Weekly Update 8/28

Posted on Aug 28 2015 - 3:54pm
  1. Sign-up for 9/11-9/13 Family camp at Stone Ranch now! We are planning menus and activities on Sunday since it's our last meeting before camp.  We will also have two Webelo dens joining us. Details are in the calendar event.  We do not have very many 1st/2nd year scouts signed up for Fall camping yet - this is a great opportunity to learn some camping skills in a controlled environment and parents are invited to camp or drive up for lunch and free time on Saturday 9/12.  There are MANY camping skills the new scouts will need to practice in order to have fun and advance, so don't miss out!
  2. Congratulations to Akash B. who was elected to be the new Senior Patrol Leader! Patrol Leaders were also elected and the remaining positions have been assigned based on sign-ups and abilities.  Come Sunday to confirm which leadership role you have. Scouts in leadership roles are expected to camp as often as possible.  We will also determine a date for Leadership training in September so stay tuned.
  3. We still need a few scouts to sign up to serve PMLC at Flip Flops for Flapjacks on 9/6.  It's a great service opportunity to give back to our sponsoring organization.
  4. Cycling MB is about to get started with a focus on mountain biking.  See announcement below and contact Mr. Woodard asap if interested. In honor of the MB starting, see the Philmont crew mountain biking in July on the Troop website. 
  5. Be thinking about 2016 activites for our annual Troop planning meeting in September.

Cycling Merit Badge - Respond ASAP If Interested

Posted on Aug 24 2015 - 4:05pm
Troop 416 will be offering the Cycling Merit Badge again this fall.  This will be a fun and exciting merit badge, but does take some commitment from both the Boys and Parents to complete it.  If your scout might be interested in participating, please contact Bill Woodard at bill.woodard@live.com or 214-551-7102 by September 5th.  This merit badge can substitute for Swimming as an Eagle required badge for those not interested in swimming.
