CAMP CARDS ARE COMING!!!
The 2014 Camp Card sale kicks off this THURSDAY, MAR. 6 in each district (check with your District Executive for details, if you haven't already heard from them). This year's sale promises to be the BEST EVER, with 5 different cards to choose from (Floyd/Polk, Chattooga/Floyd, Whitfield, Murray and Bartow/Gordon) and dozens of great vendor deals, making these cards worth potentially hundreds of dollars! The cards will sell for $5.00 again this year, and units will receive 50% commission on all cards sold. Scouts can also earn camperships to 2014 NWGA Summer Programs, and the top seller in each district will receive a $100 Wal Mart Gift Card! What a great way to earn extra money for your unit's outdoor program! For a .pdf version of the 2014 Leader Guide and more info, click here.

2014 BSA Membership Fee Increased to $24
At the recent Top Hands meeting, it was announced that the 2014 BSA Membership Fee would increase from $15 to $24 annually. The Northwest Georgia Council does not receive any of this fee directly. Rather, it is the national membership registration fee. What do you as a Scout family get for $24 a year? Click the link below. It might surprise you!
