Announcements:

Next Meeting is Tuesday, January 8'th, 7 PM @ Christ Church Cranbrook 

Given the proximity to Holidays, the PLC and Adult Committee has been canceled this upcoming Tuesday. Adults will be getting together for an adult get together at Muldoon's @ 3982 W Auburn Rd, Rochester Hills, MI 48309 at 7 PM this Tuesday. Please feel free to join us if you are an adult. 



Upcoming Calendar Events - Please check our Website for the calendar. http://www.t1005.org/  


Try Scuba Outing -  The Scuba outing has been moved to January so we can get a better rate from the Bloomfield High School Pool. There were no classes in December, so the troop would have had to pick up the entire pool rental and this was making the outing prohibitively expensive. More information about the outing and signup will go out later this week. 


FOS - Friends of Scouting. The troop has had its annual Friends of Scouting appeal. A big thanks to those who have filled out a pledge form. There are still some families that have not had a chance to complete their pledge card. Even a $0 dollar pledge helps the scouts, as it allows them to show parent participation. Please consider filling out your card even if you do not plan to pledge. 


Wreath Sales - We will have a Wreath Wrap up party January 8th. There will be prizes and pizza. 


January Caving outing - Sign up will be available later this week. This is an exiting outing where the scouts get to explore a cave in Southern Indiana. Please sign up so we have an accurate count for planning.

Exciting Campout With Pack 1014 & Pack 1709

Boy scout troop 1005 sitting and cooking on the fire.

On Friday October 12th, 2018 the scouts hit the road to camp Munhacke to have our annual recruiting outing with cub scouts that are close to crossing-over to Boy Scouts. We had Cub Scouts from Pack 1014 in Bloomfield Hills, Michigan and Pack 1709 from Troy, MI.

On Saturday everyone woke up and had a quick breakfast with an efficient clean up afterwards. Later the boy scouts explained a series of stations for the Webelos to go through, with a theme of different ways to cook in the outdoors. 

boy scouts troop 1005 Dutch oven meals.

These stations included: reflector ovens, dutch ovens, backpacking food, and cooking right on the fire. 
                                                                                                          
After the hands on stations everyone had lunch and played teamwork type games. Then they had 3 more stations witch included: more outdoor cooking, axe yard safety, and drone flying which the Webelos loved.

On Sunday morning everyone woke up, ate breakfast, and the boy scouts helped the Webelos take down tents. Everyone did their leave no trace sweep and headed home.

Scouting for Food - Mrs. Hakim had sent an email via troop track. Here is the email. Please sign up. Dress for the weather. 

Troop 1005 –

It is Scouting for Food time again.  This is the Good Turn that Scouts all over the state participate in annually – collecting food from neighborhoods to help stock local food banks for the year.  Troop 1005 has consistently delivered a truck bed full year after year. 

Bag delivery day is Saturday, November 3, starting at 9:00 a.m. until we are finished.  Usually 2-3 hours.  We will meet in the parking lot of the pool/club house in the Fox Hills Subdivision.  The first day is usually a little more labor intensive – requiring more scouts to deliver a bag to each front door of our territory.  Here is the link to sign up for the first day, Saturday, Nov. 3:  https://www.signupgenius.com/go/30E0F45A5A72BA20-scouting

Bag pick-up day is Saturday, November 10, starting again at 9:00 am until we are finished.  Usually less time; about 2 hours.   Meeting again in the parking lot of the pool/club house in the Fox Hills Subdivision.  This second day is typically much easier, but requires a few more adult drivers to follow the scouts in cars for the bags of food.  Here is the link to sign up for the second day, Saturday, Nov. 10:  https://www.signupgenius.com/go/30E0F45A5A72BA20-scouting1 

Service Hours are typically required for Rank Advancement and even some Merit Badges – This is a great way to collect a few hours!!!

Just bring yourselves – I will have the bags and maps for you.

Kayaking Outing - Newaygo, MI

posted Oct 14, 2018, 7:23 AM by Webmaster Troop 1005   [ updated Oct 14, 2018, 7:30 AM ]

    
Scouts Kayaking on River

The scouts first met up at East Hills middle school and went on a 3 ½ hour drive to the Muskegon river, got the tents ready and got a good rest before the adventure the following day.
    
First they all woke up, had breakfast cooked by the scouts and had a well and productive clean up. After some downtime the scouts and adult leaders went to Wisner Water Renting and took shuttles to the river launch.

The crew started off by just Kayaking for 4 miles on the smooth, fast river with multiple currents, but was not too difficult for scouts, said scout Nate. They all then met up at an exhilarating rope swing near a little island. After a short break and lunch the troop then kayaked for 8 miles on the very engaging river. At the end of adventure the scouts made dinner played some games and called it a night.

On Sunday morning the crew woke up and preformed the camp sweep so no trash was left behind.Next they did the traditional thorns and roses (positives and negatives about the outing)  and headed home. This outing was very exciting and really did represent what scouting truly is about.
