Posted on Jan 14 2009 - 4:52pm

Deborah Shelton of the City of East Point sent this message: "I would like to notify you of a resource available to all children called Take Me Fishing (TMF). Take Me Fishing is sponsored by the City Of East Point Parks And Recreation Department and the National Recreation and Parks Association. Our goal is to increase awareness and participation of youth ages 6-15 years for fishing and boating. This course will provide basic information to help participants understand and effectively participate in recreational angling and boating. A copy of the course outline has been attached for your review.

Camp Good Turn Days

Posted on Jan 6 2009 - 9:19am

District "Good Turn" Chair Bonnie Winfrey wants to be sure all know that the Atlanta Area Council is sponsoring Camp Good Turn Days on February 28 (at Bert Adams), March 14 (at Allatoona), and April 4 (at Woodruff). The deal is that the Atlanta Area Council needs volunteers to help with several maintenance and improvement projects along with general cleanup at each of our camps. These special workdays are an excellent opportunity to do a good turn for the camp and to enjoy fellowship with other Scouters. Advance registration is required. Use this link to get a form to sign up, and then complete the form and mail or fax to: Good Turn @ AAC Camps, Atlanta Area Council, 1800 Circle 75 Parkway, SE, Atlanta, GA 30339, Attn: Bion Jones, Fax: 770-956-5980 (or, one might guess, email to BJones@AtlantaBSA.org).

. . . oh, and You Can Sign Up to attend the Derby Too! Right Now!

Posted on Dec 16 2008 - 7:47pm

There is a "Register" button in the Pinewood Derby Calendar Entry, a new tool just added in the last week. So, if you want to sign up to attend as a volunteer or leader, please just click your own name as a "Scout". In doing this, remember that, as noted before, this website is an "off the shelf" product built for Boy Scout Troops, so we enters all Unit Leaders as both "Scouts" and "Parents".
