Roundtables

It is extremely vital to the success of your unit that you have representation at the monthly District Roundtables. It is at these meetings that you will get important materials and information that will allow for your program to flourish!!! We have a blast at our Roundtables, and it always makes me feel like I am going to my monthly “family reunion.” I hope to see each of you there!!! Please don’t forget that we have Pack 165 & Troop 132 hosting the Chimney Rock District Roundtable every 1st Thursday of each.

Publicity

Another great month has passed with super articles in the paper!!! I hope everyone in the District will keep up the great work in getting Scouting out to the public. If you have any pictures or stories you would like to get in the paper, please contact the local paper or get in touch with me and I would love to help you out!! If you do get articles in the paper, please try to retain a copy to give Travis Walker so that I may take a copy of it to the Piedmont Council Scout Office to show how Scouting is getting out into the community within our District.

2017 Family Friends of Scouting

If we have not held a 2017 Family Friends of Scouting campaign at your Pack/Troop/Crew, please contact Travis Walker (828-447-2047) so that we may get you on our schedule this year. In order for us to continue to grow the Scouting movement, we must ensure its financial security by giving as many Scouting supporters as possible the opportunity to be a part of helping this great program continue for years to come. We have already begun with great success in the District this year with the groups we have spoken to, and look forward to having you all be a part of this campaign this year.

2017 Camp Card Sales

It is time again for our annual Camp Card sales for 2017. Terry Henderson and I have been able to put together a fantastic card that can save any Scouting supporter hundreds of dollars for 2017. This $10 Camp Card is a fantastic way for your Scouting unit to earn up to 50% commission for every card sold!!! Last year, Troop 129 sold over $10,000 in Camp Cards and was able to earn over $5,000 in commission for their efforts. There is NO BETTER fundraiser for your Pack, Troop, Crew, or Post to earn you money to help with your Scouting year than these cards!! Good luck selling, and these new cards will be available to distribute to you at our upcoming February Roundtable. Let’s make 2017 a record year for Camp Card sales in the Chimney Rock District!!!
