Cast Iron Chef

Our next Cast Iron Chef Program is on Sept. 12 and Oct 17 from 7 to 7:30 pm at the RLC. Mrs. Linscott is hosting the September edition as a guest chef. 16th from 7 to 7:30 pm. We will be working on fajitas in the RLC kitchen.

As always, attendees will be given the opportunity to sample the food. All scouts are welcome to attend. It will be a great primer for new Scouts and will also help more experienced Scouts with some alternative menus. It can also come in handy for menu ideas for those boys working the Cooking Merit Badge.

Oct 15: Jamboree on the Internet

What Is Jamboree-on-the-Internet?

Jamboree-on-the-Internet, or JOTI, is an annual international Scouting event sponsored by the World Organization of the Scout Movement. Each year, during the third weekend in October, Scouts from around the world gather online to learn about other cultures and the activities in which other Scouts participate. They communicate with each other using Internet-enabled devices such as computers, laptops, tablets, and mobile phones. Last year, JOTI had nearly 16,000 Scouts and leaders from 146 countries registered in the worldwide JOTA-JOTI database!
