Tuesday - June 16 "A SCOUT is KIND"

Posted on Jun 14 2015 - 1:00am

Tuesday - June 16
*We are planning Trip #3 - 15 miles for the Cycling Merit Badge in the morning: Will be sending out a text Monday to see who all is going. On this trip we will be doing some riding downtown and completing requirements that involve riding safely in certain circumstances.
*PM Meeting - Regular meeting. Scouts will be writing up bicycling trips if they have not already done so (it is a requirement to write down route and description of things they see on each ride). After that SPL will head things up.
Don't forget medical forms for camp (see last week's attachments for forms). Also, we need to plan when we can get the swimming requirement tests done for camp. Be thinking of dates you can do this.
Lastly, if we want Camp Arrowhead in August we need to get reservation in ASAP, Available dates at the moment are Aug 21-23 and Aug 28-30. I am leaning towards the first one, it will be the weekend after school starts. What do you all think?

Cycling Merit Badge Trip#1

Posted on Jun 10 2015 - 7:04am

Cycling Merit Badge
This badge requires 7 separate bicycling trips: two 10-milers, two 15-milers, two 25-milers and one 50-miler.
Ms. Angie Hunter has bicycle racing experience and has graciously agreed to be the Counselor for this badge
She and Charlean are planning to lead 2-3 trips each week until all interested scouts have completed the trip requirements for this badge.
Our first trip will be a 10-miler using the Swamp Rabbit Trail in Greenville. This trail has a dedicated bike trail and will be easy to plan trips of different lengths.
Ms. Angie has several extra bikes scouts can use along with some extra helmets. All scouts riding will be required to wear helmets. So, if you have your own bring it.
Trip #1=Meet at Charlean's house at 8:30 am Thursday, June 11
Wear shorts, closed toe tennis shoes and Class B shirt.
Also bring: Bike, HELMET, water bottle, sack lunch/snacks/drink.

Let Ms. Angie (text 864-844-0173) know if you need a bike or helmet and were not at the meeting Tuesday night.
Ms. Angie has a trailer to transport bikes so getting them there shouldn't be a problem.
Print and sign trip Permission Form that is attached or sign one upon arrival.

Tuesday, June 9. "A Scout is KIND"

Tuesday, June 9
Regular Meeting
BAD NEWS: Our rafting trip for June 12-14 has been CANCELED! Endless River had a big group come in that took all their guides and they could not accomodate us in addition. They offered to change to Friday and we would have had to go down Thursday, but when I contacted a few, that would not work and we would not have enough to get the discount. Other outfitters charged $20 or more over Endless River. So we just couldn't make it work. Then, I tried to get Camp Arrowhead for a lake outing but it was not available. So....as of now, we have no June outing.
Angie is going to be working on the Cycling Merit Badge this Tuesday in addition to what SPL has. She is also going to be talking about a possible biking trip, so be at the meeting to give your input.
REMINDER: Camp Old Indian is right around the corner and I need everyone's MEDICAL FORMS. I am attaching Parts A,B and C. You can complete A and B on your own, but part C needs to be completed by a physician. I need these as soon as you can get them to me.
