Re-charter and unit retention:

It’s the end of January and we are still chasing down re-charters.  PLEASE contact me if you are having issues and I will personally come out to help.  I’d like to have all re-charters in by the end of February so please review where you are in the process and let me know ASAP.  This is very import to get done because the existence of your unit depends on the re-charter.  Please contact me if you are having issues or questions about the process.

Unit retention is vital to the health and existence of your individual scouting unit.  Planning activities to keep the boys fired up will help this.  Contact me for resources and attendance issues. I will assist you with providing an exciting program that will keep the boys wanting to come back for more.

Camp Card 2014!

We are about ready to kick off the 2014 camp card and I am super excited about this year’s opportunities.  We have many new venders on the card and a few returning for another year of deals.  Jump N Jive in Pampa, Cinema 4 and Subway to name a few, but there are several other great deals also.  For the second year in a row Borger will have a separate card from the rest of the district.  Every unit will have the opportunity to sell the Pampa, Borger and/or Amarillo cards to increase the number of cards sold.  PLEASE contact me ASAP to submit your unit’s commitments…..$5.00 a card / $2.50 commission for each card sold.  This year the council decided to up the competition and will be handing out a PlayStation 4 to the Scout that sells the most cards PER DISTRICT!  This is hands down a great card and should be an easy sell for the boys.

Family FOS

I still need to schedule your unit’s Court of Honor or Blue & Gold.  If you haven’t scheduled one yet, please email me with the date, time, and location.  Family FOS is a very important part of our council’s operation…it helps to serve the Adobe Walls district as well.  Our district goal this year is $8200.00.  PLEASE help me by making sure I know when your next family activity is so we can give our family FOS presentation.
