On Saturday, January 6, the 2018 Conclave will take place at Maryville High School in Maryville, Mo. The cost will be $25 if you pre-register online, but if you pay at the door it will be $30. If you have purchased a 2017-18 Mic-O-Pass, you will NOT need to pre-register. 

 

This year's Conclave will be "American Gladiator"-themed and will be a fun day for all! 

 

For 82 years, Camp Geiger has had a strong tradition of hardworking individuals who give their entire summer to have fun and work with Scouts from all over the nation. As time goes by, the lives of those volunteers change significantly, and can include falling out of touch with other Staffmen. It is for this reason, current and former Staff members have an opportunity to rekindle their friendship and fellowship by attending a wonderful event: The Camp Geiger Staff Alumni Dinner.

 

The Fifth-Annual Camp Geiger Staff Reunion is coming up on Saturday, September 30 at Camp Geiger. Dinner will be served at 5:00 p.m. in the Handicraft Corral. All current and former members of the Camp Geiger Staff are invited to this great celebration. This year's meal includes a shrimp boil, and the cost to attend is $10. Register below today!

 



Each year, the Tribe of Mic-O-Say puts on events to raise funds for the Patrick L. Newman Scholarship. That scholarship helps a select group of young men pay for their higher education fees. The 2017 Patrick L Newman Scholarship Golf Tournament will be held Saturday, September 30, 2017 at the Mozingo Golf Course in Maryville, Mo.

The outing will a four-man best-ball scramble with an 8:00 a.m. shotgun tee time. The cost of the tournament is $65.00 per player, and all players must sign up as part of a four-person team. It is not necessary to be a Scout to participate; in fact, we invite everyone’s money! Lunch at the club following the tournament is included in the fee. All tournament proceeds go to the scholarship.

Anyone who does not wish to play golf but would like to support the scholarship effort is invited to participate as a hole sponsor, at a cost of $50.


To register to play or to sign up as a hole sponsor, fill out the form below!
