Paracord Bracelet Instructions

It was a bold experiment, and we had some success!  I have posted the instructions in the Files area of the website, which you can get to by clicking Files under the Menu section on the left, or just go straight there.  The file also has a link to a video making a similar bracelet, so that might be helpful.

Friends Of Scouting

Posted on Apr 20 2013 - 11:36pm

Q:  Why donate to Scouts if you've already paid dues?

A:  The local council needs money to pay for the things that volunteers can't do or won't do.

- Keep our council office operating & our scout camps "Best in the U.S." . 

The 2013 Friends Of Scouting goal is unchanged from 2012.  How can you help?   Click here.

T230's New Compass Course

Posted on Mar 21 2013 - 9:44pm

ASM's Boutwell and Schmitt have created a new compass course at Foothills Park.  Simply print out the Word document, gather your needed equipment, and go to Foothills Park any time to complete this course on your own.  Turn in your completed course to ASM Schmitt for credit.  This fulfills requirement #2 for the rank of First Class.  But it's also fun!
