Scout Sunday

Sean Warner —  February 2, 2017 — Leave a comment

 

Folks,

Our annual Scout Sunday is scheduled for Feb, 12th.  We will support two services (9am and 1030am) and will need at least 6 scouts for each service. We need one older scout to read scripture and 2 adults to help serve cake.

The Scouts will provide:

  • Greeters
  • Ushers
  • Scripture Readers (older scout)

Our church lets us use its building and all it facilities for free. This is how we give back! This will count as volunteer hours towards rank advancement!!!

 

Please sign up on SignUpGenious at  www.SignUpGenius.com/go/20F054BACA929A4FC1-scout

Thanks,

Sean

 

Troop,

 

Just a reminder that our monthly outing with the Troop is the Snow Sports Merit Badge with the Council on Feb 4th.  The bus will leave at 630am sharp so please arrive around 6 to help make the departure smooth.

Remember when you signed up on the council web site (https://www.pikespeakbsa.org/snowtours2017) there were different options…One was the transporation and lunch ($20), if you wanted to do the snow sports merit badge for skiing or snowboarding then that was an additional ($10), If you wanted your scout to rental equipment on the mountain then it was an additional $30, and lift tickets were:

  • Lift ticket ages 16+ – $69
  • Lift ticket ages 13-15 –  $47
  • Lift ticket ages 12and under- $29

The troop is not collecting money for this….you must sign up and pay at the link provided above.

Finally, I encourage all scouts to attend if you can. Skiing has become a rich person’s sport in Colorado ($190 for a one day lift ticket at Vail) and this is the cheapest opportunity to give it a shot.  However, if you do not know how to ski and this is your first time then just plan on coming up and having a good day…do not sign up for the merit badge. The merit badge is testing your scout on skills and they would not be able to do those on their first time on the mountain. If you want to check out the standards the look at this link: https://meritbadge.org/wiki/index.php/Snow_Sports Cool?

Looking forward to Saturday!

 

Sean

 

Scouts,

Its time to start wrapping up some of these merit badges and rank advances. This will be the focus of our next two meetings. In the last 6 months we have started Family Life, Personal Management, Climbing and Hiking, Cooking and will do Snow Sports this weekend. Some are still working on their Coin Collecting as well. I have only received ONE completed Blue Card from the entire troop over this period.  Please finish your worksheets and have your Merit Badge Counselors sign off on your Blue Cards.  If you don’t have a blue card show your worksheet and we will try to fill out blue cards on Tuesday.  PLEASE complete the worksheet and get these done so you can get credit at the next Court of Honor on Feb 21st.

Also, please prepare and complete a Scout Master Conference if you are ready for promotion.  The study cards are on this website. Please know the knowledge and all the skill for your desired rank and all the ranks leading up to it.

ASM, Please come to these next two meetings and be prepared to help with Merit Badges and SMCs. I will need the extra help to get it all done!

Every scout needs to bring their Handbooks, Merit Badge Work Sheets and Binders to the next meeting. BRING ALL YOUR STUFF!!! EVERYTHING YOU HAVE BEEN WORKIN ON! You earned, lets finish it up so it can be awarded to you.

 

See everyone Tuesday at 7pm

Thanks

Sean

(Lance and I are Crested Butte)

Hey Troop,

Here are some reminder’s for this month:

  • Summer Camp – January payment is due by the end of the month.The next payment is $87.50.
  • Please remember if you are going on the ski strip to register and pay on the council’s site located here: https://www.pikespeakbsa.org/snowtours2017.  The troop is not collecting the money nor signing scouts up Su.  Also, please ensure that you have taken care of ski/snowboard rentals if needed.

Thanks
Sean

 

Scouts and Parents,

I was completely smoked after this Merit Badge and Equipment Refit but we got some good stuff accomplished.  We are about 80% done with the merit badge and we completely cleaned up the Barn in addition to using our new car camping equipment.  The only requirements left for the scouts to complete their merit badge is to cook on a hiking or backpacking trip and to COMPLETE their Merit Badge Worksheet! The worksheet can be found at this link http://usscouts.org/mb/worksheets/Cooking.pdf

PLEASE have your scouts complete the worksheet and bring it to one of the ASM’s or myself for signature.  You’re scout did the work and he deserves the credit for completing it.

Here are some photos of the event!

Thanks

Sean

Troop 287,

Just a reminder that the second part of our Climbing Merit Badge this this Tuesday at CityRock from 630-830pm.  Your scout must attend both nights to meet the requirements for the Merit Badge. Please remind your scouts to also download and complete the Worksheet to complete the Merit Badge. The Merit Badge Worksheet can be found here http://www.meritbadge.org/wiki/images/e/e3/Climbing.pdf

One note, last week they handed out climbing shoes to the scouts. Normally those shoes cost $5 to rent but I talked him out of charging us because that is not what we agree to. This week, if your scout chooses to rent shoes it will cost $5.

Also, here are some great pics of last week that Floyd, Ryan and I took.

