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.

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.

We are kicking off our Equal Exchange fundraiser! We’re offering delicious, organic coffee, as well as incredible chocolates and flavorful teas. Also available are handcrafted items, handmade giftwrap, and Ten Thousand Villages crafts.  The items are fairly priced and our group makes an excellent percentage on every product we sell.

Troop 412 will be having our September campout on September 13 to 15 at Shawnee Mission Park. The scouts have decided to LARP. LARP stands for Live Action Role Playing. The theme for the LARP will be Star Wars. If you are a Star Wars junkie, you will not want to miss this event. If you’re not a fan of Star Wars, you’ll still enjoy the competition and the “capture the flag” games.

We will be gathering at the church at 5:30pm and leaving for the park at 6:00pm. Please eat dinner prior to arriving at the church. The troop will return to the church approximately 11:00am Sunday morning. Please complete the attendance survey below. If attending, please also complete the permission slip. If there are any questions or concerns, please contact Bill W. at May the force be with you.


Now, please enjoy “Star Wars Kid”. Twenty-eight million others already have!
