2012 Sports Belt Loop Pow Wow

Pony Express District in Utah National Parks Council is offering a Sports Belt Loop Pow Wow.  If your cub or Webelos scout enjoys earning belt loops, this is a great place to earn several in one day.  There will be many sports set up to learn the rules, practice skills, and play a game (which is the requirements for each belt loop). 

The District Sports Belt Loop Pow Wow is a separate event from, but located within the boundaries of, the District Scout Expo held on September 29, 2012 at the Saratoga Springs Stake Center located at 587 South Saratoga Road.  Admission to the Pow Wow is $2 per boys, but if they were at the cub day camp that was evacuated the admission is free.

Currently there are 28 Sports Belt Loops that are available for earning:
Archery, BB-Gun, Badminton, Baseball. Basketball, Bicycling, Bowling, Fishing, Flag Football, Golf, Gymnastics, Hiking, Hockey, Horseback Riding, Ice Skating, Kickball, Marbles, Physical Fitness, Roller Skating, Skateboarding, Snow Ski and Board Sports, Soccer, Softball, Swimming, Table Tennis, Tennis, Ultimate, and Volleyball

The actually events will be determined by the leaders teaching these classes.  We are in need of volunteer teachers.  Pony Express District will provide the equipment needed.  Archery and BB-Gun may only be taught by those who have been trained and certified by the BSA.  Currently Archery is a very real possibility, as we have several leaders trained for this event.

The teacher can choose their event, but its first-come-first-served so sign up to reserve your chosen sport to teach.  To do so, send an email to  and let us know your name, your email and preferred phone number, your Zone by name (what stake you belong to), your unit number, and three events by order of choice you'd be willing to teach.
