Countdown to Three Peaks
The Venturers leave for the UK two weeks from today.
Much to get done. Group not yet acting like a group, all acting like individuals on spokes connected to hub (me). Very uncomfortable-feeling.
Taking one young lady shopping today for her Venturing uniform. We've never been very uniform-conscious, but we will be touring the home of Scouting, staying in Scout camps, so we'd better look the part. Plus, a uniform always subs for dress clothes when you're going places like church.
Yesterday, I handed in Derek's Silver Award application. This makes the fourth Silver Award in our eight years of operations. We've only had about twelve people actually join our crew in all that time (though others have shared adventures with us from other units). Those dozen or so youth have earned ten Bronze awards, four Golds, four Silvers, and two Rangers. I'm proud of our Venturers, and proud of our Crew's record. The two Rangers are stryck
, both now adults. These two, plus Derek, join Nikki among the Silver Set.
