Rangemaster Certification trainings now posted on Council website

Posted on Mar 3 2015 - 7:24pm

From Tracey Clark Washington: "We have been working to schedule Rangemaster certification in our district, but are unable to get it scheduled this spring. But ... there are now two council-sponsored trainings scheduled this spring and posted on the council website. You will have to register via the AAC website. No walk-up registrations allowed.  March 14th at LDS Church in Dallas, GA, 9a-4p, $12pp, sign up at http://www.atlantabsa.org/event/1684301, or May 2nd at Bert Adams in Covington, GA, 9a-4p, $12pp sign up at http://www.atlantabsa.org/event/1666561 .  We encourage as many leaders as interested to take the Rangemaster certification if you are interested in shooting sports. We always need trained Rangemasters for Twilight Camp and the district fall shooting event. If you do complete the certification, please let us know so we can maintain a district list of certified Rangemasters."  

Want more Scouts and Leaders?

Posted on Mar 2 2015 - 2:32pm

Want more Scouts and Leaders?   Of course you do.  There are things you can do now ... see our Recruiting Tools page for steps you can start right now.  See the Recruiting Steps in these Announcements (email the Webmaster if you need a Login reminder): Recruiting Step One: Calendar of Fun Activities.  Step Two: Identify Leaders and Helpers.  Step Three: Shout it Out! Let Families know your Pack Plan! ... See the Leader’s Guide to Recruiting for more.  And it is OK and a super excellent good idea to advertise fabulous events that don't require you as "Pack Leader" or "Den Leader" to organize your families ... events like Cub Twilight Camp June 15-19, other Cub Day Camps and Twilight Camps, and Cub Scout Summer Resident Camps in June-July -- all of which can be attended by brand new Cub Scouts and (for the Resident Camps) their Parents, and don't need you as Cubmaster or Den Leader to "be in charge" -- but you might find your next Den Leader in a parent who takes her son to one of those events.

Got Photos or Video ... let's Share them so the Community can see what Scouts Do!

Posted on Feb 28 2015 - 1:54pm

See these excellent photos of Derby Daze 2015Cub 'n' Camp o Ree and these from the OA Trailblazer Event where hundreds got to know the Ordere of the Arrow, and these from the Fun Fair at Starr Park here.  See the new District Flickr Photo Site too ... pssst:  got pictures?  We see the Facebook sites of Pack 1030, Troop 150, Pack 543 and others ... we know there are Cub 'n' Camp o Ree pictures and video out there -- let's share them, and share pix and video of any event!  Contact Keir Chapple or Valerie Baldowski and they can get those posted.  So please share those photos of Campout and Campfires!       "Oh, the magic of the campfire!  No unkind feeling long withstands its glow.  For men to meet at the same campfire is to come closer, to have better understanding of each other, and to lay the foundations of lasting friendship. 'He and I camped together once!' is enough to explain all cordiality between the men most wide apart, and Woodcraft days are days of memories happy, bright and lifelong." -- Ernest Thompson Seton

The big focus of the February 5 District Committee and Commissioner meeting was: Our Packs, Troops and Crews, who they are, and how we can help.  Quick Ways we can help:  Youth want Action and Activities, so we've got those, with District Events like Cub Twilight Camp June 15-19, and Cub 'n' Camp o Ree October 2-4, plus our widely acclaimed "Month by Month Activity Ideas" page, including the famous Great Big List of Things to Do and Places to Go Around Atlanta and environs, which includes plenty of Altanta Area Council resources, like the many Camping Options for all of our units.  Want to help other units?  See our District Help Wanted page.
