April 2014 Calendar

Here's the calendar for April. Given the fiasco that was March's calendar, let me say this: This one ain't changing. Campout is set, and it's not moving from that weekend.

That said, we are going to have a lot of fun this month.

As always, time is 7 pm and the location is the Tiebreaker Church unless otherwise noted.

April 1: NO SCOUTS. Enjoy your spring break.

April 8: Island Park Scout Camp meeting. This is where the Scouts and leaders will meet with the 11-year-old Scouts and others attending scout camp for the first time this summer. We'll talk about:

  • Costs
  • The fundraising auction to reduce or eliminate those costs
  • Health form requirements
  • What happens at camp
  • Uniform bank
Each patrol in Troop 125 has prepared a song or skit to help show the fun side of scout camp. We'll also have additional presentations.

April 11-12: Campout at Hells' Half Acre. Meet at the Davidsons at 5 pm. We'll hike a mile the next day through the Hell's Half Acre lava field west of Idaho Falls, and also visit a lava cave. Please bring rain gear, good shoes, and a flashlight, along with your regular stuff.

April 15 and 22: Merit Badge Scramble. See this post for more information on the scramble. The scramble itself will be at the John Adams chapel from 6-8:30 pm. We'll arrange for carpooling at the Tiebreaker Church prior to the scramble.

April 26: Dinner and service auction. 6 pm at the Tiebreaker Church. We'll enjoy a free baked potato dinner. The fundraiser part comes from bidding on services, stuff, and desserts at the silent auction. Money from the auction will go to help get boys to scout camp and high adventure (for the older boys) and for the girls to go to girls camp.

COMMERCIAL: If you have an item, service, or dessert you'd like to donate, contact Holly Whitworth  at 535-1499 or Chris Waddoups at 522-4706.

April 29: We'll begin preparations for the Cycling merit badge. We'll find out who has bikes, who needs bikes, who has bikes to lend and whether the boys want to tackle the road cycling option or the trail cycling option.
