Many of you know Reeves Lodge from the many NLS, SOS and other training courses held there. If you are interested in donating items for this auction, please contact me at

Our efforts to publicize the 2009 TOR continue.

Flyers have been or will be handed out at many of the upcoming local TOR’s, at the NE-7A and NE-7B Section Conclaves, GNYC’s Summer Camp Ten Mile River, the Ten Mile River Scout Museum, the TMR Annual Alumni Day, the GNYC 2009 Steakout (Program Kickoff), the Lodge newsletter, the Blue Heron and other local Scouting events.

We have also added a Facebook event for the TOR to try to tap into a different segment of the Scouting Community.

Flyers or information will also be available in ISCA website, on various dealer lists, local Scout Camps, etc.

Please mark your calendars; I look forward to seeing you all at the TOR.

You can get a copy of the 2009 TOR flyer here.

Look forward to seeing you there!


It is natural to man to indulge in the illusions of hope. We are apt to shut our eyes against a painful truth — and listen to the song of that syren, till she transforms us into beasts.” –Patrick Henry
