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 entry…answer queries…..brainstorm event youth section leaders.

Team members are encouraged to find their niche contribution. Everyone has something to offer.

Human Resources of the FoQs

Here is a sample of the world experience that lurks within the FoQs: Retired or still working: Storeman, Electrician, Plumber, Tiler, Accountant, Bank manager, teacher, nurse, paralegal, carpenter, fire services technician, IT, Requisitions guru, Chef, gardener and the rest I don’t know. Scouting experience: Joey, cub, Scout, Venturer Leaders, Rover Advisers, Group Leaders, District and region commissioners, Leader trainers and more. Come and join us for as much or as little as you can 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.

How to get started?

No need to wait for an invitation….come along to the Q Store and check it out….
