HEALTH TIP -Hydration – Drink! Drink!! Drink!!!  Summer has begun, Day Camps, Summer Camps, and great Unit Trips.  We have been inside all winter, and our bodies have not acclimated to the hot, humid weather.

Get outside to start getting your body use to the heat.  Stay in shaded areas as much as possible, and most importantly, drink plenty of water.

JUNIOR TRAIL BOSS PROGRAMCamp Jackson will launch a mountain bike program soon. Before the bikes arrive and the fun starts, Camp Jackson needs a trail system built for this program.

We are looking for 14 dependable people to assume the title of Junior Trail Boss and to assume leadership positions. These individuals will become part of an elite team of trail building specialists. They will oversee the work of trail crews with an adult leader. They will learn the rules of trail building, building switchbacks, building in sloped turns, armoring the trail, etc. The Necessary Skills need for this job is the ability to communicate well, to work well independently or as a group, and the ability to execute a plan. Minimum Requirements for applicants: they must be 16 years old or older (adults are also welcome), must be able to work a minimum of 1 Saturday a month, must be able lead a crew of 5 or more people with an adult leader and attend Camp Jackson Trail School (4 hours of classroom with 5 hours of hands on trail work).  For an application, click here 

Research and Program Innovation- will be sending a survey to about 5,000 Eagle Scouts from across the country under the age of 35 on Tuesday, May 8.   The survey will be used to collect information regarding a few potential membership benefits given by joining the National Eagle Scout Association.  An email invitation will be sent with the subject line “Tell us about some National Eagle Scout Association benefits” and will come from The Boy Scouts of America (paige.paradis@scouting.org<mailto:paige.paradis@scouting.org>).  The survey should take less than 10 minutes to complete.

The National Order of the Arrow Committee announced that two-time Coosa Lodge Chief, two-time Section Chief, and all-around good guy James Tarbox has been selected to receive the Distinguished Service Award at this year’s National Order of the Arrow Conference.

From the National Order of the Arrow website:

The Distinguished Service Award was created in 1940 to honor those who rendered service to the Order beyond the lodge level. The award is presented to those Arrowmen who have rendered distinguished and outstanding service to the Order on a sectional, regional, or national basis. The award is presented every two to three years during the National Order of the Arrow Conference.

The award is a sterling silver arrowhead, bearing an arrow pointing upward and to the wearer’s right, suspended from a white neck-ribbon upon which are embroidered red arrows. A white square knot embroidered upon red cloth is also available. Presentation of the award is limited; nominations are open to both youth and adult.

James joins Dr. James Flatt and Mr. Keith Swedenburg as the only past or current members of Coosa Lodge to be recognized with this honor. He also has the distinction of being the first “home-grown” member of Coosa Lodge to receive the Award.

James was inducted into Coosa Lodge in 2001 at Camp Sequoyah. He then served in nearly every aspect of the Lodge, including ceremonies, shows, the kitchen, and the trading post, before being elected as Coosa Lodge’s only two-term Lodge Chief on his way to back-to-back elections as SR-6S and SR-9 Section Chief.  James’ experience with Coosa Shows and his success as Section Chief opened the door for him to serve as the Shows CVC at the 2009 National Order of the Arrow Conference, where he led dozens of Arrowmen in successfully planning and executing four exciting and inspirational arena shows.

Summer Camp in the GAC — If your unit has not registered for summer camp, there may still be a chance for you to attend one of the Greater Alabama Council camps.  Camp Comer and Camp Sequoyah are both at or near capacity and the few remaining slots are filling up quickly.  If you’re interested in putting your name in one of those final slots, contact the council office.

NOAC — Planning and preparation continue for the 2012 National Order of the Arrow Conference (or “NOAC”), set for July 30th through August 4th Michigan State University in East Lansing, Michigan.  Coosa Lodge is riding chartered buses to the conference and ongoing fundraising efforts have dramatically reduced the cost for our contingent members.  The current cost is $400, which is down from our original estimate of $600 and is actually below the actual cost for participants as set by the National Committee.  If you want to attend NOAC, the time to sign up is NOW!  Click here to for NOAC information and a registration/payment link.

Hello, Birmingham District! I want to personally thank each of you for the hard work that went into this year’s Cub Scout Day Camp – Cubs of the Roundtable. We had some wonderful parents and Walking Den Leaders to work with this year and we all made it home safely each day. The most beautiful news to my ears is that we did not have to make any visits to the hospital. 

I cannot mention names for everyone that made this event such a memorable week for so many Scouts, but I am sure that none of the staff will forget Jason and Chris for all of their hard work on the grill each day. If you have a chance to thank someone, please do not forget Deborah Hudson. She was one of the best Day Camp Directors that I have had the chance to work with and she was the glue that held it all together.

Now that you have all had the chance to calm down and rest your bodies, start getting in touch with each other because it will be time to start planning again in about six months. 


Sincerely,

Brian

• The Boy Scout Iron Chef Cook Off will be on 08/18 at the Helena Market Days. Deadline to enter is July 20th.

This event is intended to be a fun and friendly competition between the two Boy Scout troops in Helena so the rules will not be excessively strict. 


o The Helena Market Days will provide a tent and a table for each team. There will also be access to tab water and power at the concession but you will need to bring power extension cords.

o You may setup as early as 7am.

o No more than 10 boy scouts per team (no exceptions)

o Each troop will need to safely set up their cooking gear by their tent. You may bring additional items used in cooking such as salt, flour, sugar, spices, oil/non-stick spray, etc.

o You may only use vegetables and fruit from vendors at the Helena Market Days. The market will provide each team $20. You may shop at anytime from the market's open at 8am to the end of the competition. You may spend more if you use your own money but quantity doesn't mean quality.

o Sponsor will provide mystery meats that will be given to both troops in equal portions. They will be revealed at 9am at which time a clock will start and end at 10:30am for judging. If both teams end early , we can have the judging earlier (to prevent the food from staying in the heat)
