a meritocracy….a what? Meritocracy….everyone has something to offer. Make a cuppa…pack a crate..fold a tent …photograph stock..data entry…answer queries…..brainstorm event innovations..help youth section leaders.
Team members are encouraged to find their niche contribution. Everyone has something to offer.

Is there a social component?
Some of the team like to work alone, some like to work with others. Some like to chat, share camping stories (washed away/blown away/starvation/geographically embarassment) and have a coffee. Others like to just be quietly busy.
What is the time committment?
Only got an hour? That’s OK. All snippets and whisps of your time can make a difference.
For people willing to be more involved in Big Events this is also an option both at the Q Store and on-site at Event locations.
