2012 District Scout Expo PLUS Sports Belt Loop Pow Wow
PONY EXPRESS DISTRICT SCOUT EXPO 2012
AND BELT LOOP POW WOW 2012
HAS BEEN CANCELED.
The Pony Express District Scout Expo is a one day event on September 29, 2012 from 8 a.m. to 2 p.m. It brings together families of current or potential scouts or cub scouts from all over Pony Express District in Utah National Parks Council. The District Scout Expo features dozens of skilled scout-type events meant for challenge and fun for the whole family. The above pictures show a few of the activities we had last year.
Troops and Packs are encouraged to provide an exhibit. Click here for exhibit ideas. It may--but doesn't have to--pass off parts of required or elective achievements, but it should be an activity related with scouting and cub scouting ideals. The Troop or Pack provides and finances it's own exhibit's activities. It is suggested that the scouts and cubs serve at the booth with leaders and you set up a rotating schedule for service at the booth, so that each person has time to attend all the other booths at the event with their own family as well.
The Pony Express District Scout Expo will be held at the Saratoga Springs Stake Center located at 587 South Saratoga Road. The cost is $5 per family, which is meant to defray the costs of running it.
In addition to, and within the District Scout Expo there will be an area sectioned off for a Sports Belt Loop Pow Wow. Admission to this is $2 per cub scout. However, the boys who were at the cub camp that was evacuated because of the Dump Fire will get in for free, to make up for their lost Day Camp activities.
At the Sports Belt Loop Pow Wow cub and Webelos scouts will rotate through sports activities to earn various sports belt loops. It will be the highlight of the event for Tiger, Wolf, Bear, and Webelos scouts!
