Wednesday, JuIy 8, 2020, Wesley Church Back Lawn around the Picnic Shelter

6:30 p.m. Venture Scouts - Our Fifty MIler Rafting Trip on the Lower Deschutes is full with the campground permitted 16 participants. Contact Rush Hoag (541-232-9465) immediately if you want to add and we will see if a way can be found. Participants should read and study the trip information sent to you and the list of things to bring. Final trip decisions on the departure and put in time and pull out and return times will be made. Print out the Release of Liability sent to you and bring it filled out and signed to the meeting.

7:00 p.m. Troop Meeting - Summer Uniform (Scout T-shirts, distance, mask)

This week we celebrate Clayton Sherlock's 17th Birthday with pizza as the meeting begins. Come to wish Clayton a happy one!

This week we turn to the National BSA Scouting theme for July: Citizenship with instruction and games. Plans to complete Citizenship in the Community, Nation, and World for Scouts with partials from the Troop's prior Citizenship Merit Badge Clinic to be discussed. Written work taken toward completions.

Signup and plans confirmed for this Thursday's outdoor activity of trout fishing at the Leaburg Lake on the Mckenzie River at the hatchery and EWEB Park. If this option should lack sufficient support, we can consider Saturday or Plan B which is trout fishing at the Junction City Pond, 92770 Highway 99S, Junction City. (However, last Thursday, the hike of Spencer's Butte was well attended.) An email after the troop meeting will confirm the final plan for those interested, but unable to attend the troop meeting.

Thursday, July 9, 2020, Leabug Lake on the Mckenzie River

8:00 a.m. Meet at Wesley Church for departure for Leaburg Lake trout fishing. We expect to be taking a drift boat and alternate turns, so this will be a combination of bank and drift boat fishing over the hole. Bring your fishing license, pole and tackle, and lunch. Youth licenses (age 12-17) are available at Bi-Mart or similar for $10. Adult licenses are $44., Senior licenses (requires prior registration with ODFW) are $29., and Pioneer licenses are $6. (Should we lack sufficient support at the troop meeting to go out to Leaburg Lake on Thursday, we can consider Saturday or a Plan B to go to the Junction Pond.

Camping Ahead

Additional youth and adult signup will be taken for these camps at the troop meetings. Dr. Williams is available to assist with updating the camp medicals. Camp costs will be split between the Troop and the Scout Activity Allowances. This will include a nominal charge of $50. per Scout per camp for food and supplies plus any activity charges.

  • Armitage Park Pioneer Skills and Adventure Camp, July 20-24.

    We have the two group sites at this park with wide fields on the Mckenzie River reserved. Camp is limited to a maximum of 8 participants in each group site or a total of 16. Camp begins Monday, July 20th at the 2 p.m. check in and concludes on Friday, July 24th at the 12 noon check out. The plan is for the Scouts to master Scout pioneering skills and earn the Pioneering Merit Badge with adventure activities on Tuesday, Wednesday, and Thursday afternoons. Adult support is needed, but since camp is just north of town, parents might alternate days.

  • Scott Lake Hiking Camp, August 3-7.
  • Camp Baker Troop Camp, August 17-21.

Wednesday, July 1, 2020, Wesley Church

6:30 p.m. PLC Meeting - Summer Plans

7:00 p.m. Troop Meeting - Summer Uniform - Troop, Scout, or Camp T-shirt

At PLC request, this week the troop returns to Wesley Church! Meet in back outside on the classroom wing lawn - in the good weather - with your camp chair, distanced, masks recommended. We will have an outdoor electronic speaker so it will be easy to hear while distanced outside. (There are no support groups meeting in the classroom wing at this time). Meeting limited to 25 in one spot at this time; if there is an overflow side meetings for Venture, advancement and Boards of Review, adults and Parent Meeting, etc. can be held in the Fellowship Hall or Conference Room. The Troop all three spots reserved.

  • This week's program: Sustainability Merit Badge, led by Counselor David Evarts. A special message from the counselor:

    I'm David Evarts. I'm the grandfather of Miles House and a professional computational biologist. This next Wednesday, July 1st, I'll be teaching a class to help all of the scouts earn their Sustainability Merit Badge. It is a silver bordered merit badge and, thus, fulfills an Eagle requirement. Last Wednesday, Orion VanBuskirk and Robert Shidek provided some very good information on Sustainability. It would be really great if the boys have a chance to read the handbook before Wednesday.

