It's the most wonderful time of the year....to plan for January's Christmas Tree Pick-Up.
We will meet at the LDS Rose Hill chapel (same place as Roundtable), at 7:00pm on October 25th.
Please have a representative of your troop at the meeting to preserve your area(s) from last year
and the ability to ‘speak for’ the troop in any ‘horse trading’ that may take place.

Webelos Woods is coming soon!
Saturday, October 6th, at the Rose Hill Presbyterian Church, 12202 NE 90th Street, Kirkland, WA 98033
Webelos Woods is designed to give first and second year Webelos and their parents a preview of the Boy Scouting experience. The program reinforces Boy Scouting values, procedures, methods and skills. It is an introduction to the Boy Scouts being a "boy led" program versus the "adult led" program used in the Cub Scouts.
Please send John Riekena (firstname.lastname@example.org) and John Harthun (JHarthun@seattlebsa.org) an email if your troop or crew took 5 days or more for a trip this summer. This does not include Scout Camp or National High Adventure camps. Your hours will be included in the National Camping report.
Updated Youth Protection Training DEADLINE - October 1, 2018
You will find the new training in the same spot as before. Just visit https://my.scouting.org/ (follow the youth protection images and prompts).
All volunteers must take the new training by October 1, 2018, no matter when they took the previous training.
Remember, as of June, any adults accompanying a Scouting unit who are present at an activity for 72 total hours or more must be registered as a leader, including completion of a criminal background check and Youth Protection Training. The 72 hours need not be consecutive.
The Oct 1 training deadline will be a challenge for some – but the safety of our youth is too important to delay.
Be certain to add the 2019 District Camporee to your Troop's calendar!
October 13: Environmental Science
November 10: First Aid
December 8: Citizenship in the World
