Breaking News!!! We welcome Mike Hale as our Scout Executive 🎊

GGAC Welcomes . . .

Mike Hale, Golden Gate Area Council Scout Executive!

The Golden Gate Area Council's (GGAC) Scout Executive Selection Committee unanimously recommended the hiring of Mike Hale as our next Scout Executive. We are excited about the depth of Mike's professional Scouting experience and look forward to the leadership and commitment he brings to sharing the values of Scouting with the young men and women in our area.

Mike began his Scouting career as a District Executive at the Cornhusker Council in Lincoln, Nebraska. He moved on to become the Camping Director at the Northeast Illinois Council in Highland Park, Illinois. After serving as a Program Director in Mt Prospect, Illinois and the Director of Support Service in Cincinnati, Ohio, Mike returned to Lincoln as the Scout Executive before becoming an Associate Region Director with the Central Region.

Following his subsequent work in Mission Impact with the National Council, Mike served as an Area Director in the Western Region and then rejoined Highland Park as the Scout Executive. Prior to becoming our next Scout Executive, Mike served the Western Region as the Deputy Region Director and most recently as National Service Territory 3 Director, which supports 20 councils in California and Hawaii.

Mike is an Eagle Scout and a Vigil Honor member of the Order of the Arrow who enjoys camping, hiking, gardening, and bowling.

Mike and his wife Lynda have four children, all of whom have been very active in Scouting - with all of them serving 4 or more years on various camp staffs. Lynda is also an avid and active Scouter. We are pleased to announce that Mike will begin his duties on October 1st.

When you stake your claim for 2022 make sure you reserve your same site and week as this year but also plan for a second contingent to one of our other camps.

Hello fellow Scouters! Does anyone have an inflatable raingutter regatta I could borrow for next Saturday?
Looking for suggestions Used goof off to remove magic patched numbers, will more goof off loosen up the rest or is there something else that would work? Thanks In Advance
Hi Scouters! I hope to see you on Friday, May 10th at 6PM at the El Sobrante Elks lodge for our annual District Dinner! You can still pay at the door and the Elks will have the back bar open. Dinner once again is by Dave Looney and crew so you know it’ll be good! Camping is the theme this year
One of Irwin's last good turns: when I saw Helen today at the memorial, I said, "I didn't even know he had cancer." She said, "he asked me not to tell you" (because of my recent loss). He was dying of cancer and still thinking about the feelings of others. What a friend. What a Scout. I know that Irwin and Peter are together with the Great Scoutmaster of all good scouts.
