Info for Sign, Signals, and Codes Merit Badge Class/Boy Scout Supernova Awards

Posted by tking on Jul 30 2016 - 10:33am

Dr. Nguyen will offer the Sign, Signals and Codes Merit Badge in August . It is a very difficult merit badge since it involves Morse Code, Semaphore and Sign language so therefore he will only offer this to the scouts who have passed the Morse Code Merit Badge Class.  If scouts are interested, please contact Dr. Nguyen directly for details ASAP.

Dr. Nguyen is also a Boy Scout Supernova counselor for the district. If you are interested in this award program, contact Dr. Nguyen for information.

Sep. 2-5: Lockett Meadow Base Camp

Posted by tking on Jul 22 2016 - 4:10pm

This year’s Labor Day outing has been changed to a base camp (all scouts invited) near Locket Meadow on the slopes of Mt. Humphreys. This outing will include a climb to the summit of Mt. Humphreys (elevation 12,633 feet) from Locket Meadows (elevation 8,600 feet) - a 16 mile round trip with a 4,000 foot elevation gain.  This hike is for scouts 14 yrs. old and above or with scoutmaster permission. This will also serve as a qualifying hike for the Grand Canyon Rim to Rim in October.   Alternately, there will be a shorter hike to the Inner Basin for younger scouts and those who would prefer a less strenuous hike.  On Sunday, we will take a tour of the Sunset Crater National Monument and the nearby Indian ruins.    

We will be camping in the same camp area as June 2015, which is a great place for a basecamp and camp fires should be no problems at this time of the year.  The area around is a great place to practice orienteering and scouting games.  We will pack up early on Monday morning and try to be on the road by 11:00 am with a stop for lunch in Camp Verde.  There will be 2 evening camp fires. Each patrol should be prepared with skits, songs or a game, there will be a church service on Sunday morning.

Adults please note number of seat belts in vehicle (including your own) or indicate if a non-driver.

Sep. 23-25: Geezer Retreat

Posted by tking on Jul 19 2016 - 8:52am

Attention All Adults: Our annual Geezer Retreat Campout is the weekend of September 23-25. The purpose of the Geezer Retreat is to discuss the upcoming year of scouting and to do the logistical planning for the outings and activities that the scouts put together on their calendar at the PLC Retreat in August. All adults are welcome at the campout! Boys/other children do not attend this one. 

If you cannot attend the Geezer Retreat, please look over the draft calendar when it is available and e-mail Mr. Rideout or Mrs. Buchanan any outings or duties you would like to volunteer for in the upcoming calendar year. This campout is also a good way to learn about the volunteer opportunities available in your troop.

Besides work, we also usually take a hike on Saturday and have a Frisbee golf tournament so bring your best Frisbee. The participants will split the cost of food and the cleaning and cooking duties.  In the past, adults have also brought other snacks to share during the meeting times as well. Bring enough water/drinks/snacks for the weekend, a tent, a cot or sleeping mat, sleeping bag, and personal items.  (Don’t forget that Frisbee, 1st prize is bragging rights.)

Our camp location is TBD by Mr. Rideout soon.  This is a non BSA event and food and driving are split up among the adults going.  We bring the troop trailer up for cooking and camping supplies.

Sign up online as soon possible, and if you have questions, contact Mr. Rideout.


Update Your Troop Information

Posted by tking on Jul 17 2016 - 9:01am

Scouts and Adults: While we are on break, please take a few minutes to check your address and phone numbers on the troop web site. Click on the Troop Roster link and find your name. Check your address, home phone, cell phone, and email address. A lot of times, scouts do not have their cell phones or email addresses listed because we do not collect that information on their scout application. However, this information is useful so that scouts themselves are receiving eblasts and are able to connect with other scouts in the troop directly. If you need to change or add contact information, please send an email to Mrs. King with all information to correct/add. DO NOT use the edit button on the web site to enter the information yourself. Because we import this information from a separate database periodically, your edits will be erased the next time we import that database. So just send an email to Mrs. King with the  updated information. 

Adults: We like to keep a copy of your Youth Protection Training certificate on file on the web site because it's the quickest/easiet way to check to ensure everyone is current. Please check to see that a current copy of your YPT certificate is on file here. YPT certificates are located under the FILES link under  the menu. Click FILES. Then scroll down and click Youth Protection Training Certificates. You will see a list in alphabetical order by last name. If not on file, please send a copy of it to Mrs. King as well.

October 2016 Rim to Rim Info

Posted by tking on Apr 8 2016 - 9:03am

Mrs. Buchanan has begun to plan for the next Rim to Rim trip scheduled October 8-10, 2016. Unfortunately all the hotels at the South Rim are booked this year already! She has reserved 6 hotel rooms in Tusayan which we have done in the past when this occurs. Because we want to ensure we will have enough rooms, we need to know your intentions to attend Rim to Rim as soon as possible.

As always, we need adults to either hike or be drivers. Drivers will camp at the North Rim with the hikers Saturday and after the hikers depart for the South Rim, drivers will pack up camp and drive all the vehicles to the South Rim and meet the hikers on that end late Sunday. We will either sleep in the hotel at Tusayan or optionally, some can choose to camp at the South Rim Sunday evening.

Sign up online now and indicate in the NOTES if you are:

  • Indicate if hiking/driving (for adults obviously - all scouts are hiking)
  • Vehicle belts INCLUDING DRIVER BELT if driving own vehicle (adults may still volunteer to be a driver and drive someone else's vehicle if we need)
  • Indicate if you want a hotel room or prefer camping at the South Rim Sunday evening (both scouts and adults need to do this)
