The Klondike Derby is scheduled for February 3, 2018. The Leader Guide can be found HERE. One of the challenges will be building a fire in this cold weather and on top of snow. For a review of the different types of fires Scouts can build, check out this article from BACKPACKER MAGAZINE. Sign up for the Klondike Derby will be tonight.
Scouts should be updating their ScoutBook account so that their SPL, ASPL, and PLC can plan meetings effectively. All adults have been sent invitations via email and those adults who have not activated accounts have been re-sent invitations. Information on ScoutBook accounts can be found HERE. Once adults activate their account, Scouts can either use the adult account or adults can create a separate Scout account.
HVC-DRD Merit Badge College information has been tentatively released. This schedule is subject to change as counselors are still being secured, logistics are being worked out, and materials are still being prepared. Scouts will be allowed to register for a maximum of two merit badge workshops – one from the morning session and one from the afternoon session. Adults with knowledge and expertise in any of the fields listed on the flyer are encouraged to contact council to participate as a MB Counselor. There is no fee to register as a MB Counselor, however, Counselors must complete Youth Protection Training (free and available online!).
