      QAC's First Powder Horn - Set for February and March 2002
      Quapaw Area Council will conduct its first Powder Horn course in February
      and March, 2002 to introduce Boy Scout and Venture leaders to a wide variety
      of high adventure activities. The Powder Horn program began nationally in
      2000 through regional courses, but none has been held in Arkansas.
      The course will be held on two three-day weekends, February 15-17 and March
      15-17, and participants must attend both weekends to complete the course.
      Friday sessions will begin at 8 a.m. and will require the entire day. The
      course will be held at Donald W. Reynolds Scout Training Center at Blass
      Scout Reservation. Lodging will be in the new dormitory facilities, except
      for an overnight backpacking activity the second weekend. Most meals will
      be prepared by the course staff.
      The cost of the course is $185. A non-refundable deposit of $85 will hold
      an applicant's position, although the balance of the course registration fee
      is due January 1, 2002. Registration is limited to the first 48 persons to
      sign up. Names will be placed on a waiting list once the limit is reached.
      Course pre-requisites / requirements include:
      (1) be a registered BSA adult leader;
      (2) complete "Basic Training" for Scoutmaster or Venturing Crew Advisors;
      (3) meet BSA High Adventure Class III Medical requirements (and have a
      current Class III physical). The course is a hands-on, intense,
      early-morning to late-at night program.
      Sheila Brown will serve as course director, and Gary Speed will serve as the
      program director.
      Powder Horn is an exciting training opportunity designed to present local
      resource individuals in all areas of high adventure covered by the Venture
      program's Ranger award, including: First Aid, Communications, Cooking,
      Emergency Preparedness, Land Navigation, Leave No Trace Camping, Wilderness
      Survival, Conservation, Backpacking, Cave Exploring, Cycling/Mountain
      Biking, Ecology, Equestrian, Fishing, Hunting, Lifesaving, Mountaineering,
      Outdoor Living History, Physical Fitness, Plants and Wildlife, Project COPE,
      Scuba, Shooting Sports, Watercraft, and Winter Sports. The program will
      also help leaders in working with teens and how to address issues related to
      co-ed Venture crews.
      Powder Horn can help establish a successful high adventure program for older
      Scouts and Ventures in several ways:
      * Helping scoutmasters and crew advisors to conduct outdoor
      activities that are not only fun and challenging, but safe and in accordance
      with BSA guidelines.
      * Introducing leaders to resources within the State of
      Arkansas to assist in teaching high adventure skills to youth, aged 14-21.
      * Familiarizing scoutmasters and crew advisor with the
      Ranger program so that they can assist in meeting the requirements of the
      Ranger Award.
      Registration flyers will be available at the Quapaw Area
