The past month has been a little crazy for S.S.S. Heatwave.
A week after presenting colors at the Las Vegas Area Council Banquet, we traveled to Long Beach for the Long Beach Invitational Regatta. There we reunited with the Conquest, who we went on Long Cruise with. Together, we competed as one team. We did many events such as navigating, rowing, rowing a boat without rows (which we also did at the Ultimate Venturing Challenge last September), life jacket drills, Taboo, tying a human bowline, knowing the Sea Promise, Jeopardy, and much more! After the competitions, there was Hells Drill. We had pizza with the Conquest and stayed on their boat that night. It was a great event and I made some new friends.
Then, the week after that, I attended University of Scouting which was put on by the Las Vegas Area Council. It was held at the College of Southern Nevada in North Las Vegas. It was an event for leaders to attend trainings for Cub Scouts, Boy Scouts, and Venturing. Jake from the Raven and I sat up a landship and booth to promote Sea Scouting in our area. We had a lot of fun representing Sea Scouts at the event.
In addition to those events, we have been selling Las Vegas Area Council campcards like crazy to fundraising for all of our upcoming trips. There’s a lot in store for our ship for the next month and I’m looking forward to it.
