A Word From The Coordinator
Look around you: Winter is over;
the winter rains are over, gone!
Spring flowers are in blossom all over.
The whole world’s a choir—and singing! – Song of Solomon 2:11-12 (MSG)
As I write this update, I can’t help but look ahead to Spring and the excitement planned this year.
The headline reads “And Their Off!”
For me, this has a couple of meanings. First, we are getting started on all of the activities we have coming up. And secondly, the headline makes me think about the Ranger Derby we finished.
This update will introduce all of the activities we will be doing this Spring. Still, first, I would like to congratulate all the participants in the Ranger Derby.
This year’s Ranger Derby was a bounceback from the abbreviated version we ran last year. We got to bring back all of our fun activities and even add a Mario Kart Live Circuit Tournament. With over 60 cars entering, the action was non-stop.
KLONDIKE RUN PREP DAY
On Sunday, February 20th, We will be having a Klondike Run Prep day after church for all the men and boys attending. We have a lot to do to get ready. This will run from about noon (right after church) until about 5 PM. We will be preparing for the Klondike Run by practicing our skits, songs, and chants, painting the sled, and various other things that will need to be done for the campout.
Please have the boys bring a bagged lunch. If you do not attend Sunday Services at Fellowship Wesleyan, just drop your son off when your worship services end or around noon at the back door. We will be here.
The Klondike Run will be on February 25th – 27th from 6PM Friday to 11 AM on Sunday and costs $90.00 for the complete trip. Space is limited, so I will need your registration forms and payment by Wednesday, February 9, 2022. After that, there will be a 10.00 late fee we must pay.
Merit Days Coming Soon
This year’s dates are March 12th, April 2nd, May 7th and possibly one in June. Times are usually 8 AM to 3 PM.
Merit camps are an intense and fun way to earn merits and get ahead on the trail to your next advancement. You will spend time doing exciting activities in a positive Christian atmosphere.
Look for a Merit Day update soon, but mark your calendars now!
Fellowship Wesleyan Royal Rangers now has a new way of letting people know about our latest events. We still have our up-to-date event calendar for long-term planning.
But have you checked out our upcoming event page? If you want to just take a quick glance at what’s happening at OP 292, this is just for you. This is an excellent page to bookmark, so you always have the information at your fingertips.
Want to be the first to know if an upcoming event at OP 292? If you haven’t signed up for calendar notifications from Outpost 292, now is the perfect time to do that. Just scroll to the bottom of this page, and when I update the calendar, you will get an automatic email. No more searching for those lost flyers I keep sending home.
As always, thank you for the opportunity to work with your boys, and if you have any questions or concerns, feel free to reach out to me at any time.
Have a great Easter, and I hope to see you all in two weeks when we resume.