    The link to the MB book is here:
    https://www.troop100eugene.com/system/files/SustainabilityMBBook.pdf

    If the scouts can write down answers to the questions for the requirements, before Wednesday, that would really help discussion and would make it easier to judge whether they have the information. Please bring your answers with you. Parts of requirement 1, Requirement 2 Food A, requirement 2 Energy B or C, requirement 2 stuff A, and requirement 5 require some family discussion and two weeks of monitoring. If you've not yet started those, you can get a partial; and when you finish Rush or I can sign off to complete your merit badge. I'll be very interested to hear what you and your families have decided, and how you can contribute to the goal of sustainability.

    Thank You,
    David

(These would replace out of county Camp Mooney and closed Camp Melakwa. Sorry, Camp Baker is not available to individual troops at this time.)

This week we continue the Sustainability theme with the Water Challenge Game, discussions of the "triple bottom line: people, planet, and prosperity" and discussion of the "three types of environmental stewards: doers, donors, and practitioners." We will finish the evening with the Sustainability Matching Game. The patrol groups from last month's theme - Financial Management - will be asked to report on the progress of their one million dollar investment portfolios.

Next week, Wednesday, July 1st, David Evart will present a class on Sustainability Merit Badge, an Eagle required merit badge. Pre-work will be discussed at this week's troop meeting.

Wednesday, June 17, 2020, Scout Service Center, 2525 MLK, Jr. Blvd., Eugene

(The trial troop meeting this week is offered in person outside at the Scout Service Center under the Council approved safety plan at the bottom of this message. Please read and understand the plan before coming to the meeting. Be sure to physically distance, wear your mask, bring your own camp chair, and use your personal hand sanitizer as necessary.)

6:30 p.m. Venture Scout Meeting - Summer Rafting Plan (Venture Scouts is open to all troop Scouts who are at least Star Rank and 14 years old.)

7:00 p.m. Troop Meeting
Opening - Stand and remain at your camp chair for the pledge, oath, law and code.
- Opening discussion of summer camping plans.
- This month our theme is Sustainability, leading to a class on Eagle required Sustainability Merit Badge. Activities this week include:

  • Brief review of the meaning of Sustainability from last week's meeting.
  • Group Instruction - Oliver Tracer: Lead a troop discussion of the difference between energy conservation and energy efficiency. (Hints: Energy efficiency means installing equipment, lighting, or appliances that use less energy, i.e. replacing an incandescent light bulb with an LED one. Conservation means changing behavior to save energy, i.e. turning off the lights.) Lead a discussion of how both approaches reduce energy usage, bills, pollution, and greenhouse gas emissions.
  • Skills - Ren Tracer: Introduce the term "miles per gallon" and what it means. Lead a discussion of the pros and cons of personal vehicles, public transportation, and walking/biking. Compare the efficiency levels of gas and electric vehicles and how they can be improved.
  • Skills - Jackson Fort: Review a household utility bill (electric, water, sewer, waste water, etc.). Explain what is contained in it including taxes, fees, and credits, etc. Compare usage levels on a month by month basis and reasons for the differences. Discuss ways with the Scouts to realistically reduce usage levels for each utility.
  • Skills - Henry Schramm: Introduce the term "carbon footprint." Discuss the sustainability of the various energy sources: solar, wind, geothermal, nuclear, hydro, etc. Have the Scouts give the pros and cons of the various energy sources and how their usage affects the environment and personal lifestyles. Get the Scouts to list 5 to 10 ways they can realistically reduce their carbon "footprints."
  • Game - Skyler Martin: Lead the game: Sustain-a-Bingo. Distribute Bingo Cards to all. For each letter and number assign a sustainable personal or family action (We may have to reuse a few). For example, call out B1 = "buys organic produce." The first person to get a Bingo wins. Use your imagination, but other actions might be: has weekly meatless meals, drives a hybrid car, uses public transportation, buys green power credits, serves as a community volunteer, read a book about sustainability, etc.

Closing - Stand and give the Scout Sign at your camp chair for vespers and benediction.
