Family Friends of Scouting

 

It’s time to schedule your unit’s Family Friends of Scouting presentation.  Without this financial support from our leaders and our scouting families, the Golden Spread Council would not be able to provide the quality programs, training and facilities you expect, for our scouts.  Plan on having a Family Friends of Scouting presentation at your next pack meeting, or troop court of honor.  Call Steve Knollenberg at 580-651-2615, or Audrey House at 580-652-2085, to schedule a presentation that is convenient for your unit.

 

Palo Duro Lake Cleanup

 

The annual Palo Duro Lake cleanup was held on Saturday, March 21, 2009, near Spearman, Texas.  The Palo Duro River Authority was very pleased with the results of this year’s cleanup.  Our scouts collected over 40 bags of trash, numerous tires and other junk from the lake property.  Lunch was provided by the Palo Duro River Authority, to all our scouts and leaders.  Many thanks to Richard Nowlin for chairing this year’s successful cleanup, and to all the Boy and Girl Scouts and leaders who attended!

 

District Pinewood Derby

 

Mark you pack calendars now for the District Pinewood Derby.  Please note there has been a date change.  This is an open Derby for all District Cub Scouts, not just individual Pack champions.  There will be an “Outlaw” class for all dads, moms, sisters, aunts, uncles, grandparents, etc.  The Derby will be held on Saturday, April 4, 2009, at the First United Methodist Church, in Turpin, OK.  Sign up and weigh-in time starts at 9:30 a.m.  Race starting time is 10:00 a.m.  Bring your Cubs to Turpin for a fun day of racing & fellowship!  Rumor has it the District Executive is building his own car and wants to run it at the District Derby!  Past experience tells me it will be the slowest car racing.

 

Guymon Day Camp Needs Volunteers

 

For us to have a Guymon Cub Day Camp this summer, we need two volunteers to be the Camp Director and the Program Director.  If we can’t fill these two positions, we won’t be able to offer the camp at Guymon this summer.  With these two positions filled I believe we can staff the activities and events with adults attending, with their boys; but we will need two volunteers to provide overall leadership and coordination.  For more information please contact Scott Killian at 806-358-6500, or Steve Knollenberg at 580-651-2615.

 

2009 Summer Camp

 

Last year only 34.5 percent of our council’s Boy Scouts and 47.9 percent of our council’s troops attended a long-term summer camp, anywhere.  This includes troops that went out-of-council for their summer camp experience.  We need to raise this percentage!  Summer Camp is designed to be the Troop’s program highlight of the year.  We are robbing our boys of a tremendous experience, which they will remember for the rest of their lives, when they don’t go to summer camp!  We still have space available at M.K. Brown and it’s not too late to sign up.  If you have not seen a copy of the 2009 Leader’s Guide, click here:
