Cub Scout Gold Rush

February 1, 2019

Missouri National Guard Training Center, Macon MO

 

Registration

Pre-registration is required!  This will be done via DoubleKnot from the council’s webpage, and registration will close at 5:00 PM on January 18.  No late registrants will be accommodated!  The registration fee is $10 per youth and $5 per adult.  The fee includes the patch, insurance for the day, and program materials.  Payment will be made onsite at check-in.  Checks (made out to Boy Scouts) are preferred. 

 

Event Information

Check-in for the Cub Gold Rush will be 8:00 AM to 8:15 AM on Saturday, February 1.  The opening ceremony will be at 8:20 AM.  Events start at 8:30 AM and run until noon (no lunch provided).

 

The events will be a mix of indoor and outdoor activities.  We will need Cub adults to help with events, in addition to helping as walking leaders.  Please email Phil Leatherman (phil_leatherman@yahoo.com) or text him (573-822-3666) with the names of potential helpers and the area that they can help with (Crafts, Games, Wrist Rockets, STEM, Scoutcraft, or Nature) as soon as you register.  You can also contact him with questions.

 

No special equipment is needed for Cubs.  Dress for the weather (wear layers, have warm gloves and a warm hat, and be sure to have waterproof footwear).  This is a great opportunity for the Cubs to gather the Scout Essentials for an outdoor event.  It is also recommended that you have extra clothes, especially socks, in the car for the ride home.  Packs can bring sleds and toboggans for sledding, weather permitting. 

 

Directions to the National Guard Training Center

From the south

Take 63 north toward Macon.  You will enter the city limits of Macon and see the National Guard Armory on the left.  Just before the Armory entrance there is a dirt road called Kermit Road (also known as Missouri National Guard Road), turn left from 63 onto this road.  Continue until you reach a stop sign.  Turn left at the stop sign onto Coates Street.  At the bottom of the hill, bear right.  You are now on Jaguar Street (County Road 718 B). In about a half-mile, the entrance to the National Guard Training Facility will be on your left.  Turn to enter the facility and follow the road to the top of the hill, where you will turn right.  The camp HQ will be in a building on your right (look for the sign) and you will check in there.  Please park in the area to the east of the fenced-in area.

 

From the north

If you are traveling 36 from either the east or west, take the Macon exit to south 63.  People coming from the north will already be on 63, and just need to continue on.  Drive on 63 south through Macon.  At the south end of Macon, you will see the National Guard Armory on your right.  Take a right on the dirt road immediately south of the Armory entrance (Kermit Road, also known as Missouri National Guard Road).  Continue until you reach a stop sign.  Turn left at the stop sign onto Coates Street.  At the bottom of the hill, bear right.  You are now on Jaguar Street (County Road 718 B). In about a half-mile, the entrance to the National Guard Training Facility will be on your left.  Turn to enter the facility and follow the road to the top of the hill, where you will turn right.  The camp HQ will be in a building on your right (look for the sign) and you will check in there.  Please park in the area to the east of the fenced-in area.
