Troop Update - April 2, 2019

Post date: Apr 2, 2019 11:09:54 PM


No meeting tonight. It is spring break. Next Meeting is a Troop Meeting, Tuesday, April 9 @ Christ Church Cranbrook

SOS change in schedule - Originally when we put the SOS event on the calendar we assumed it would be in its usual spring schedule, we recently found out that the church is rescheduling the SOS week to September and will update accordingly. As such there is no SOS this weekend or next.

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.

Summer Camp - Invoices for summer camp have been sent out. Final camp payments are due.

Summer High Adventure: Whitewater Kayaking School / SEA Base

Information has been sent out. Please send an email to Eric Kravchenko if you are interested in going. Emails indicating no interest are also appreciated as this helps us plan. We need to get a final count for pricing purposes.

Information about the school is here 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.
