Friday, September 30, 2016,
Then come on out to this year’s Cub Adventure Weekend at Camp Mahonegon on the weekend of September 24, 2016. The Camp will be transformed by our staff for a weekend of fun, games and activities for the whole family!! Read this letter carefully and follow the directions to register!
A joint camporee will be held at Camp Kootaga in Walker, WV on October 21 – October 23, 2016. The Little Kanawha and Washington Districts will be hosting this joint camporee. Activities being planned for Scouts include:
This game is intended to develop the knot tying skills. It is important to know that the knots used (clove hitch, timber hitch, sheep shank) are each tied in a typical application for each knot. Additionally, you will develop the skills of coiling and throwing a rope.
To prepare for this challenge, you should practice tying the individual knots and coiling and throwing a rope. The challenge starts for a single Scout with the rope coiled ready to throw. The rope is thrown over the cross spar. If the throw misses the mark, the Scout recoils the rope and throws again. If the throw is good, he uses the end of the rope he is holding to tie a clove hitch on the stake next to where he’s standing.
Next he moves to the end of the rope that was thrown over the cross spar and uses it to tie a timber hitch around a short length of log (about 4 inches in diameter and 4 feet long). Then he ties a half hitch around one end of the log (forming a Killick Hitch).
and more in an action packed weekend while camping in our own “tent city”.
Each registered participant will receive a Camporee Patch or a year patch.
Additional patches will be available for purchase.
Cost for the weekend activities is $10 per youth and adult.

Campmaster’s Popcorn is made exclusively for sale by the Boy Scouts of America units. It’s our largest annual fundraiser that runs mid-September through November.
This annual council-wide fundraiser assists local units in raising money for summer resident or day camps, adventures, supplies, registration fees, and advancement badges. Monies raised at the council level contribute to valuable programs such as Scout Reach, a program that provides support to individuals, training volunteers to be better Scouts, and sustaining camp facilities.
Purchasing popcorn outside of a retail store (show-and-sell) or ordering popcorn (take-order), is the easiest way to help units raise money. Over 70% of all sales dollars remain here to support our Scouts at the council and the unit level.
So, do your part, get out there and SELL!! SELL!! SELL!!

Council President Howard Dewald charged Executive Vice President Steve Cogar with the mission of leading a committee to consider re-organizing our council. The Allohak Council was formed 25 years ago from the consolidation of the Central West Virginia and the Kootaga Area Councils which collectively had six districts and six district executives. That structure has existed even though the Total Available Youth (TAY) population has decreased 25% and staff has reduced from six to three district executives. The committee considered population densities and transportation corridors and a plan was proposed to the Allohak Council Executive Board which reduces the number of districts from six to four and will result in the creation of an additional district executive staff position. The re-organization plan was approved to be shared with the general Scouting community for review and comment. The Executive Board will vote on final adoption no earlier than the July 21 Executive Board Meeting.
Interested parties are encouraged to share their constructive thoughts by e-mailing Scout@Allohak.org and noting “re-districting” in the subject line or in writing to “Re-districting Committee, 1340 Juliana St., Parkersburg, WV 26101.” All comments in keeping with the Scout Oath and Law will be considered.
