It's rechartering Season!

Posted by tking on Sep 30 2015 - 9:55am

It's time to recharter for 2016.  Bob Hetrick will be collecting rechartering money for 2016 at each meeting through November 2. 

(This may be extended one week depending on the exact District charter turn-in day.)

We need to collect 2016 dues, which are $60 per Scout, plus an optional $12 for Boys LifeAdult fees are $25.20.  Order of the Arrow Members owe an extra $10, except those who completed their Ordeals in the second half of 2015, who are already paid for 2016.

You can pay with a check made out to Troop 365, cash, or with funds in you or your Scout's unit account.  (Bob has account balance info.)

Once the last Monday collection date passes (either November 2 or November 9), Bob will finalize the charter, get it signed by our sponsor, and turn it in.  Anyone who has misses that deadline will need to fill out a new membership application for 2016 in addition to paying fees.

One more note:  Adults have to have current Youth Protection on a Myscouting.org account that is connected to their BSA ID number.  To be safe, please take it if the last time that you took it is before April 1, 2014.

Look up Bob Hetrick at any of the upcoming meetings.

Nov. 7th: T365 MB Roundup - Need Scouts to Register with MB Choices NOW

Posted by tking on Sep 22 2015 - 8:31am

Dr. Nguyen is coordinating a merit badge roundup event for our troop on Saturday, November 7th from 12 PM - 4 PM. We will ask various MB Counselors in the troop to teach classes that day for scouts based on scout interest.  In order for this event to take place we need scouts to register online ASAP and select their top 3-4 merit badges they wish to take that day. We will then determine which badges can be offered based on scout preferences, counselor availability and logistics for that particular badge. If you would like a listing of counselors in the troop, please visit http://glendale365.mytroop.us/node/1161.


Oct. 23-25: Lava River Cave Base Camp

Posted by rvideen on Sep 19 2015 - 3:46am

Our October outing will be as base camp near the Lava Tubes, just west of Flagstaff. The Lava Tubes were formed 70,000 years ago. The cave is ¾ of a mile long and stays about 42 degrees all year long.  Parts of the cave are big enough to drive a bus through! The entrance is rocky, and the rocks can be slippery so wear some sturdy shoes with a good grip. Bring 2 flashlights/headlamps, as ¾ of a mile is a long way to hike in the dark.

The theme for this camp is orienteering. In the past, we have set up a 2 to 3 mile orienteering course that ended with a hike to the bottom of the Lava Tubes. The PLC will decide on further activities at this camp. We will also have plenty of opportunities for rank advancement, patrol competitions Baden Powell Games, and cooking skills.

This will also be a good opportunity to enjoy the fall colors of the near-by San Francisco Peaks. The weather this time of year can drop below freezing at night and be in the sixties during the day so dress and pack appropriately.


Support your Troop and Subscribe to the Off-Route Flag Service

Posted by tking on Feb 11 2013 - 3:03pm
As was announced at the recent Court of Honor, Troop members are encouraged to participate and support the Troop by purchasing an off-route flag subscription. For $30, you will receive a 3'x5' American Flag that you keep and display on all appropriate holidays. The troop can install the sleeve for you in your yard if you need assistance. Have your scout post the flag on all holidays! Your $30 donation is tax-deductible. You can also use your scout account to pay for the subscription. Every troop family should have an off-route flag subscription when possible. It helps all of our scouts!
