Is there no other church in your area that has Royal Rangers?

Is there another church that would consider having RR?

Along with two of my male colleagues, I'll be taking the HS boys on a two-day survival retreat next month. We start by driving to a dam on the Missouri River and getting an inside tour. Following that, we backpack downstream for a few miles until reaching our destination and setting up camp.

We're breaking the boys up into 3 teams and will teach a total of 9 survival classes. The boys will also compete after each class, earning points for their team. Devotions are attached to each class, and we have a guest speaker that night. We will also fish for trout, supplementing our diet with some secret MREs donated by the National Guard.

The only thing to worry about is the weather. It can be pretty fickle out here in the Spring. We will have a truck pre-staged there with extra supplies, just in case. Looking forward to it! If I can't get Rangers for real, I'll get it some other way.

That reminds me. Our District youth and children's coordinator stopped by the church Wed night and ate with us. He was pleased that we are at least using Ranger and Missionette materials in a way that works for us in our Voyagers program. Our pastor interviewed a couple (associate/children's pastor) on Friday. He didn't mention anything about it today.

Went to the Climbing Gym last Tuesday night and had 8 folk go through belay cert and do some climbing for 1.5 hours. Cost about 100.00.
A week from today we go to Sam's Throne to do a over night campout and rappel down a 87 foot cliff.

We should have a good group going. Great place to camp and the view is awesome.

OK.. got a pile of derby cars in the mail yesterday...75 to be exact. Boys and girls are going to be participating. Scouts canada cars cost me about 4$ each..way cheaper then GPH after shipping and taxes. Borrowing a track from the local scout troop and a date is set for May 6th. It's going to be an awesome time. We just have to plan a few days of crafting the cars.

You've probably done this before, but just in case...do a little internet homework for fast car tips. There are all kinds of simple things you can do to help a boy's car be competitive.

Hey car kits are only 3.69 each here and they are hand delivered from our District Office Royal Rangers!

I know, I know. .21 x 70 won't cover the cost of shipping and taxes. So Race ON with what ever you can get for the best price.

District has asked the question if we want to disallow boyscout kits in our races. With the recent Gender Identy and lifestyle acceptance in the Boyscouts we are considering it.

Boyscouts wanted us to drop "Pinewood" Derby so we changed ours to Ranger Derby.

In light of the moral changes recently .... I am voting for Ranger Kits only. 2 months ago I didn't really care either way.

Leadership 203 and 102 taught all day sunday from 12:30 to 8:00 pm.

This is a necessary evil. Yet they could make it better by giving us the option of taking the boys out on a day outing and teaching some real skills. This sitting in a classroom for 8 hours listening to boys marketing a product has nothing to do with leadership. It's fooo fooo.
arrrrgh...we gotta do it again in 2 weeks. I would rather be the last man standing and take a paintball shot to the lower leg....GRIN!

Always room for improvement. We just need to grumble a bit more and maybe they will fix it.

We continued reading and going over 2 Corinthians 4: 18.

So we fix our eyes not on what is seen, but on what is unseen, since what is seen is temporary, but what is unseen is eternal.

I brought in a bunch of empty toilet paper tubes, and divided the boys onto either side of a long table.  I said that one side will be "humans", and one side will be "angels".  (For the sake of the teaching point, I would be "God".)

So I gave the toilet paper tubes to the "Humans" and told them that they could only look straight ahead through them.  So they could see, but not all of the things (spiritual) that were going on around them.  Then, I would hold my hand over the "humans" with 3 or 4 fingers up, and ask what kind of sign "God" was giving.  The "humans" said, I can't even see your hand.

One of the young teenager "humans" was getting a little bit unruly.  I had him look forward toward the "angels" through his tubes and say, "God, give me a sign!".  Then I dropped a soccer ball on his head from about a foot up.

He yelled, "Ow!".

I said, "Oh, you didn't see that coming?   The "angels" did."

Well. I had a meeting change and didn't get to try the devotion. I will give it a go one of these days!

We held our first annual Derby race this past saturday.  There were 37 cars entered in 5 categories and 60 people in total with a number of our families that couldn't make it.  Such an easy event to hold, set up took 45 mins. Clean up took about that too. One of our GM leaders made the trophies. We had planned on racing from 9:30 to 12:00 but most of the heats were done by 10:45.  Food was provided and simple, hot dogs, chips, cut veggies and fruit and water.  High octane coffee for the adults.  We had so much fun.
All ready planning for next year to make it bigger and better!
