These three (3) meetings are for you to understand what the post is all about, the commitment that is involved, and to immerse you into the explorer life style. This is known as the "Observer Stage". Meetings are held on Thursday's. Check the calendar to the right for meetings.
Things you will need to bring to your first PARTICIPATING meeting:
