There is a good deal system revisions and data revisions taking place over the next few weeks.  You may notice some anomalies.  You will also see some new dens as well as a new Scout family on the roster.  The "Sample" Family has a child in every den, both a girl and a boy!  No, this is not some strange family that joined our Pack, It is a fictitious family of Scouts and Parents set up in order for the leaders to work on some new features in the software we use.

We will be adding Girl dens to the Pack next year.  With the official inclusion of girls into the Cub Scout Program there will be additional leadership requirements.  We need more leaders.  We Must have 2 den leaders for any grade level in which we have girls.  Meaning if we have both boys and girls in the Pack as Tigers (1st Graders) we need TWO registered and fully trained tiger den leaders and two registered and fully trained assistant Tiger den leaders.  If we have both boys and girls in the Wolf level (2nd Grade) we need TWO registered and fully trained Wolf den leaders and two registered and fully trained assistant Wolf den leaders.  Etc...

Training, Training, Training!

There are all sorts of changes coming this year - Part of it will be BSA National (and Our Council) enforcing the training requirements for all leaders.  Meaning leaders who are not position trained will be dropped from the leadership roster.  We have never had a problem in the past having our leaders trained so it should not be an issue in the future BUT we need everyone to complete their training.

ON-Line Application - OFF LINE

Posted on Jun 11 2018 - 7:44am

We have been testing and attempting to switch to the BSA (national) on-line application system.  After more than a year of testing and modifying, our council has discontinued/suspended the on-line registration system until further notice.  We need New Leaders and New Scouts to use the paper applications.
