Steak Dinner Competition

Posted by tking on Oct 20 2018 - 1:07pm

Geezers will provide free sirloin steaks to any patrol at the Seven Spring Campout (Dec. 7-9) that can beat the Geezer’s time at a Team Building Game.  See Mr. Rideout or Mr. Ambelang to schedule a competition during a troop meeting between now and Dec. 3rd. All rules for the competition must be followed. Cutoff date for this competition is one week before the campout (which would be Dec. 3rd). Steaks provided - cooking not included!

P.S. How hard can it be to beat the Geezers?

Nov. 3rd: Baden Powell University - Life to Eagle Class

Posted by tking on Oct 18 2018 - 6:57am

This year's Baden Powell University (a Council level event) will be held on Nov. 3rd 8 AM - 5 PM at the LDS Tempe Stake Center (2707 S. College Ave. Tempe, AZ) and includes something for everyone! And, this year, our Mr. Dornic will be teaching a great class - "Life to Eagle".  The course will cover the Eagle workbook, application and board of review, and spell out some "urban myths". This would be a very valuable class to take for anyone in our troop who has not yet achieved Eagle rank.

In addition, there are many valuable classes and activities at Baden Powell.  BPU is a training extravaganza that offers informational, useful, and fun-filled classes designed to help all Scout Leaders improve all aspects of their programs. Online registration is $20 through Nov. 2nd and you can also go to a pancake breakfast ($3) and take a CPR training course ($25).

Rechartering Information

Posted by tking on Oct 15 2018 - 6:16pm

It's time again for cat herding - Troop 365 style.  We have to figure out who out of our more than 100 youth and adults will be back for 2019.

I am determined to follow what will be hopefully a low(er) stress way to get through this for 2019.  Please follow along.

  1. We're going to have only two nights where we are sitting out in the Bridge lobby doing all this - Monday October 29 and Monday November 5.  I will work to finalize everything after November 5 and will work with our COR and Pack 365 to get everything signed for turn in as soon after that date as possible, so if you are late for that date you will be at risk for missing the recharter and will need to fill out a new application.
  2. Fees are as follows:  Rechartering youth $126, rechartering adults $33, plus $10 if you need to pay OA dues or $12 for Boys Life.  We'll have your unit account balances and can handle combinations of that balance, cash and checks.  The fee has gone up (a lot) for youth because the Grand Canyon Council has added what they call an insurance fee of $63 to make up some of the revenue that they see shrinking due to a certain large segment of their membership who historically gave a disproportionately large amount to Friends of Scouting pulling away in the not too far off future.  (As an FYI they tell us that the cost to have a Grand Canyon Council, including all the camps and so forth, works out to about $175/youth).
  3. In case the fee increase presents financial hardship, please contact our Committee Chair Sheila Buchanan for confidential assistance.
  4. Rechartering adults must have the new for 2018 Youth Protection Training (YPT), which has become the only game in town since February.  There are still quite a lot of adults that need to do this.  You can get an e-certificate emailed to you and either give it to me physically or email it to me (preferred).  Either way you need to get it done before I can recharter you.
  5. All youth that turned 18 in 2000 that want to stay around (there are a lot of you!) will need to submit adult applications and proof of new YPT completion plus the $33 (or $43 if OA).  You can get an application online or you can see Mr. Oless for one.  Make sure what you submit includes the agreement for a background check.
  6. Please contact me if you have questions or need a mailing address.
  7. Again remember that I am going for lesser stress this year and I need your help!
  8. If you know you won't be back (youth or adult) for 2019, please let me know, including your reason.  (We have to submit one.)
