CHANGE OF DATE: Snowbowl Base Camp - March 2-4

Posted by tking on Feb 13 2018 - 4:12pm

We have had to change the dates for the upcoming Snowbowl trip to March 2-4. The scouts/adults that were previously signed up ARE STILL SIGNED UP. If you cannot make it due to the date change, please change your registration online to reflect this. Otherwise, we will assume you are still attending.

This campout is designed to complete the Snow Sports Merit Badge (download the worksheet to bring with you from the web site). Scouts will work on Snow Sports requirements at Snowbowl on Saturday. In the evening, we will finish the paperwork at Camp Navajo in the barracks.


A few more words about the 100+ Eagle Accomplishment

Posted by tking on Feb 5 2018 - 6:52am

First, be sure to read the message that Terri put out: we just hit 100 Eagles, blew past that number, and will keep on going!  That's the "why" of this message.

The Troop's Committee has been having conversations about the Troop hitting the 100 Eagle milestone since early last year, when we could see it coming.  There is a consensus that this is a BIG deal, and something very much worth celebrating.  The idea is to reach out to those 100+ Eagles, former Troop leaders, as well as our current Troop membership, and have an evening worth remembering.  We're still in the early planning stage, but I would like to share with you some thoughts and ideas that have been discussed.  Nothing here is official - when it is you'll officially hear about it!

  • A tentative date for the celebration is Saturday, December 22.  The rationale is that for many of our Eagles that have either moved away from the Valley or are in school somewhere that this is a time when they can come back and visit family.
  • We're looking at a format with a dinner and program, with the costs being covered by the Troop.
  • We have one good idea for a location (a middle school cafeteria/all purpose room) that is quite inexpensive and could hold up to several hundred, but are open to other ideas.  From what we have seen the cost at some places can easily be well over $100/hour, often with a 4 hour minimum, and some impose restrictions on who can prepare and serve the food.  A lot of places have size limits of 200 or even less.  We are just not sure how many will come at this early point, but we don't want to have to turn anyone away.
  • We know that there are some who live a good way from here and won't be able to make it whatever date we choose.  We still want to have a way to hear from all and maybe even get short videos from them that we can show on a screen as part of the event.
  • The logical sequence of events starts with a date/time and place, followed by a budget approved by the Troop Committee and then outreach to those 100 Eagles, former leaders, etc.  While that goes on and we have someone keeping track of who will be coming (and how many), others can work on the program, decorations, and food angles, plus probably some more.
  • We have been lucky to get the following Troop leaders to graciously volunteer to serve - Dr. Nguyen, Diane and Daniel Mobley, Paula Wilson.  I sorted thru a lot of my emails to find these replies, and I probably missed a few.  If so, please kindly remind me if you already told me, or tell me you'll help for the first time.  I want to get us organized into subcommitees so that no one has to feel like he or she is doing too much.  We'll need the help of a lot of people, both well ahead of the date to plan and reach out, and closer to the event as we get to very specific tasks.  YOUR HELP IS REQUESTED!
