Eastern Skies District is Here you will find the latest news and information for all that is happening in the Eastern Skies District (formerly Tomahawk District). Check back often for updates, and email the webmaster with additions.
There were a lot of walk-in registrations, and there might not have been enough handouts to go around. To that end, I've set up a page that will have links to the materials.
We will be offering classes for the God and Country awards at First United Methodist Church, 300 N Galloway, Mesquite. Classes will be in the Education Building. The first class will be on Sunday, Jan. 10 starting at 2:00 p.m.. Classes will last 1-1 1/2 hour.
Students do not have to be in a scouting program to participate. Friends and siblings are welcome. Student will need $5 for the booklet, a pencil and Bible, if they have one.
E-mail Annette James at Annette James with any additional questions and to register for class. Please include the child's name and grade.
The District Pinewood Derby is February 27th at Town East Mall in front of Macy's. Registration begins at 10:00 am. The cost is $10 for Scouts and $5 for siblings. Please be on time for this event. Registration cutoff is 11:00. We have the track until noon, and cannot start the racing late.
Also, please download and have a look at the rules. Note that you must enter this year's car ( a new car), and you cannot enter a store-bought body. You must start with the block of wood that comes in a pinewood derby kit. If you need help constructing a pinewood derby, see the article on this page about the district's pinewood derby clinics.
