Pack Reminder: Scout and Den Data for Derby

Posted on Jan 26 2010 - 12:10pm

A reminder (in addition to the general reminder about the Need for Volunteers in advance of Derby Day, and the reminder that to "Log In", Username = member, Password = member1): each Pack has been asked to send to the Derby Commissioner the actual names of Scouts who will (or might) attend (we have responses at this hour from 374, 7040 and 631, thanks!).  This request is because we're gonna have a HUGE Derby (here's the estimates of Pack attendance), and to make things like Check In (data entry into the Scoring System) and awards (like Design Award Certificates), having this in advance is a big help.  Also, Packs can use those names for the Drivers Licenses that Clinton Hope of Pack 711 is putting together (with John Stringer of 374 and Genelle Jefferson of Pack 711): they would need the photos of your Scouts who want licenses, along with (identified to each Photo): (a) name, (b) height, (c) weight, (d) hair color, and (e) eye color.   (Evidently the template they have will take all of that data -- you can guess as needed on height, weight).

Help Haiti

Posted on Jan 16 2010 - 3:28pm

From the Scouting Magazine Blog on January 15: "We're still learning the full extent of the devastation caused by Tuesday's earthquake in Haiti, but we do know one thing: the people of Haiti need the world's help to recover from this tragedy.  We're sure that many of you in the Scouting community have already stepped up, but if you're still looking for the best way to do a good turn for the Haitian people, read the BSA's official response. Here's the complete text of the statement:  "Our hearts and prayers go out to the people of Haiti. Many members of the BSA family want to provide assistance to the people affected by this horrific earthquake.  Based on the information we have to date, the most immediate needs are for medical attention, food, water, clothing, and shelter. The most effective way to help is by donating to the American Red Cross, which is a strong ally of Scouting around the globe. While there are no Boy Scouts of America units in Haiti, Scouting is a worldwide brotherhood. We will continue to try to communicate with those in Scouting in Haiti through the Interamerican Region of the World Organization of the Scouting Movement. This region is composed of all the Scout organizations in the Americas and the Caribbean. The BSA will work through this arm to support the rebuilding of Scouting when appropriate."
