Happy New Year! Scout Information

posted Jan 6, 2016, 2:20 PM by Doug Schaefer

Happy New Year everyone!  Welcome back to school, work, and a schedule once again.  Our first meeting for 2016 will be this Thursday January 7, 2016 at the usual time.  Some information to note:

This meeting will be our Order of the Arrow elections.  In order to have the election, we need as many of our registered scouts as possible to be at the meeting.  If we have too few, we can hold the election and will need to reschedule.

We want to finalize Klondike Derby signups this week.  The derby is a one day event, January 30th.  We'll leave the church around 7:00 am and return around 4-5:00 pm.  Cost will be about $15.00 per scout, which covers registration fee, patch, and food.  
On the subject of Klondike, we usually get Klondike hoodies each year, if we have the interest this year, we'll do it again.  Cost will be in the $20-25 range, I'll know more when I contact the hoodie dealer.  

Our next trip will be the Ski Trip in February, the 12th - 14th.  We will be staying at Delmont, in the same cabin as last year, which was great.  Lights, and LOTS of bunks, and a big fireplace for heat.  Once we hear back from the ski lodge, we'll get a list of costs for various activities out.

Also coming up this Thursday is the deadline for early registration for summer camp.  We need a $25 NON REFUNDABLE deposit by January 7th, 2016.  If the balance is paid by 5/12/2016, the cost will be $385 total.  After that date and up to June 23rd the total cost will be $410.  Any balances after that date and through the first day of camp will be $450.  All we need is $25 on Thursday, if you aren't sure about your scout account balance, get me at the meeting or email me.

I think that is all for right now.  I look forward to seeing everyone on Thursday!
