Patrol Calendar / Schedule

Please familiarise yourself with the Patrol Expectations. Be sure to check your patrol start and finish times. It is important that you inform your Patrol Captain ASAP if you are unable to attend a rostered patrol. If you fail to attend a rostered patrol without notifying your Patrol Captain beforehand you will lose your active member access to the club until you attend another patrol.
