A Note From the Founder - Maryland Here I Come!
by Kerry Cordy
Calling all members in Maryland, Pennsylvania or surrounding areas! Members of the NAMBA and IMPBA RC boat racing clubs are helping to write a RC boat badge. I will be traveling to Maryland June 26 - July 1 to attend the IMPBA Gas Nationals and would like to offer the opportunity for any Frontier Girls in the area to join me to learn about the RC boat hobby. The event is open to the public with June 26 as open water practice and races the 27-29th. Depending on the race schedule, which has yet to be released, I will choose a day to have the racers teach the RC badge to anyone who wishes to attend. Keep an eye out in future newsletters for more details. Free RC Boat badges will be given to anyone who attends and earns the badge at their age level. Races will be held at Fort Ritchie in Cascade, MD
June 30-July 1 I will traveling to various sites in Pennsylvania such as Gettysburg to work on more badges. I will be posting my schedule as the trip gets closer and would love to connect with as many Frontier Girls as would like to join me.
In an effort to populate our new forum with useful information we are running a contest for the next two months. This forum combines all questions for Frontier Girls and Quest as well Curiosity Untamed. Every time you ask a question or answer a question for someone else you will be entered into a drawing to win $50. If you don't see a forum category that suits your question, please email me at either email@example.com or firstname.lastname@example.org and I will be happy to add a new category.
The drawing will take place on April 1.

New Blog Up and Running
The new blog on our resource website, Curiosity Untamed, is up and running. We have not had a chance to move many of our resources over yet, but will be adding new material each week as we go forward. We encourage you to subscribe to the blog to stay informed as to what type of resources are available. With the new website, finding ideas for meeting plans, ceremonies, badge support, songs and more will be easier than ever as each resource will be allocated to specific categories. An active search bar will be available if you know exactly what you are looking for to direct you to the correct page.
A few posts have already been made such as the Puzzle Ceremony depicted to the left. While this ceremony was designed for an investiture/re-dedication ceremony it can be easily adapted for an advancement or award ceremony as well. The link to the ceremony is: http://curiosityuntamed.net/puzzle-investiture-ceremony/

Awesome Site for Working on Your WWII Badge!
If you are working on your WWII badge this interactive website allows you to click on pictures from World War II and watch them transform into how it looks today. It is fascinating to watch the beaches of Normandy on D Day slowly transform into the tranquil beach that tourists love today.
