Longhorn Council Fireside Chat Invitation

Dear Scouter:
You are invited to attend a fireside chat with the Longhorn Council leadership/Key 3.  We have scheduled four locations and dates within the Council, so hopefully one will be convenient for you.  Each event will begin at 7:00 PM.
Monday, August 17 – Baylor University Sciences Building, 101 Bagby Avenue, Waco.  We will be meeting in a classroom on the first floor.
Monday, August 24 – St. Joseph's Catholic Community Parrish Hall, 1927 SW Green Oaks Blvd, Arlington. 
Tuesday, August 25 – Arborlawn Church, Worship Center, 5001 Briarhaven Road, Fort Worth.
Thursday, August 27 – Faith Lutheran Church, 6000 Morriss Road, Flower Mound.
What will be on the agenda?
·        On July 27th, the National BSA Executive Board voted to adopt a new adult membership policy.  We will have the latest information.
·        A state of the Longhorn Council report, including updates on the improvement projects being conducted in our camping and activities facilities.
·        A look ahead at the capital improvements still needing to be addressed; an opportunity for you to give us your input.
·        Q and A with Council leaders.
We sincerely hope that you or at least one representative from your Scout unit can be present.  We encourage anyone that would like to know the latest on the BSA's new membership policy as well as learn more about how the Longhorn Council is driving the mission statement of Scouting through membership growth, camping opportunities and more to attend.
Thank you for your involvement in Scouting and we look forward to visiting with you.

Celebrate International Geocaching Day on August 15

Facebook   YouTube   Twitter   Blog
Join the Worldwide Celebration
International Geocaching Day 2015!
One of the biggest holidays of the year for geocachers is right around the corner. August 15 is International Geocaching Day. It's the perfect day to get outside, find a few (dozen) geocaches and introduce someone new to the game.
It also happens to be the same day as Geocaching Block Party in Seattle. If you can make it to the big party, we'd love to see you. If not, don't fret! Celebrate in any way you can and post your photos to Instagram with the hashtag #Geocaching15.
Need a celebration idea? How about finding the most favorited geocache near you?

6 Souvenirs. 5 Geocaching HQ'ers. 300 Miles. 24 Hours.
Geocaching Road Trip '15
Unless you've been living in an unfound geocache, you've probably heard about the Geocaching Road Trip '15. Just in case: we've challenged the geocaching community to earn 6 new souvenirs by finding 5 different types of geocaches before September 2.
But we're not ones for issuing a challenge and not completing it ourselves. So not only will a group of folks from Geocaching HQ find all five types of geocaches that can earn the new souvenirs—they're going to do it all in 24 hours on one epic road trip. You can keep up with their journey live on August 6 by following @GoGeocaching on Twitter or on the Geocaching Blog.

Meet the 24-hour road trip crew.
