Hello out there,
My name in Michael Hosemans and I am a Rover in the Lord Casey Rover Crew,
at present in Somers Area (about to become Southern Metro Region), Victoria.
I have been a Rover for the past 6 years, and have enjoyed every minute of it.
I am an active member of my Rover Crew as well as on Area level. At present,
I am training and Development Officer of Somers Area Rover Council.
I am presently in my last year in Bachelor of Digital Systems degree at Monash
University, Clayton, (Caulfield Tuesday Afternoons), Victoria, Australia.
Interests are in Caving, Bush walking, Rock Climbing and Cycling. And in lots
of other activities, I will almost give anything a go.
At present our Area is megering with the Area next door and becoming a "Super
Region", (taking effect as of 1st May), which I am against but we have no say
in it. The Area Commissioners have decided that this is the way to go and we
have to move along with the times.
It is easier for the other sections for they don't run themselves, but Rovers
run Rovers, and in our Area monthly meetings, is where we receive all our
infomation and organise events, with the doubling of the size of the Area. I
think it is putting more work load on the few that will run the Region. And
thus there is not as many people invloved in Running the Section. Even though,
there will be a few more running the Region, lots of people will miss out in
getting involved in helping run Rovers.
This is our Area's biggest problem at present, and even though I can see some
good points, I see it a step back in the wrong direction.
I am looking forward in reading the information that Scouts-L offers,
Yours in Scouting
