PARENT N PAL WEEKEND kicks off at 6pm tonight! If you’re a late-comer check-in will be at 8am on Saturday morning. Be prepared with weather appropriate gear and an extra pair of shoes for your little ones!

Our NEW SCOUT EXECUTIVE, Jeff Doty, starts on Monday, September 16th; if you’re in the area, pop in and say hello. The scout shop will have cupcakes to celebrate the occasion.

The EXECUTIVE BOARD will meet on Thursday, September 19, at 7pm at Camp Mountaineer. Look for an agenda to arrive via email later this week.

OA MAKEUP ORDEAL WEEKEND will be Friday, September 20 at 6pm through Sunday, September 22 at noon. Remember, if you were tapped out at summer camp and do not complete your ordeal this weekend, you will need to be voted upon, tapped out, and go through the process again. Candidates should bring their arrow and loin cloth as well as their camping gear for the weekend. All participants will need a Class A Uniform for Saturday evening. Cost for candidates is $45, Arrowmen $15. Prices for candidates include handbook, sash, and program materials for the weekend. Anyone who has been an Ordeal member for 10 months or more may also take their Brotherhood this weekend. Contact the Lodge Chief to set that up.

The POPCORN SALE is in full swing. If you haven’t gotten your order forms/family guides, they are available in the office and for download on our website www.macbsa.org. We also have some extra product available for those who missed the deadline on ordering their Show N Sell inventory. If you are interested in doing a Show N Sell, please contact council popcorn chairperson Frances Hollinger at 304-292-7638 to get that set up. Remember, doing a Show N Sell is an opportunity for a 1% increase in your commission at the end of the sale so don’t miss out on this chance to earn more money for your programs! Take Orders are due by October 31 and popcorn pickup is November 14.

SUPER SATURDAY
will take place on Saturday, September 28 from 10am – 2pm at the scout office. We will offer training courses on Youth Protection and Cub Scout Den Leader that day. If you cant find a sitter for your kids so you can take this training, its NO PROBLEM! We will have activities available and some den chiefs on hand to help corral the little ones. For anyone wanting to earn some money toward their popcorn incentives you can sign up to work a one-hour time slot in the scout office parking lot. Slots available are 10-11am, 11-noon, noon-1pm, and 1-2pm.

CUB SCOUT UNIFORM ONE DAY SALE will take place on Super Saturday (Sept 28). If you buy a complete uniform (shirt, neckerchief, slide, and hat) you will receive a FREE Council Shoulder Patch! This is a $5 savings! Mention this advertisement for the discount!

FRIDAY HOURS will begin again for the fall. Effective September 20th, we will be open half days on Friday from 10am -- 2pm. This will be a seasonal change but hope that these few hours will help our customers have an additional opportunity each week to get the supplies they need. For questions, contact the office manager and she can help you out!
