This Wednesday we will discuss the Scout Swim Test at Camp Baker - which is also a First Class Scout requirement - and present the training on Safe Swim Defense - a Second Class Scout requirement. Just about 30 Scouts from Troop 100 have signed up for Camp Baker, so we will take a signup this week for adult drivers going to and/or from Camp Baker.

Troop 100 viewed the original copy of the Declaration of Independence at the Rounda for the Charters of Freedom in the National Archives Museum during its Washington D.C. and National Jamboree Tour in 2013.

Given the two short portages, it is advised to wear tennis shoes, scandals, or water shoes and shorts. You may bring a water bottle.

This activity will provide training for a canoe trip on the National Canoe Trail from the Siltcoos Lake to the estuary near the ocean during our week at Camp Baker, July 12-18th.

The list: your day pack (book bag works well), Boy Scout Handbook, a liter of water, trail (sack) lunch, rain gear (poncho, etc.), compass (orienteering style), map of the area (provided on site by the Hikemaster), pencil/paper, a clipboard, and your personal first aid kit (you can make one and put the items in a ziplock bag). If you are going, but do not have an orienteering style compass, please call Ed Nitkowski at 541-686-1327 so he will have a good count of the number of loaner compasses to roundup!

Saturday, June 13, 2015, American Legion Hall, River Road, Eugene

The American Legion on River Road, Eugene, will be hosting its annual Flag Day Ceremony this year on June 13th, a Saturday, between approx. noon and 2:00pm. They always ask the Scouts to participate. It's a great opportunity to come and show your patriotism, to help the Legion, and to fulfill a Scout requirement and/or earn a flag segment for your uniform. The address is 3650 River Road, 97404. It is north of Beltline, just north of Irvington, on the west side of River Road.

If Scouts would like to be a part of the Ceremony, they need to be there by 11:45am IN FULL UNIFORM, including sash if appropriate. The Scouts will be a presence, can assist with set up of chairs and the speaker's podium, and will be handling the flags to retire.

To retire old, worn flags, there's a formal ceremony, and then the flags are burned in great fashion in the flag incinerator. (Flags for retirement may be taken to this ceremony or brought to the troop meeting Wednesday evening. In the future, flags for retirement may be left in the depository at the American Legion. The depository for flags and the separate depository for bottles and cans was Joe Laver's recent Eagle Scout Service Project.)
Afterward, the Legion will have a burger lunch for sale.

In the past, there has been music, a presence of military personnel, and guest speakers. We hope to contact the media, as they have featured this Ceremony in the past.
On Friday night before the Ceremony, there will be a brief run-through at 6:00pm, and all are welcomed to come to that as well.
Please contact Stan Anderson at stanapac@q.com, or 541-342-7063 (message), if you have any questions.
