3rd Annual Silver Comet Roundtable Picnic

Posted on Jun 25 2016 - 4:30pm

Join us for the 3rd Annual Silver Comet District Roundtable Picnic on Thursday, July 14th at 7pm. We'll be serving hamburgers and hotdogs and asking everyone to bring a side or dessert. This will be a mostly social event, so please wear your "Class B" uniform.

Please bring $4 per person to cover the cost of the hamburgers, hotdogs, drinks, and paper products.
Also, it would be great if Scouters would "sponsor" the OA youth for the picnic since they will be meeting at the same time.


On the signup page click “RSVP NOW” to register to attend. For planning purposes, please click on “available slot” to indicate whether you'd like a hamburger, two hotdogs, or a vegetarian option.
Then everyone will have to click the "add more items" box on the RSVP so you can answer what side/dessert you're bringing and whether you're willing to sponsor an OA youth to eat at the picnic.

We will be meeting at the regular location, but we will be OUTSIDE under the covered pavilion.

John Lyon will lead the Silver Comet Membership Committee’s outreach to establish New Units in our District.

John’s long tenure in Atlanta Area Scouting and his personal knowledge of so many Scouters at the Council, District and Unit level uniquely qualify him to lead the networking and make the connections that will bring Silver Comet Scouting to more of our area Youth through the formation of New Scouting Units.

John will be the point of contact for all questions, recommendations, suggestions and leads on the formation and establishment of new Scout Units for all of our Program areas.

If you know of any organization that you think might Charter a Cub Pack, Troop, Crew, Team, Ship or Post, contact John Lyon at newunit@silvercometdistrictbsa.org

David Craig is the new Silver Comet Merit Badge Counselor Designee

Posted on Apr 23 2016 - 8:11pm

Our thanks to David Muller for serving as our Merit Badge Counselor Designee since the beginning of 2015. With only very slight arm twisting David has agreed to transfer his proven planning and organizational skills to the guidance and support of various Silver Comet Program events.

David Craig has accepted the MBC Designee position, and all Merit Badge Counselor Application paperwork for Silver Comet District should be submitted to him.

David will be available at our District Roundtables to accept MBC paperwork, and will dedicate time to reviewing and ensuring all submissions are complete and correct. This will significantly reduce the time involved in identifying and resolving corrections and omissions.
We expect this will reduce the number of incomplete applications and improve the application experience for all of our Merit Badge Counselors and applicants.
