We had an enjoyable evening as scouters at the spring Court of Honor in Pahrump NV. We have quite the gathering of troops in the Spring Mountain District to share the achievements and adventures had over the last 6 months.
The Drug Enforcement Administration (DEA) created a Red Ribbon Week patch to encourage and support sScouts who wish to learn about Red Ribbon and participate in local efforts to educate youth about the dangers of drug abuse.
Red Ribbon Week was established in memory of the sacrifices made to help keep our communities drug-free and encourage youth to lead healthy lives, free of drugs. Observed annually from October 23-31, Red Ribbon Week is a national celebration to promote youth education on the dangers of substance abuse.
The DEA encourages all Boy Scout and Girl Scout groups to participate. Patches will be given to the first 25,000 qualifying Boy Scout and Girl Scouts.
All Boy Scouts and Girl Scouts are eligible to participate in the program. To earn the DEA Red Ribbon Week Patch, Scouts must complete the following:
Each Scout leader or designee must submit the Intent to Participate form by Friday, October 5th, 2012. The online form is available at www.JustThinkTwice.com

Each Scout must attend a drug prevention education session.
Each Scout must take the DEA Drug-Free Pledge.
The Scout leader must submit the Activity Report upon completion of program requirements, no later than Friday, December 14th, 2012. The online form is available at www.JustThinkTwice.com

Lets all give a big old watermelon cheer for our Roundtable on Jan 12, 2012!
We had a great meeting with Rosemary Wixom sharing some insights of how to apply scouting principles to help reach more of our youth. Ask someone that went what they thought about it.... Chances are you know some one that did...
Prior to this meeting the comittee had the privledge of chowing down on some good food and conversation.
Thanks for all that participated and made this evening possible.
The annual Klondike Derby is on its way to Spring Mountain District. It is going to be held up Mount Charleston on March 2-3 2012. There will be cold weather scouting skills and of course the Klodike Race! More info to come. Any questions email Kent Fabbi
The venue has changed for the Derby!!!! The new location is the McWilliams campground just outside of the Las Vegas Ski & Snowboard Resort up Lee Canyon. The change is effective emmediatly. To reach Lee Canyon travel north on US95 and turn left on Lee Canyon road(highway 156). The ski logde is at the end of the canyon road and the campground turnoff is just prior to that (16 miles on Lee Canyon Road).
