It's fantastic to see more Rovers taking part in this programme offered by Rotary New Zealand.
The RYLA programme is run in various locations throughout New Zealand each year and offers a high energy intensive leadership experience for young adults.
The Rovers listed below recently attended the RYLA programme. RYLA stands for Rotary Youth Leadership Award and each participant had been awarded the opportunit...y to participate in the 5-day leadership programme for 18-24 year olds.
Most are fully sponsored by a local Rotary Club around the lower North Island.
Of the 43 participants 8 were Rovers! A big BRAVO to:
Emily van Voornveld
On staff was Olly Ewert, Liam Dick and John Williams

World Scout Moot in Ireland 2021!
Next year marks a huge milestone for Rovers, its our 100th year! #Rovers100 1918-2018.
Five Rovers from Stewart Rover Scout Crew took the plunge in Palmerston North and raised $1018.44 for Heart Kids NZ.
The Heart Stopper Challenge involved the Rovers sitting in an icy cold pool for 6 minutes, with all funds raised going towards improving the lives of everyone living with childhood heart conditions around New Zealand.
We just wanted to share something cool you probably didn't know about our Moot logo!
You probably know that we based our logo on the flag of the E...uropean Union, but did you know that the EU flag only has 12 stars while ours has 24? This is because there are currently 24 New Zealand Rover Crews. We were super excited to be able to incorporate awesome aspects of our country's Rovering into our design, although with the growing number of crews in New Zealand it may soon be no longer relevant. This is exciting in itself because more crews equals more rovers equals more people at Moot! Make sure you register ASAP as tours are selected on a first in first served basis! #LetsGoEuro #EuroMoot
