May's Campout has been cancelled

Posted by joshua.martin on May 26 2017 - 10:44am

May's Kayaking Campout Has Been Cacnelled.

The NWS is now showing severe t'storms with possible large hail, heavy rain and tornado activity on Saturday and continuing throughout the evening on Saturday and Sunday morning for southeast Oklahoma.  In addition to the weather inputs from the NWS and other news sources in Broken Bow, I called the state park at Broken Bow and got their inputs as well.  The weekend will definitely be wet with severe activity, including lightning, possible.

Given the severe weather risk, I'm cancelling the campout.

I appreciate all the work by the adults getting things organized for the trip.

At this point, with summer camp around the corner, I won't reschedule the May campout.

Enjoy the time with your family this weekend!

Mr. Joiner

Volunteers needed: Plano Rotary's Blues Festival

Posted by cstewart on May 23 2017 - 1:47am

Troop 1776's chartered organization is the Plano Rotary Club. On the 17th of June, Plano Rotary is presenting their inaugural Blues festival. The Rotarians need volunteers to help at the event, and our troop has signed up to help.

This day is the day the Summer campers return from camp. Because of this, we need everyone who didn't go to summer camp to attend this event.

Both adults and scouts are needed. Please sign up for the event here!

Adopt a Highway Service Project

Posted by joshua.martin on May 3 2017 - 3:17pm

Our Adopt-A-Highway service this spring will be on Saturday May 6th starting at 9:00 AM till 11:00 AM. This allows our scouts to earn 2 service hours while helping the City of Plano. Service hours are required for rank advancements.

We will meet in the parking lot on the NW Corner of Park Blvd. and Los Rios Blvd of eastern Plano at 9:00 AM. Please bring gloves if you have them and wear Troop T-shirts with bright colored coats. Be sure and wear clothing appropriate to the weather.  As usual I'll need a few parents to walk with us. This activity lasts about two hours.

Thanks for your support, Hank Zhao, Committee Member

Troop 1776 Uniform Closet Project

Posted by cstewart on May 2 2017 - 12:12am
Did you know the troop has a Uniform Closet? If you have uniform shirts, pants, shorts or scouting T-shirts that are too small for your scout or leader, especially if you got them from the scout closet, please donate them to the troop to redistribute. We will have a collection box at the two May meetings.
With many scouts going to summer camp and jamboree, we will open the Uniform Closet at the June 4 meeting and June 29 court of honor.  There is no charge for these items, but please limit each scout to one of each item type so more scout families can benefit from this internal troop service project.  We also accept other scouting and camping items in good shape!
Questions or need to drop off at another time?  email marcwinandy@yahoo.com
