Scoutmaster message of 5/3/16:

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.

May 20th – 22nd – Fiesta Island Campout
June 17th – 19th – Carpentaria State Beach

Our next PLC / Committee meeting will be held next Monday, May 9th. All Scouts and Adults are encouraged to attend to support the program. Please bring your Scout books so we can work on Rank Advancements once the PLC meeting is done.

Our next Scout House cleanup to take place this Saturday, May 7th starting at 8:00AM. Please bring weed trimmers and mowers. We should be able to complete this work in an couple of hours.

Our Next Court of Honor will be held on Monday, May 23rd. If you are working on any Merit Badges and want to receive them at this COH please turn in your Blue Card to Ms. Perkins by Monday, May 9th. We will be working on Rank Advancements during the upcoming Troop meting so please bring your Scout books with you and let the Scoutmaster know if you need any conferences.

Food assignments for the Court of Honor: A-M = side Dish, N-Z = Main Dish. Please bring enough to feed 8-10 people. More if you are bringing several family members.

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 payments with 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. 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.

Knot of the week for the next  regular Troop meeting on May 9th  will be the Taut Line

Our stock of soda pop is dwindling down. If any family would like to donate some soda pop or water to the Troop it would be appreciated. Please no diet sodas.

Thank you,
Michael McVeigh

A Scout is Trustworthy, Loyal, Helpful, Friendly, Courteous, Kind,
Obedient, Cheerful, Thrifty, Brave, Clean, and Reverent.
(Scout Law)

On my honor I will do my best
To do my duty to God and my country
and to obey the Scout Law;
To help other people at all times;
To keep myself physically strong,
mentally awake, and morally straight.
(Scout Oath)

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.
(Outdoor Code)

Be Prepared!
(Boy Scout Motto)

Do a Good Turn Daily!
