Popcorn: Important Dates

Posted by joshua.martin on Dec 10 2014 - 9:30am

1.  Popcorn money is due at the December 14th Court of Honor.  If you have popcorn money to turn in, please be there early.  I will be there at 2:30 to collect money.  Remember that you must fill out a form if you do anything but turn in one check made out to the Troop.  The form has been sent several times previously.  Once the Court of Honor starts, you will not be able to turn in your money until after all the post-Court of Honor activities have concluded.  So get there early.

2.  Scouts who have turned in their money can get their prizes.

3.  The drawing for the IPad will be at the Court of Honor.

4.  At the conclusion of the Court of Honor, the $1000 dollar sellers will get to throw a pie in the face of the leader of their choice.

5.  At 4:15, there will be a pizza party for $500 sellers:  Elias, Fisher, Guerra, Luo, Maples, Rodda, Wille.

Court of Honor and Dinner - Date, Time, and Location Change!

Posted by joshua.martin on Dec 5 2014 - 4:32pm

Due to conflicts with school activities we have moved the Troop Court of Honor to SUNDAY December 14th 3:00pm. To be held at our normal meeting place at the Canyon Creek gym. The troop will also have a Wood Badge beading ceremony after the COH for several of our adult leaders.  This will be a shortened COH but will still recognize all those scouts that have rank advancement and Merit Badges. The troop will also have a Wood Badge beading ceremony after the COH for several of our adult leaders.

For those who volunteered for Pot Luck, thank you for offering but because of the shortened COH we will not have the Pot Luck dinner. Thank you again for volunteering!

Following the COH and the beading ceremony there will be holiday cookies and juice provided by the troop to all in attendance.

Come Sunday the 14th at 3:00 to see your scout get his awards.

Those boys needing a scoutmaster conference or board of review should plan on attending this Sunday's meeting so those achievements can be awarded at the COH.  

All parents and Scouts are urged to attend and celebrate the achievements.

Crew 1776 - Ranger Awards

Posted by joshua.martin on Dec 2 2014 - 11:46am

Please congratulate your fellow troop members Caleb B and Tristan C on achieving the Venture "Eagle on Steroids" Ranger Award. They have worked on this award for the last four years. It required many long term activities such as Jr. Climbing Instructor (35 hrs) training, Wilderness and Remote First Aid (16 hrs), Lifesaving (20 hrs), Conservation, Wilderness Survival, Leave No Trace, Cooking and Hunting/Fishing. 

There are few scouts who stay active long enough to complete this award. This award is representative of what scouting is all about. All of the outdoor elements of scouting are required for this award.  I am extremely proud of both boys for completing this award.
