Hi all, We're starting to plan our Pack Holiday for next year, and the one place I would really like to offer is quite expensive, and for a group of 20 it's far too cost prohibitive (Yes, we do fund raise, but don't get enough to make it a lot cheaper) 30 girls would ideally make it an 'acceptable' price for what would be on offer, but i'm in two minds about offering it to another unit. So, there are 2 other Brownie groups in our district, one does their own residentials and is going to France next year, the other is a smaller group where the leaders have no Going Away with License. They have a very low number of girls who won't get the opportunity to go on pack holidays with their group and are a very small group. My thoughts are (And this is where I would like your advice!) 1. Run a trip for just my Brownies to another centre where it's cheaper? 2. Run a trip to the larger centre and offer the spaces to the smaller unit who don't do residentials? Now, i'd like to do 2, however this leaves me in a bit of a dilemma - I don't want it to seem like i'm trying to poach their girls. I have a waiting list of 15, they have a lot of spaces and they're 3 mins down the road, but I don't want it to seem as though i'm trying to prove my group is better by taking them away for the weekend as I don't have space. (Also, we've tried to persuade my waiting list to go there, but as they're all Rainbows then they're not actually waiting for a space at this moment!) But am I going to make the girls expect a residential either with me or with their group each year which I don't think they will get? Obviously I'm only considering inviting them so I can take my girls to a specific place with bigger activities and buildings than the other options! What are your thoughts? What would you do?
