Adult Leader Roundtable is an excellent opportunity to ensure that YOUR unit is represented and YOUR thoughts, ideas, comments and concerns are heard. This monthly meeting provides a platform for discussion, event planning, training, networking and idea sharing that all will surely benefit from.

We will feature tailored monthly discussion topics and fun-filled activities to keep you & your leaders engaged and excited to return for more! So bring all of your Pack/Troop’s adult leaders out to the Golden Eagle Monthly Roundtable & join in on the fun!

Eagle Scout Project Reviews and Eagle Scout Boards of Reviews- Updated 2/2/12

The next Eagle Service Project Review Board will be held on February 9th at St. Luke Presbyterian Church – Remember, only NEW workbooks will be accepted. If a scout shows up with anything other than the new workbook, his project will NOT be approved.

Location: St. Luke Presbyterian Church, 3001 Bell Street in Amarillo, Texas. (0.36 miles north of the intersection of 34th & Bell Streets) (GPS Coordinates: 35.181414, -101.900849)

Please park on the south side of the church and enter through the south doors. The church is handicap accessible.

Eagle PROJECT Review Boards are held the SECOND Thursday of each month at 6:30pm.

Eagle RANK Review Boards are held the THIRD Thursday of each month at 6:30pm.

—- New Eagle Project Workbook

The new BSA Advancement Guidelines (BSA Publication #33088) state that the NEW Eagle Scout Service Project Workbook must be used. During the Fall of 2011, we had the option of accepting the old or new version of the workbook, but as of January 1, 2012, ONLY the new workbook will be accepted for new Eagle Service Projects. In addition, the Board will no longer accept “homemade” workbooks.

“9.0.1.2 Prepare the Eagle Scout Service Project Workbook
The most current workbook must be used. It can be found at http://www.scouting.org/forms.aspx. The workbook shows the project proposal was approved ahead of time, and then properly accepted by all parties when finished. Ideally, it will be a proud reminder of a significant accomplishment.

Several applications have been seen recently that were completed in pencil. This reflects poorly on the candidate. The “fillable PDF” is the preferred method, but pen and ink is also accepted.

If you have any other questions, please feel free to contact me.  (eaglereeves@gmail.com or liam.mcpherson@live.com).
