|Live with Nature Camp- 1-2 November 1997
7 members of the Crew took a weekend to live with the nature at the
Sugud Recreational Forest, Penampang District. Although the night hasn't
been too kind to the crew with the heavy downpour and the thunderstorms,
the camp paid off with the trip to a waterfall on the next day.
The Sugud Recreational Forest covers an area of 425.10 hectares of lush
jungles offering outdoor facilities like campsites, yet not far from town
(Only about 25 kilometres from Kota Kinabalu). The attractions includes
the waterfalls and the viewing tower on top of hill. The Forest is maintained
by the State's Department of Forestry.
UUM Kelanasiswa conquered Mt. Kinabalu
Some 40 Rovers or Kelanasiswa from the University Utara Malaysia (UUM)
visited Sabah from 17 until 29 November 1997.They called the project as
"Kinabalu Quest" as their main mission to Sabah is to climb Mt.
Kinabalu. Besides climbing the mountain they also visited the Tunku
Abdul Rahman National Park and not forgetting lending a helping hand during
the Traffic Games (See separate news).
5 members of the Crew have offered their service during the
West Coast South Zones Shell Traffic Games on the 8 November 1997. This
is also in line with the Rover's Motto that is "Service".
