This year, the Venture Air Scout Unit was composed of seven active members, with three members newly recruited from the Air Scout Troop this academic year. With the help of the on-leave members, we tried to do our best in organising various activities in this academic year.
The Executive Committee was formed in early September and the investiture ceremony was held in November. We took part in the Caritas Bazaar by setting up a game stall. In Christmas, a camp with Air Scout Troop at Gilwell campsite was organised.
In order to celebrate V.A.S.U.'s twenty-fifth birthday, the anniversary campfire was held on 24th January, 1998. We were glad that we had over a hundred guests invited from other units and companies.
Besides, we jointly organised the Easter Project with 31st I.Co. The function was successful and we could learn some skills in backwoods cooking. As usual, we were invited to participate in many gatherings, campfires and investiture ceremonies of other units and companies throughout the year.
Recently, we are co-organizing a summer project with the 7th I.R.G.S.U. We sincerely hope that this project will be successful and enjoyable.
Finally, I would like to express my gratitude to Mr. Felix Yim, Mr. Howard Tong and Mr. Hau Cheuk Man for their invaluable advice and support.
Thung Chi Ming, Herbert
