Weekly Troop Update - 12/16/18

Post date: Dec 25, 2018 3:58:02 PM


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.

STEM opportunities

The troop may add these as formal troop activities, but scouts are always welcome to sign up on their own. More detail to come.

February 9th is the Winter STEM Olympics. Nova Award opportunities, but the big draw was the cardboard sled races.

Registration: Coming.

April 27th is Nuclear Science NOVA Day at the Fermi 2 Nuclear Power Plant. You can earn your Nova award or just take the opportunity to tour the plan.

Registration: Coming.

As always please let me know if you would like to be removed from this list

Merry Christmas and Happy New Year!!!
