This Week 2018-Jun-12 Hang swing (knots)

How do you like to go up in a swing,
Up in the air so blue?
Oh, I do think it the pleasantest thing
Ever a child can do!

Up in the air and over the wall,
Till I can see so wide,
Rivers and trees and cattle and all
Over the countrysideβ€”

Till I look down on the garden green,
Down on the roof so brownβ€”
Up in the air I go flying again,
Up in the air and down!
— The Swing by Robert Louis Stevenson

This week we could add our own verse;

Up in the air tied into the roof,
Rope and spar combine, so bold,
Groans and strain and certain proof
The knots appear to holdβ€”

It would be worthwhile reviewing the four knots selected by the 1st Eltham Unit Council for the Venturing Skills Award for tonight (Clove Hitch, Truckie’s Hitch, Re-threaded Figure of 8, & Prussik knot). That may assist the knots to hold πŸ™‚

MEETING START: 7:30 pm, 1st Eltham Scout Hall
MEETING CLOSE: 9:30 pm
Organised by: Tori ?

This Week 2018-Jun-05 Pride (Cross dressing formal)

The 1st Eltham Venturer Unit requests the honour of your presence at the formal McDonald’s night. As tonight is a cross dressing formal, formal attire means suit with tails for females (however a tux is just as acceptable; a tie must be worn) and a formal dress for the males means an evening gown. If you have gender dysphoria select the opposite to the formal dress you would normally choose.

Please remember to bring the money for your meal.
You will also need to bring a setting of SILVER cutlery (Knife, fork, desert spoon and tea spoon), crockery (plate, bowl, cup and saucer) and glassware.
Tablecloths, candles, flowers and background music would be appropriate – and will be organised via the Unit Facebook group.
If you have a candelabra or other β€˜over the top’ items for the table; bring them along.

MEETING START: 7:30 pm (McDonalds cnr Bolton & Bridge Streets Eltham)
MEETING CLOSE: 9:30 pm
Organised by: Amelia

This Week 2018-May-29 Tent Surfing

This week we will be β€œTent Surfing”, this involves setting up a dome tent with your ‘team’ and taking a photo before moving onto the next place. The idea is to gain as many of the funniest photos possible in the weirdest places.

Bring a torch, a digital camera (or phone with a camera function).
