The Capitol District Blast

Roundtables

Roundtable is Thursday Dec 14, 7:30pm at Riva Trace Baptist Church.

The January Roundtable is January 11, which is the Thursday before Martin Luther King weekend.   Please try to attend at least one of these two meetings.

Girl Scouts Camp Woodlands Clean Up
Please come join Girl Scouts, Boy Scouts, Row Team members and the community at large for a Clean-Up Day at Camp Woodlands off of Riva Road in Annapolis on Sunday December 17th from 9am - 5pm.  Our beloved camp is in desperate need of some TLC.  We will be doing building cleaning, grounds maintenance, and light repairs. Come for the day or for as long as you can.  Please sign-up so that we can make sure we are ready to put you to work.

Please consider bringing with you, buckets, cleaning solutions, leaf blowers, log splitting equipment, trash bags, mops, brooms, dust pans, rags, ladders, shovels, rakes, newspaper, hammers, extension cords, shop vacs, latex gloves, etc.  See small repair and larger maintenance items for items to bring (this is on the SignUpGenius link below).  Some jobs will be weather dependent.  There is so much to do!!

Please note: This is not a drop-off activity, if bringing youth a responsible adult must stay.

Date: 12/17/2017 (Sun.)

Time: 9:00am - 5:00pm EST Location: Camp Woodlands, Riva Road www.SignUpGenius.com/go/30E0C4AAFAF2BA46-december       

American Legion Eagle Scout Scholarship

The qualifications are that the Eagle must be the relative of a

Legionnaire or be registered to a Troop, Crew or Team sponsored by an American Legion Post. He (for the time being) must be older than 15 years old and if still in high school can be over 18 years old if their birthdate is in the nomination year. He must reside in the state to which he applies although the Legionnaire may not. He must have received the appropriate religious award. Also there are letters of recommendation he would have to get, but all that is spelled out in the application.

https://www.legion.org/scholarships/eaglescout

 

The reward is if chosen there is a pot of $25,000.00 in scholarships available. The state organization provides a plaque and (I think)

$1,500.00 scholarship.

 

You can contact John McLaughlin jrmac47@comcast.net if you have any questions.

The Capitol District Merit Badge Day

When: Saturday, January 27 at Annapolis HS

Welcome to the Capitol District Merit Badge Day! Scouts may take up to 2 merit badges - one in the morning session and one in the afternoon session. Check in begins at 8:45am. There will be a morning class (9am -12pm) and an afternoon class (1-4pm). In order to complete the merit badges the scouts will need to complete the prerequisites prior to attending the Merit Badge Classes.    Read the detail and sign up at the link below. http://www.signupgenius.com/go/60b0e49afae22ab9-2018

Combined Committee Training 

Several years ago, TJ Furlong had a really good idea.  She pointed out that a number of sponsors had the same, single committee for both a Pack and Troop, or for a Troop and Crew.   Additionally, Pack

Committee members would eventually wind up in Troop Committees as their children bridged.  Her idea was to teach a single course that qualified the student to serve on ANY committee.

We will teach the combined Committee training at the District Merit Badge Day.  The course will take about 5-6 hours, depending on questions asked.  We will teach Troop Committee as the base, then Venturing and Pack Committee by differences from the Troop.  Please email Mark Mulligan at crew396@aol.com to sign up.  Students staying the entire time will get credit for the three separate BSA trainings.

Remember, all these courses are also available as on line training at my.scouting.org
