The district is working on improving how it gets information to all of its Units, Scouts, and Scouters. We've set up a Mailchimp account that distributes the district's monthly newsletter. We've started with all the emails listed on youth and adult registrations currently registered in the district. Anyone can subscribe to the district newsletter here. For more information visit the Alpine District Newsletter webpage.

BSA is changing policy regarding tour plans and is no longer requiring them. A cross-functional team has completed an evaluation of the BSA's Tour and Activity Plan, resulting in a recommendation to terminate the plan effective April 1, 2017. We recognize that those who were using the tool may wish to know why so the following FAQs have been developed.  Please review this document for details regarding tour plans:
