This Saturday, October 10, 2014 - WEBELOS Coyote Trail Xtreme at Bovay Scout Ranch
This is a first for our council and it looks like it will be a great program for our WEBELOS friends. Crew-911 along with our green shirted friends will be presenting a First Aid session for the guys. We will provide some basic level information on handling bites and stings and throw in a good CPR/AED demonstration. The council is expecting about 200 WEBELOS and we will be conducting five forty-five minute sessions. Food is provided for our youth staffers and we will be camping. Please let me or David LeGaye know quick if you want to participate. The weather will be great and the teaching assignment should be fun. If we have enough staffers, we will likely add a back-boarding demonstration too. My bet is by the third or fourth session, our youth staff will be ready to tie up a few participants so back-boarding will fit in perfectly. It would be a Kodak moment though.
Our adult members are very welcome too. We may be able to finalize our Fall Wilderness and Remote First Aid program dates Saturday evening too.
We are slowly working through the issues running our programs away from Camp Strake. For the most part, we have a good operating format now and we are ready to scale back up to a full training schedule for Fall and, for sure. For Spring 2015. Lots of changes to The American Red Cross programs too. Many Scouters that have known us for all or a good part of our now 20+ years of offering American Red Cross programs to Scouts know that we are known nationally for our training. There is a lot going on behind the scenes right now and I can not wait to announce what the elves are up to. it involves lots of travel and training Scouts and Scouters to teach ARC classes. but that will be for a later Enews!
We never express often enough how valuable our youth and adult volunteers are to our program and our future. Thank you for making us the best and, by far the most unique training organization anywhere.

Friday, May 30, 2014 - Crew-911 Event at GSUSA Camp Silver Springs
Saturday/Sunday, May 31-June 1 - Wilderness and Remote First Aid at GSUSA Camp Silver Springs
We do have plenty of room in our Wilderness and Remote First Aid program this weekend, especially for groups that include youth participants. I had the opportunity to tour the Silver Springs camp this morning and I am sure we are going to have a great class.
Friday, May 30 is our next Crew-911 Event. We will be at GSUSA Camp Silver Springs preparing for our Saturday/Sunday WaRFA class. All our Crew-911 members, youth class participants and our many Green Shirted Friends are invited to help us set up then enjoy music, movies or X-Box. I am sure that pizza will magically appear too. Camping for our participants and staff will be in cabins this time too.
Saturday/Sunday will be our first WaRFA at Camp Silver Springs and we will need lots of help getting ready for what will likely be a very large class. We will be self-catering this event again and could sure use all the help we can get with the logistics. We do need our WaRFA youth and adult staffers to pull this off. David will need a good number of willing volunteers for Sunday too as victims. My guess is the camp will never be the same! Please let me or David LeGaye know if you are planning to help. Saturday night is Pit Master BBQ!
We have had a good deal more difficulty working out our 2014 Spring schedule than we first expected BUT we have now completed the transition of our core programs from Camp Strake to the GSUSA facilities near Willis. Fall should go a little easier! We are still very excited about our move and working with our new GSUSA friends! We expect to continue our tradition of providing great training programs to Scouts and Scouters. The dedication of our many youth and adult volunteers is what makes this all work! Thanks guys. Your help is greatly appreciated
