Delta Interior Game Ranch (our vendor for the Buffalo prizes) notified us on August 3rd that they have cancelled their hunts for the 2.5yo animals for this year.
If you have purchased tickets, please be patient as we account for tickets still out with our VFW sellers.
A full refund will be coming back to you very soon from Post 10029.

Scouting is about character and leadership.
The Scout Oath and Law – our very foundation – call for helpfulness, bravery, common courtesy, and respect among all people. Our values call us to stand up to injustice, as we strive to help other people at all times.
The Scouting movement recognizes and celebrates that the attributes that make us different actually draw us together as Scouts, citizens, and human beings. We refuse to accept violence or injustice toward another human being.
As Scouts, we recognize that much work remains to be done. We are committed to empathy, compassion, and to meaningfully improve. Scouting teaches young people to come together to find peaceful solutions, to work to become the best versions of themselves, and to create a better world.
BSA’s national cub scout staff have put together some fun activity videos that can be useful Cub Scout recruiting tools. The YouTube videos are short, 2 to 5 minutes, with a purpose and an activity. Activities are all requirements found in our program. They are not branded as BSA or Cub Scouts.
As local councils and units use digital and online resources, such as video conferencing, to continue Scouting meetings, projects and advancement during the COVID-19 outbreak, the National Council is providing guidance. Note this guidance is not comprehensive, and if it differs from the legal requirements of your state or local jurisdiction, please consult with your local council attorney.
Topics addressed in the Digital Safety Guidelines that volunteer leaders should be aware of:

Safeguard personal information.
Recording online meetings is not authorized.
Collecting personal information from youth under 13 is not recommended.
More details on each topic are included in the full Digital Safety Guidelines document.
Relevant information from these Digital Safety Guidelines can be shared with your volunteer leaders.

Scouts do stuff. They build things. Play with purpose. Make friends and work together.
Set goals and clear them. They go places. Physically. Mentally. Spiritually. These life-changing experiences — and the confidence they provide — become bricks in the wall of childhood. Bricks that eventually form a foundation. One a Scout can stand on to embrace opportunity and overcome obstacles. For the parents watching in awe, it’s not a question of where their Scout will go, but where won’t they go.
