Late June/early July Troop Schedule
Please plan on meeting at Trinity Lutheran Church at 7pm on Monday, July 1 for a regularly scheduled Troop Meeting. The main theme of the meeting will be Summer Camp planning, as this will be our last meeting before leaving for Melita. This will be a pack check for camp, if you are going, please bring your gear. We will welcome our SPL back from his week at NYLT at the meeting.
The evening of Tuesday, July 2, from 7-9pm, is an opportunity for kayak training at the Natatorium by the experts from Bighorn Wilderness. As you know, we are planning on working on boating skills this August in the Sun River and at Wadsworth Pond. I will be at the Nat on Tuesday and I encourage you to be there as well. The cost is $5, which covers your admission to the pool and your lesson. Please let me know if you will join us so that I can get a headcount to the instructor.
July 4 is the city’s independence day parade! The Boy Scouts have been asked to march the big flag (from Flag Hill) down the parade route and we need all volunteers possible to help! We will meet at Mr. Rutten’s office, 618 Park Drive South (near double g engraving off of 2nd street south) at 10:00 am. Short walk to parade route from there. Bring your troop flag. We have a trailer display set up to haul behind us. I look forward to seeing all of you–in Field (Class A) uniforms–there.
The Troop is going to Melita Island for Summer Camp this year! I hope that you are all very excited about your week at camp. Those going to Summer camp need to meet at Mr. Boyd’s house (2419 7th Ave N) at 6am on Sunday, July 7. You should have your camp gear with you as previously discussed.
Fundraisers! The Car Wash fundraiser we had planned has been rescheduled for July 20 at the Hardees on 10th Ave S. Many thanks to Mr. Adams for arranging for the location. We need volunteers to bring car wash supplies, and every boy in the Troop should participate in the car wash. These fundraisers are a great way to raise the funds for all of our planned troop activities over the course of the year; participation in them is vital.
I look forward to seeing you all on Monday!
