Some of you may have received this message earlier.  I am trying to get the word out to everyone so please disregard if you received this message earlier.  If you would please pass the word to others who may not be on this list.  I am sending this message to my NRA class also, some of you may want to take this training. 
Attached is the Campmaster Training Application in pdf format.  The date has now been set so please make plans to attend if you are interested and pass the word to others who may not have received this message.  As you will see on the application, we will meet at Worth Ranch Roeser Hall at 8:00 am on Saturday November 23 and will complete the training around 5:00 pm.  There will be no fee, we will provide you with lunch.

What:    Charter Renewal Training When:  October 27, 2013 at 7pm Where: The LDS Stake Center – 3809 Curt Drive Arlington, TX We will be conducting our 2013 training on the Charter Renewal process. The training will take about 1 hour. This is especially important for those who not used the internet re-charter site in the past and a good review for those who have done many times before. For those units that have not yet picked up their packets, they can pick them up that night. The online systems opens up on 1 November 2013. The completed re-charter is due 15 December 2013 along with the fees and the 2013 JTE forms. We will have 2 turn-in dates, 24 November 2013 at the Arlington LDS Stake Center and on 10 December 2013 at the Scout Roundtable. Thank you everyone!

November NRA Classes

Hi All,
In case you haven't seen the attached applications on the Council web site they are for a November Rifle/Shotgun/RSO class that will be at Worth Ranch in November I know several of you ask me to notify you when the next class was scheduled. Also if you have anyone who my want to just attend a RSO class we are offering that as well. Beginning in January the 2 deep trained leadership to open a council range will be implemented. We have limited opening for the Rifle/Shotgun /RSO class still available , but several for the RSO class. So if you have fellow scouter who want and need the training help me help you and pass along the information and the applications.

Shoot Safely,

Dennis
