I had a lovely chat with Mary Jo today. It's a long shot, but I'm hopeful she and Carl and Andrew and Jo will join me and Ethan and Vilppu and Keegan and Carl and Linda and Sarah in Arizona in February.
Will be fun.
Navigation Games and OUSA Youth are building up speed. On the OUSA side:
The Scout Committee will have pretty broad scope across organizations. There was a great idea for putting on World Scout Orienteering Championships in 2019. It's on that awesome and growing new map.
JROTC/ROTC will focus on outreach between clubs and unit leaders.
We need more people for schools committee.
We have 15-20 OUSA club reps, but need the rest of them. I've asked Christy to do that recruitment. Once we have a partner in every club, we can share ideas and best practices for serving youth and families.
Ethan continues after school teaching.
We are about to launch a big recruitment effort involving Willy Wonka like Golden Tickets which become available one a week in the course of an orienteering race in nearby park.
What should the Golden Tickets buy? A party? Tuition grant? I know. CRLS orienteering gear. Designed by Ethan Childs himself.
