The time of the year to consider and nominate registered adult volunteers for the Silver Beaver Award is here. The Silver Beaver Award is the highest award a council can bestow upon its registered adult volunteer leaders. Recipients of this award are registered Scouters who have made an impact on youth through service given at the council level.

2020 was a year full of unprecedented challenges to overcome that led to significant changes to the way Scouting events and meetings are held. Consider the leadership within your unit/s and the ways they helped implement these changes. Reflect on the different and unique activities these leaders planned to keep their scouts involved and working towards advancement.

Texas Trails Council needs your assistance in finding these volunteer leaders so they can be recognized for their exceptional service to the youth within our council. Nomination forms need to be submitted to the council by January 15, 2020.

Spanning across more than 60 Councils and the National Council, the Cub Scout Den Meeting Virtual Resources Project, which was launched to support Den Leaders, created nearly 100 “Tips & Tricks” videos covering a wide variety of topics. These videos tie to the “teaching moment” of a Den Meeting and are intended to support Den Leaders whether they are conducting meetings in-person, fully virtual, or through a hybrid model. To learn more about how to utilize these resources your Den Leaders can view an orientation webinar HERE

Unit Advancement

When purchasing advancement, the Council requires the following:

If your unit is inputting advancement and/or achievements into Scoutbook you will be required to show the purchase order at the time you make your purchase to insure items have been documented.

If your unit is using Advancement reports (written forms) not inputted into Scoutbook then you are required to present the report at time of purchase.

If you are requesting items to be gathered by store personnel a 48-hour (not counting weekends) time frame is required. If you will include an email address, then you will be notified when your request has been gathered. Please list persons who will be allowed to pick up the merchandise.

If you are requesting items to be mailed, please be sure to give the address of where you want the merchandise to be sent. We will mail your request as soon after the 48-hour processing time as possible. We are unable to give a delivery time unless you request an overnight express mailing. A credit card will be required to charge mailing fees.

If your unit has completed a Unit charge authorization form, then only the persons listed on that form will be allowed to charge to account.
