Friends of Scouting

 
Please do your part in helping support the progams and camps that our youth take part in!

Starting October 1st online rechartering will be open.  Your recharter packet will be given to you at September's Roundtable Meeting.  Please contact your District Executive Matthew Graham, or District Commissioner Vern Wolfley if you did not pick up your packet at roundtable.  In September, please complete your Membership Inventory and submit an MLS roster (if you are LDS) to make rechartering much easier.

You can submit your recharters as early as October 2nd, at Office Hours at Barnes and Nobles on Thursdays (see below), council, or either of the three turn in nights below:

Please be aware that about half of recharters are initially denied submission for being incomplete, missing adult apps/disclosures/youth protection trainings, or missing signatures.  Please review everything, follow directions, and submit your charter as early as possible.

Office Hours with the District Executive
Our District Executive, Matthew Graham, will be at Barnes and Noble in Goodyear almost every Thursday from 3:00pm to 6:00pm.  He will be in the cafe area to the right of the entrance.  He also is at the Council office most days at various hours.
 
If you have any questions about training, rechartering, frundraising or programming ideas for your unit or our district, or would just like to chat, be sure to come down and visit with Matthew! Please call his cell beforehand at 928-246-9376 to make sure he is hosting office hours that day, as he is sometimes caught up with unit visits, out in the field, or attending other meetings!
Wood Badge is for every Scout leader!  Wood Badge was developed for Scout leaders, as well as district and council leaders.  Its focus is on leadership not outdoor skills.

Our local chapter of Order of the Arrow (OA) wants you to get involved. If your troop or team needs to have elections, please contact Tom Crosser, tecrosserbsausnr@aol.com, 623-849-9526.
 
If you have questions about elections, please review the guidelines here. LDS scouts are needed in OA too. See letter from LDS BSA Relations Director, David Pack.
