Road Rally! June 28th - Register Now



The Venturing road rally is coming up on June 28th, beginning at 1pm. This year we will be staging the rally in Iowa. The starting point is yet to be determined but we will be ending near Maquoketa. The activities after the rally will be caving at Maquoketa Caves, eating delicious BBQ, and going to see an actual drive in movie.

Registration info can be found HERE
Registration must be in to the council office by June 20th

If you haven't been to a road rally before it is a timed driving event from point to point. Your crew should form teams of up to four people, with one of those being an adult, and at least one being a licensed driver. You will explore the countryside of Iowa looking for your points. Teams gain or lose points by being on time and by answering questions at those points. If you're caught speeding you lose all your points for that stage.

If you can't find enough people to form a team please contact Jon Terry (jeterry@gmail.com) or myself and we'll get you set up. We don't want anyone to miss out.

Sunday Service


The Quad City Botanical Center is building a children’s garden of a substantial size and the VOA is planning to help. They will also be enlarging the garden train which was Caleb Koch’s Eagle project. This is a great opportunity for us to show the community how great the venturing program is and get some service hours in as well.

We plan to start at 11:00am, Sunday April 13th, at the QC Botanical Center in Rock Island.

For those attending Ranger Escape this will be part of our Sunday activity.
Everyone else is highly encouraged to come as well. We are hoping to pull out a big crowd for this, please feel free to bring anyone along who wants to help.
