Next Meeting is a Troop Meeting, Tuesday,May 7 @ Christ Church Cranbrook. The boys will be focused on calendaring. They will take a survey about outings. It is also the deadline for advancement for the upcoming COH.
Church Closing time: The Church closes at 9 PM. Historically we have finished our meetings by 8 or 8:30. We have had a few instances where we get very close to 9 or past that time and the Church has kindly asked us to avoid those instances in the future. Please assist with this request.
Upcoming Calendar Events - Please check our Website for the calendar. http://www.t1005.org/
Summer Camp - Please let me know if you will be a part time adult in camp. We are looking for volunteers.
Summer High Adventure: Whitewater Kayaking School - last and final call.
Information has been sent out. Please send an email to Eric Kravchenko if you are interested in going.
Information about the school is here https://www.mkc.ca/ This should be a really cool trip. Siblings that are not in scouting are welcome. Cost will be from $900 to $1100 - this is for a 5 day trip so a very good value. The goal of the 5 day course is to learn to Eskimo roll, Read a whitewater rapid, learn paddling safety, technique and rescue. We will get to run rapids.
Youth Training - NYLT. Great opportunity for leadership training. Let Mr. Heverly know if you are interested.
There are six courses available throughout the summer (June 16 - August 18)
Adult Leadership Positions
With Mr. Greenwood focusing on the Assistant Scout Master role we are looking for a new treasurer. Please see Mr. Kravchenko if interested.
We are also looking for a new Committee Secretary - Mrs. Heverly will be stepping down this summer.
