We have 3 picnics planned. We'll meet for a BYO lunch and activities. Students will also be able to give presentations and get feedback for speeches they are working on. These are the dates. I know we're all spread out so if you have suggestions for locations, please let me know.
    June 28, Friday - 11:00am - 1:00pm  Cottonwood Park (west of Dublin and Rangewood - just south of the church)
July 23, Tuesday - 11:00am - 1:00pm
Aug 14, Wednesday - 11:00am - 1:00pm

Tentatively, we'll have a Parent Information Meeting for students, parents and anyone interested in ICC or joining our chapter. I will let you know if this changes.
August 29, 6:00 - 7:30pm at Springs Community Church (7290 Lexington Drive, 80920)

The Communicators for Christ Conference is the only area event this year - a hybrid between the spring Flood the Five Conference and the former fall CFC. This is a training-packed event for coaches (AKA parents) and students. Please save the date and plan to attend. It will be in the Denver area but we are still looking for a facility. (Please be praying the Lord will lead us to an available facility willing to partner with us.) Host housing will be available to reduce travel costs. 
Here is the new schedule:
Friday, Sept 13, 9am - 3pm YSG chapter members (11+yrs)  ($175 EB/$215 STD) and coaches ($175 EB/$215 STD)
Friday, Sept 13, 4pm - 9pm YSG, BPS (6-10yrs), parents, guests and educators - that means everyone! (11+yrs $135 EB/$165 STD) (BPS one day option $35 - no EB)
Saturday, Sept 14, 9am - 3pm EVERYONE. (BPS 2-day option $70 EB/$85 STD)
Coach tuition of $175 EB/$215 STD is waived if they are accompanied by a student. CEU credits are available to educators for this training.
Apprentices, Student Instructors, Student Leaders, Sponsors and Asst Sponsors have unique tuition based on chapter discounts and training.
Scholarships and fundraising opportunities are available. 
This event is going to provide training which will strengthen our members more than any area event we've been able to provide before. There is so much your students will experience here that is unavailable during a chapter meeting. You will be amazed at the change in them when they come home. You will be amazed at your own growth when you attend the coaches sessions. Make it a priority for your family. I can't recommend this training highly enough. This is training they will be able to use for the rest of their lives - wherever the Lord may lead them.

Because of the CFC conference, our first chapter meeting will be September 19, 4:30-6:30pm
