Troop Tribune for 04-06-17

This Week’s Meeting Theme
This weeks theme is a fire building session.  We hope to get outside if the weather holds!  We will have a backup plan should we not be able to get outside!

Next Outings
April, 2017 will be the Hopewell District Spring Camporee at Camp Friedlander and Camp Craig. Mark your calendars now for a fun event at Camp Friedlander scheduled for April 21-23.  Cost is $35/scout/scouter that attends.  The event will include Patrol skills competitions, OA Call Out and Campfire and a Movie.  Sign-ups will be at the meeting.

Court of Honor
Our Spring Court of Honor is coming up fast!  It’s the first week of May.  In order to prep the program and awards, our advancement cutoff to be included in our Court of Honor will be April 20th.  Please plan on completing all rank advancements or merit badges by then.

Backpacking Events
Our next Troop backpacking event will be April 14-15 for scouts second year and above.  This will be a great one night trip to The Red River Gorge.  We hope to camp at Hanson point and wake up to a sun rise with the fog below us in the Gorge.  Great trip for our new backpackers.  This is Easter weekend so we plan to leave the church at 12pm on Friday the 14th and return by 3pm on Saturday.  Cost will be $10 and signups will start at this week’s meeting.

For our Philmont crews, we have several upcoming hikes planned to prepare for Philmont. Please make every effort to attend as many of these prep hikes as possible. While these hikes are primarily intended to help prepare scouts and scouters attending Philmont, they are open to any scouts second year and above with the approval of Dan Clabbers, Gary Hayes, or Ben Zumkehr.  If you are attending Philmont, we need you on the trail NOW.

Adult Volunteer Recognition
Thank you for all your support and commitment to the troop.  We are growing in size, and parents and volunteers contribute so much in so many ways … big and small.  Because we know there are many things our adults do to keep the troop going, we’d like to find creative ways to show our appreciation throughout the year.  We may send a thank you note, make a comment in the Tribune, or even a personal “thanks” or pat on the back at a meeting.  There are lots of ways to say thanks.

So, this week, we’re sending out this email to you to ask if there is anyone you’d like us to recognize and thank for their help, support or just being so kind they make the meetings and campouts better!  Really, there’s no specific formula to who qualifies for a thank you, just let us know who we can thank.  Please email the comment to  We’ll send a thank you note and find good ways to show our appreciation.  Also, If you have ideas on how you think we could recognize parents, please let Ranae know at the same address as above!  Have a great day, and THANK YOU for being part of our Scout Family.
