Tuesday- April 22 Meeting

Posted on Apr 20 2014 - 3:22am

Tuesday, April 22
Regular Meeting
Work on skills with newer scouts
Plan Court of Honor for next Tuesday and practice for it. Do we want refreshments after????
UPDATE on Camporee - Not sure if it was rescheduled yet or not, have not heard if there were enough troops to make a go of it....
There was NOT enough interest shown for Troop 280 so I answered that we would not be there (we also did not have
another adult to step forward).... But we still have plenty going on also!!
OA Scouts: do not forget that Dixie is this weekend (April 25 - 27) - We need a few minutes at the meeting to plan for our trip there.
Hunting Island Kayak trip: I also need to know who all plans to drive to Hunting Island the weekend of May 16-18..
.I have to complete a Tour Permit since it is out of council area and will need vehicle information on drivers.
OA Elections, May 13 - a team from OA will be here for our OA elections, if we still have any scouts 1st class with 15 nights camping interested in it.

Tuesday, March 8 
Regular Meeting
Work on Skills for new scouts. Don't forget to let me know when you and parent goes over the pamphlet in the front of your book!!
Older scouts Meet with Charlean to review what's needed for next rank (Pack 280 is having awards and crossover, so I may be a little late)
Older scouts plan a competition game between patrols for last 15 minutes.
We could also go over compass skills and do pacing wheels for all scouts to help out those doing the Town HIke on Saturday. I will try to remember to bring some blanks along with a tape measure.
Don't forget to complete the NEW forms for health history(A and B) and from Physician (C) 
Camp Cards....how is it going?....don't forget to get permission before selling at a business!
If you have sold 35 or more camp cards don't forget to bring money in and get signed up for the weekly drawing (a scout from Troop 105 won it last week).
Camporee rescheduling....
Try to keep first weekend in May open as they are hoping to reschedule the camporee that weekend...more later.
Kayak Trip Update(May16=18) - found a camping spot!
I have contacted a private campground called Tuck in the Woods and they have 4 sites that can have 2 tents each for up to 6 people that we can have for 2 nights at $216.08. I think we can make that work. It is 12 miles above Hunting Island which will work for getting to the meeting point for the kayaking trip. Just need a confirmation on who will go, who will drive, etc. I am projecting a cost of $90 per person ($50 kayaking, $16 two nites of camping, $24 food....4 drivers pay only gas & kayak fee). We will also make a fast-food stop coming back on Sunday for lunch.
Car Wash? - anybody think of a good time to do a car wash....we might could lower the cost on kayak trip .......what do you think??
