Color Guard Needed
The Binghamton Devils still have dates open for your Pack to perform the Color Guard. What this entails is your Pack holding our nation's colors on the ice in front of thousands of fans as the national anthem takes place.

The Scouts for the game receive a discounted ticket and so do family and friends as well. To sign up today call Eric Chamberland at 607-722-7367.  
Blair Atholl Jamborette
Currently Full, but accepting names for Wait List

The Baden-Powell Council will be sending a contingent of two patrols of Scouts (or Sea Scouts or Venturers) to Scotland once again next summer. If you know any Scouts who will be 14-17 years old as of July 16, 2018 who would be interested in joining the contingent (or if you fit that profile), check out our website http://www.BPBlairAtholl.org/ and see what it's all about! We’ll be spending a week touring around Scotland, then ten days at the Blair Atholl Scottish International Patrol Jamborette on the grounds of Blair Castle. Finally, our Scouts will go home with their Scottish counterparts for four days of home hospitality. The application form for B-P Council Scouts to join our 2018 contingent has been posted to the BPBlairAtholl website. If you, or a Scout you know, are interested in being a member of the contingent, download a copy of the form from http://www.bpblairatholl.org/2018/default.htm and e-mail it to Scotland@TCScouts.org As of May 11th we've got eight of our twelve Scouts recruited. That's not bad, this far in advance, and perhaps we'll have the full contingent by midsummer. Get in an application in ASAP to be sure of a spot!
