Our advancement chair, Mr. Dan Cook, recently sent out an email in an attempt to get the word out about the proper procedures to follow for advancement, Eagle Projects, merit badge counseling and more. Here is a brief summary:
Anyone needing to arrange an Eagle Scout Board of Review should contact Dan Cook directly (firstname.lastname@example.org or (540) 544-7100
Anyone would like to be a merit badge counselor, should send the completed application, certificate of Youth Protection, and Adult Leader application to Dan Cook. Visit the link below for the most current list of approved counselors. MB Counselor list
Dan has created an online presence for topics dealing with advancement within our district, in the hopes of fostering more discussion and to have a more efficient way to communicate to interested parties. There are a few people that are currently subscribed. If you would like to be a part of this group, please send Dan Cook your email address.
Dan Cook has an Eagle Advancement educational presentation that he would be happy to present to your troop. It will answer many question that scouts and their parents have. If you are interested - send Dan a note. He made several presentations and it has been well received.
We are fortunate to have such a willing and enthusiastic advancement chair. Please contact him and he will be glad to assist you in your advancement efforts. Thanks Dan!
Our Advancement Chair has done a great job of keeping up with current merit badge counselors. A link to all counselors that we have on file is here: MB Counselor list
and on the Badge-O-Ree 2012 page.
This list is not perfect (but it's pretty close!). Please contact Dan Cook
to update, add to, or correct the list. Also let Dan know if you would like to be removed from the list. Please remember that it is up to each counselor, and those who choose to use the counselor, to ensure that his/her Youth Protection Training is up to date. Dan Cook
As you can see, we are blessed with many knowledgeable, caring, and WILLING volunteers in our District. Thanks to all of the adults who give so freely of their time each week at Scout meetings and for the "special" effort that you give for events like those mentioned above. You are the best!
IF you are planning to do any event that involves any climbing or rappelling you must have TRAINED staff present. Please contact Tim Wallace if you would like to be trained.
The next District meeting is on January 17, 2013 at 7:00 p.m. at the First Christian Church in Bluefield, WV. We meet every third Thursday of the month so come out and let your voice be heard! We need to have better representation from CUB SCOUT leaders at these meetings. There are lots more events in the District. Check out the CALENDAR
link above so see the latest. You don't want to miss this meeting!
