Wednesday, February 18, 2015, Wesley Church

7:00 p.m. Troop Meeting.

Scoutmaster Conferences and Boards of Review for the February 25th Court of Honor.

EDGE Scout Skill Instruction for Scouts completing Life Scout Requirements.

Venture Scout ski clothing and equipment demonstration. A ski movie and a small swap meet of ski clothing will be offered by the Venture Scouts as the ski trip signup is finalized, so bring ski stuff you have outgrown and would like to sell, trade or give away! The troop is providing the lodging and food for all participants.

For Scouts, the troop pays the cost of a ski or snowboard lesson and 50% of each day's lift ticket; with the balance for the lift tickets covered by the Scout's annual activity allowance. (The treasurer will notify your family and accept payment if you did not qualify for the 2015 Scout Activity Allowance or consider financial assistance from the Ron Neckels Trust Fund in an appropriate case.) The troop will pay one day's lift ticket for adult drivers and adults driving who do not ski may request reimbursement for gas through the treasurer. (If you are driving, please advise Tom Akers at tpakers@juno.com, for planning.) Siblings are welcome, but must pay the full cost of their lift tickets. This year's published daily lift ticket prices are: Adult (19-64): $79., Teen (13-18): $67., and Youth (6-12) $47. (The unpublished group rates (20 or more) are being sought, but the group sales office has thus far been non-responsive and in any event requires payment three days in advance for lift tickets with no refunds.) All participants must rent (such as Berg's) or provide their own ski or snowboard equipment and a helmet. All participants must have a BSA Medical Form on file with the troop completed at least through the sections providing insurance information, permission to treat, and health history.

(Please note: This is Ash Wednesday and there will be a service in the church, so we have been asked to park on the Fellowship Hall side of the buildings.)

Parent Committee Meeting postponed by the Chair until February 26th due to a conflict and the departure of the Ski Trip on February 20th.

Friday - Sunday, February 20-22, 2015, Mt. Bachelor Ski Trip

5:30 p.m. Begin meeting at Wesley Church for the Mt. Bachelor Ski Trip Departure. (We will get underway as soon as we have everyone or by 6 p.m.) Eat before you go, bring a sack dinner, or a little money for fast food on the way. Plan to ride with one of the chaperones for your assigned lodging condo - see the assignments in the separate email - so as to facilitate check in on arrival. To reduce the amount of personal gear in the vehicles, we will meet with each condo group Wednesday evening and determine how many sleeping bags need to be brought as all beds in the condos have sufficient bedding and blankets. When you rent your ski or snowboard equipment, be sure to rent a SKI HELMET. You MUST have your HELMET with you in the parking lot on departure if you plan to ski or snowboard this weekend!

Mt Bachelor Ski Trip information

CORRECTION TO PAYMENT INFORMATION:

The Troop pays for 1 ski lesson, and HALF of the 1st days lift ticket.

Sorry for the error.

Tom

Leaving Wesley on next Friday, 2/20. (No I don't know what time yet - we will let you know)

Ski and Snowboard rentals will be at Bergs Ski Shop at 367 W 13th Ave, Eugene OR.
Cost is Adult ski package $10, Snowboard package $15. The second day is about $5 or so.

A MANDATORY ski helmet is $3. If you aren't wearing a ski helmet you will not be skiing with the Troop. Adults and Scouts - no exceptions.

Since we are actually skiing only 2 days, you will be charged for just two days of rental.

You can show up and get fitted anytime before Thursday or you can show up Thursday and get fitted and pick up your gear.
The parents will have to sign a waiver etc for Bergs. Also for Snowboards there is a deposit expected, however they said as long as they have a credit card number that will suffice they will not charge a deposit (unless of course you lose/damage the gear).

You will need to pay for the rental when you pick up your equipment. Depending on return to Eugene, one person could bring it all back to Bergs after the trip.

Food, lodging, and Saturday's lift ticket and lessons will be paid for the by Troop.

If you ski a second day (Sunday) you will need to pay the lift ticket.

All in all, this is a pretty cheap ski trip.

For those adults who are driving please email takers@juno.com with the number of scouts you can take in your vehicle.

I have: Rush Hoag 3 or 4, Yancy Souther +2, Letitia Garcin +2 (own scouts +# additional seats)

Thanks!

Our 105th Scout Anniversary Week Pot Luck Dinner is this Wednesday evening, February 4th with pot luck items arriving beginning at 6:00 p.m. and dinner being served at 6:30 p.m. Whether or not you were able to sign the potluck sign up in advance, the PLC asks that last names of A-O bring a main dish and that P-Z bring a side dish or salad. A volunteer is bringing dinner rolls and the troop will provide beverages and desserts. Your pot luck dish may - but need not be - a dutch oven entree. After school on February 4th beginning at about 3:30 p.m. there will be a small dutch oven group at the church should anyone want to come over and join in with the preparation of a dutch oven entree.

Scouts are expected in uniform with neckerchief and slide and merit badge sash - if they have one - for the annual troop photograph.

He has twice won the National Society of Newspaper Columnists’s highest award for writing and is the author of 19 books. In 2011, he hiked the 452-mile Oregon portion of the Pacific Crest Trail, resulting in his book “Cascade Summer" and last summer hiked 190 miles of the John Muir Trail in California for a soon-to-be-released e-book on the adventure. Welch’s Beachside Writers Workshop, which began in Yachats, celebrates in 10-year anniversary this month. This November 5th and 6th, he will put on his second “Evening With Bob Welch & Friends” event at the Hult Center.
