True Flight award -- A red and blue on white patch. Awarded to tohse who
have received the unit service award fro continued service. Nominated by
unit committee chair.
District Family of the Year award--an engraved plaque awarded to a family
with both parents active and boys in Scouting.

Presented to continued service to the District (e.g. Cub Scout training
chair, boy scout training chair, district committee subchairs, etc.)
Trainer of the Year award--Presented by the Training chair to trainers

These awards supplement the rather meagre official awards. The highlight of
the awards banquet is, of course, the District Award of Merit presentations.
We have a large district (about 110 units) and the attendance is about 300.
