July 2014 Calendar

Can you believe it's almost time to head to scout camp? I can't. So we've got some activities this month that'll get us ready to go.

JULY 8: Quartermaster Inspection. The troop, under the leadership of our quartermaster and assistant quartermaster, will inspect and clean the Scout trailer to make sure it’s equipped and ready for Scout Camp later in the month. AND Troop reorganization and patrol meetings. We’ll select a new Senior Patrol Leader and ensure each patrol has cheers, yells, and other appropriate Scout Spirit items ready for Scout Camp. We’ll also  inspect the troop flag to ensure it’s ready for camp. 

JULY 15: Fifteen Mile Bike Ride. This is our second 15-miler for the Cycling Merit Badge. Please meet at the church, with your bikes, helmets, gloves and water. We’re planning an overland route, rather than a loop as we have done in the past. Having a parent or two willing to follow along in a support vehicle would be a great help.I've planned a route that'll take us to Iona and back -- with a midway stop at my in-laws, who have promised to let us use the bathroom and get a drink of water if we're on good behavior.

This route will be a bit more of a challenge than past routes, as we do have a few hills to climb.

JULY 22: Requirements Catch-Up Day. We’ll work on Cycling and Communication merit badges, and be prepared to answer any last-minute questions about Scout Camp. 

SCOUT CAMP WEEK JULY 28-AUGUST 2: Meet at the Tiebreaker church at 10 am. We’ll load there and leave for camp at 11 am or sooner, depending on how timely Scouts arrive.
