UPDATE: Postponed until late summer. Date TBD

It’s time again to start gathering donations for the Troop 412 Garage Sale. Clean out your closets. Look under the bed. Find that stuff you haven’t used in forever and donate it to Troop 412.

  • It’s great for the troop.

Troop 412 uses the proceeds from our annual garage sale to buy gear and equipment like tents, stoves, canopies, dutch ovens, as well as propane, trash bags and paper towels. Without this garage sale, the cost of ever campout would be increased.

  • It’s great for you.

Running your own garage sale is a pain! Don’t give up your whole weekend just to make a couple hundred dollars. Your donation to the BSA is tax deductible! (Receipts available)

  • When is the garage sale?

Saturday, April 6. 8:00 am to 2:00 pm.

  • Where is the garage sale?

Olathe Christian Church

  • How can I donate?

If you have items that you would like to donate to Troop 412, drop off is Friday, March 28, from 4:00 p.m. until 6:00 p.m. at Olathe Christian Church.  Tax donation receipts available at drop off.

  • Please share.

If you like those five new tents we bought last year, and want to get a few more, please use the share buttons below this post to share with friends and family. Let’s make this the biggest, best garage sale ever!

It’s time for our annual March Bartle campout. This is the one where we do a service project at H. Roe Bartle Scout Reservation, see our summer campsite and get a taste of summer’s best treat – a peach Nehi float. This is also the first campout for our new first year crossovers!

Traditionally, it rains a lot on this campout, so please come prepared for mud and rain! And stay on the official paths if you’re driving. You don’t want to end up like this:

January 2014 Skiing Campout – One night event

The troop is going to Snow Creek in Westin, Missouri for our January campout.  Due to the Redtail Hawk Merit Badge forum also starting the same weekend, the troop will be doing one night only campout this month.  Scouts and Scouters will have the opportunity to Ski, Snowboard or Tube on this campout.  Never done it before, don’t fret, there are 1 hour group lessons available for you to learn how to Ski or Snowboard.  In addition to the snow sport activities, we will be camping on the grounds.  Cost will be approximately $60 for this campout and will include equipment rental, helmet rental and lift-tickets.  We plan to leave the church around 5:30p on Saturday, January 11.  Looking forward to our event.

January camp master, Scott Coffelt.

The Lock In was a great success. There was about 5-10 Weblos Attending the Lock In. There was Pizza, Soda, Doughnuts, and lots more food items there. Nearly the whole troop showed up for the lock In. I asked everyone if they had fun at the Lock in and they all said yes.

The Pin Night was also another great success too. There were about 30 weblos there ready to earn some new pins! The Honey Badgers had Scientist. The Ravens had Neatness. The Knights had Showmanship. And the Seals had Handyman. The Pin Night was also a very big turnout for such a good troop.
