In addition, you will begin to see new covers on many of our other Cub Scout leader publications so that we have a unified look for the brand. New covers will start appearing for the following publications as the Supply Group needs additional inventory. Note, however, that the content remains the same - the new cover does not make the "old" version obsolete.

Cub Scout Leader How-To Book
Cub Scout Academics and Sports Program Guide
Cub Scout Ceremonies for Dens and Packs
BALOO - Basic Adult Leader Outdoor Orientation

And finally, please note that two elective sessions have been added to the agenda of the National Annual Meeting to support Cub Scouts 2010. The electives, titled "Our Future Begins With Cub Scouts" (E-119 and E-319) are scheduled Thursday afternoon, 5/27. Please share this information within your council and encourage your staff and volunteers to take advantage of the opportunity.
