Button Gwinnett Scouters ,

I was fortunate to speak to many of you a few weeks ago at our, Annual District Awards & Recognition Banquet.

For those of you who were not able to attend, I addressed the group, providing my vision for Button Gwinnett District. I'd like to share these thoughts with you.


2013 Button Gwinnett Klondike Derby Final Results

Posted on Feb 8 2013 - 5:47am

2013 Button Gwinnett Klondike Derbey - Feb. 1-3, 2013
The thirteenth Klondike Derby is in the history books and fun was had by all.  It was a true Klondike experience with the cold weather and the snow.  The patrols were very competitive in demonstrating their Scout skills.  A big thank you to all of the town mayors, the event would not be what it is without your dedication.  The Scouts are very fortunate to have volunteers like each of you.

Third place was awarded to the Phoenix patrol from troop 827, second place was awarded to the Dukes of Hazard patrol from troop 650 and the grand prize, first place was awarded to troop 650, Huskies patrol.  The race on Sunday was cancelled due to the inclement weather.

As with the original Klondike Gold Rush, there were some heroes at this year’s event.  A big thank you goes out to the health lodge staff of Tricia Gallagher, Tonie Owens and Connie Fisher.  These ladies went above and beyond the call of duty in taking care of cold Scouts.  The health lodge provided warmth, hot chocolate and moral support for the many cold Scouts that visited.  Please tell them thank you when you see them.

Button Gwinnett Scouters,

I hope all of you are doing well! February has arrived and a lot of activities have been going on and are planned.

On January 25th, our Golden Eagle Committee, chaired by Marsha Anderson Bomar, hosted a very successful Golden Eagle Breakfast at the 1818 Club. The breakfast is a way to bring local business and community leaders together to support our Friends of Scouting fundraising campaign. This year, our breakfast honored Mark Tyrrell. Mark has been a past Scouter, and as the proprietor of Tapp Lumber has supported countless numbers of Scouts by donating lumber and supplies for their Eagle Scout projects. We're so fortunate to have someone like Mark in our community! In addition to Marsha, I want to personally thank the rest of the Golden Eagle Committee for their dedication and leadership:
