Over the October Weekend, our scout den played host to 23 venture scouts from around the county for the county venture scout forum. Over the weekend the ventures took part in workshops on running a venture unit and the county venture programme and had presentations on national events, the explorer belt, youth involvement and the new programme before settling down to work out their motions and programme for the year (without the presence of scouters). On Saturday evening the ventures went to funworld for pool and bowling. 8 ventures from caherdavin participated in the weekend with David Collins elected as our rep on the exec. Photos to come
After the forum the ventures stayed on to do a clean out and inventory of our store room.
