I've heard rumors that Webelos II, having been removed/renamed in the new program, might not be part of the 2016 race. It sounds a bit like silly guesswork to me, but I'll ask anyway. Will we continue to have a Webelos II/AoL race?
Yes. Based on the current rules: 1.1 1.1 In order to race at the council championship, the youth must satisfy one of the two membership requirements. - Registered as a Cub Scout at some point since January 1st, 2016 - 5th Grade Cub Scout who bridged (joined) Boy Scouts since September 1st, 2015.
I would like to ADD an OPEN Adult, OPEN Sibling, and an OPEN Youth Scout Division after the Webelos I and Webelos II races.
By OPEN Youth Scout I mean any registered youth scout - even the ones outside of Northern Star Council. I got several inquiries from people who would like to race.
Based on numbers in the additional divisions we will set up two schedules for the 3 groups. Trophies for 1st-5th
