NOTE for adult Arrowmen: BSA Chain Saw Safety Course
The BSA requires all adults who use a chain saw on Boy Scout property or at a Scouting event to complete the BSA Chain Saw Safety Course.
Since many adult Arrowmen support camp on workdays with a chain saw, we will offer this course during Fall Fellowship.
The course starts at 9:00 am and will end at 3:00 pm.
Our camp rangers, Dave Douglas and Steve Allred, will teach the course.
The course is hands-on.
If you are interested in taking the course, please indicate so on the registration form.
If you have a chain saw and safety equipment (helmet, earplugs, chaps, gloves) please bring them to the weekend.

- All participants will wear a face covering.
- We will practice social distancing.
