Scout Shop News
 
The Scout Shop would like to welcome you, the volunteers, back to scouting for another exciting year.  Starting September 11 the Scout Shop will be open Saturdays from 8:00 a.m. - 12: p.m.
 
Please keep in mind that we will be closed September 6 in observance of Labor Day.  To help us serve you better please remember to bring tour permits no later than three days prior to your outing.  Also let us know three weeks before your big events if you will need some special supplies from us.
 
The August 1 deadline has passed and those of you without a unit charge account form on file with the Scout Shop need to get one filed as soon as possible.  This is to help us protect your accounts and serve you better.  Until this form is filed no one will be allowed to use your account.
 
Please note that the offical Tiger uniform is now the Cub Scout blue shirt with the orange neckerchief.  I'm sure your Tiger Dens will now look better and more impressive than ever.
 
We look forward to another exciting year of serving you in Scouting.  If you have any questions, comments, or suggestions do not hesitate to call us at 334-262-2697 or 800-977-2688.
 
 
To Be Physically Fit is to Be Risk Ready
 
Two important challenges for us in Scouting are physical fitness and good health.  Every adult leader should set the example and contribute directly to the health and fitness of today's Scouts by completing requirements for the BSA Physical Fitness Award.
 
The Award's objectives developed by the National Council and the national BSA Health and Safety Committee, are as follows:
  • Encourage youth fitness in the BSA by providing positive role models and by enhancing youth awareness and understanding of fitness parameters, health risks, and personal circumstances.
  • Encourage physical fitness among Scouters by enhancing their awareness and understanding of fitness parameters, health risks and personal circunstances.
  • Reduce the rated of stress and fitness related incidents throughout Scouting.

For more information go to www.scouting.org/pubs/19-327 or call 972-580-2448 for a copy of the To Be Physically Fit, BSA brochure (Bin No. 19-327) and Leaders Fitness Card (Bin No. 19-326).

 

Be Risk Ready with Safe Swim Defense and Safety Afolat

It's true that the number of serious injuries and fatalities in water-related activities is a small relative to the number of Scouting activities every year, but Scouting loses lives and dollars from aquatics injuries and fatalities - second only to those lost in vehicle accidents.

To reduce aquatics accidents, we must know an follow Safe Swim Defense and Safety Afloat.

Chapter 2 of the Guide to Safe Scouting is dedicated to aquatics safety.  Give yourself a refresher course before going on your next water activity.  The life you save or the injury you prevent may be your Scout's.  Safe Swim Defense and Safety Afloat saves lives!

 
Challenging Outdoor Personal Experience
 
The C.O.P.E. course is a one day program that involves a series of challenging outdoor activities.  There are initiative games, a high and low ropes course, a rappelling tower and climbing wall.  The one day program includes several of these activities and lunch.  Some of the events involve a group effort, while others test individual skills and agility.  Participants balance, swing, jump, and think through solutions to a variety of challenges.  Come test your groups skills and see if they live up to what you thought they may be.
 
The cost for a member is $35.00 per participant or a minimum of $300.00, which ever is greater.  For a non-member the cost is $45.00 per participant or a minimum of $400.00, which ever is greater.  Other packages and full C.O.P.E. programs are available.  To make your group reservation or receive more information contact Denise Miller at 334-262-2697 or 1-800-977-2688.
