The March 15th work day for Alec Chang's Eagle Project is also canceled. Though, this is not related to coronavirus; he's just ahead of schedule! (congrats)

We will monitor the situation develops and update you if any further changes are necessary. If you have any questions, please contact me.

End: Sunday, Mar 22 2020 at 02:00 PM

We'll be camping at the OA Lean-to's campsite at Delmont. This is just down the hill from Schweiker Lodge. On Saturday, we'll have a patrol competition with different challenges and games to test your scout skills and teamwork.

First Aid Meet

Start: Saturday, Mar 07 2020 at 08:30 AM

End: Saturday, Mar 07 2020 at 12:30 PM

Location: Calvary Church, 820 PA-113, Souderton, PA 18964

Get ready to treat for shock, because the District First Aid meet is back at a new location: Calvary Church in Souderton (820 PA-113, Souderton, PA 18964). This venue is much less likely to cancel for snow.

The event will take place in the gymnasium. So, you need to use the 2nd entrance when going north on Route 113. This entrance will take you right around to the gym.

And, this year there's no bleachers. So, if you would like to spectate, the best way is to volunteer as a judge!

This is a district event just like the Klondike. And this year, there is a 3 part patch. So, make sure to sign up to get the second piece.
