Scoutmaster message of 5/24/16:
Please sign up for the upcoming campouts. We need to have you signed up and paid at least Two Weeks before the campout in order to properly have time to put them together.
June 17th – 19th – Carpentaria State Beach
July 17th  – July 23rd – Summer Camp
August 5th – 6th  - Backpack Trip

In Honor of the Memorial Holiday we will Not be meeting this Monday, May 30th.  Please take this time to remember all those who sacrificed so we can have the freedoms we have today. The National Cemetery off of Van Buren and the 215 freeway is looking for volunteers this Saturday, May 28th  from 8:00AM – 11:00AM to place American Flags on the graves. This is Not an organized Troop outing but I would encourage those of you who are  interested to go as a sign of respect for their sacrifice.  If you do go Please consider wearing your Scout Class “A” uniform.  When you arrive ask for directions at the information Kiosk.

We will be having our next Adams Street Cleanup on Saturday, June 4th. We need All Scouts and Adults to pitch in and help!  This is our Community Service to the City of Riverside. We will meet at 8:00AM at the parking lot of the industrial complex at the SW corner of Adams and Lincoln Ave. This should only take us about  1 – 1-1/2 hours to complete.

We have our Annual July 4th Fundraiser coming up. All proceeds go to the Troop to support the program. Each family is requested to donate two cases of soda pop and one case of water. PLEASE be sure to only purchase “Name Brand” sodas since that is what sells. Please NO diet at this time. We will be having further details at our Troop meetings.

The next Scout House cleanup will be on Saturday, July 2nd starting at 8:00AM. We need all Scouts and Adults to give whatever time they can to get the site ready for our Annual July 4th Fundraiser. We especially need mowers, weed trimmers, and blowers. We will take whatever time you can give.

We will be conducting our Annual Yearly Planning for campouts and activities on Saturday, July 2nd. We need all Scouts and Scouters to bring their ideas of things to do and places to go so we can plan another awesome year!! We will provide lunch.

We still have several Scouts and Scouters who have Not filled out new permission forms and medical forms for 2016. These forms are required to be every year per National. Information and forms can be picked up at the Troop meetings.

We are going to Camp Chewanakee for Summer Camp in July.  We need you to make your Final payments to Mr. Grace since we have had to pay out a sizable about of money.  This is a Great Summer Camp and probably one of the Best in California. It is located in the Sequoia National Park with its own fresh water lake! We also need you to get your physicals completed within the next few weeks. Time is running out.  Do not wait as these normally need to be scheduled well in advance with your Doctor.

If you have not already heard both Sports Authority and Sports Chalet are going out of business. This can be a great opportunity to pick up some camping gear cheap. Watch for their sales and visit them often if you need anything.  Sports Authority has already been running their sales for the last few weeks. I think they are both trying to shut down by the end of this month.

The Troop is in the planning stages of organizing a trip to Northern Tier in Minnesota. This is a BSA High Adventure Camp. A youth must be 14 years of age OR 13 years of age and completed the 8th grade by date of participation. We need to get commitments in order to know how many slots we need to put in for. If you are interested please sign up ASAP. A deposit is due now.

Please be sure your dues and any outstanding camping fees are paid to the treasurer. We have had several outgoing expenses lately and would appreciate your payments.

Knot of the week for the next Regular Troop meeting on June 6th   will be ?  Be Prepared!!

Thank you,
Michael McVeigh

On my honor I will do my best
To do my duty to God and my country

To keep myself physically strong,

As an American, I will do my best to -
Be clean in my outdoor manners
Be careful with fire
Be considerate in the outdoors, and
Be conservation minded.
