The Penrith City Monopoly Run is back and all groups in GWS are welcome to come and play!
We have turned key locations within the greater Penrith area into Monopoly Board Squares. Your teams job is to travel around by foot or train/bus (No Bikes, Scooters or Cars - Sorry Guys) and find each of our key locations.
When you are there, take a photo of your team and send it to us - If you are the first team to arrive, you have the option of buying the location and earning rent from other teams - otherwise you will need to pay rent :(
The team with the most money at the end of the game wins!
Following the event, we will all join together back at the Lethbridge St Scout Hall (Monopoly HQ) for a BBQ meal.
Bring your own Lunch, Opal Card and Snacks. Cost of event is for Event Costs, BBQ and trophies.
