Webelos Version of "Fun and Flexible" Fast Tracks now Available

Posted on Nov 11 2009 - 8:30am

As noted in the Announcement "Changes to Cub Scout Program Coming . . . (less "themes", more "Fast Tracks")", the "Fast Tracks" advancement-based meeting program plans are the Template for the Den Leader's Guide that will be issued in 2010.  The District Cub Trainer's initial comment about the "Fast Tracks" advancement-based meeting program plans was that Fast Tracks needs supplements in two main areas: how to make it fun (since they've edited out most of the game/fun elements), and creating "options" for more simple or equally good common sense alternate activities.  The District Cub Trainer has now created expanded versions of these meeting plans to add in "Fun" and "Options" for Tiger, Wolf and Bear, and now Webelos also, all available for the public as well, in our new "Den Meeting Playbook (and Fun Fast Tracks)" page.  Do good things today.

Sign Up for Swim Lessons!! (Updates in Comments Below)

Posted on Oct 14 2009 - 8:07am

Sabana Baptiste of Pack 9000 is trying to get her Scouts into Swimming Lessons (not just for Webelos Aquanaut and Bear, Wolf and Tiger requirements, but for making sure our Scouts can swim), and she invites ALL South Fulton District Packs to join her . . . but to do so, we need to be sure that she (and you) can get the Group Rate, so please <click here and add a comment> or <click here> to sign up for these; the plan is for these to start on November 7, and continue on November 14, 21, and December 5th (but don't fail to sign up if you can't make them all -- it will be worth it to get half or most of these). More information: this would be done at on Saturdays at Welcome All Park, and to get the group rate we need at least 5 boys. Cost would be $25 for 4 lessons (we understand -- Park is confirming -- obviously, with more commitment, it may be possible to get the best rate.
