  1. We are not running a Varsity Team. It is a Venture Patrol. The Varsity Team Program Features can also be used for Venture Patrols.
  2. If you're referring to my original posting, I am talking about a Venture Patrol, made up of the older boys within our troop. The literature I am referring to is the Varsity Team Program Features, for Varsity Scout Teams and Venture Patrols. (This is directly off the cover.) Alan
  3. Hello, We have a crew member that want to go to Philmont next year but he has to take refrigerated insulin once a day. Do they have the ability to handle this? Do you know of a way to handle this? Thanks, Alan

  7. Hello, We have started a Venture Patrol in our troop. It is my understanding that each VP member can earn the V letter by doing one of the 14 Venture Patrol programs as defined in the Venture pamphlets.
