Boy Scout Group Visits Amadeus Consulting in Boulder, Colorado

Posted on 14 August 2011 by Press Release

The Boy Scouts and Venturers Troop 65 visited custom software development company Amadeus Consulting on Wednesday, July 20, 2011. Troop 65 Scoutmaster Roosevelt Wright and the group, dubbed the “time travelers,” as recognized by Scouting Magazine, are taking the journey to help scouts better understand how their academic curriculum applies to future careers.

The visit from Monroe to Boulder, Colorado serves as an introduction into the technology field. Wright selected Amadeus Consulting because of its leading expertise in mobile application development; something scout leader Wright is very familiar with. He is the creator of sermonideas.com, and hired Amadeus Consulting to develop his “Soul Food” iPhone and iPad applications that allow users to utilize existing sermon data to create original sermons, on the go.

“This is a great opportunity for the Scouts to see how a leading technology company like Amadeus Consulting functions,” said Wright. “This trip will help the organization continue to live out its mission by investing in the future of technologists.”

Each year the group visits different regions of the country in order to learn more about their nation’s history while serving an educational purpose. However, the annual summer trip program is not a small investment. The Scouts raised a significant amount of money by organizing and performing an African American historical drama; a production that has been in practice for more than 23 years.

The Boy Scout troop’s visit was catered by Naked Pizza in Boulder, who donated lunch.

Colorado Rapids Partner with BSA in Centennial Celebration Event

Posted on 09 February 2010 by admin

The Colorado Rapids and the Boy Scouts of America (BSA) announced an enhanced partnership for 2010 today, highlighted by a special engagement on July 31 at Dick’s Sporting Goods Park celebrating the 100th anniversary of the Boy Scouts of America.

This announcement comes in conjunction with the Boy Scouts of America presenting the BSA’s 2009 achievements and 2010 goals during their Report to the State at the Colorado State Capitol yesterday, at which Rapids Managing Director Jeff Plush was a guest speaker.

All participating Boy Scouts in this truly unique event will arrive at Dick’s Sporting Goods Park the morning of July 31 prepared for a full day of activities, beginning with a special tour and programming in the Rocky Mountain Arsenal Wildlife Refuge and on Dick’s Sporting Goods Park’s fields complex.

Scouts will then have the opportunity to witness a Colorado Rapids home match, as they move inside the stadium to cheer on the Rapids during the club’s regular season match against FC Dallas.

Following the game, scouts will be treated to a special nationwide broadcast as the stadium’s RapidsVision joins in live to A Shining Light Across America from the Centennial Celebration Show from the 100th Anniversary National Scout Jamboree in Fort AP Hill, Virginia.

Scouts and their families will conclude the event with an overnight campout on the stadium complex.

For more information about the July 31 Boy Scout event with the Colorado Rapids, fans can call Rapids Account Executive Emily Kilcoyne at (303) 727-3540.
