  • The District Pinewood Derby is Saturday, March 24 from 9:00 am till 1:00 pm at St. Luke UMC. See the District website for details and rules.

  • Training: New plan for this year. Rather than offering “Mega Training” events, units can contact David Williamson and arrange an onsite training if there are four or more leaders who need the same training. (And most training is available online as well.) Be sure to check your training records, especially after online courses. Some are not “registering”. Also, if a group takes a course together on one screen, only the person who is registered on the device will get credit. BUT if you send the information to David Williamson davidandjoyce2@gmail.com, he can get your records updated.

  • The District Spring Camporee is up in the air. Troops need to tell Camping Chair Bill Owen ASAP if they would rather have an event on April 20-22 or to cancel the event. The next Council Camporee is Oct. 12-14. w.e.owen82@gmail.com
