Weekly Troop Update - 2/25/19

Post date: Feb 26, 2019 11:30:19 AM


Next Meeting - Troop Meeting Tuesday, February 26st, 7 PM @ Christ Church Cranbrook.

We will have a training session on Scoutbook. Mr. Heverly sent out an email about this on Sunday. We are requesting that one parent attend with their scouts so everyone can learn how to use this new tool.

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/

Kalahari Water Park - Mrs. Heverly sent an e-mail on this outing on Sunday. We need to know headcount by this Tuesday. Please send an email to Mrs. Heverly, Mr. Heverly or myself if you plan on going.

Summer Camp - Invoices for summer camp will available shortly.

Summer High Adventure: Whitewater Kayaking School / SEA Base

We need to start planning our Kayaking School trip. 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.

High Adventure Scuba Diving Trip - 2019 and/or 2020

We have an opportunity to join one of the Council's contingent crews, attending Sea Base Sunday, July 21, 2019 - July 28th. If anyone would like to attend, he/she should commit asap, as the open spots will fill up quick. If 2019 isn't an option, there are open spots for 2020 too.

If you're interested in this trip, please contact Jim Krueger.

The troop may add the STEM activities as formal troop activities, but scouts are always welcome to sign up on their own.
