3.) BIG BURGER CHALLENGE 2012
We have booked Harkaway Scout camp for the entire weekend, and the Dandy Venturers are staying there Saturday night after the activity, with a couple of leaders.
There is no extra cost for staying Saturday night, as a matter of fact we recomend it as a good way for all Venturers to get to know each other. The Units have a choice of either camping in tents or staying in the bunk house. That decision can be made on the night if you like.If you have any further questions; feel free to return email or contact me on my mobile – 0401 878 355.Goatee (Ian) – Dandenong Venturer Leader.
