Bird Study Merit Badge Class & Field Trip

Posted by tking on Dec 13 2019 - 9:11am

Troop 365 will be offering the bird study merit badge which includes one half hour class before the troop meeting on January 13th. Our field trip to the Gilbert Water Ranch Reserve will be on January 26th. In our class we will learn how to use a field guide to identify birds, how to use and care for binoculars, learn about migration and the importance of birds in our eco-system. Our field trip we will be visiting the Gilbert Water Ranch Reserve, a world renowned spot for birding. In January it will be jammed full of winter migrant’s from as far away as Alaska and northern Canada. In the past we have identified as many as 42 different species (20 are required). Lunch will be provided on this field trip and there is no trip charge for this event.  

If you wish to take this merit badge please download the work sheets from the BSA website.

On Monday, December 2, there will be a table in the lobby at the Troop meeting where rechartering will be going on.  Anyone not rechartered by then will have to re-apply to Scouting!!

The costs for Scouts will be $55 plus an optional $7 for Boys Life and an optional $10 for OA dues for those not already paid for 2020.

The cost for adults will be $21, plus the Optional $10 for OA Members owing for 2020.  Adults will also have to sign a new form (attached) that authorizes background checks at any time (the ones that were signed with the application either had old language or were good for only a certain period of time.)  Direct contact leaders (SM and ASMs), must be trained. I will examine our records to find out who this affects.

We'll be ready to take payment by cash, check, or from unit account funds.


We have to get this done fast!   If you can't attend either Monday night Dec 2 to take care of this, please send mail to me at 4934 W Tierra Buena Ln, Glendale, AZ  85306.  Don't forget the background check form for all adult leaders (anyone over 18).  Also send email to me at rjhetrick@gmail.com or text me at 602-980-2031 to let me know it is on the way/


One odd thing about this rechartering is that for this time ONLY it is for just 7 months, meaning that it registers everyone through 7/31/2020.  That is because the Grand Canyon Council is changing rechartering to match their fiscal year, which runs August 1 to July 31.  That means we will have to have a rechartering campaign in June and July for the 2020-2021 Scout year.  Then the per Scout cost will be $90 ($60 for BSA and $30 for the Troop) plus an optional $12 for Boys Life and the adult fee will be $36.  Trained status will be required for all adult positions, including Committee Member.  Also, since many took the new Youth Protection Training in various times starting early in 2018, many will need to take it again, as that certification expires after 2 years.

Our Deepest Sympathy

Posted by tking on Nov 27 2019 - 9:32am

It is with very sad hearts that we inform you that Mr. Michael Mankoski has passed away from complications of pneumonia. He served Pack 365 as Cub Master in 2007 and the Troop 365 Committee Member after his boys moved up to Boy Scouts. Even after his boys left Scouting, he continued to volunteer with Scouts. He enjoyed doing Boards of Review, camping, talking with the Boys, and the comradery of his fellow Scouters.

Services will be Friday December 6th, 2019, 11:00 am at Christ Church of the Valley CCV, Peoria, Building 400.

If you have any questions please contact Mr. Oless.
