Planning for Venture Adventure – Meeting – 15/05/2014

In Attendance: Jenny M, Ian, John, Adam, Jake, and Paul.

The meeting started off with a rant about biodiversity and the problems with Ireland’s current forestry strategy by Ian.

With glazed over eyes the Venture Unit humoured his ramblings and then the meeting started in earnest.

The unit discussed the Venture Adventure Challenge and it was agreed that Paul and Tony would make a team.

Adam, Jake and John are still undecided.

In an attempt to give the lads a better idea of what it would be like it was decided to have a training day for the event.

Because the deadline for entry is June the 1st it was agreed to have this sooner rather than later. Saturday the 24th of May was decided on.

On this day the Scouters would drop the two teams 20km from a finish point and give them some challenges to do on the day thus giving them a good idea of what a day on the challenge would be like.

Action Items:

1. Paul is going to look for a yoga instructor to complete the spiritual spice.

2. Tony will look into the the rock climbing courses at Awesome Walls.
