2017 Broke Back Dog Challenge

Last Dog Standing


The Challenge is the one event to bring together the entire Scouting family. That’s right; everyone from Lion Cubs to Venturers are invited. Our theme this year's Challenge is "Last Dog Standing".  The Challenge is a fun way for our Scouts to show off their Scouting skills and compete for the coveted “Top Dog Patrol” trophy. We have different competitive events for Boy Scouts, Arrow of Light (formerly Webelos II), and Venturers. The Cub Scout Challenge introduces the younger Scouts to many fun and exciting events of their own and allows them to interact with Boy Scouts in a Camporee like setting not normally available to them. When camping, most Cub Scout Packs bring along siblings. For this reason, we have put together a separate program for Cub Scout siblings called the "Puppy Pound" filled with learning, fun, and excitement. It promises to be a lot of fun.

The spirit of the Challenge is one of friendly competition. Everybody wins and everybody has a great time. If someone with no knowledge of Scouting wanted out find out what “Scouting” was all about they would only have to attend one Challenge and they would understand

   REGISTRATION PROCESS

The full registration process and merchandise ordering can now be done on-line through the council website at:  www.swflcouncilbsa.org.

On-Line Registration

Registration is done on-line through the Southwest Florida Council website.  This is the same process that is used to register for other council events. 

 

In addition, STAFF will be using the same process to register whether they are coming to the event as part of their unit or on their own. If an individual is registering as staff, either camping with their unit or with the staff, they will be prompted for additional information. 

Please email questions/changes/substitutions to be made to your roster to: swflactivityreg088@gmail.com.
Additions to your roster should be made utilizing the on-line registration on the council website. Do not re-send the previous roster.

The fee for attending the Broke Back Dog Challenge is $25 per person. We must receive your registration, by November 16 in the Council office. Late registrations received after November 16 are $35 per person. Full payment must be received at the council office by November 22. No changes will be accepted after November 20, 2017.

Event Fee Policy:  The current Southwest Florida Council policy is that registrants will be charged the event fee that is in effect at the time of registration if paid by the fee cut-off date.  Payments must be received at the Council Service Center not later than the fee cut-off date.  After that date registrants will be charged the late registration event fee regardless of the date the registration took place.  Any unpaid fees may result in your unit being dropped from the activity.

Cancellation Policy: Once registration fees have been paid, an individual may become ill or otherwise be unable to attend an event. Since the event has already incurred expenses related to the activity such as program supplies, food, patches, etc., event fees are non-refundable & non-transferrable.  An exception will be made if a request is received in writing or email (not phone) and submitted to the Southwest Florida Council Service Center by the individual no less than 72 hrs. before the date of the event.  In some cases, only a partial refund can be made.  Refunds for inclement weather will be made only if the event is cancelled.  No refunds for credit card processing fees.
