Mandatory Mulch Workday Sign-up, Saturday Feb 29

Posted by cstewart on Feb 24 2020 - 8:43pm
Hello Everyone!
Our annual mulch fundraiser has started. As you know, this sale funds the troop's activities for the year. The money raised from this effort means that we can avoid monthly camping fees, and our yearly dues are lower. 
We need all the help we can get! Last year the troop delivered 110 pallets of mulch. When weighed out, that's over 200,000 pounds of mulch. 
Sign-ups are open now for Mulch Delivery Day, February 29th (sign up here). This event is a mandatory troop participation day. It is more important than ever that we have full participation on both of these days. 
We need adult drivers on delivery day. If you have a truck or a trailer that you can use for mulch day, please indicate that on the sign up form. 
Thank you all very much for your attention on this topic. Together we make Troop 1776 great!

Eagle Project - Andrew R.

Posted by tmcsimov on Feb 24 2020 - 9:10am

Hello Scouts, this is your SPL, Andrew. I am conducting my Eagle Project very soon.

It is on March 21st, and possibly April 4th as a backup date. The project will take place at St. Joseph Catholic Church, at 600 S Jupiter Road.

It will involve planting and working with mulch, so make sure to wear long pants and to bring gloves to protect your hands. Please come show up to help. Lunch is provided, and you will get service hours for your work.

Thank you, and I hope to see many of you there!”

2020 March Campout - Wichita Mountains

Posted by tmcsimov on Feb 17 2020 - 6:40pm


2020 March Campout in Wichita Mountains - March 27th - 29th

There are few places that Scouts say they like more than Wichita Mountains Wildlife Refuge.  We have done multiple climbing and bouldering campouts there over the years.  We may see Bison on the trail or in our campsite.  These mountains are rough granite and provide climbing opportunities similar to what you might find at Joshua Tree National Monument or in the Alabama Hills near Lone Pine, California. 

The climbing is exciting enough yet not scary for first time climbers.  We typically will do rappelling in an area that has rock and virtually no trees.  Scouts should definitely have long pants, long sleeves (e.g. winter camp shirt), and hiking boots for the activities on this campout.  The granite is rough and skin does not do well when rubbed against it in a fall. 

The Troop owns climbing gear and has multiple certified climbing instructors that will be running the climbing activities.  Scouts do bouldering with buddies on their own.

Announcing our scoutmaster candidate: John Stoker

Posted by tmcsimov on Feb 17 2020 - 6:39pm
It is a tradition at Troop 1776 that the scoutmaster will serve for 3 years, and then hand over the position to the next trained ASM or Committee member of the troop. Our scoutmaster election process ends at the March 2020 committee meeting where we will vote for the next scoutmaster. 
I would like to announce the candidate for election to scoutmaster starting the fall of 2020. John Stoker has volunteered for the position. You can read his Bio and interview answers on the Scoutmaster election page of the troop website.
