Oct. 23-25: Lava River Cave Base Camp

Posted by tking on Aug 30 2015 - 5:50pm

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.

Bring One Jar of Peanut Butter to Monday Night's Troop Meeting!

Posted by tking on Aug 29 2015 - 3:22pm

Just one jar of peanut butter!

Grace Anderson, a representative from Community Church of Joy, who regularly visits an orphanage in Rocky Point, Mex. was hoping you might just bring one jar of peanut butter to Monday night's meeting. It was by chance that I even bumped into Grace this evening at the post office. She told me about her upcoming trip to the orphanage scheduled for Labor Day weekend.

She explained that many of the children are school age and all the lunches have to be packed every day. Lunch meat is expensive (let alone specialized bags and ice to keep it cool) so it makes peanut butter the best choice for school lunches.

If you want to learn more about the orphanage here is their web site: http://www.esperanzaparalosninos.com. I believe Grace visits at least twice a year, if not more. What a great opportunity for our Troop to demonstrate compassion and caring for these beautiful children!

Just one jar!

Thank you!

Mrs. Wilson

Sep. 18-20: West Clear Creek Backpack

Posted by tking on Aug 18 2015 - 12:57pm

Our first troop outing will be an overnight backpack into the West Clear Creek Wilderness area. This is a great backpack experience for scouts of all skill levels. We will be descending 600 feet and 1.5 miles into the beautiful narrow canyon of West Clear Creek. There are great opportunities for exploring, hiking, fishing and swimming. There are numerous petroglyphs on the walls of this narrow canyon. We will hike down and explore the West Clear Creek Grotto, which after a rain can have a spectacular waterfall pouring down the center.  West Clear Creek extends from Happy Jack to the Verde River (approximately 40 miles) and it is one of Arizona’s most beautiful wilderness areas.  A large variety of wildlife and plant life exists in this canyon.


Sep. 25-26 Geezer Retreat on Mogollon Rim

Posted by tking on Aug 9 2015 - 7:34pm

Our annual Troop Committee Campout is the weekend of September 25-27. The purpose of the committee campout is to discuss the upcoming year of scouting and to do the logistical planning for the outings and activities that the scouts put together on their calendar at the PLC Retreat in August. All adults are welcome at the campout! Boys/other children do not attend this one. 

If you cannot attend the committee campout, please look over the draft calendar and e-mail Paul and Shelia any outings or duties you would like to volunteer for in the upcoming calendar year. This campout is also a good way to learn about the volunteer opportunities available in your troop.

Besides work, we also usually take a hike on Saturday and have a Frisbee golf tournament so bring your best Frisbee. Sheila Buchanan is our grubmaster and will supply the food for meals at the outing (Saturday breakfast, lunch, dinner and Sunday breakfast).  The participants will split the cost of food and the cleaning and cooking duties.  In the past, adults have also brought other snacks to share during the meeting times as well. Bring enough water and other desired beverages for the weekend, a tent, a cot or sleeping mat, sleeping bag, and personal items.  (Don’t forget that Frisbee, 1st prize is bragging rights.)

Our camp this year will be on the Mogollon Rim. From Highway 260, turn right onto Young Highway, just after you top out on the Rim.  Go about 2.5 miles down the Young Highway. Turn left on to Forest Rd #79 and go about 1 mile to the campsite.  This is a non BSA event and food and driving are split up among the adults going.  We bring the troop trailer up for cooking and camping supplies.

Average temperatures for late September are low 80s during the day and high 40s at night. 

Sign up online as soon possible, and if you have questions, contact Paul Rideout.
