'WellyVent' 2019

posted May 31, 2020, 12:56 AM by Group Leader
Wellington Venturers is a combined Unit of Mount Stuart and Lenah Valley Scout Groups.

It has been a great 12 months with Welly Vents and some strong numbers as we’ve had a number of Scouts from Mount Stuart come through.

As usual for the Venturer age section, there are many competing commitments with sports, study, and casual jobs so there were some quiet weeks throughout the year. Fantastic to see commitment from those who were able to come weekly and actively contribute to the program in a big or small way.

Program highlights for the year:
  • Ice Blocking
  • Cooking challenges and mystery can nights
  • Attending Cracker Night & Group Camp
  • Random games nights
  • Pizza night at The Lea
  • Night hikes
  • Indoor and outdoor climbing
  • State Venture
  • Many nights on the water in various crafts especially patrol boats in late 2019
  • Scout Guide Regatta
We mixed it up for the formal dinner break-up after many years at Pizza Hut. Both Venturers and Leaders donned the formal/ beach theme and met at North Hobart McDonald’s for a formal dinner and awards celebration. This was also our farewell to
Thomas as he is moving onto Welly Rovers and wish him all the best of his Rovering journey.

2020 looks good as we have a lot of young, keen Venturers wanting to work on an interesting and expansive program.
