The Trainer’s EDGE replaces the Trainer Development Conference (BSA 500) as the required train?the?trainer course for Wood Badge and NYLT staffs. The purpose of the Trainer’s EDGE course is to provide and help develop the platform skills of a trainer. It is meant to supplement the practice offered through Wood Badge and NYLT staff development, with a focus on the participant, while raising the level of skill a trainer brings to the staff experience. Only practice can polish these skills, but this course is intended to “train the trainer” on behaviors and resources while offering hands?on experience in methods and media.
Even if you’re not on Wood Badge or NYLT staff, you are invited to take part in Trainer’s EDGE on January 18th, 2014. It is appropriate for Roundtable Commissioners, Camp Staff, Council Training Volunteers and Unit Trainers as well. Both youth and adults are welcome to attend.
Early bird signups end January 10th – the course is just $10, and includes a pizza lunch! (What a DEAL!) This is a GREAT opportunity, so don’t miss it!
Keeping everyone up to date is hard.
Three Harbors Council is trying something new – asking for units to help update the council’s records with current email addresses of leaders and interested parties in your unit. These lists will ONLY be used to send out e-Newsletters for all Scouts, and will not be shared with other groups or organizations.

Are the adults in your Pack “trained” for their positions? Leaders must receive training for Tiger, Cub Scout, Webelos, Committee and Cubmaster positions, meaning they may have to take a refresher course every other year or so.

No, that’s not the Order of the Arrow. It’s the symbol of the 32nd Infantry Division – the Red Arrow.
With its roots in the Iron Brigade dating back to the American Civil War, the 32nd was an incredibly tenacious ground combat unit, succeeding where others would fail.
And it’s apropos that Red Arrow Park in Milwaukee is named after these great Wisconsin soldiers! Today, a red granite sculpture depicting the insignia of this division stands in the park. And Red Arrow Park is also home to Slice of Ice, a 128 by 95 refrigerated outdoor skating rink.
