SR-430, Wood Badge
We are glad to see on coming applicants and interests for the up coming Wood Badge course. Within several weeks, we now have 22 confirmed participants. Majority signed participants coming from Texas and Georgia.
Our goal is to meet the least minimum requirement participant of 32. However, we are targeting 48 as the goals. So please, make your contact and get those leaders submit the application now.
Our CD, De Nguyen indicated to me that he has the approval from the National office to invite international scout leaders to take this course. However, we want to reserve a place for leaders within the BSA and provided that they submit the applicants to us as soon as possible.
We are looking for more participant from Virginnia,Penn',Washington, Florida, Southern and Northern California areas. So please continue to make your contact. The course will happen and thank all of you for the full commitment and scouting spirit.

I have spoken with John Gemmill about the information you sent us about the BSA Woodbadge Course/ Vietnamese.
We have no problem with your mailing the material directly to known Vietnamese Scouters in Canada.
As for helping to promote the training for these Scouters, if you can provide us with a copy of the mailing list, or give us an indication of where the concentrations of Vietnamese Scouting groups are, we can alert our local Council Offices and encourage them to follow up.
I hope this is helpful. If you have any further questions or suggestions please let me know.
Looking forward to seeing you in Boston,
