District Key 3 Leadership
Muscatatuck Spring Camporee
The district program team has been hard at work planning and organizing the Muscatatuck District Spring Camporee. The cardboard boat regatta event will be May 21-23 at Maumee Scout Reservation. Patrols will build boats using cardboard, duct tape, glue and latex paint and compete in races and a contest to see which boat stays afloat the longest. There will be prizes for the winners and a contest for best design.
Muscatatuck District Pinewood Derby
Plans are being finalized for the Muscatatuck District Pinewood Derby. Race Day is scheduled for June 5 so Packs have plenty of time to get their own races in now that we’re able to get back to in-person meetings. It will be held outdoors so we can continue to follow social distancing guidelines. Each unit can send the winner from each den to the District race and we’ll den-level races at staggered times. All cars must be from this year and the top three at each level will receive an award.
Merit Badge Day
The annual Merit Badge Day is moving to November 20 this year, and the organizers are asking for your help. Scouts lost out on a lot of opportunity during the pandemic, so we would like suggestions of badges to offer.
Contact Jeff Kelley with any badges you would like to see added to the curriculum.
Don’t forget about our monthly roundtable. We’ve been meeting via ZOOM and have had fun times the last few months. Wayne Wente and John Todd got us ready for spring with presentations about fishing in February and we heard about hazardous weather in March.
If you have any topics you’d like to hear about or want to present a topic, reach out to Bob Mattingly to get on the schedule.
