Days left to recharter: 9
Remember that your unit's recharter is due on December 1st. That gives us a month to process it so your unit's registration doesn't expire on December 31st. When your unit's registration expires, your unit ceases to exist and is not authorized to conduct the Scouting program. First, if you haven't already, grab your recharter packet from our office, then log into Internet Rechartering, finish that roster, get your signatures, and deliver it! Let me know if you have any questions.

Good news! The Komohana service area* recognition dinner is scheduled for Friday, April 21 at the Waipahu LDS Stake Center. This is one of our biggest yearly events for volunteers and their families, and will feature all the district awards, from Den Leader of the Year to the coveted District Award of Merit. We'll also have super-'ono food and fellowship with hundreds of the most awesome people on the west side.

* = Kamehameha, Ko Olina, Ka'ala districts

For anyone who misses their Ka'ala Scout family and would like to see our smiling faces again, please join us at Roundtable, Thursday, December 8 at the Mililani LDS Stake Center. That's on Meheula Pkwy. It'll be at 7 PM and feature training and fellowship for Boy Scout and Cub Scout leaders. 

Staff office hours are continuing in Mililani for December! This is where I (Caleb Turner, unit-serving district associate for Ka'ala District) hang out on the 2nd and 4th Thursdays at Starbucks at Mililani Town Center  from 4 to 6 to talk to anyone who wants to drop by. Because I'll be off island for Christmas, my only office hours this time will be December 8.
West side's first Venturing Roundtable breakout happened in November at the Kamehameha Roundtable. Keep coming for training and networking with other Venturing leaders. LDS wards looking to activate their Venture crews (for young men ages 16 and 17) are especially encouraged to attend! It's on the second Wednesdays at 7 PM at Nimitz Elementary School.
Journey to Excellence Gold Unit Award 2015How's your unit doing on Journey to Excellence? Want to earn the coveted JTE Gold or Silver award for your Scouts and leaders to wear on their sleeve? Units that strive for high marks in JTE are the ones that recruit and keep the most members. And you can also help your council earn JTE Gold again for 2016. To earn a Journey to Excellence award, all you have to do is fill out the one-page scorecard, sign it, and return it to our office with your recharter packet. Here are the PDFs for Explorer postsTroopsPacksCrewsTeams, and Ships.
Schofield Days is back on December 28-29! You can choose one day for an awesome adventure for your Cub Scouts at Schofield Barracks. Registration opens later in November at https://scoutingevent.com/104-SchofieldDays.
Speaking of Journey to Excellence, another thing that will help us a ton in earning Gold again this year is to input any time your members spent on service projects this year. Just head to the BSA's Service Hours Reporting website at servicehours.scouting.org. Your login information is in your recharter packet. Thank you for helping us accomplish the mission of Scouting!
Boy Scouts: We want you at Winter Summit at Camp Pupukea! It's like summer camp... except in winter, and with a crazy variety of merit badges you can't find anywhere else. Family Life, Architecture, Animation, Digital Technology and Textiles are a few examples--and those are just the new ones! You can also look forward to the COPE program (team-building and high ropes course) and the BSA STEM/NOVA awards! Sign up here.
