How about this Fall weather?!!! Definitely feels like camping weather! And speaking of camping, the deadline to sign up for the Score-O campout October 14 thru 16 is coming up fast. Troop 250 has historically done VERY well at this competition, and I expect this year to be no different. The deadline to sign up is midnight this coming Saturday, October 1. The fee for Score-O is $16, food is $20, so the total will be $36 total per person. As always, each Scout will need to bring a a signed Permission slip. The forms are available under the Documents tab on the Troop website.
At our Troop meeting tonight, we will be discussing activities for our next campouts, as well as where we want to go to Summer Camp next year. Bring your ideas!
Our Fall Court of Honor has been pushed back to Tuesday, October 18, so you now have one extra week to get your Advancements and/or completed Merit Badge Blue Cards to Mr Hoenich. The new deadline is Tuesday, October 4.
Reminder – be sure you are selling popcorn – is a great way to raise money to pay for your Scout activities!
Other News :
Be sure you are up to date on your monthly dues – it is $5 a month / $60 per year. You can pay in advance, or per month. If you fall more than 3 months behind, you must get caught up before you can attend a campout or activity other than a Troop meeting.
Popcorn sales have started – great way to earn money for your Scout account.
Troop Committee Meeting – just a reminder, we have a monthly Troop Committee Meeting where Troop Adults and Parents discuss our activities and review finance and equipment needs, amongst other things. Even if you are not an avid camper or super active in Scouts, you can help out by attending the Committee Meetings. The Committee Meeting is the 1st Monday after the first Thursday of each month. A little confusing, yes, but the District Roundtable is the first Thursday of the month, so we hold our Committee Meetings the following Monday so we can share and discuss news from Roundtable. Our next Committee Meeting is Monday, October 10 at 7:00 pm. We also welcome you to attend Troop events and/or campouts so you can see your son and his fellow Scouts in action.