Sean

Troop 287,

I receive a few questions to I just want to be clear. The scouts will cook 5 meals ( Dinner, Breakfast, Lunch, Dinner, plus one additional meal) and one dessert on this lock in. Two of these meals will be cooked outside on our camp stoves. Once of these meals must me cooked in a Dutch oven OR a foil pack OR kabobs. The rest will be cooked inside the church.

Also, while I would like the worksheet as complete as possible, the most important thing is that the scouts bring the food items needed to support their merit badge for the above cooking requirements.

Right now, I am tracking 3 adult leaders (Me, Tom and Ryan) staying the night and 6 scouts.  It would be nice to have more

Finally, scouts can bring their video game console or board games to play at night

Thank you,

Sean

just a reminder that we are meetin at CityRock tonight and not at the church. Only those that are doing the climbing merit badge need to come since all we will be doing is the climbing merit badge.

CityRock is located at 21 N Nevada Ave, Colorado Springs, CO 80903

please arrive at 630pm

 

Scouts,

Here is an opportunity to earn an Eagle Required Merit Badge. We are going to start (and try our best to come as close to finishing as possible with everything expect the backpacking portion) the Cooking Merit Badge while we do Equipment refit at a Church Lock in this weekend.

We will arrive at the church on Friday at 5pm and cook and prepare equipment until Saturday night around 5pm.  It will just be a one night event.  We will have some new cook boxes to put together with new stoves and some other essential items that will be really useful for car camping trips.

I will need two adults in addition to myself to help run this merit badge.

If you do not want to work on your cooking merit badge, you are still welcome to attend the lock-in and help with the equipment and help the other with their merit badges (basically…help eat their food 🙂

I’ve attached the cooking merit badge worksheet to this post. PLEASE print and fill out as much as you can BEFORE arriving at the church.  We will be limited on time so the more work you have done ahead of time, the better.  Scout should have requirements 1(1-4), 2 (1-5), 3 (1-3), 4(1-2), 5(1-3),6(1-3) and 7 competed in their worksheet before arriving.  Some of those say to “discuss with a counselor” since you will already have it written, you will be able to discuss it at the church.

Cooking Merit Badge Worksheet

At the church we will accomplish requirements 4 (3-5) and 5 (4-8). This is listed below.  

Requirement 4(3): Using at least five of the 10 cooking methods from requirement 3, prepare and serve yourself and at least one adult (parent, family member, guardian, or other responsible adult) one breakfast, one lunch, one dinner, and one dessert from the meals you planned.*

Requirement 5(4,5):

3. In the outdoors, using your menu plan for this requirement, cook two of the five meals you planned using either a lightweight stove or a low-impact fire. Use a different cooking method from requirement 3 for each meal. You must also cook a third meal using either a Dutch oven OR a foil pack OR kabobs. Serve all of these meals to your patrol or a group of youth.*

4. In the outdoors, prepare a dessert OR a snack and serve it to your patrol or a group of youth.**

For requirements asking to share…only bring enough to share in one or two people…not the entire troop…we will have way too much food!

The only cost of this event is the cost of the food you will need to bring and cook to for the the merit badge.  So that cost may vary depending on what you bring. EACH SCOUT WILL BE RESPONSIBLE FOR THIER OWN FOOD.  Now, you have to read the requirements listed below to determine what to bring.  For example, a scout that brings 4 packs of Ramon probably won’t earn the merit badge 🙂

Packing List:

  • Food to accomplish requirements 4 (3) and 5 (4,5) be creative
  • Any special consumable items required to cook your meals….aluminum foil, condiments, etc.
  • Storage containers to bring any uneaten food home that you might have cooked
  • Sleeping Bag
  • Sleeping Pad
  • Toothbush and toothpaste or any other personal hygiene items
  • Clothes to keep you warm when cooking outside
  • Mess kits and utensils

The troop will provide, The stoves and cookware available in the church, camping stoves and fire material for cooking outside.

Troop 287,

Here is another fun opportunity to get into the mountains and experience something awesome that Colorado has to offer!! Skiing and Snowboarding!!!

Pikes Peak Council set up a bus ride and are running the Snow Sports Merit Badge. How perfect is that because we were planning on going up this month anyway. This we we don’t need parents to drive and we will save a lot of $$!

The cost is $20 which cover’s transportation to Monarch and Lunch (Try even getting lunch on the mountain for that price on your own..)

This is the cost for lift tickets…

Monarch – Feb 4th

  • Lift ticket ages 16+ – $69
  • Lift ticket ages 13-15 –  $47
  • Lift ticket ages 12 and under- $29
  • Rental (Ski or Snowboard)- $30

Now, if you already have a season pass and/own your own equipment then you only have to pay the $20 to get up there.

Also, some other ways to save a little money might be to rent equipment here in the springs and if you are military then you might be able to get a deal at one of the Outdoor Recreation store on the military bases.

Please sign up here on SignUpGenius so I can track who is going but you MUST also go to the council site located at this link https://www.pikespeakbsa.org/snowtours2017 and sign your scout up there.  In this case Troop 287 will not collect the money. You will pay online directly to the council.  Make sure you select the Monarch Trip on Feb 4th.

Here is the SignUpGenius Link www.SignUpGenius.com/go/20F054BACA929A4FC1-monarch
