Canoe Trip Postponed

Posted on Apr 26 2016 - 3:39pm

Canoe Trip Moved to June

Due to the level of the river, the high flow rate on the river and the forecast for more rain to fall by this Saturday, the troop leaders have decided to postpone the canoe trip on the Mountain Fork River.

If may sound crazy to postpone a water event due to more water, so let's explain. The "flow rate" of the river determines the level of difficulty for that river. The current flow rate is 4 times the rate considered right for novice canoeists. 

In addition, the forecast is for an additional 4-6" of rain between now and Sunday. Not only will this add to the amount water requiring release from the dam, but could also pose a flash flood threat to the camp grounds and roads to/from the camp.

We will look to reschedule this event some time in June. Check the troop calendar later this week for the rescheduled date/time.

Master of Ceremonies for COH

Are you working on the Communications merit badge. One of the requirements is to host a Court of Honor (COH) as the master of ceremony or emcee. On Sunday, May 15th we will hold our spring COH to award all ranks, merit badges and awards earned since last fall.

The role of emcee is easy, fun and provides a great service to your troop. If you would like to serve as emcee for the upcoming COH please contact Mr. Brummer.

CPR Class for Parents/Siblings

Want CPR Training? Last Call

The troop conducted a very successful CPR/AED training a while back where we trained over 40 Scouts and adults. As this is such an important skill to have, troop leaders wanted to see if the parents and siblings of our Scouts would be interested in taking such a class.

Please take this brief survey to let us know if you'd be interested. If there is enough interest we will set up a training session for a future date.

Weather Merit Badge

Posted on Apr 5 2016 - 7:34am

Learn About the Weather

If you attended the troop meeting on 4/4/16, you got a chance to learn about the upcoming Weather MB classes.

What is the difference between a Tornado Watch and a Tornado Warning? What do those scary looking clouds mean? Are they a real threat or just harmless clouds? When do you take cover during a severe thunderstorm? Where is the best place to take cover? 

Learning to read the sky and understand the weather is not as hard as you might think. During the months of April and May, your PLC has planned to go over several requirements for the Weather merit badge. To review the presentation from the April 4th meeting and to download the Weather MB study guide, go here.
