2015 Klondike Derby

Posted on Nov 15 2014 - 5:28pm

     It's time to start preparing to head to the Great White North again.  The 15th annual Button Gwinnett District Klondike Derby is just around the corner.
     Once again, it will be held on the grounds of the AAC's Woodruff Scout Reservation and feature a variety of Scout skills and fun activities that take place in six Klondike "towns". The dates are February 6 - 8, 2015.
     This year we are planning an additional event for the weekend: On Saturday night there will be the opportunity for all attendees to gather for fellowship and a spaghetti dinner in the dining hall. While coming to the dinner will be optional, we hope to see most all of the campers choose this for their Saturday night meal option.  Pricing for this year's campout will be as follows: $17 per person with the dinner option OR $12 per person without the dinner.
     The weekend will conclude with the annual sled race (weather permitting) and the award ceremony.
     Unit leaders: Please plan on attending the December roundtable to provide your attendance estimates and to receive specific information about when and where to submit your final attendance figure and payment. Due to the addition of the Saturday night meal option, we will need to collect solid numbers and payment early in January.
     We want to thank all that have participated and attended past Klondikes and hope to see as many of you as possible in early February.
     Attached to this article you will find the 2015 Klondike Derby packet. This packet can also be found in the "Files" section in the "Camping" file.

Catholic Boy Scouts religious emblem Ad Altare Dei

Ad Altare Dei Religious Emblem for Catholic Boy Scouts

 

Kevin Dye and John Giobetti, ASM’s for Troop 648 and Catholic certified religious emblem coordinators, are facilitating a district wide religious emblem program for Catholic boy scouts.  The program is the third of four Catholic national religious emblems and is called Ad Altare Dei.  This program benefits Catholic boy scouts that have completed 6th grade, have completed at least six months in a BSA troop, and are sufficiently mature to undertake the program, which provides an intense immersion in the sacramental life.  This program will begin on Sunday afternoon, August 24, at 3PM at Mary Our Queen Catholic Church located at 6260 The Corners Parkway Peachtree Corners, GA 30092.  We will conduct the program each Sunday for about an hour.  This will be a challenging program and our goal is for the boys to complete the program in time for the archdiocesan board of review on January 10, 2015 then receive the awards at the Archbishop’s Scout Mass on February 21.
