HUNDREDS of pathfinders are pouring into Honiara as the countdown for the 2019 Trans Pacific Union pathfinder camporee is fast approaching.

Over the past days, pathfinders from Fiji, Vanuatu and the provinces have arrived in Honiara.

Most of the overseas pathfinders are being accommodated at the Burnscreek high school and Betikama in East Honiara, while most of the local pathfinders are taking shelter at the Maranatha Hall.

Many more hundreds are expected to arrive today and in the remaining days.

From overseas, pathfinders from Kiribati, Vanuatu and Papua New Guinea are arriving later this week.

On Wednesday hundreds more arrive from the provinces especially Malaita and Western provinces.

From the Western province some of the pathfinders from Marovo were unable to travel to Honiara on Tuesday evening because MV Fair Glory was fully loaded with pathfinders.

However, Member of Parliament for Marovo has arranged for MV Fair Lady to pick up all the remaining pathfinders from Marovo later this week.

Others were able to board MV Kosco and Vaka Solomon from Marovo on Tuesday.

Registration for all pathfinders will be held on Sunday and Monday next week before the start of the comporee on Tuesday.

As such all the pathfinders are expected to be in Honiara by this weekend.

Meanwhile, work on finalising the campsite is making final progress.

Today will be the final day of work at the campsite.
