Knot Apps for your Phone

Posted by tking on Aug 19 2014 - 8:59am

In keeping with this month's theme of knots, the latest addition of Scouting Magazine has information about 3 knot tying apps for iOS or Android:

  • Animated Knots by Grog
    From the Albright Knot to the Zeppelin Bend, this app shows you how to master mega-bunches of knots, arranged in categories, including Basic, Boating, Fishing, Scouting and more. Grog also gives you detailed descriptions of each knot's uses, advantages, and disadvantages. Its motto? "Better to know a knot and not need it, than need a knot and not know it." $4.99 for iOS or Android.
  • How To Tie Knots 3D
    This 3-D animated app wants to be your "personal assistant" in learning more than 45 essential knots. Animated step-by-step directions - "Cross the running end over itself to make a small loop" - shed plenty of light on the subject. $1.99 for iOS, free for Android.
  • Knots 3D
    Good pause and speed controls for the rotational views make this app a standout way to learn more than 90 knots. You'll find brief histories of the knots and explanations of some unusual knot names, and you can use your finger to spin the knot and see how it looks from any angle in 3-D. 99 cents for iOS and Android.

Of course, nothing beats the resource of our own cast of Forest Friendly Fred, Granny Knot Gordon, Right Knot Ambelang, Wilderness Webster, and Safe Scout Sheila. Video available soon online!

August/September Camping Information

Posted by tking on Aug 13 2014 - 12:08pm

The PLC has returned from their annual planning retreat and a calendar has been drafted. While the entire calendar is not released until the last week of September, there are a few camp outs scheduled before that date and they have been posted so you may plan for them in advance. Fact Outing Sheets will be released as soon as possible:

  • August 30 (depart 6 AM) - September 1st (Return 3 PM): HIGH ADVENTURE (14+) Backpack of West Clear Creek
    This was previously the Havasupai Trip which had to be changed due to no available reservations. This trip is for high adventure only - ages 14+ or with Scoutmaster permission. Mr. Rideout is the SM for this trip. Mr. Brunmeier is the Committee Member for this trip.
  • September 19-21st: Blue Ridge Canoe Trip (Open to All Scouts/Adults)

IMPORTANT: Troop Meetings Moved to Mondays at 7 PM Effective Aug. 18th at The Bridge Building

Posted by tking on Jul 30 2014 - 8:20pm

Due to constraints of the Church of Joy's room availability and the needs of our troop for space, our troop meetings will now be held on MONDAYS at 7 PM instead of Tuesdays. We will have a new location as well - the CCOJ Bridge building (Kid Kountry is no longer available with all the changes and construction taking place). The Bridge building is the large circular front building that is just north of the worship center. It will be a very nice location for the troop that will adequately meet our needs. The church was unable to offer us a large enough space on Tuesday evenings. We realize that this is short notice for those of you planning your fall schedule, but we were without any other options. Please direct questions to our COR, Mr. Andrews or to Committee Chair, Mrs. Buchanan.
