Unit Visits

SCHOOL RECRUITMENT IS FINALLY ARE OVER! We did an awesome job with over 300 new scouts and several new units in development in Adobe Walls District. Now that we have them, we need to put together the activities to keep them. During November District Chair- Richard Carter, District Commissioner- Rick Jones, and I will be traveling the district to visit the various units during pack/troop meetings and parent planning meetings.  We already have several scheduled; so please email me at eric.byrne@scouting.org with your November and December unit schedule so we can drop in and say hello.  This is NOT and inspection but an opportunity to put names to faces and meet all the new boys and their families.  We are looking forward to seeing everyone. For more information, please contact Eric Byrne at 806-584-8045 or by email.  If you know of a potential Cub Scout, Boy Scout, or adult leader that is on the fence, please let me know; it’s never too late to welcome another scout to our family.

Spook-O-Ree 2011

Last weekend, October 29th was the annual Spook-O-Ree at Camp MK Brown. We had an awesome turnout and it appears that everyone had a great time. There were several cool touch-a-trucks, and lots of stations for the cubs to visit that kept them going all afternoon. CampDon had two weekends of Spook-O-Ree and I heard it was a good turnout as well. I am hoping everyone in our district will visit next year’s event because there are new ideas and thing on the table that will make it even better.  I was happy to see everyone have a good time and look forward to next year. If you, or any of your boys have ideas of what we can do to make Camp MK Brown Spook-O-Ree even better next years, Call or email at the above locations.

Christmas Parade

OK Adobe Walls! I have talked to a lot of people at many different units in our district about building the unity in Adobe Walls. We are going to have our first district unity event on December 3rd inPampa. The Pampa Christmas parade is that day and we are going to come together and honor the Eagle Scouts of Adobe Walls.

The plan is to have Cub and Boy Scouts walking in front of a float carrying Eagle Scouts past and present (no matter what their age is) I would like for each unit to bring as many boys that day in their uniforms and with their unit flags. I will send out an email to all the unit leaders with more details as we get them together.

Anyone that knows an Eagle Scout, please let your unit leader know so we can invite them that afternoon to be honored by our boys and leaders. If you have a way to contribute or have an idea to make this opportunity even better, please contact me.

I would like to show the community that Scouting is strong and united in our district. If this works out, we will take it on the road to parades in other town in Adobe Walls, so please…..lets show everyone how proud we are of our boys and lets build on the unity within our district.
