SR-6 at Winterfest 2018

SR-6 Venturing will have a strong presence at Winterfest this year! For those who don’t know, Winterfest is a large-scale annual event held in Gatlinburg, TN, and hosted by the Northeast Georgia Council. Winterfest has been around for 44 years so far, and this year it’s the official event of Southern Region Venturing. And… it’s located within our area!

Winterfest will be held on February 9-11, 2018, at the Gatlinburg Convention Center. The event itself will have a variety of fun activities and competitions for Venturers to enjoy. The Southern Region VOA will be holding a region brunch on Sunday (more information on that here). In addition, the SR-6 VOA will be hosting a meet-and-greet on Saturday evening at 5:30pm EST (watch our Facebook group page for the location)—come meet your SR-6 VOA officers, hear updates from the area, and be there for an Area Venturing Leadership Award presentation.

If you’ll be at Winterfest, make sure to stop by our booth! We’d love to meet you and hear how your crew is leading the adventure!
