Meeting at the Dormont Pool!!!

Posted by jaypullen on Aug 10 2016 - 11:02am

We are hitting the dog days of summer.  Last week we had a very light turnout, due in part because a lot of our families are on vacation, or it's just too dog gone hot in our meeting room!

Let's meet this week at the Dormont pool.  After 6pm, the cost is $2.50, and they are open until 8pm.  So wear your swimsuit and bring your towel.  This won't be an organized meeting, let's just get together and cool off!!!

Beaumont Feedback and next year's IDEAS

Posted by jaypullen on Jul 26 2016 - 11:50am
  • PLC meets at 6:30.  We will recap summer camp and prep for getting input on next year’s activities.
  • This Saturday's annual planning meeting will be postponed.  We need to get everyone's input before we start filling in the calendar.
  • Signups for the one day kayak trip down the Youghiogheny are being extended to Thursday.  This is a fun, one day, easy float down the Yough and a great way to spend a hot summer day.  The trip is on Saturday, Aug 13 and will cost $24 per person.  Siblings and parents are welcome.
  • The parent meeting to discuss volunteer opportunities within the troop is being pushed to next week, 8/4.  Please think about the talents you have and would be able to share with the troop.
  • Scouts, at this meeting we’ll be recapping our trip to Beaumont and decide whether we want to return next year.  We’ll also start listing ideas for next year’s outings, so think about what activities you want to do when we camp next year.  Each patrol will make a list to give to their patrol leader and the PLC will come up with a schedule of events for next year.  USE YOUR IMAGINATION!!!!

Meeting canceled / signup for canoe trip

Several of our leaders, including me, will either be out of town or have prior commitments tomorrow,  so we will need to cancel this week's troop meeting.  Please make sure everyone in your patrols get this message.

Here is our loose agenda:

  • We'll meet in the Howe parking lot (church will be in service) at 9am on Sunday; Load bikes onto the bike trailer, and load personal gear into the various cars, and troop trailer that is going.
  • Pack a sack lunch!  We'll stop prior to getting to camp to eat at a rest stop.
  • At this Thursday's meeting we'll load the trailer, finish up filling out blue cards, this would also be the time to pay any outstanding balance you may have on your ISA.
  • There is a committee meeting tonight where we are hoping to nail down the plan for transporting bikes as well as determine how many drivers we will need as well as gear transporters.
