Winter Court of Honor

Posted on Jan 23 2015 - 4:13pm
Troop 1001 will hold Court of Honor to recognize rank advancement and merit badge achievements on Thursday, February 5th at 7:00 pm at TBC.  This is coming right on the heels of Winter Camp when a great number of scouts have completed merit badges.  Our timeline is EXTREMELY SHORT this time.
If you have rank or merit badges which need to be recorded for this Court of Honor, please bring them Monday, January 26th to the meeting and see the Advancement Chair.  If you wait until February 2nd, it may not be possible to get it in the COH on Thursday.
If you are not able to attend the January 26th meeting and have rank or blue cards to record, you may snap a photo of them and email to advancement@Troop1001.org.  Please include both sides of the blue card.

First, a big thank you for taking time to share your skills and knowledge with the Scouts.  I saw Scouts working hard (and having fun!) on their advancement this past weekend.  

Free Heart Screen for all youth ages 12-22 - February 20th

Posted on Jan 23 2015 - 4:13pm
Sudden Cardiac Arrest (SCA) is the leading cause of death in student athletes.  Every year 10,000 young people die from SCA.  Many appear healthy and have no known family history of heart-related illness. Even though medical tests can detect the presence of heart concerns, insurance companies generally do not cover their costs without the presence of symptoms or a family history of heart problems.  See http://www.heartbeatsgala.org/education-forum/ to signup for an appointment. 

Test Patients Needed For Wilderness First Aid

Posted on Jan 23 2015 - 4:13pm
Wilderness First Aid is offered three times, in January, March, and April (see announcement below to register for the course).  Part of the course involves scenarios where the participants use their new skills in field situations.  Mr. Reisinger needs scouts and scouters to help with these scenarios.  The Saturday and Sunday sessions will be held at Prairie Creek Park.  Those who have helped with the previous courses have enjoyed the experience.

Annual Dues Update: Funds Required for Rechartering

Posted on Jan 23 2015 - 4:12pm

We are nearing the halfway point of this scouting year with a third of troop dues having been remitted. It is important that each scout and adult registering with the troop pay his or her dues, as the Recharter Committee will soon begin vetting who will be submitted on the troop's recharter.

Scouting dues are $140 and adult dues are $25. You can remit payment online or by check to the troop treasurer. We would appreciate all families to have remitted dues payment by August 31st. Thank you for your prompt attention to the troop's financial health and supporting our scouting curriculum.
