MEETING CLOSE: 9:30 pm
LOCATION: Hall (See comments, 2018-Apr-17)
Organised by: Liam

As discussed, I am proposing a unit in council for the 17th of April. All positions will be vacated, meaning we will have a full Unit Council election as per our constitution.
— Liam Robertson, Unit Chair

Venturer Units are run by a group of elected youth members who along with the Venturer Leaders form the Unit Council. Ideally the Unit Council meets once a month and Unit Council positions are elected every 12 months. The Unit Council members are: Unit Chairman, Deputy Unit Chairman, Unit Secretary, Unit Treasurer, Unit Equipment Officer (Quartermaster) and Unit Log Book Officer.

PROPOSED AGENDA
0.0 Unit Council Election – Please read through the Unit Council – Job Descriptions before attending so that we can launch straight into the elections.

.. 0.1 Unit Council positions declared vacant. Leaders will assist with the election until a new Unit Chair is elected.

This Week 2018-Mar-27 Knot another knot knight

This week we will be playing with rope, knotting with knots, curling some cords and discovering the difference between a bend and a sheet.

Knots
Not nautical speed but
the tangling
not mere tangles but artful
turnings
not turnings but
something like
writing all on the same
spot: the knot.

2018 Duckchaser workshops – enrol now


Diamond Creek Venturer’s annual ducky workshop will start next term on Wednesday nights.
If you are interested & can get to Kangaroo Ground on Wednesdays read on …

Bugs: Wabbit season.
Daffy: I say it’s duck season. And I say fire! ❞

It’s Duckie season!
Those intending/wanting to build duckies this winter with Diamond Creek Venturers please post on this thread with a commitment that your are going to proceed with the project – both for the time required (possibly two nights a week) and the $ for materials. There is a fair bit of preparation work required before we start building and firm commitments are required to enable the planning to be successful. The plan is to start the build next term so hopefully they’re all complete BEFORE the warm weather comes back!

1.) Indicate on the 1st Eltham Venturer Web site (via comments) or on the 1st Eltham Venturer Facebook that you are in for the build.

2.) Join the Duckchaser Group on Yahoo/Groups.
(Please email Don Nicholson on maintann@stevennicholson.com and he will issue invitations.)

3.) Once you are a member of the Yahoo Group – You’ll then need to download the Mk3 version of the instructions found in the files section and READ it. Alternate instruction download site.
(Don doesn’t expect you all to understand fully how a duckies goes together but will get cranky when he finds out that the builders haven’t bothered to learn what they can before starting & expect him to hold their hand all the way.)

4.) approx. $220/kit (tbc) – includes everything but the paint!

NOTE: Venturers planning to use the duckie building for their badgework will need to submit their plan to the Unit Council for approval and have it entered into the minutes. Please use the Badge Activity Statement v1.0 [PDF] form when submitting a badge work proposal to the Unit Council.
(You may wish to sketch out a longer term plan with the ducky build being VA Pursuits, earning the canoe/kayak/duckie charge certificate for VA Outdoors and finish off with an on the water camping trip for your VA Expedition?)
