Fairwell from the District Commissioner, please pass this on to your volunteers.

Via Rex Jewett:

Greetings fellow Scouters,

After years of being the Lewis and Clark District Commissioner, I have decided to take a step back and become a Unit Commissioner again. I want to thank all of you and your volunteers for making Lewis and Clark one of the best, if not the best, District in the Montana Council. My term officially ends June 30th. Brad Weaver has taken over the administrative duties, he will be at tonight’s Roundtable and District meetings please give him your full co-operation.
We have a new District Executive, Sandra Dogiakos. Please come to the meeting tonight and introduce yourself, I know her, she’s very capable and very nice.  
Tonight’s roundtable will be the new YPT2 training, please send your people to this, I took it last week online and it was somewhat confusing to use. The live training will be much easier.
As always I am sending this message to you via BCC for your security.
Thank You again, you made my job easy,
Rex Jewett
District  Commissioner
Lewis and Clark District  (Retired!)
See you on the golf course!

District Derby Canceled 

Due to a lack of track and volunteers, the 2018 district pinewood derby has been canceled. 

Per announcements beginning early December, via this newsletter, district meetings, roundtables, and district calendar, we needed support from our Cub units in setting up a track and a few to assist with weigh-ins and running the cars. In order to adequately prepare, we had until January 20th to have volunteers come forward. That, unfortunately did not happen.

Hopefully we will be able to resume the races for our Scouts in 2019!
