Last Call for Camp Wehinahpay

Posted on Apr 17 2015 - 7:33am

Broken Bow Campout

Posted on Apr 17 2015 - 7:33am
The Broken Bow trip is coming up in May.  If you plan to canoe, a BSA swim check is required.  If you have successfully completed a BSA swim test within 12 months from the date of the trip you are not required to retake the test (you are good for one year from the date of the test).  So if you successfully completed this at summer camp, say July of 2014 you are still good. 
 
Important: The Aquatic Center is closed this Saturday so we will not be able to have our swim test.  We have two other dates scheduled for our troop, Saturdays April 25th and May 2nd with times TBD.
 
Swim checks will be conducted at:
WESTSIDE AQUATIC CENTER,1750 DUNCAN LN.,LEWISVILLE, TX 75067,214-222-6940
 
The cost is $2 for youth and $3 for adults.  Newer Scouts, make sure you bring your book.

Camp card sales

Posted on Apr 17 2015 - 7:32am

We have the next 2 weekend options left at IHOP.  Sign up by clicking here. All money for individual cards is due 4/27.  Mrs. D’Addio will be at the next 2 Monday meetings to collect it.  In the interest of time (we need to count the money and unsold cards together), please consider consolidating the bills to as few as possible, or writing a check to Troop 265, and keeping the cash for yourself.  If you are unable to make either of the meetings, please contact her  to set up a time to drop it off.

As discussed in the committee meeting, we are also going to sell first aid kits at the same time.  These kits have several options - there are 6 “zip kits” for auto, home, pet, sports, outdoor and ow-wee, selling for $12, and a soft pack, selling for $25.  YOUR SCOUT WILL GET 50% OF THE SALE INTO HIS SCOUT ACCOUNT!  That is $2.50/camp cards, $6/zip pack, and $12.50/soft pack.  At this point, we are not sure if we are combining the sales of the two - it depends on interest.  Very few spots are signed up for this weekend.  We are hoping to get a minimum of 4 boys, 2 selling each product (camp cards, first aid kits).  There are only 3 slots available for sign-up - if you would like to sell, please contact both John Hannegan and I by email, so we can coordinate.  (a_daddio@mac.com ,hannegan6@verizon.net,). If you are interested in your son selling the kits door to door, you can contact John Hannegan at 214 505 6700, or the above email.

Bartle Summer Camp

Posted on Apr 8 2015 - 10:14pm

We now have our dates and camp assigned.  We did not get all our first choices, but we did get one important one- we will be at Camp LoneStar in 2015!  Within Lonestar we are assigned to the Kick-a-poo site.

The biggest change is the date.  We have been assigned Session 4 - July 6th-16th, and we will be leaving on July 5th.  One great thing about getting 4th session is that it should not conflict with Summer Band Camp, which has been an issue for many in years past with Session 5.

Please let me know if the new date is a problem, hopefully it won't be.  Also, if you have not already signed up on the website, please do so.  We only have so many spots and they are going quickly.

 Register here.

Lastly, please make certain that you have the $50 deposit in your Scout account.  Our next payment date will be in February (1/2 down).

NOAC 2015

Posted on Apr 8 2015 - 10:13pm

ALL ARROWMEN,

The lodge has just released the following info about NOAC 2015:
NOAC, the National Order of the Arrow Conference, will take place August 3-8, 2015 (August 2-9 with travel), at Michigan State University. It is a time where Arrowmen from all around the United States gather to participate in many activities including high adventure skills, leadership classes, Native American crafts, sports, patch trading, and various special events and competitions. This NOAC will be a very unique experience as 2015 is the 100 th Anniversary of the OA. Due to the significance of this event, all those attending will receive a special edition red sash not available to anyone except those attending NOAC. However, space is extremely limited as there is a record number of people attending. The Lodge has 93 contingent slots available so anyone who wishes to attend must submit an application. The youth and adults will be selected from among the applicants, giving priority to youth as there is a limit of one adult per three youth. The applications are available on the Lodge webpageor by clicking here for the Youth Applicationor clicking here for the Adult Application. The application with a deposit of $100 is due by November 31, 2014, and can be mailed to or turned in at the Longhorn Council Office. The total cost will be between $600 and $700 depending on the final price of included transportation.
 
I would like you all to consider to go to this once in a lifetime event. I know that there are fundraisers the troop is doing in the following months that could also help offset this cost (that includes everything). If you have any questions feel free to contact me at Freddie.kruger1@icloud.com or you can contact the OA officers on the website. This is the perfect opportunity to experience an Order of the arrow event on the national level and gain new relationships and experiences.

Philmont Trek 2016

Posted on Apr 8 2015 - 10:13pm

Our Troop has secured 3 Treks at the Philmont Scout Ranch for the Summer of 2016.  We have our dates!  June 28th- July 10th- 2016.

Those that have signed up, please verify that these dates will work for you.  We will begin to form the crews, so that they may begin hiking together to prepare for the trek.  If you need to be removed from the list, please contact Mr. Kidwell by email.

This is a High Aventure Camp, and requires that the Scouts be at least 14 years of age before departure.  It is a 12 day event, and a trip that will be remembered for rest of your life.

We need to gauge the interest, and begin to develop a list of boys that want to go.  Signing up at this time is only a preliminary committment, and will get you on the list.

The fees for this trek are $870 per person.  We have some time before all the money is due, but the Troop does have to send a deposit this month to secure our spots. 

This is a fee that can be paid over time, but must be paid in full before the event.

Sign up here if you are interested.
