April 24th Troop Meeting

Published by under T16 on April 22, 2018

Hello everyone! The meeting on April 24th will be a PLC meeting.

For those of you that are new to the troop, these meetings happen on the last Tuesday of each month and only scouts with leadership positions need to attend. Therefore, you don’t have to come this week and I hope to see you all during the May 1st troop meeting.

If you attended the sand dunes campout this weekend, I hope you had a lot of fun! The next campout is Survivorman and it is less than a month away!

Don’t forget that this upcoming weekend is the April merit badge college. If you haven’t signed up yet and want to attend, remember to sign up by April 24th. If you are planning to attend, the merit badge college will start at 7:30 am.

If you have a leadership position, see you Tuesday night!

April 17th Troop Meeting

Published by under T16 on April 16, 2018

Hello everyone! Here is the meeting plan for April 17th.

First of all, flags will be done by the Howling Wolves patrol.

Then, we will continue with camp prep for the sand dunes campout. In order to prepare, come up with ideas for meals and tent partners. Besides camp prep, there will also be instruction time which will be about shelter and using a compass.

If there is extra time during the meeting, we might possibly play a game.

Lastly, if you are a first year scout, I hope you had a lot of fun during your first campout! If you signed up for the sand dunes campout, start getting excited because this is always a very fun campout!

See you all Tuesday night!

Help support Kyle Pearson’s Ronald McDonald House Eagle Project

Published by under Eagle Projects on April 11, 2018

Scouts and Adults come on out and show off your knot tying skills and help support Ronald McDonald House!!!

I will be hosting a workday, to make fleece blankets, as part of my Eagle Project on 4/14 (8:30am to 4:30pm) at PUMC.  A couple of local sewing groups have been kind enough to volunteer their time and skills to help us make 50 fleece blankets that day.    No sewing experience is needed.  There will be opportunities to learn how to sew for those that want too, but mostly we will be tying knots, which is a basic scout skill.

Lunch (pizza) will be provided and we will have a ton of fun!  Please signup at the following link (Blanket Making sign up)

Also, if you are interested in coming to Ronald McDonald House to help cook and server dinner, let me know.  Cooking Day will be April 27th starting at 4pm.

Thanks,

Kyle Pearson

Just a reminder that this week conclude the fundraising event “Pie the Leadership”.

So, bring your change and help support a great cause, Ronald McDonald House. I’m sure you have
always wanted to see a couple of our leaders wandering around with whipped cream dripping down
