If they completed their Chief Scout's Award, then this is good.. it
should make things a little easier as Venturers. They have the
organization skills to make it work.
Oh yeah, about myself. I've been in Venturers for a year and a half
now, and just got elected company president of the Trinity-Rosemount
(montreal) Venturers. I finished my CS award last year, but this
coming year is my last as a Venturer, before I get too old.
I guess the most important thing I would say about Venturing is that
there is no Venturer Leader. There is an Advisor and a President.
The President should be the main co-ordinator of things. Of course,
that shouldn't be very different from a good Patrol, now should it?
But Venturing is not Scouts anymore, on the other hand.. that's
also important to keep in mind.
Oh, something I like about my company that others don't all do is
a weekly meeting. I find that this is a good thing, because we
don't get into the habit of postponing meetings and not seeing
each other for two months...
