New Phone System

Twin Valley Council Upgrades Phone System!  

We have a new phone system!  That’s the good news. 
We all need to adjust to different phone numbers and extensions – That’s the bad news!

Recently, the Center for Scouting updated all phones.  There are many updated features to the phones.  One such update is the ability to call the local 507-387-3123 number and be transferred to Ranger Tom at Cuyuna!  

The main phone number for the Center for Scouting will stay as 507-387-3123.

Please update your records as the direct extension line (507-387-3124) will no longer work.  New direct line numbers are:

  • Ray Brauer 507-387-0295
  • Erik Karre 507-387-0294
  • Rebecca Daul 507-387-0292

‘Trained’ Leader Designation to Require Hazardous Weather Training

Effective April 30, new direct contact leaders must complete Hazardous Weather Training to be considered position trained. And here is one story about why this is so important.

Imagine as a leader with a group of excited Scouts you arrive at a council camp for a camporee on a rainy Friday afternoon. Saturday morning is filled with the sounds of Scouts participating in the scheduled activities, only to have the weather turn blustery with sustained winds of about 30 mph and gusts up to 48 mph. The trees of the heavily forested area start swaying madly back and forth.
