NEXT TROOP MEETING - March 2nd: Swim Check at the YMCA Glendale/Peoria

Posted by tking on Feb 24 2015 - 6:12am

On Monday, March 2, 2015, the troop will meet at the YMCA in Glendale in lieu of a regular troop meeting. Do not go to the church. Meet at the YMCA instead beginning at 6:30 PM. We will have more specific information about times, etc. as we get closer to the event date (as in the past we have had staggered start times based on patrol to alleviate waiting times at the pool).

This event is MANDATORY for all scouts and adults to be able to participate in any water-based activities in the troop including the March canoe trip to the Hoover Dam. You MUST complete a swim check or you cannot attend!

Please bring $5 cash to the event and completed waiver form and visitor form required by the YMCA for admission that evening. If you download and complete the forms to bring with you, it will save time. You cannot swim without the fee and forms.

Please review the attached POOL RULES. Bring a towel, goggles, and a water bottle with you. Wear proper swim attire and your Class B t-shirt.

Mr. Andrews is coordinating this event for the troop and will be making announcements. Please contact him with any questions.

March 14th: Kaleb's Eagle Project

Posted by tking on Feb 24 2015 - 6:11am

Did you know that one in six people in Arizona experience hunger? Initially, it sounds ridiculous; everyone gets hungry at some point. But what the statistic really means is that 17% of people in our state alone don't know where their next meal will come from or how they will get it. Kaleb's Eagle Project hopes to help with that figure.

Please join Kaleb Brunmeier for his Eagle Project scheduled for Saturday, March 14th to benefit the St. Mary's Food Bank.

When: Saturday, March 14th 9 AM - 2 PM
Where: CCOJ Parking Lot and the square mile block directly EAST of the church
What: Collecting donations for St. Mary's Food Bank. Scouts will be going door to door, asking for donations to give the St. Mary's Food Bank.
Who is Needed: The more, the merrier! All volunteers are welcome. However, adult drivers are essential for this project to succeed. Not to mention, as many Scouts as possible in order to gather donations. It's only thanks to fellow scouts that boys become Eagles.

Attention Adult Leaders: Sign Up for March Wood Badge Training

Posted by tking on Feb 23 2015 - 3:17pm
Our Scouts Deserve Trained Adult Leaders.
 
To take our troop to the next level, all of our registered adult leaders need to complete Wood Badge training.
 
The next Wood Badge Course will be held at the Heard Scout Pueblo right here in Phoenix on March 12-14 and March 26-28 (you must attend both sessions). You must register by March 5, 2015 to attend this course. Grand Canyon Council Registration: http://www.grandcanyonbsa.org/event/1548648
 
The Wood Badge W6-10-15-2 course website is at: https://sites.google.com/site/woodbadgeaz2015/
 
Sign up for Wood Badge training to receive the best Boy Scout leadership training available. It's actually some of the best leadership training available, period.
 
This requires only 4 days of vacation from work, assuming that you work Thursdays and Fridays, but not Saturdays.
 
Your employer may even pay you to attend, as the leadership skills that you will learn easily transfer to the Corporate world. (see attachment)

Also, the Troop 365 Committee may pay or assist with your $215 Wood Badge course fee. Please request possible reimbursement from Sheila Buchanan.

I will be attending this Wood Badge course on staff as the Assistant Senior Patrol Leader and would love to see everyone possible attend.
 
Paul Rideout attended the first Wood Badge course this year, so feel free to ask him how much he likes it.
 
Please contact me with any questions.
 
Yours in Scouting,
Fred Pfeifer
Troop 365, Asst. Scoutmaster
Eagle Adviser
