All links and additional information has been moved across to the Google calendar listing. This is a change to a full term calendar vs the previous rolling three month calendar. Let us know in the comments if this new format works for you.

NOTE: There are still nights that require a Venturer to organise – look for the ?. Have a look through the list and choose one that you wish to do and let the Unit Chair & Leaders know so we can update the program.

And so that you can start preparing your diary for 2016:

We need to resolve the following asap;
1.) Great Ocean Walk – who’s going? Badge work or fun? Camp site bookings.
2.) Scout night – confirm date with Scouts. Tues 1st March, or the Monday night prior? – Monday 29th Feb 2016 Combined Venturer / Scout Evening
3.) Pizza on the roof (15-Mar-2015) : will need the updated climbing gear and new platform ladder for this night to proceed. Waiting on gear purchase, moved to Q2-2016
4.) High Ropes Camp with Scouts – The selected weekend is Easter, which will clash with Hoadley Hide and Stradbroke Moved to Q3-2016
5.) Sun 6th March 2015 is Clean Up Australia Day. We need to arrange and advertise a β€œPlatypus Project” event as a part of the activities.
6.) Annie’s QS presentation
7.) Annie & Nathan *voted of the Island* the tribe has spoken farewell night, liaise with the appropriate Rover units if they are to be kidnapped that night?
8.) Snorkeling (Feb 6-7) – given how many weekends are now taken, ant the cost of the activity, should we drop this from the Q1 program? No feedback, dropped from program
9.) There is no nine
10.) Tue 8th Mar 2016 – Group BBQ 6:30-7:30pm / Venturers to assist with BBQ
11.) Feb 13-14 2016 – (Unit) Council Camp – with Diamond Ck
12.) RAFTS – Venturers: programmed to build Tue 2nd Feb, race Tue 16 Feb
Scouts: programmed to build Mon 15 Feb, race Sun 21 Feb
Venturers have kickball slip and slide scheduled for the 9th Feb; Emily is ok for the swap with the raft racing so that the raft race can go back to the 9th and we don’t clash at all.
13.) Search & Rescue night moved to Tue 22-Mar-2016
