Emergency Preparedness/Hiking Campout-Nov. 11-13, Ft. Richardson SP and Lost Creek State Trailway, Jacksboro

Posted on Nov 5 2016 - 5:54pm

Sign Up Online

Permission Slip

This campout is oriented towards the Emergency Preparedness Merit Badge.  The new scouts through 1st Class will be learning First Aid in the field. The older scouts will be working on the Emergency Preparedness Merit Badge, including requirement 8b "Take part in at least one troop Mobilization."  This is not an easy requirement to complete and the troop has been working for 2 years to get everything together to complete it.  Every scout who has not completed the Emergency Prep Merit Badge and anticipates getting their Eagle in the next two years should attend this campout as there will probably not be another chance to compete this requirement for some time. This will be a fun campout for everyone.

The campout will be at historic Ft. Richardson SP  and Lost Creek State Trailway (directions).  In addition to the troop mobilization as part of the Eagle-required EPrep Merit Badge there will be a hike along the adjacent state trailway that circles Lost Creek Reservoir (map of park).

ADULTS: We will need extra help on this campout and drivers willing to commit to the 1:45 hr drive to the park. Please sign up online just as the scouts do. If you can drive, please indicate the number of seats in the 'Notes' section. If you cannot drive scouts, but are going on the campout, please also indicate this in the 'Notes' section.

Money Monday is Nov. 7. Please sign up online ahead of the meeting, bring your signed permission slip and $15 (cash, exact change) patrol food money.

Please arrive at Trinity Bible Church no later than 5:30pm for form-up on Friday, Nov.11. This will be a longer drive than usual for the troop, so we need to leave on time. Check the weather, especially overnight temperatures, so that you can BE PREPARED with appropriate clothing. Don't forget your sack dinner.

Meals for Mohns

Posted on Oct 27 2016 - 8:12pm
One of our own is in need of some temporary help. Dave Mohn's wife, Kathryn, is currently immobile as a result of two recent falls and is scheduled for knee surgery next week. They could use help with meals, so we have created a Care Calendar to facilitate that request. We would like to provide a dinner meal on Tuesdays and Thursdays until Kathryn's surgery is completed and she is back on her feet. October is taken care of, so skip to November on the care calendar.
If you have time to help, we would appreciate it! Dave and Kathryn's Care Calendar info is as follows:
To access Kathryn and Dave Mohn's CareCalendar site, visit http://www.carecalendar.org/logon/244724 and enter the following information in the appropriate spaces:
   Calendar ID   :   244724
   Security code :   9903

The instructions are self-explanatory. Thanks in advance for your help!
