Hot! Flag Service Subscription Route Sign Up: Need Driver + 5 Scouts

Posted by tstokes on May 16 2019 - 10:26pm

Greetings!

We still need 1 adult driver and up to 5 Scouts to sign up for our Memorial Day Flag Subscription routes.  Again, if you are the parent of a new-to-our-Troop Scout, or a parent who has not participated in driving a route this year, we highly encourage you to sign up for this important Troop fundraiser (the ONLY fundraiser) event.  As a reminder, parents who drive will receive a one-time $10 Fry's grocery gift card for gas/coffee, and Scouts receive service hours that equal money that goes into their Scout accounts to be used for uniforms, camp fees, annual registration, etc.  However, and most importantly, take this opportunity to honor those who gave all...so, parents who are Veterans, I am looking at YOU...

SOME SEA BASE QUESTIONS

1.  Which adventure were we considering?   All trips are not available, because they are already full. Registration opened in January. We are a little late. We will have to take what is available. We are looking at Trips to Bahamas (need to get a passport) and trips to St. Thomas (passport recommended). We are not looking at Florida trips at this time.


2.  What dates are being considering? Because many dates are already taken, our choices are limited to what is still available. Not knowing what trip or what size crew makes it impossible to pick a date at this time. Hopefully, we will be able to make this choice at the Monday meeting. Note one of the open dates includes 4th of July.


3.  What would be the approximate cost per scout/adult? At this time, we do not know what adventure or how many people will be attending. We do know that everyone going on the trip will have to pay for air travel, at least 1 night in a hotel, taxi to and from the harbor, a couple of extra meals, spending money and the cost of the Sea Base Adventure. Other costs to consider, any personal items/equipment, camera/clothes/passport. With all of that in mind, it is impossible to say exactly how much the trip will cost, but the best estimate for total costs per participant is about $1,600 - $1,900. If you would like to see the estimated payment calendar, see Gabby at the next meeting. FYI the Troop does have camp scholarship money. I am not sure if those monies would be available for this trip or who would qualify, but it might be worth it for individuals to ask Sheila B. Sea Base also has scholarships. Check the website.


4. Can we fundraise? Yes!

Opportunity #1 You can sell camp cards, which have a bunch of discounts, including 20% off at Big 5 Sporting Goods, up to $10 off at Dick’s Sporting Goods, and much mort! For each card you sell for $10, $3.50 will go directly to your Scout account. Contact Mr. Hetrick (rjhetrick@gmail.com) and tell me how many cards you want.  An adult will need to sign for them, and you up to April 26th to sell them.

Opportunity #2 Attend Flag Fundraising Days. The next one is coming up soon. Check the website.

Opportunity #3 Do you have a good idea? Great! Let’s do it! Email it to gmyrekfamily@gmail.com


5. Do Scouts need to be a certain Rank to attend? No, but SCOUTS must  be 13 years old before the first day of the trip. No exceptions. Other requirements: All participants will need to swim around the boat unassisted (swim check) and provide a Dr. signed BSA Medical Exam.


6. When is the first payment due? We will be collecting a $50 deposit NOW through MAY 20, 2019. Once payments are made, they can not be refunded unless, the trip is canceled by the Troop or if you find another scout/adult to take your place. If you ever need a ‘replacement’, please let Gabby Gmyrek know. We will try to help you find one.

 

7. How many spots are there? We are hoping to take at least 10 boys and 2 adults. Currently, there are 8 boys interested, but unpaid and 3 adults interested but un paid. Each trip must include spots for a minimum of 2 adults.


If you have any other questions, just ask.
