The October Bank Holiday weekend brought some 30 Ventures from Roscrea (Tipperary), Durrow (Laois), Killaloe (Clare) and Meelick (Limerick) to complete a 5 day and 4 night joint Residential Project as part of their Chief Scout Award Project.
Completing the Chief Scout Award project comes with the added bonus of the recipients also qualifying for their Presidents / Gaisce award.
On Friday night the Ventures and their Leaders met at the National Water Activities Centre in Killaloe; after some food it was time for the Ventures to get to know one another. On Saturday morning everyone was up bright and early and off on the water along the Shannon Canoeing and Kayaking. In the afternoon the Ventures undertook the community element of their weekend. The gutters at the National Water Activities Centre were cleaned out and some weeding done as well as the commencement of the painting of the Boat Store shed and Wardens/Staff building. Saturday evening brought a welcome trip to the Chippers in Killaloe.
