Class "B" Uniforms

I bought some iron-on's and some really cheap shirts so that we have a Class "B" Uniform. I am excited to give it to the Crew at our next meeting. I also detailed out some duties for the President of the Crew. Here are some of his duties.

Venture Crew President

  • Schedule Wednesday activities with Crew Advisors
  • Assign duties for Weekly activities
  • Review Venture activities with Leaders and Scout Committee
  • Decide on a Crew Focus
  • Decide on Crew Logo
  • Decide on Crew Uniforms and when to wear them
  • Assign Campout duties and High Adventure duties
  • Make sure each Crew Member reaches Eagle Scout Rank
  • Have each Crew member focus on one Venture Bronze Award IE:
    • Arts and Hobbies
    • Sports
    • Religious Life
    • Outdoor
    • Sea Scout

    So, I think we will talk about these duties at our next Crew Meeting. I hope it goes over well. I'll let you all know what happens. Well, I don't think anyone is reading this blog so I guess it is just for myself.

    I have been called to be the new Young Men's President in our Ward. This means that I will be working with the Venturing Crew. I was the Assistant Scout Master before so I know how the Scouting program should be run but I need to learn what the Venturing program is all about.

    In our first meeting I had the boys vote on a President, Vice President, Secretary and Treasurer. We also setup some activities for the year. I assigned two boys to come up with a logo for a Crew so we could start work on a uniform. We also need to decide what the focus of our Crew will be. The only thing that they all have in common is our religious beliefs. So, maybe we will have to go with that as our focus.

    One other issue is that only one of our Crew has his Eagle Scout. So, we will really need to focus on finishing their Eagle stuff as well as trying to get them through the Venturing Program. I'll let you know how we progress from here.

    My first blog.

    Well, I'm not sure what I am going to post on my first blog but I have some ideas of what I want it to focus on. I hope some people will add to the discussion so that I am not out here talking to myself.
