Going To The BSA Northeastern Region Area 6 Venturing Phenomenon 2013
On Our Way
Well, in a few days. We're still planning nad packing and everyone is excited about this trip. In central PA a couple hundred kids will be joining together to meet old friends, make new frineds and share what they enjoy doing.
Remember Last Year's Phenomenon?
No??? Well then, check it out.. Yes, we are taking the squeeze box again. Thanks Gina for inviting us. With as much fun as I had running this and talking to a mess of new Venturers about caving, I'm kind of glad I'm only doing it a half day. I get to walk around in the afternoon and check out what other Crews brought with them and see what they do for fun.
Again this year Bill LaPort and Barb Grover, from Crew 94, are coordinating the contingent Venturing Crew from Chester County Council, BSA. This frees me up to just getting the box and a few kids safely there and back again. I can do that.
The Day After Trip,
And of course, just like last year, we're doing a little caving on the way home. But you'll have to wait to hear about that.
Hopefully, if I get cell reception, I'll be tweeting during the weekend. Join me at @youcave. Check us out on Face Book and Google+. And share us with your friends. If you ask a question in the comment section I’ll get back to you as soon as I can.
