2014 Camp Cards

Leaders and Volunteers,
The 2014 Camp Card Campaign is getting ready.  This is the first of several communications to alert you.  The Kroger dates will run the weekends from March 13-15 thru the April 12th weekend.  The following weekend is Easter this year.  Our sales campaign is March 8th through April 27th with money and card turn in set for May 2nd.  Those dates are pretty fixed.  The distribution of cards and return of cards will be coordinated through the districts and will be on varying dates.
The Kroger sites will be registered through a website again.  It will open January 6th for reserving sites and dates.  We did not fill all the available slots last year.

North—Kroger, Dick's Sporting Goods, Texas Rangers, Bass Pro, Medieva…

Wow! The District has had a flood of Eagle Boards-of-Review recently. Some really remarkable young men have achieved their goal and reached the Eagle rank.While there may not be any short-cuts on the trail to Eagle, at the next Scout Roundtable you may receive a road-map (or should I say 'the coordinates'?)!
