District Fishing Derby

**See District Website for Flyer & Information—Link Below**

The Golden Eagle District will be holding its annual Fishing Derby or “Fish n Fun” event on Saturday June 2nd 2012 at Southeast Park in Canyon with registration beginning at 8:30am and “Hooks In” at 9am. We will have Mr. Charlie Monger from the Texas Parks & Wildlife giving Scouts official measurements and will have several trophies up for grabs including; 1st Fish, Biggest Fish, Smallest Fish, Ugliest Fish, and Most Fish. First 100 also receive an exclusive commemorative event patch. Hot Dog Lunch provided courtesy of Canyon’s own Troop 4. Please register and pay your Scout by Wednesday May 30th by completing the registration form located on the bottom of the event flyer. Link to flyer provided below and on the Golden Eagle District Webpage. Link also provided.

            We are hopeful for a great turn out this year as the weather has been providing much welcomed rain and the pond in the park has recently been stocked so fishing will be good! Register early to secure your commemorative patch!

 Camp Card

Hopefully everyone had a very successful Camp Card sale this year. The Golden Eagle District increased its participation in Camp Card sales from 17 participating units in 2011 to 23 for this year’s 2012 sale. We are hoping this initiative proves effective and provides value and most importantly, helps our Scouts get to experience the life changing fun that Summer Camp provides!

District Committee – WE NEED YOUR HELP!!

The Golden Eagle District is growing but we still need your help! We are now reviewing candidates to fill vacant district committee positions. We are looking for individuals to fill our Finance and Program positions. See the position descriptions and responsibilities links on the Golden Eagle District Website for more details. If you would like to be considered or have a recommendation please contact the Golden Eagle District Chairman, Dean Sather or the G.E District Executive, Brian Lamirande at the contact information listed on the Golden Eagle District Webpage. We welcome ALL suggestions and recommendations!
