Venturer Scouts Mexican & Chilli Night

Last Monday Night we were meant to go Ice Skating but due the centre not being open Darcie, had to organise something else. Darcie and Doona came up with the idea of a Mexican Night, wear your ponchos and sombreros. We had to go out and do a camera chase. And NO Vehicles were allowed. Here are just some Photos and Videos of us Vennies eating Red and Green Hot Chilli’s. Once again Darcie and Doona you pulled it off. It is great that they can come up with Ideas just like that. Enjoy Watching 🙂

Venturer & Scouts 2010-2011 Windsurf Course Movie

Venturer & Scouts 2010-2011 Windsurf Course Movie

1st Caringbah Venturer Scouts and Scouts made up 13 of the 17 who enjoyed the windsurf course organised for South Metropolitan Region through the Summer of 2010/11.  We started the course on 16th Oct 2010 and completed it 6 months later with an independent 3 day 48km expedition on Lake Macquarie.  We enjoyed 30 lessons collectively totalling over 670 hrs and resulting in 6 of us getting to a standard where we are able to windsurf competently and safely with harness and foot straps in the waves – HURRAY.  A beginner and intermediate course will be run through 2011/12 Summer for Venturer Scouts and Scouts plus a “try windsurf day/night” will be run for Joeys and Cubs – BRING IT ON!  Thanks to everyone who loaned/donated gear to us.

Scouts NSW State Rally – Aug 11

Congratulations all of the scouts that participated this weekend at the State Rally.  You have made the scout leaders very proud with your achievements showing your increased skills and independence.

 A special congratulations to Midgets with Mohawks (PL Jake J, APL Ronan, and valuable patrol members Emerson and Julian) who managed a 1st Place in the South Metropolitan Region.  Really well done guys.

I would also like to quickly thank all of the Leaders and Venturers that assisted with the activity on the weekend.  Your efforts made for extremely smooth running of the activity and I really do appreciate the time and effort you put into this event, and all of scouting youth.  BRAVOOOO.
