This is the update that you have all been waiting for.
This is the update that is LONG overdue.
An update from the Troop Scribe.
So, it has been about a year since the last scribe made a post here. I hope to keep better track of things than my previous counterparts.
Now then, I will be updating these dates with more information as it is supplied.
So far we have,
7/30/2012 Troop Meeting
Troop Committee and Patrol Leaders Council will meet.
Scouts and their families not involved in either do not need to attend the meeting.
8/6/2012 Troop Meeting
Final plan-out for Grimes trip.
Menu planning and plans for shopping will be put together.
All Scouts planning to attend the activity should be at this meeting if possible.
We will be covering safe swim defense and safety afloat to complete those requirements and prepare for the trip.
8/10/2012 Grimes Canoe Base ~25 Miler
This is the rigorous, grueling 25 mile canoe trip that we do roughly every year. Due to flooding the old 25-mile take-out point on the river is no longer available, instead we paddle roughly 30 miles total. If you would like to go you must have joined us on one of our 7 mile expeditions down the Buffalo River, as these are much easier and we are able to train/test you and your ability to maneuver a canoe. If you have met the first requirement you can certainly join us as we joyful tread down the river, riding through light currents and paddling through the calmest water you have every seen there is also the ever important duty that involves fending off fellow boy scouts that may attempt to sabotage your craft. All in all this is a very fun scouting activity.
•As I said before, the basic requirements are that you must attend at least one 7-Miler trip.
•If you would like to come, you contact the scoutmaster (Scoutmaster[at]Troop521.org) or you can attend our Boy Scout meeting on 8/6/2012 to get your name on the list.
• We also have a some basic requirements that must be fulfilled in order for us to go:
•The weather predictions for the trip must be favorable
•There must be water in the Buffalo River
•The Universe has to be in a normal state
Other information will be supplied as time passes. . .
