True Cowgirls of the Chesapeake Bay Wild West Show
Some of the brightest stars of the Girl Scouts of Chesapeake Bay Council, Inc. are in our wonderful volunteer base. Yes, that is you! We appreciate the work you do, and know that if we intend to keep you interested, involved and functional, we need to educate you for the position you hold. At the same time, we need to inspire you to lead the girls to greatness, whatever age they may be. Fall School will help get your new year off to a great start!

Friends, fellowship, fun, and education—that is what Fall School is all about. A group of volunteers, just like you, has come together and arranged classes for the weekend. If you are one of the instructors who volunteered to teach, a heartfelt thank you! We couldn’t do it without you. If you are on the Fall School Committee, a big
“Thank you Partner” to you!

Service Unit Money Earning Activities
This year we are piloting a money earning opportunity for Service Units. The concession stands will be staffed by a Service Unit(s) and/or the Fall School Committee as a way of lending a helping hand. The concession stands will be in the Dining Hall from Friday evening, til Saturday evening and at the Program Center from Saturday morning through Saturday evening. In both locations, Sunday morning will be an optional time to sell concessions. All profits from the concession stand will benefit the group working there. Be sure to bring small bills and coins.

We look forward to evaluating the success of this opportunity. Please help support our Service Units as well as our Fall School Committee.

Think you should have been around 100 years ago?
Here is your chance to test your skills. On Saturday evening, come on out to the Rodeo, conveniently located on the tennis courts. Try your luck at rodeo events and earn valuable prize tickets. Activities include “Milk the Cow,”
“Rope the Pony,” “Galloping Horse Relay,” “Horseshoes,” and much, much more!

After counting up your massive ticket earnings, head to the Punch Bowl Fire Circle for a campfire and awards ceremony. The options continue to expand into the evening, with music, songs and dancing in the Program Center or Bingo in the Dining Hall. Don’t forget to bring your White Elephant items for BINGO!

Service Unit Challenge
Are you willing to “Ride” to the challenge?
The Fall School Committee is challenging Service Units throughout the council to outdo one another!
Prizes will be awarded in the following categories:

  • Most attendees from a Service Unit
  • Most new attendees
  • Most attendees in costume
  • Most prize tickets earned at the Rodeo

Winners will be announced at the campfire Saturday night behind Punch Bowl. Don’t miss it!

All registered adults will receive a copy of the Fall School Brochure in the mail in mid July.
