The Dan Beard Council offers several opportunities for Friends of Scouting to join us at Special Events throughout the year. In the Spring and Summer months in the Greater Cincinnati and Northern Kentucky Area, you can “skip work” and play golf, shoot sporting clays, or drive a racing machine with Board Members and other VIP’s of the Council and support Scouting at the same time. Each of these events helps Scouting to serve on average 20,000 families in the council. There are many opportunities for you, your business, or your business colleagues to spend a day of fun.

The Dan Beard Council is working closely with all involved in our special events to put on events that will be fun while still keeping you safe. New procedures will be implemented in the areas of:

  • Food service
  • Registration
  • Hand cleaning/sanitizing stations
  • Social distancing

Get your best foursome together for the annual Golf Classic being held at one of Cincinnati’s premier clubs, Maketewah Country Club. Golfers will not only enjoy the beautiful championship course, but lunch and dinner, with several chances to win prizes! This day is the perfect outing for executives and their employees.

Dan Beard Council will celebrate the significant achievement of those who earned the rank of Eagle Scout in 2020 with a Council Eagle Court of Honor. The Eagle Scout Class of 2020 will be honored for their achievements at this exciting ceremony.

Enjoy a day of shooting 100 rounds while supporting a great organization! The outing will be held at the Sycamore Hunt Club in Loveland, Ohio. You and up to four others will get to enjoy this amazing 25-station course. Sign up today, space is limited!

Looking to have a fun day driving? We offer two exciting and unique options for you–the Southwest Ohio Pursuit law enforcement kart race and the Dan Beard 100 Kart Race! You can sponsor a team of law enforcement as they race other departments, or create your own team to race. Come out to the Motorsports Country Club to get in your need for speed!

The Motorsports Country Club of Cincinnati is the premier kart racing track located at a private country club in Batavia. Situated on 10 countryside acres, the Motorsports Country Club of Cincinnati features a professionally designed, twenty-six foot wide, .7 mile road course. Layouts include a 650 foot straightaway, where speeds can reach over 45 mph, inches from the ground! The twelve turn track utilizes multiple connections creating a variety of track configurations. Come enjoy the view and the amenities of the clubhouse.

The Good Scout Award Luncheon is attended by over 1,200 leaders from major companies in our community who gather to support local Scouting programs in Southwest Ohio and Northern Kentucky. Each year, the Good Scout Award is presented at this event to a business or individual who has made a lasting impact in our community over the years. Held each year at the Duke Energy Convention Center, this luncheon is one of Greater Cincinnati’s largest annual fundraising events and a great networking opportunity.

This is your chance to dodge, duck, dip and dive your way toward claiming the title Dodgeball Champion in Greater Cincinnati and Northern Kentucky. Form your team or sign up as an individual and go head to head against others as you battle your way to the top. Will your team be the next champions?
