OA Members – Section Conclave is just around the corner!

Just a quick note to remind you about Section Conclave coming up the weekend of July 15-17, at the University of the Incarnate Word in San Antonio. Called the Lone Star Fellowship, this gathering of the 9 OA Lodges in our area is a lot of fun. Activities include entertaining shows Friday and Saturday night, ice cream social Friday night, Classes in the morning to add to your skills as a scout, competitive and other fun activities Saturday afternoon, and Lodgapalooza Saturday night. The food is always good, and air conditioned dorm rooms are a nice change of pace.

Our Lodge (Wihinipa Hinsa) is sharing the responsibility of Service Corps with another lodge — we need your help!

Check out www.sr2-3s.org to learn more. Early Bird discount ends soon.

Hope to see you among those registered — even better, hope to see you there!

BSA Advancement Requirements Effective 1/1/2017

As a mid-year reminder to all scouts, scouters and parents… BSA advancement changes go into effect for all on 1/1/2017…

The biggest areas of impact are from Scout to First Class.

To avoid any year-end confusion all scouts should focus on learning/demonstrating and getting at least one item signed-off each week.

Here are the transition basics straight from BSA:

For 2016:

  • Boys joining on or after Jan. 1, 2016 MUST use the new requirements.
  • Boys who have joined prior to Jan. 1, 2016:
    • Who are working on the Scout badge MAY continue to work on the existing requirements, but MUST convert to the new requirements upon completion of the Scout badge.
    • Who are working on Tenderfoot through First Class MAY continue to work on the existing requirements, but MUST convert to the new requirements upon attaining First Class.
    • Who have completed First Class MAY complete the rank they are currently working on in the existing requirements, but then MUST convert to the new requirements for subsequent ranks.For 2017: All Scouts MUST use the new requirements regardless of rank.

For your reference, New requirements can be found at the following URL:

http://blog.scoutingmagazine.org/2016/01/06/new-boy-scout-requirements-for-2016-now-in-effect/

You do not need to buy a new book – print the inserts & continue to use your current book..,
