Recruiting for Boy Scout Troops ... Go. There's nothing stopping you

Posted on Feb 24 2015 - 11:18am

Troops -- and Scouts in Troops -- should be ready, willing and able to recruit boys, both 5th Grade "crossovers" from Packs, and others age 11 or above ... see this posting on "Bryan's Blog" for tips, and the attached if you want to start with flyers.  (P.S.: Your Boy Scouts can probably create better photo / video / social media messages for thier friends if you let them)  Or you can show them this Atlanta Area Council Movie Trailer from the expanding AAC YouTube site.  And from across the pond, see this video, which is really really well done, as is this one

Derby Daze Times ... District Derby

Posted on Feb 17 2015 - 10:24am

Click this link for Pack Derby Times this Friday and Saturday -- we're expecting Packs 44, 172, 373, 374, 543, 631, 701, 963, 1030, 1341, 1513, 3310, 3353 and 7250, with over 300 Scout Racers so far.  Even if your Pack is not signed up already, your Scouts may sign up for the District Derby, or just to come race on the Silver Fun Track over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over again all day long if you like.  And the District Derby final check in time is 1:00PM on Saturday.  Note to those arriving for the District Derby:   (1) 1:00PM Check In Deadline does not mean “arrive in the building at 1:00PM”  ... it meansthat you’re checked in by 1:00PM, done, not in the repair shop, so that the racing team can be drawing up the heat sheets and not waiting on you!
