We would like to thank everyone who showed up to our Pinewood Derby Event on Saturday, January 17. There was a fantastic turnout! The Scout Shop wants to express particular thanks to Preston Harpe (Sales Associate) who handled car design and tool demonstration. We need to thank Justin Schwab (OA Scout), Jeff Schwab (Chief Executive) and Tracy Singer (Assistant Scoutmaster Troop 119) for donating their time, saws, and skill cutting kits all day.
The Scout Shop will be hosting a Remote Shop at the University of Scouting Jan 24th. It is a great opportunity to get your leadership materials and some clearance apparel!

214 Webelo Scouts, 220 adults, and over 100 volunteers braved the cold November air to have Arrowquest this year, which means progress was made on more than 600 Webelos achievements. Lots of pictures from the event are online. A huge thank you to all the volunteers and especially to our Arrowquest leader, Dawn Langley-Brady. Thanks Dawn!!!
