Join us for Eagle Coach Training on Nov 6th. An Eagle Coach helps keep our Life to Eagle candidates on track by acting as a local resource to help answer questions for both the Scout and his parents, and also to provide encouragement. The Coach advises and counsels the candidate through the process, including execution.

NOTE: this post was EDITED. It incorrectly listed November 16th, as original council emails had indicated. The actual event is November 6th as the bullet points said.

Did you catch this video from Dude Perfect, who visited the Summit Bechtel Reserve recently? You won’t believe the extreme trick shots these guys do!
From Dude Perfect’s show notes:
We had an absolute blast making this video! Built on 10,000 acres in beautiful mountainous West Virginia, the Summit might literally be the coolest place ever. Click here for a special behind the scenes look at how this video shoot went down!! http://bit.ly/SummitBTSvideo
Re-Charter is not until January for Fox River – in fact you cannot access the online re-charter until December 1st. However, you can still make your plan and make sure your house is in order so that this process is smooth and painless.
In light of our motto “Be Prepared”! Please visit the newly reconfigured, retooled, and re-imagined RECHARTER page on the Council website.
This webpage has contact information, a link to the online portal, and training resources for you to peruse, as well as some helpful hints identified as the most confusing or unknown stumbling blocks from last year. The PowerPoint document can serve as a training tool for Commissioners or a must read for those completing the re-charter for their Units. But wait there’s more! There is also an outline to be used as a guide to give trainings or a quick reference when you are in the heat of paperwork.
Re-charter Packets will be available at November’s Roundtable and then through the Racine office. If you would like to pick up at the Milwaukee office let Margaret know and she will bring those units re-charters to the Milwaukee office after Roundtable.
Thank you for all that you do and will do for Scouting and please let us know how we can help you!
Every child loves a train. Even when those children are all grown up!
Trainfest returns to State Fair Park Saturday November 9th and Sunday November 10th in the Wisconsin Exposition Center. You still have plenty of time to get greatly discounted tickets, but here’s a tip: Uniformed Scout Leaders and Troops receive FREE admission at the door. (But only if you’re in your official Scout uniform!)
It’s over 4 football fields full of rail-riding fun including demos, seminars, trains for sale and massive layouts in all sizes. There are train races, raffles, and even a circus train for the little tykes to ride on. It’s seriously one of the best shows of its kind anywhere in the country – and it’s right here near home.
Check out the links, and come join in the fun! Hope to see lots of Scouts in uniform!
