GSC Troops and Crews Wanted for Cub FUN Day

Does your troop or crew have a special Scoutcraft talent and would like to demonstrate this skill to Cubs and parents at Cub FUN Day on Saturday, October 19, 2019?  Last year two troops  demonstrated Scoutcraft skills to Cubs and their parents, such as cooking, knots, leaf identification  and axe yard skills.  We are looking for two additional units to again show and teach Scoutcraft to our Cub Scout guests.  We anticipate 500 Cubs plus their parents!  All units will be stationed in sites between Bowie and Carson.
