Venture & Rover Expedition Challenge

Well done to the two teams who successfully completed the Expedition Challenge this weekend. The Expedition’s theme was “introduction to the Explorer Belt” and the venue was the Greater Limerick Area. The aim was to introduce the Ventures and Rovers to the format of events such as the Venture Scout Challenge and the Explorer Belt.

After spending a night in the Scout Hall, Team 1 (Brian and Thomas) were dropped off in Sixmilebridge while Team 2 (Aaron and David) were dropped off in Obriens bridge. Both teams had until 3pm the next day to arrive at the Castleconnell scout campsite having hiked 30km. They also had to write a logbook and complete 2 projects. After an interview both teams were awarded the Expedition Certificate by Ast. Venture Scouter/Expedition Coordinator Barry Kennedy. Thanks to Mark Hempenstall who was the driver and Terrance Shine of the 26th Limerick for letting us use the campsite. Reports & photos to come

Ventures & Rovers play monopoly

Ventures & Rovers on Monopoly Run

Last night three teams of ventures or rovers (David & Aaron, Brian & Thomas and Daragh & Diarmuid) took to the streets of Limerick to take part in a real life game of monopoly. The teams had one hour to go to every street on their list (streets were worth between 10 and 50 points). Every 200 points earned they could get a chance card such as go to jail, pick up a copy of the limerick post or take a photo from a height.

After an hour and a half the teams returned to GO (The Richard Harris Statue) where Barry checked their photos and counted up their points. In the end Brian and Thomas were the winners.
