Scout Advancement Program Reminder

As explained in the slide show with a handout at a meeting earlier this year, the Boy Scouts of America are now in a transition year from the old advancement requirements to a new set of requirements. Boy Scouts who registered on or after January 1, 2016 for the first time are on the new requirements in the new handbook. Boy Scouts who were previously registered may complete through First Class under the old requirements, but then must met the new requirements for Star and the higher ranks. A Scout who was working on Star Rank or higher on January 1st, may complete that next rank under the old requirements, but thereafter must complete the next higher ranks under the new requirements. Everyone will be under the new requirements on January 1, 2017. If you started the year under the old requirements, it is not necessary to purchase a new Scout Handbook when you transition to the new requirements, as there is an insert for your book that can be printed out at www.scouting.org.

Adult volunteers are needed for the daily road crew and meal planning and purchasing during the hike.

Tony Kaperick will also be at the meeting this Wednesday to present on the White Salmon River Whitewater Rafting Trip for August 20-22, 2016 and take written confirmations for the rafting reservations. The troop has reservations to camp at Hollenbeck Park Ranch, Trout Lake, Washington with rafting leaving from nearby Husum, WA on Sunday, August 21st. It is about 3.25 hours drive from Eugene to Trout Lake, WA. Participants may elect early return to Eugene after rafting on Sunday, August 21st or camp a second night and leave on Monday morning, August 22nd.

This Week in Troop 100

Posted on Jun 5 2016 - 11:19pm

Wednesday, June 8, 2016, Wesley Church

6:30 p.m. - Troop leaders will be on hand to work with New Scouts on their Scout requirements.

7:00 p.m. Troop Meeting - This week we will take further written confirmations from parents or guardians of Scouts who have signed up for Camp Parsons. Signup will also be taken for the Second Class Town Hike on Wednesday, June 22nd. The Troop will meet at Wesley Church for the opening of the meeting and then carpool to the nearby Bass Home at 996 Lariat for a special presentation by Jon Bass on Oregon's large game animals he has known, where they are preserved in a large shop. Yes, the big bear will be there. Also demonstrated will be dutch oven cooking of potatoes, which go with meals of wild game!

Summer Camp
PLEASE NOTE: If not done last week, the troop is asking parents of Scouts signed up for Camp Parsons to drop by the troop meeting this week to sign a written confirmation that their son will in fact be attending Camp Parsons so that the troop has a confirmation as we advance funds that are now due to the Seattle Pacific Council. Adults attending are also asked to sign a confirmation and indicate how many Scouts they can transport as the troop must also advance funds for adult attendance. With 37 Scouts and 13 Adults signed up we must have these confirmations as the cost to the troop and the Scout activity allowances is substantial and refunds are given for nonattendance in very limited circumstances after the troop payment has been made. Scout physical exam forms for summer camp should be turned in to Cindy Davis by the troop meeting on June 22nd. Scouts will have an opportunity to plan their advancement and merit badge programs for camp at the troop meetings on June 15th and 22nd.

Troop 100 will attend Boy Scout Summer Camp at Historic Camp Parsons on Washington's Hood Canal at Brinnon, Washington from June 26th - July 2nd. This excellent camp has been in continuous operation for 97 years and has a new dining hall! The list of things to bring and the camp program is contained in the Camp Guide at the website: www.seattlebsa.org, click Boy Scout Camping, click Camp Parsons webpage to find the Camp Guide. (The mess and utensil kits listed for the campsite meals are not needed for Troop 100 Scouts as the troop will provide coking gear and plastic/paper products.) Scouts attending will have an opportunity to plan their advancement program for the week at troop meetings as camp approaches. Only Scouts and adults registered with the BSA are permitted to stay overnight in camp. Unregistered adults planning to attend camp with the troop must take the Youth Protection Training online and submit an adult registration form through Dave Ragsdale. Siblings may not attend this camp and family pets are not permitted in camp at any time. Scouts and adults staying in camp over 72 hours must have a current signed Scout Medical Examination within 12 months of camp. The form is available from Cindy Davis at troop meetings or may be printed from the website. PLEASE BE PROACTIVE and do not put the medical examination off, as this is a BSA National Policy which cannot be waived by Troop 100 or the Camp Director. Scout policy relative to medications is explained in the Camp Guide and will be discussed at meetings.

This camp has an expansive waterfront and to make FULL use of the waterfront a Scout or adult must pass the Scout Swimmer Test: "Jump feet first into water over the head in depth. Level off and swim 75 yards in a strong manner using one or more of the following strokes: sidestroke, breaststroke, trudged, or crawl; then swim 25 yards using an easy resting backstroke. The 100 yards must be completed in one swim without stops and must include at least one sharp turn. After completing the swim, rest by floating." The water at Camp Parsons is warm and buoyant (salty) making for a easy swim, but many boys have not been trained in a resting backstroke, so it is highly recommended that parents take their sons to a pool to learn/practice the elementary backstroke prior to camp.

The out of council fee for Scouts to attend Camp Parsons this year is $355. for Scouts and $220. for adults. For Scouts, Troop 100 will pay half of the first $290. (the cost this year in council at Camp Baker) and the entire balance over $290. The Scout will pay the other half of the first $290. from his Scout Activity Allowance, which means most families will not have a balance due. Scouts may bring money for the Trading Post and merit badge materials, per the Camp Guide. The troop pays for adults, given their donations of vacation time and gasoline. Per the Guide and prior experience, this Council gives refunds in very limited circumstances after a troop's final payment, which is due May 30, 2016. If you have signed up and must cancel - Scout or adult - please advise the troop by May 30th to avoid unfortunate losses to the troop and Scout Activity Accounts.
