Space Jamboree/ MB make-up and important dates

I am posting this on Saturday because I am leaving on Sunday for Eagle Trail Camp at S-F on Sunday.

August 2nd – Space Jamboree. We are leaving at 10 am from the parking lot across from the Admin Building – the O’Reilly / License Office parking lot. Be there about 9:45 am. We are asking that the boys only pack an overnight bag because we are not taking the trailer. Everything needs to fit in the back of my mini-van (without seats).

As a reminder, Eagle Scout Association Merit Badge Make Up day is August 3 at Beaumont. Scouts must come to the event with their partial cards from Summer Camp. If your Scout needs their partial card, please contact me and I will put them in my mailbox the week of July 28th. I can’t email them because they are not individual cards. This is only for partials, not new merit badges.

Below are important dates – August to December. (Regular meetings are not listed.) I have listened to what the Scouts want to do and those activities will be scheduled in January – May. I will be talking more to the Scouts at Space Jam to see what type of camping trips they want to go on.
