The Core Team

Amy Spencer – Event Manager

Amy is a Guide Leader in Bristol North West Division, and first dreamed up the concept of Be Prepared in 2010 and, from the first event with around 60 guides, has led the growth of Be Prepared to the 300 young people we now get every single year!

Dan Spencer – Event Manager

Dan is Group Scout Leader at 66th Bath Scout Group, and has been involved with Be Prepared since its humble beginnings. In 2013 Dan persuaded Amy to allow Scouts to be involved in the event and oversaw the venue move to Cleeve Hill.

Jodi Walsh – Event Control

Jodi joined the core team for Be Prepared in 2016, and is Assistant Group Scout Leader at 66th Bath. Jodi can generally be found lurking in event control with a radio and a laptop, or out on the field solving any challenges that arise during the weekend.

Harold Binley

Harold has been involved with Be Prepared from the early days, and joined the core team for our 2014 event. As well as helping to prepare for the event, Harold can normally be found walking around the site collecting in scores and processing them during the events, or capturing the event on camera.

Amanda Binley

Whether its keeping Amy sane, keeping everyone fed, or making sure that Harold is doing his job properly, Mandy can often be found busily doing something around the event site!
