- Your presentation date should occur no later than April 30, 2017.
If your preferred date is in January 2017 please be sure to submit your preferred date at least 4 weeks prior to your requested presentation.
FOS Presentations should be scheduled to coincide with a major Unit event (e.g. Blue and Gold, Court of Honor). Any significant event where families (parents) are present. FOS presentations cannot be scheduled to coincide with an Eagle Court of Honor.
Once your reservation has been submitted a member of the Golden Arrow District FOS Committee will coordinate with the contact person specified on your reservation form.

In the past there has been a discrepancy on the listing of the Camp James Ray address. If you put the old address into a GPS system it will take you to the old service entrance to the camp, not the new gateway and entrance that was created a few years ago. This has led to some confusion and a bad first impression of our camp.
A new address number has been added for Camp James Ray to rectify the issue. It will take a while for the various map services to be updated. Until then, the best method to get exact driving directions is using GPS coordinates 33.819598, -96.782577.
The new address is:
Camp James Ray
2026 Mill Creek Rd
Pottsboro, TX 75076
Golden Arrow District leadership is looking to establish a new Medical Post at Plano Presby (Texas Health Presbyterian Hospital Plano just east of DNT on Parker). We are looking to fill two roles: an Advisor and a Committee Chair. The hospital has already agreed to be the Chartered Organization. Plano Presby is willing to handle all of the program, but they just want a couple of people to handle the normal operation and coordination of the unit.
So you find yourself a brand new UNIT leader of a scouting unit (Committee Chair, Cubmaster/Scoutmaster/...). Now you have a lot of questions.
This article outlines the various websites that you have at your disposal along with detailing which sites are pertinent to your getting started as a UNIT leader.
