Camporee and Twilight Camp Planning Mtgs, Mar 7th, 6:45 pm

Troops please send an adult as well as a youth who needs leadership to come and help plan the district Camporee before Roundtable.  We want the youth who needs to learn how to be a leader, not necessarily the ones who already are.  They will be selecting and planning this year's competitions that focus on Patrol and Individual Scouting Skills! 

Packs, we need every unit to come and help plan Twilight Camp before Roundtable.  Every unit should be represented.  We need you there.

Roundtable, Thursday, March 7th, 7:30 pm

So this Thursday is Roundtable.  We need you all there.  On the Scouts BSA side we are talking about awards for Scouts and adults that are often overlooked.

On the Cub side we are preparing your for your next month of den meetings and pack meeting and talking about spring recruiting ideas for both adults and youth.

Medieval Times will also be stopping by for a second to tell us about their "Exclusive Scout Show" on April 14th.

The Order of the Arrow chapter meeting also happens during Roundtable...  There will be food and games. You won’t want to miss it!  A reminder that pizza is a dollar a slice. If you would like pizza at the meeting, please bring money.
