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 and that_guy_zach, both now adults. These two, plus Derek, join Nikki among the Silver Set.
