Spring Camporee 2019: What you need to know

Here are a few things you need to know for Spring Camporee 2019.

  1. Location: Willow Creek Reservoir 
  2. Troops need to bring drinking water as the only water source is the lake
  3. There are above ground fire pits
  4. Scouts will need to have fishing license if they want to fish

You can find information about fishing license here: http://bit.ly/2JiB99T.

And where to buy them here: http://fwp.mt.gov/fish/license/licenseProviders.html

The weather looks like it might be rainy but thankfully maybe not windy but the forecast is waffling back and forth so please prepare for both.

This Week in Scouts: March 22

Camping Season is Here!

Scouts salute the flag at Camporee.

Spring is upon us and so is camping season!

Plans are underway for both Trail to First Class on April 12-14 (find the Trail to First Class Leader Guide here and don’t forget to register for IOLS/BALOO Training) and Spring Camporee on May 17-19.

Please contact Gene, for more information about Trail to 1st Class, or Forrest about Camporee.

Fundraising in Choteau

Tonight is our first rural ICL event in Choteau. The District is hosting a spaghetti dinner starting at 6:30p, and it is going to be a great night for Scouting (And a lovely night for a drive out to Choteau ????)!

Scouting for Food

Scouting for Food pick up is tomorrow – stay tuned for the results! Food will be set out at 8 a.m. and picked up after 9. New this year, Scouts and Scouters are asked to enter the Great Falls Food Bank through the main door, not the garage door, to help with unloading. Vehicles may still use the garage door but pedestrians please use the front door.

Rotary Eagle Luncheon

The Rotary Eagle Lunch is coming up on April 9. If you are planning to attend please contact Bill, 406-761-7746.

A few notes from the OA

OA Elections are fast drawing to a close. If any Unit is still wanting to hold an election, please contact Gene Cantley ASAP.
Also a few reminders to the Troops: you need to contact Gene with numbers of youth and adults who will be attending Trail & what their Troop will be teaching if they have not already done so.
Plus most importantly the Scoutmaster Dutch Oven Cooking competition secret ingredient is Jalapenos NOT sauerkraut.
