Unit Chalks Up National Go-Karting Wins - (no apologies for the pun, Andy)

The VSL writes ...
The Unit has been quite busy since the very successful expedition to Scotland last Summer.   As our membership is steadily increasing, we have plenty of support for activities. This was shown by the activity camp, held in the Wye Valley in November, when fourteen people spent three days canoeing, climbing, caving and horse-riding.   Our second visit to the National Scout Karting Championships resulted in Andrew Chalkley winning the Venture Scout Trophy and, competing against groups from all over England, the Unit team as a whole was equal third.   As well as developing outdoor activities, several successful meetings have been held with a neighbouring Ranger Guide Unit and a joint hike/camp will soon be held.   Another innovation this year was a bi-monthly magazine - 'Venture 44' - more of that elsewhere.     FH
