e-Blast Scoutbook 2016


Scouts, Leaders and Parents,

At the annual Scout Expo, over 650 Scouters learned about the council’s newest service, Scoutbook.

Thanks to a generous partnership from Trails End Popcorn, the Alamo Area Council will be able to offer Scoutbook free of charge to all of our Packs and Troops.

If you’re not familiar with it, Scoutbook is a great new tool offered by the National Council of the BSA to help leaders, Scouts and parents stay connected. Scoutbook facilitates email and text communications, provides a communication forum, supports calendaring, reminders and RSVPs, tracks advancement, leadership, and service at all levels and much more.

Ordinarily, Scoutbook costs about $1 per Scout in your unit per year, but thanks again to Trails End, access is provided this year for free. This offering is without regard to your unit’s participation in the annual popcorn sale.

Please visit to learn more and to request your free access code.

Have fun and Happy Scouting!
