Weekly Announcements: Sept. 23rd

Posted on Sep 22 2021 - 7:21pm

Hello Troop 82,

Sorry about last week.  I was out of town and intended to put a weekly e-blast together but it just slipped through the cracks.  Anyway, some important announcements:

The troop camping trip is this weekend and it will be a fun one full of lots of activities and games designed to learn about troop organization and leadership skills.  Mr. Gutherman has worked really hard on putting this weekend's events together so let us all show our appreciation by attendingThe location is Ockanickon Scout Reservation (same as summer camp) so it is only about an hours drive up north if a scout just wants to come for Saturday.  The leaders would appreciate any adult volunteers as well to help cook and setup the games as the leaders and scouts will be busy with events.  Regardless of whether you are coming for the weekend or just the day, please either contact me through e-mail or register on our website by going here so the leaders can get an accurate attendance for patrols and events.  The tentative departure time is 7:30 p.m. due to other commitments of troop leadership but this may change by half hour or so.  An e-mail will be sent either Thursday or Friday morning giving a more solid time.  We should arrive at Ockanickon SR around 8:30 p.m. so if anyone wants to come up Friday night, we will be there.  Since we are traveling to/from a scout reservation, Class A attire is required.  Once at camp, everyone can change into something more comfortable.  It looks to be a good crisp fall weekend with plenty of sun!  Hopefully as many scouts as possible can make it.

We have been asked for anyone interested in volunteering to help the annual Covered Bridges Ride.  There are various roles with date, times, and job descriptions available through a SignUp Genius.  The event is on Sunday, Oct. 10th, but there are other times that they need volunteers on Oct 1st, 8th, and 9th.  If any scouts or adults decide on volunteering, Mr. Piascik can be reached at 215-796-2562, if you have any questions.

Tamanend District is planning a fall camp-o-ree on our October camping weekend.  I've discussed with our Troop SPL, and he was keen on the idea of going to that event.  However, I would like to put it up to a vote so I've created a survey.  Please take a moment to fill it out and make your vote heard.

Now on to this week's regular announcements:

  • Camping/Day trips.  
    • Sept. 24th-26th:  Junior Leadership Training at Ockinickon Scout Reservation (same place as summer camp)
      • Great for new scouts and old to learn about leadership and boy scout organization (troop leadership, patrol leadership, the patrol method, etc.) all through a fun program with lots of activities
