Hey, Rovers!

All Sydney North Rovers who are prepared to commit to assisting with tower and fox construction at events and displays can undertake the course at a much reduced cost. There are already a number of Crews who are actively involved in the Flying Fox and have a fantastic time giving service back to the other sections of the Movement.

History of Foxing in NSW

Flying Foxes became legal in New South Wales in May 1997. Before that, they were a banned activity and therefore illegal in Scouting. Through the diligent and methodical efforts of some intrepid Leaders who had the strange notion that Scouting is about kids, and that the Flying Fox was an adventurous activity that kids should be able to enjoy, the Flying Fox Policy was born and ratified.
