Posted on Jan 9 2017 - 3:24am

Monday, January 9, 2017, Scout Service Center, 2525 MLK, Jr. Blvd., Eugene

5:30 p.m. Monthly PLC Meeting with dinner for junior leaders and interested Scouts First Class and above in rank. Planning for coming troop meetings and activities.

Wednesday, January 11, 2017, Wesley Church

7:00 p.m. Troop Meeting - Merit Badge Fair Instruction and Registration

Final decisions will also be made at the January 11th Troop Meeting for our Snowshoe Trip to Crater Lake National Park with overnight Saturday January 14th at the Crater Lake Resort, 50711 OR-62, Chiloquin/Fort Klamath, Oregon and return on Sunday, January 15th. Our signup has reached 35 (22 youth and 13 adults). Scouts will lodge overnight in the camp's Hamilton Hall where there is a fireplace/space heater, but concrete floor, so sleeping pads or air mattresses should be brought. At least five cabins (with the restrooms for all) will be staffed by adults and some family, with details at the troop meeting. Adult drivers should have four wheel drive or front wheel drive vehicles and chains. Crater Lake Resort is eight miles from the Park's south entrance plus the distance to the Visitor's Center and up to the rim for the snowshoe. (The road to the rim from the VIsitor's Center was recently closed due to conditions, but the Park Service is working overtime to reopen it as soon as possible.) At the meeting there will be a brief review of last week's cold weather clothing instruction and we will conclude the troop swap meet for those who would like to sell, trade, or just pass down out grown winter clothing. Our growing Troop Lost and Found, which includes cold weather clothing, will once again be on display. Due to the distance and winter driving conditions, we will be taking minimum gear and this will be a troop cook for dinner on Saturday, January 14 and breakfast on Sunday, January 15th, at a very reasonable charge to be announced before departure on Saturday, January 14th. Don't forget to bring your own sack lunch for Saturday!

Rental snowshoes for the trip can be reserved at Berg's Ski Shop, 367 13th Avenue, Eugene. These will be individual rentals paid by you individually at personal expense, but charged at the arranged group rate of $5. for members of the Troop 100 Group. Scouts may go in any time now in advance with a parent to reserve, be sized, pay, and for the parent to sign the required release at Berg's. Snowshoe rentals need to be picked up at Berg's on Friday, January 13th - the earlier the better to avoid the late afternoon crowd, so between 10 a.m. and 12 noon is suggested for your convenience. Returns must be made on return from the trip on Sunday, January 15th before the 5:00 p.m. closing at Berg's. The general public rate is usually $10. per day, so the $5. total charge for the weekend is a group discounted charge. (Should there be any confusion recognizing the group Troop 100 arrangement at Berg's, indicate this is on file and ask to speak with supervisor Ryan Fickenscher who handles group rentals for those not using their ski bus.)

7:45 p.m. Venture Scout Breakout

Thursday, January 5, 2017, LDS Church, 550 North Danebo, Eugene

7:00 p.m. Greenwood District Adult Leader's Roundtable. After the General Assembly of all adult leaders (usually a Model Friends of Scouting Presentation at the January meeting), the Boy Scout Leader break out session this month will focus on the Principles of Tread Lightly, new First Class Scout requirement 1.b. in the 13th edition of the Scout Handbook.

The Trail Ahead -

All Scouts are reminded that the transition year has concluded and effective January 1, 2017; all Boy Scout rank advancement is under the new requirements set forth in the 13th Edition of the Boy Scout Handbook. If you continue to work from the 12th Edition, the troop has prepared an insert of the new requirements that will continue to be available to you at troop meetings. Adult leaders will make conversions from the old records in the 12th Edition to the 13th Edition or the new requirements insert.

Scouts who have not already registered for the Greenwood District Merit Badge - sponsored by Troop 100 - set for February 11th at the LDS Church, 3500 West 18th Street, Eugene from 9-5; should do so immediately while space may remain in merit badge classes they are seeking. Go to the troop website, click on Merit Badge Fair in the menu on the left hand side of the home page and proceed. The troop strong encourages all Scouts to sign up for at least two merit badge classes. (We have have 52 Scouts in the troop and only 19 have registered for the Merit Badge Fair so far - lets register and get ready!)
