Troop Tribune for 07-20-17

This Week’s Meeting Theme
This week’s meeting will again be held outdoors.  Please plan appropriately for the weather (class B uniforms only/T-Shirt and shorts).  Tonight’s theme is all about water and boating safety, and information on canoes.  Since we will be outdoors, we also recommend bringing a water bottle (full).

Next Outing
This month we are canoeing/kayaking July 21-23rd.  Campout will be held at Greenacres Canoe and Kayak out of Harrison, OH and cost is $45.  Note:  To kayak or canoe in a single person vessel, you must be registered with the troop with a recent swim test (yes, we warned you!).  If you are not a swimmer and want to attend, you must be in a kayak or canoe with an adult swimmer.

Are you part of our next leadership team?
Troop elections are coming the first week of August.  Please come to that meeting if you want a troop leadership position for the next six months.  If you would like to be our next Senior Patrol Leader, please see Mr. Gormly no later than the last Thursday of this month (at the July 27th meeting).

Intro to Leadership Skills for Troops
Introduction to Leadership Skills for Troops (ILST) is the introductory leadership course for scouts. This training is for any scouts who have never attended before, which will primarily be first years. Training will be held at the church from 8:30am to 12:30pm on July 29th.

COURTESY CART DRIVERS – Western & Southern Tennis Tournament
We have been given the opportunity to work together again this summer with the HPC Youth Group in providing courtesy cart drivers for the North and East Handicap Lots during the Western & Southern Tennis Tournament here in Mason, August 12-20th.
Funds will be earned per 3-4 hour shift that will go directly to the Scout Account for the family that covers the shift (settled after the tennis tournament).  Drivers must be at least 16 years old and have a valid driver’s license.

This year signups will be through the website: . The signups will be available startingJuly 5th at 10:00 am. Please log in with your email address and the Group Passcode: heritage. You will be directed to a safety video to watch. After watching the video you can sign up for as many shifts as you would like. You will not need to watch the video again. Volunteers who sign up will receive more information at the beginning of August.
