Posted on Sep 11 2019 - 9:50pm

Scouts and Adults,

Do you want to go to one of the best summer camps around?  Camp Alexander in Colorado is always rated a top-experience!

Please sign up if you "might go".  This sign up has no commitment.  I will take our numbers and call Camp Alexander next week and see what our options are.

What we know now:

 - The Camp is Awesome!

 - Total cost will be ~$600/scout and ~$500/adult

 - Total time will be 1 week.  We will request June but may get July based on sign up dates

As I said there is no cost today.  Once we know availability we will pick a week and ask everyone for a $35 commitment. You are welcome to back out then.

Get those Rank Advancements and Merit Badges done before the next Court of Honor.

Our next Court of Honor (COH) is scheduled for September 28th.  This date is approaching fast.  The last opportunity for scouts to complete boards of review in order to be recognized at the COH will be at the troop campout on the weekend of Sept 21-22.  Please let Mr Bean know ASAP if you will be ready for your board of review by then.  Also, any completed Merit Badge blue cards should be turned in to Mr Bean no later than Sunday Sept 22 in order to get them recorded and be awarded at the COH.

 CONGRATULATIONS to  Lola B., Catt G., and Morgan B. who each successfully completed their board of review and earned their Tenderfoot Rank on Sunday Sept 8. WELL DONE Scouts !!!
