Jamie Leonard, A fellow scouter in Oskaloosa Iowa and David Landriam-Shrewsbury from NE Georgia introduced us to the Chief Scout Executive who then introduced us to Vijay Challa and Norbert Harasimiuk, the BSA National IT team.  We met with Vijay and Norbert Friday Jan 10th and had a highly rewarding discussion.  Thanks to everyone involved, we will not be shutting down  If you know Jamie or David, thank them for leading the charge to make this happen.  

We are making some changes.   Starting March 01,  2020, every user must have a valid BSA ID to manage events, register scouts, and update counselor pages.   BSA does background checks on all registered adults and we will follow their lead before granting access.   

Why are we doing this?
1. To provide higher security and validation of all adult users.
2. To clean up the mess we've accumulated via 15 years of poor user data entry.  

How will we do this? 
When you update your profile, you will be required to provide: Last name, first name, BSA ID, and your Date of Birth.   The website will submit this to BSA to validate your account.  BSA will return your Council, District, Unit, and the date you completed Youth Protection training.  We will periodically validate this access level with BSA and update your registration status based on the data returned.

What should you do? 
Login to and copy your BSA ID Number then update your profile on  Let others in your unit know they should do the same.  We are giving you 2.5 months advanced notice to make this work.

Sponsor Information

The Kennehoochee Amateur Radio Club of Cobb County will be holding their annual Field Day Activities at Dallas Landing Park in Acworth, GA. FieldDay is an event where amateur radio operators from around the country set up radio equipment, usually at a location other than their homes, and make as many radio contacts as they can in 24 hours simulating message handling in the event of a major disaster.

Bring your family as they can use the park's facilities (beach and swimming) while the scouts are in their class. Use of the park's facilities is free. There is a water slide but it is privately owned and has a fee.

At the end of the class, radio equipment will be set up for the scouts to talk to hams under the guidance of licensed amateur radio operators.

Families can participate in the meal and drinks by paying $5.00 per person.

The scouts will receive their meals and drinks for their registration fee. We encorage the scouts to stay hydrated because it is usually hot this time of year.

When you enter the park, please tell the gate attendant that you are there for the Ham Radio Event. Your vehicle will be admitted at no charge.
