I wanted to let you know what a fantastic time the Explorers are having at the 14th Venture. 
 The feedback from the expeditions has been very good and all have made lots of friends.
The weather has been very hot but all the explorers have managed to drink plenty and the Unit
 has not had any overheating problems.
The Explorers now are enjoying a programme of offsite activities and live music until the early hours.
