Literally!  As Scouting in Central Escarpment Council works to integrate and support the Areas, there is a NEW, IMPROVED, (ah heck, add some more adjectives) BLOG maintained at the Council level.  There are breakdowns by Area (and yes, Wellington is there as a category!), as well as by section and activity.  It’s also hosted with our own servers, and you’ll find speed is much improved as well.  I will be continuing to maintain the new blog, though others will be posting as well (the other 7 areas and the Council Commissioner come to mind 🙂 )!  So, please bookmark the NEW location, and if you’re using the RSS feeds, make sure you add yourself to the new blog at:

Happy Scouting in the new Scouting Year, and  I’m off to post the 30 or 40 blog entries that haven’t happened as we reinvented ourselves!

Training – Fall dates and location set for Wellington

You’ve been hearing it, nothing has changed. In order to register this fall, if you’re a leader with less than 2 years experience in the section you’re in, you’re expected to have taken a Woodbadge Part I within 1 year of joining your section (full details in ealier posts to this blog).  Wellington will be running a Woodbadge Part I for Colony, Pack and Troop (and Group Commissioner’s as well).  For the sections, take Module 1 on ONE of Sep 22nd, Sep 30th or Oct 8th at Barber Scout Camp.  The rest will be on Oct 23rd & 24th at College Heights Secondary Schoole, with Module 2 on Sat AM, Module 3 on Sat afternoon, and Module 4 on Sat evening.  Module 5 runs on Fri night.  Full details will be posted.  The Group Commissioners runs all modules from Fri night through Sat night.  Cost $36!  About 25% of our Volunteers do NOT have the training they require in order to register.  Please check the CEC website as well for updates on training available in other Areas of the Council.  Click -HERE-.
