This is an overnight event normally held at the Scout Hut. It starts around 5:00 pm and runs until about
midnight. The Scouts bring game consoles (Xbox, PS2, Wii), games, and controllers.
Sometimes, someone sets up a Local LAN by linking laptops
together. The boys play computer games all night. A fee is
collected and Pizza is delivered during the night. Various
drinks are available all night (can be lemonade in big coolers).
The next morning, some Scouts participate in the Aley Church Scout Sunday while others take part in the Aley Church pancake breakfast. Those involved in Scout Sunday serve in various roles during the Aley Church Sunday service -- greeters, ushers, readers, etc. Scouts and parents who are associated with the pancake breakfast prepare and serve an all-you-can-eat event for Aley churchgoers.
Scouts may volunteer for just the Scout Sunday events; however, those participating in the electronics lock-in are expected to also perform duties during the pancake breakfast.
Parents drop off their Scouts Saturday afternoon and pick them up around noon on Sunday (after the pancake breakfast).
