We are limited in class size due to Red Cross guidelines, so please pre-register for this class. First come, first serve.

You will discover how to give life-changing devotions and how to mentor boys and young men into spiritual leaders.

Ranger Safety is required for the Safety Level of the Outpost Leaders Advancement Levels.

FCF Track

Buckskin Advancement Preparation – Our Chapter President, Fred Lipowicz, will be helping you prepare for your advancement to Buckskin – everything from skills practice to name selection.

Dutch Oven Cooking – This class is always a favorite. Join our chef, Steve Copeland, and learn how to cook up some amazing grub for your boys (or even your spouse).

Geocaching – Bring your smart phone and let’s go find some “treasure.”

Survival Kits – Paul Ehrich will show you how to make survival kits of all sizes. I got mine last year and it is awesome! I’ve used it everywhere I’ve gone. These kits are packed full of goodies.

Ranger Kids Track

Miscellaneous Cool Classes

Missouri at regulation postal shoot. Thirdly, we will have BRAND NEW THIS YEAR, an archery target thrower! That’s right. Flying and rolling archery targets. It is a whole new realm of fun.

So that's a packed schedule. Our state leaders conference is this weekend too. I think it's scheduled for a couple hours on Saturday, but they had a note saying they were letting out at the designated time so that those going to the Darlington NASCAR race could get there in time. Laughing

We got next to nothing out here. My wife has lots of family in Missouri. If we could stand the humidity, the positives could lure us there.

We used to have a banquet as well on Sat night but it was a lot of extra work so we nixed that.

It's still a lot of fun. Fred Deaver used to make our conferences. Last year or so health reasons has kept him home.

When Richard Marriott first took over as National Commander in 2000 our Commanders Conferences were huge. With the changes these past 14 years we might have a hundred there. I am hoping for 500 there. "It could happen"

That is something I sorely miss.
Our twice a year Commanders conferences were always great. They always had a time for Worship, a teaching by the host Pastor, fellowship & group discussion. I loved to meet other Commanders & share ideas. But with a new District Commander in 2009, the much loved conference became all about training.
By late 2011 we stopped having Commanders conferences, because so few people were coming.  Crying or Very sad

It's got to be fun and it's got to count for something.
We have fun and I look forward to this event.

It wished it was like the good ole days where everyone was sitting around talking about what they were doing with their group. With no focus going on it's not near as good.

Being the premier mentoring program for boys has gotten so fuzzy it's all blurry...so much so they don't even know what to teach anymore. Were still having success teaching RTK. The rest of it falls off like dead skin. The old program was the life and blood of Royal Rangers. Always pointing to Jesus life and Blood yet doing it in a focused concise way and repeating it over and over again because that is the only way they/we learn anthing. Once and done is a waste of time as the end results is only "I have a vague memory of that" When we quit repeating something we loose it.
