Happy Birthday Boy Scouts!

It's that time of year again.  We are all busy and there are tons of things going on with Scouting!  Our Friends of Scouting campaign starts this month and someone should be contacting you regarding when your Blue & Gold Banquet is taking place, or your next Court of Honor.  One of us will be attending for FOS.

Thank you again to everyone who got their Recharters turned in on time!  I cannot thank you enough. 

Roundtable is February 14 at 6:30pm at Fort Oglethorpe United Methodist.  Just in case you are not aware, Roundtable isn't just for Scoutmasters and Cubmasters.  It is for all Den Leaders, Assistant Scoutmasters, and Unit Committees.  This month we will be having Chinese (yes!  finally a break from Fazoli's).  If you choose to eat, it is $5 at the door.  I also realize that this is Valentine's Day, but I am banking on the fact that most of you will either go out the weekend before or the weekend after to celebrate.  However, feel free to bring your spouse to this Roundtable.  Our main topic of the evening will be unit leader awards and requirements.  So many of you qualify for awards and yet don't have them so let's fix that!

Redistricting is take place as we speak, but we were not severely wounded by the Council's decision.  We did lose a troop and two packs, but have maintained our original district.

Lions will be in full force by the start of next year for all units!  Time to start making some preparations for that change as well.  This means that all Cub Scout Packs will have a Lions Den for kindergartners. 

Besides the big events listed below, the following events are also occurring:
  1. Wilderness Remote Training - February 18th/March 4
  2. Trainers EDGE - March 11
  3. Leader Specific Training - March 18
  4. Merit Badge College - March 18
  5. John Ross District Camporee/Camporall - March 24-26
  6. Lion & Tiger Safari - April 14 & 15
For more information on any of the events, please contact Barry Fisher at the Scout Office.  I just want to make sure you pencil in the dates for your units!
