Back To Gilwell

Posted on by on December 6th, 2013 | Comments Off


“BACK TO GILWELL” will be the first annual Northeast Georgia Council Wood Badge Reunion to be held on Saturday, August 16, 2014 at Scoutland.

What’s it all about? It’s about a day of FUN and games, reminiscing and laughs including dinner by the famous “Road Kill Café”, with the goal of fundraising to establish a Northeast Georgia Council Wood Badge SCHOLARSHIP FUND!

Who can attend? Anyone who has earned his or her Wood Badge Beads may attend. Beads do not have to be from NEGA; they can be from any WB Course – anywhere – after all, we are ‘Troop 1’. We encourage you to bring your friends from other councils with you.

What time does it start / end? Initial plans are: Check in from noon to 12:30, Patrol Leader election from 12:30 – 1, then Gilwell assembly. (It will be full! The patrols will be large and the song loud!) This will be followed by the games of WB ending in a massive game of WB Jeopardy. Next dinner will be around 5pm with slides shows and special awards. We expect to depart at 7:00pm.

What do we wear? That’s easy – you may come in your “patrol garb”, course T-shirt, Class A (Field uniform), Class B (Activity uniform), casual dress or a Tux if you like. Patrol flags are encouraged as well.

Will we be in patrols? – Of course! All Beavers present will form one giant Beaver Patrol, elect a Patrol Leader and take part in the events as one massive Beaver patrol. The same goes for all the other patrols. Gilwell assembly will be by patrol order; we expect the line may extend beyond the Ranger’s house!

What’s the cost? Cost to attend will be $20.00, which will include a special patch and dinner. We encourage you and your patrol to come with your buckets of spare change to use in some of the games and to donate to the NEGA WB Scholarship Fund to help other Scouters attend WB. And, of course, we will accept folding money and checks for Scholarship Fund contributions.
