Thank you for a great COLD RUSH!

We had a great time at Camp Roland learning about  GEOSCOUTING (web site: geoscouting.com)
and honing our skills on Saturday. Thank you to Troop 1 for working so hard to set up the caches last week and "running the show today. Lots of folks contributed to make this a successful event. Thanks again to the Scouts and Leaders from Troop 1, especially Barry Nowlin, Bill Cooley and Ed Evans. Thanks to Bill Cooley, Charlie Shortt, Charles Truckenmiller, and Nick Shortt for their help in the kitchen and to Brandon Evans for offering grace before the meal


The PowerPoint presentation will appear here as soon as Ed emails it to me. Check back soon!

Winners in the Cornbread Contest were Troop 252 (Jenny Fisher) in the adult division and Troop 436 in the Scout category. There were lots of great examples displaying some mighty fine cooking skills. Thanks to all the competitors.

We have begun the preliminary planning for the Spring Camp in April. Scouts who participated in the Geocaching training and search today will have an opportunity to complete their geocaching merit badge at Spring Camp. Stay tuned for more details


 Bill Cooley and Barry Nowlin are ready
, willing and able to help you wrangle your adults. They will be glad to meet with your Scout parents (or other interested adults) to get your Troop moving!

ADVANCEMENT NEWS

Our advancement chair, Mr. Dan Cook, is in charge of advancement and will be happy to share the proper procedures to follow for advancement, Eagle Projects, merit badge counseling and more.

    Our Advancement Chair has done a great job of keeping up with current merit badge counselors. A link to all counselors that we have on file is here: MB Counselor list. This list is not perfect (but it's pretty close!). Please contact Dan Cook to update, add to, or correct the list. Also let Dan know if you would like to be removed from the list. Please remember that it is up to each counselor, and those who choose to use the counselor, to ensure that his/her Youth Protection Training is up to date. Dan Cook (540) 544-7100.

    As you can see, we are blessed with many knowledgeable, caring, and WILLING volunteers in our District. Thanks to all of the adults who give so freely of their time each week at Scout meetings and for the "special" effort that you give for events like those mentioned above. You are the best!

    IF you are planning to do any event that involves any climbing or rappelling you must have TRAINED staff present. Please contact Tim Wallace if you would like to be trained.
