9:00 a.m. - 4:00 p.m. Dylan Hurilmann Eagle Scout Service Project

Hello Fellow Scouts,

The past few weeks I have been moving forward with my Eagle Project, and I am happy to announce that I have set the date for March 6th for it. The project will be a general restoration event for the culvert adjacent to the Troop garage, at Wesley United Methodist Church. It will start at 9am and go until 3-4pm, or until it's finished. The details of the project I will explain in further detail on site on the day of. The key details I'd like to inform any interested are the following.

This project will be highly "Bring Your Own" oriented. Due to Covid-19 guidelines, policies on food are highly restricted, so for this event you will be bringing your own lunch, to prevent cross contamination as much as possible.

As for tools, that will also be BYO. Tools to bring include Loppers and Rakes. It is also imperative that you bring your own GLOVES. This project will be dealing a lot with brush and yard debris, so gloves are required. Same with masks, as per usual due to Covid-19 guidelines.

Thank you all and I hope to see many of you in attendance.

Sincerely,
Dylan Hurlimann

Troop 100 Scout Family Ski Day

Signup this week for the Troop 100 Scout Family Ski Day at the Hoodoo Ski Area on Saturday, February 20, 2021. Travel to Hoodoo with family in your family vehicle and meet up (distanced) at the outdoor ski rental area by 8:30 a.m. to secure parking in the lot and ski rentals. (See road conditions at skihoodoo.com, click on The Mountain) If you plan to arrive late (9 - 10 a.m.) you should be prepared with an Oregon Snow Park Permit allowing you to park on the road in (west side only) or out on the highway (and hike in) as Hoodoo has been extremely popular as a day event destination this winter. Everything is outdoors this year, except some restrooms, so be prepared with pocket sanitizer. Sack lunches are recommended, although hot food is being provided through cart windows outdoors.

Troop 100 will organize so that troop funding and group rates can be used, but supervision on the hill is for the parent(s) of the Scout participating. This year, for Troop 100 Scouts, the troop will pay for the Scout's lesson if requested by the parent for the Scout in advance (highly recommended for Scouts with no prior skiing experience), and half the cost of the group lift ticket ($48.) and rental of ski or snowboard gear ($20.). Family can be part of the troop group and pay the troop at the group rate. A lower priced lift ticket at $25. limited to the beginner's hill (Easy Rider) can be substituted. (One family/household members limited to a lift ride at a time.)

Should a family group want to arrive later in the afternoon as the parking lot thins out and stay for the night skiing, please advise. Rental helmets are not available this year due to Covid, but required by Troop 100 and BSA for downhill skiing. If you don't yet have your own, they can be purchased in Eugene at Berg's, Dick's or similar. A reimbursement policy for Scouts from the Activity Allowance will be settled at the parent Meeting Thursday evening. A family group may also reserve for Nordic Skiing (cross-country) lesson and equipment and the troop will pay for half the Scout's lesson and equipment with the balance from the Scout's Activity Allowance. The Autobahn (tubing hill) has not been opened at this time, but if opened later is typically included with the lift ticket.

Henry Schramm Eagle Scout Service Project

Hello Troop 100,

I need help building bat boxes for my Eagle project. I’ve put together kits and an instructional video for any scout who wants to help build one. Please use this Google Doc (https://docs.google.com/document/d/1s1Q-Dcu-wI3QUB9HRV6XjFTHZkW4G7L8TOaS...) to sign up, there’s 11 boxes that need to be built. I’m available all of this week to drop off the kit, and I need the boxes built by January 31st. Feel free to fill out multiple slots if your family has multiple scouts who would all like to build one. Construction should take about an hour.

Thank you,
Henry Schramm

Wednesday, January 20, 2021, Zoom Meeting

7:00 p.m. - 8:00 p.m. Troop Meeting virtually by Zoom with a link to be emailed prior to the meeting. (The time from 8:00 p.m. - 8:30 p.m. is reserved for Scouts needing to complete advancement work or to complete the Sports Merit Badge from our prior meetings this month.) Our theme beginning this week - as we approach Scouting's 111th Anniversary - is the Scouting Heritage Merit Badge. The links for the merit badge book with requirements and the workbook are:

NOTE:
The Oregon Health Authority and Lane County Public Health have advised that Scouting comes under the Statewide Reopening Guidance for Youth Programs of November 18, 2020, which is an exception to Oregon's various activity guidance under a county's level of risk. In making this decision, the Oregon Health Authority made the following findings: "Youth programs and enrichment programs play an important role in supporting Comprehensive Distance Learning for school aged children (K-12) and are also important as a source of developmental support for youth and to meet the needs of many working parents."

Considering the support of the Parent Committee, and in consultation with the Unit Commissioner and the Oregon Trail Council; the troop is planning to offer a choice of an in-person meeting under the OHA Youth Program exception at the Scout Service Center Community Room or virtual Zoom participation in the near future, subject to moving the meetings outdoors as weather improves. No overnight youth program activities are permitted under the guidelines at this time. (In the meantime, we are planning for the required safety protocols and technological arrangements necessary to make in-person meetings possible with a virtual option.)
