        VOA Elections are coming up! October, our next meeting is time for nominations. If you or a member of your crew is interested, please be sure to attend and  nominate them or yourself. Thank you!
    Choosing new dates for VOA:
        As conflicting schedules make meeting every month harder, Paula Boothe proposed that during the next calendar year, the VOA meets every three months as opposed to every month. This proposal was also linked to perhaps have the meetings scheduled as to occur at major Venturing activities; VLSC, RangerQuest, etc.
    Sports Chalet Gift Wrapping: December
        Sports Chalet asks for volunteers to wrap gifts outside local Sports Chalet in uniform. It is highly recommended as a form of advertising Venturing, and while sales are not allowed, a tip jar is recommended. All supplies are provided. Contact your local Sports Chalet for more information or ask Pat Rodgers for more details. TOUR PERMITS ARE REQUIRED!

Advisor’s Minute: Paula spoke about her happiness seeing the many crews present. As the future of scouting, Venturer’s need to promote the fun, camaraderie, and fellowship found in scouting, and specifically venturing.
