Ka'ala district will be hosting a BALOO training on May 21st from 12-4 pm at the cafeteria of Kanoelani Elementary School. The cost is $15, and registration is online.
- Also on May 21, we have unit advancement training! If you're your unit's advancement chair or part of the committee, this will be your chance to get information on Internet advancement, how to conduct a board of review, and what's in the Guide to Advancement. This will last from 9 to noon, right before BALOO, but it's at President's Hall here at the service center. Details and registration are here.

Finally, Boy Scout troops--I have an event for you this month--I'd like to invite you to a camporee on May 20-22 at Camp Palehua. This camporee is hosted by Ko Olina district and open to all west side units. Patrols will compete on Saturday in Fire Building, Knot Tying, Navigation, First Aid, Emergency Shelter, and Signaling. We'll also have a campfire program on Saturday night, as well as optional activities: a swimming pool, hikes around the area, and (for a small extra fee) a ropes course to challenge your patrol!
This is going to be one of the best camporees of the year, at a stunning location--Camp Palehua, high in the mountains above Makakilo. Check out the pictures to see for yourself. If you can join us, the cost is only $20 for Scouts and $10 for leaders. Registration is right here.
