Final sign up for the troop snowshoe trip to Willamette Pass and review of clothing and items to take in a day pack.

Saturday, February 20, 2016. Troop snowshoe trek from the Gold Lake Snow Park just below Willamette Pass to an outbound log shelter and return. This will be a day event with departure from the church by 8 AM (meet at the church at 7:30 a.m.) daypacks, a warming fire in the woodstove at the shelter, a cooked trail lunch, and return to the vehicles in daylight. Expect dinner at A & W in Oakridge or similar. Appropriate dress for snow will be reviewed for a third time at the troop meeting on February 17 with a handout. Each participant will need to provide their own snowshoes or rental of the same at Bergs. A one-day rental charge of seven dollars will apply, with pick up of the snowshoes beginning at 10 AM on Friday, February 19 and return on Sunday, February 21 after Bergs opens at 12 noon. Sizing is by weight, so parents can pick up snowshoes for their sons during the school day on Friday. Don't wait too late, as other groups may also seek to rent snowshoes which cannot be reserved in advance. Usually, personal boots are worn with the snowshoes. If desired, you can go into Bergs and be sized for an additional snow boot rental of five dollars.

Wednesday, January 20, 2016, Wesley Church

7:00 Troop Meeting. Departure meeting for Mt. Bachelor Ski Trip. A list of things to bring will be provided. We will go over times and schedule for the entire weekend both for transport and at the mountain each day. Lodging will be assigned in the Quelah Condos at Sunriver with at least two house parents volunteering for each condo. Cindy Davis will take medicals for those without one on file as we must have medical history, insurance information, and consent to treat. A list of cell phones will also be taken, copied, and distributed. TJ Barber will organize the walkie-talkies. The buddy system will be explained. Tony Kaperick will instruct on the rest of the Snow Sports Merit Badge requirements; blue cards will be issued to those Scouts going for the merit badge and the troop now has four additional merit badge books which may be checked out by Scouts desiring to read up on Snow Sports. We will have a break out by ability groups for team building.

The financials: The troop provides the food and lodging for all. The troop pays for a lesson for every Scout and half the cost of the Scout's two day lift ticket. The participating Scout pays the other half of the two day lift ticket from his Scout Activity Allowance. The lift ticket is complimentary to adult drivers. Adult non-drivers and siblings must pay the cost of their lift tickets. They can be included in the troop group at the group rates, if they pay in advance to Tony Reyneke on Wednesday evening, so bring your check book if this applies. The troop must place and pay for its group order first thing Thursday morning. We really must have all additions and cancellations on Wednesday evening. (Group lift tickets for non-drivers and siblings: adult (19-64): $62. one day, $119. two days; teen (13-18): $51. & $99.; youth (6-12): $37. & $73.)

The equipment: Each person going with the group is expected to have and wear a helmet. Participants must provide their own ski or snow board equipment or rent the same at personal expense with the helmet. This is available in Eugene at favorable rates at Berg's. Go to Berg's NOW to reserve and be sized. Berg's will give you a $5. discount if you mention that you are with Troop 100 and rent a complete ski or snow board package with a helmet. Sorry, partial rentals do not get the discount. Each person must pick up and return their rental and be responsible for any loss or damage. When picking up, be sure Berg's puts tape on your rental and boots and WRITES YOUR LAST NAME ON THE TAPE so that equipment can be sorted at the mountain and on return. To be clear, these are personal rentals, not troop rentals. The troop is not picking up or returning the equipment. (The Parent Committee has agreed that the troop will pay for the food on ski trips as a set off for the personal cost of the rentals.)

Signup continues for the Merit Badge Fair (which can be also be done at home online) and for the 106th Anniversary Pot Luck Dinner - at this time only 9 of the 16 dutch oven dinners needed for the "pot" luck dutch oven dinner are covered. Senior Scouts are asked to volunteer to support the Scouts who have already volunteered!

7:45 p.m. Venture Scout Break out - Zion Trip

Thursday, January 21, 2016 - The monthly Parent Committee has been set over until Wednesday, January 27th during the troop meeting from 7:15 p.m. - 8:00 p.m. Be sure and come as we look to the trail ahead!

Friday-Sunday, January 22-24, 2016, Mt. Bachelor Ski Trip

The group troop departure will be from Wesley Church at 6:00 p.m on Friday, January 22nd. Expect winter driving conditions. Eat before you go or bring a sack dinner for the way over. Lodging will be in five (or more if the signup continues) Quelah Condominiums in Sunriver with at least two house parents volunteering for each condo. The Akers have volunteered to do the shopping and there will be a food box and likely a cooler for each condo for the house parents to transport for the weekend. Lunches for Saturday (and later Sunday) will be made by all in one of the condos on arrival. Lodging in each condo will be assigned Wednesday evening and on arrival you will go directly to the Quelah Condos this year as Rush will be on property in advance and all check ins will have been done with property managers. Lodging is restricted to eight persons per condo, but due to the more limited number of beds in each unit, Scouts are asked to bring sleeping bags, air mattress, and pillow. Each Scout will take a lesson at their ability group on Saturday and safety rules will be reviewed.
