Kub Kars postponed to May

With consideration of Scouts Canada’s Risk Management Policies, recommendations from Ontario Public Health and Public Health and Safety Canada, it is with regrets that the decision has been made to postpone the Whitby Scouting Kub Car Races until the beginning of May.
As you may have read, new recommendations have come from our public health organisations regarding meeting of groups over a number of differing sizes. Even a small Pack can have an attendance of near 100 persons by the time family members are accounted for, especially as smaller groups are paired together.
While the chances of contracting COVID-19 are rather small in the grand scheme of things, it is in our opinion that we do everything reasonable to prevent our cherished members and their families being exposed.
We will provide you with a firm date for the Kub Kars Event as soon as we are able to.
Good Scouting. Be Safe.
Scouter Greg Long, Whitby Pack Events Lead

White Pine Council Wood Badge 2 Training

April 3-5, 2020 and May 29-31, 2020, Camp Samac Scout Centre, 275 Conlin Rd. East, Oshawa, Ontario
This training offers you a chance to further increase your knowledge and confidence in the section you are working. As well as developing a detailed plan for your section, you will obtain a wealth of tools and "trick of the trade" to take back and make your section meetings a joy to run. There will be comprehensive skill training. You will connect with dozens of Scouters just like you who will have lots to share and you will make a few friends for life. Once the Wood Badge is completed you will be invited to join a local Gilwell Club and an invitation to attend the annual Gilwellian leaders only camp in the second weekend of September every year.
Registration open in October.
Check out www.woodbadge2.ca for more details.

Scouting's Honours & Awards for Volunteers

link to scouts.ca thanks

Wouldn't it be nice to be recognized for your volunteer years, special efforts and hard sweat? We have a co-ordinator to help you with just that. Scouts Canada has a wide range of awards and pins to show thanks to its volunteers but it needs you to initiate the process. You can suggest a name, write out what you know about the Scouting efforts of the individual, then submit it to the committee for consideration. For more information about awards, contact Terry Eldridge.
