This Week at Troop 100

Posted on Aug 25 2015 - 11:58am

Wednesday, August 26, 2015, Wesley Church

7:00 p.m. Troop Meeting - Boards of Review for the Court of Honor on September 9th. PLC Scout Skills Training: Basic Scout Knots for newer Scouts, First Class Lashings for more experienced Scouts, and Rope splices (taught by Ed & Ken) for senior Scouts. Sign up continues for our camp out to the Oregon Coast this weekend with camping at the Vitus Site in Camp Baker. Equipment loading for this weekend's trip.

Camping Note: After much consideration, the troop has reserved complimentary camping in the Jim Vitus Site at Camp Baker for this coming weekend. The site lodges 32 in eight adirondacks and has a new large central shelter, which can be supplemented with tents for our signup of at least 40. The troop can enjoy the day use areas at the lake and dunes in nearby Honeyman State Park and other natural areas. At last Thursday's Parent Meeting, after considering the options, the Committee asked that this weekend's trip to Crater Lake be changed to a campground on the Oregon Coast on the same dates for two nights of camping. Although Crater Lake National Park remains open at the south entrance; there is nearby wild fire, road closures, and smoke which has filled the caldera of Crater Lake with haze. On Sunday, Jody and I went to the coast to escape the smoke and haze here in Eugene and personally met with the campground hosts at a site favored by the committee, viewing the first come/first served availability and the first come/first served availability at some other campgrounds in the Florence area. Since Friday I have worked unsuccessfully with Reserve America to locate an open group site that can accommodate our troop or open and relatively adjacent individual sites that can accommodate our troop that can be reserved. At this late summer date before Labor Day, there is just not much available that can be reserved in federal or state campgrounds on the Oregon Coast for the weekend. Finding enough relatively adjacent first come/first served sites for the troop on Friday would likely be problematic based on campground host reports and personally witnessing the very few open sites scattered in campgrounds on Sunday evening. The trip to Camp Baker and the coast should give us cooler temperatures, fresh air, and - with luck - a little rain!

Friday-Sunday, August 28-30, 2015, Oregon Coast Trip with camping at Camp Baker

6:00 p.m. Meet at Wesley Church for a 6 p.m. departure for the Oregon Coast and Camp Baker. Eat before you go, bring a sack dinner, or a little money for fast food on the way. Bring a jacket for cooler temperatures and rain gear - just in case. We will be hiking into the Jim Vitus Site, so have your personal gear in a backpack or duffle bag ready to carry into camp. This trip will be a "troop cook" to make use of extra troop stores from the summer, so the cost for food per person is set at just $5. We plan to make use of the nearby day use areas at Honeyman State Park for boating, swimming, fishing, sand dunes, kite flying and so forth!

The Redwoods planning group asks that signup and any cancellations for the Redwoods Adventure Camp be completed by the close of the troop meeting this week in order to complete planning. All participants must have a completed BSA medical form, current within the year, on file with the troop; as the camp exceeds 72 hours. Participation in the kayaking requires completion of the BSA Swimmer Test - First Class Scout Requirement 9.b. If you plan to kayak and this is not yet signednin your Scout Handbook, go to a local pool before the trip to complete the requirement and have your book signed if you successfully complete by a Lifeguard.  Adults attending are asked to go to www.myscouting.org,enter your codes or set up an account, and complete Safe Swim Swim Defense and Safety Afloat Training. Please print out your completion certificates and bring them in so your training can noted in the application for a tour permit. At the meeting we will have a packing list for the Redwoods Adventure Camp. The final trip budget will be presented with the cost per person (expected to be less than $200.)  and Tony Reyneke will individually review with you the amount you may owe, after the 50% payment by the troop and application of any amount remaining in your 2015 Scout Activity Allowance toward the balance. In cases of hardship when all Scout Activity Allowance funds have been used, a Campership may be considered on request from the Ron Neckels Trust. 

Signup begins this week for the last camping trip of the summer to Crater Lake, August 28-30. If you plan to go, please signup this week, so you are included in the initial request for reservations for the Crater Lake Boat Tour with a three hour stop on Wizard Island to hike to the top of the island. When signing up for this trip, adults should bear in mind that taking the lake tour requires walking down the 1.1 mile Cleetwood Trail to the lake shore and climbing back up at the conclusion of the lake tour, a hike said to be similar to climbing 70 flights of stairs.
