Venture Crew 47 (KB1PAL) is looking forward to another exciting year. A full calendar of events ranging from first aid classes to hands on operating is in store. In September the Crew will be providing communications support for the Aquila District Camporee at Camp Carpenter in Manchester New Hampshire. This event is a great opportunity to give the scouts hands on experience and to expose new faces to Amateur Radio.
The Crew will also be participating in the Jamboree on the Air (JOTA), a world-wide on air gathering of scouts. JOTA will take place on October 20th. We will be assisting with communications for a Railroading Merit Badge excursion that weekend as well. Other events scheduled for this year include: First Aid Training, Leadership Training, a mountain trip, and participation in the District’s Klondike Derby, Venturing Weekend, and the Spring Camporee.
Venture Crew 47 is a co-ed crew and is part of the Boy Scouts of America’s Yankee Clipper Council, in Northeastern Massachusetts. We are sponsored by the North Shore Radio Association in Peabody. As always the Crew is looking for more members. If you, or someone you know, is between the ages of 14 and 20, has completed the eighth grade, and is interested in joining the Crew or has any questions about what we do, please contact us by sending an email to firstname.lastname@example.org. The Venturing program is a great way for young men and women to get involved in our hobby…e-mail us to sign up today!
