All Scouts must be in uniform and bring blue cards signed by the Scoutmaster, a sack lunch and worksheets for any badge they wish to work on (worksheets can be downloaded here).

How to Sign Up: This event does not require pre-registration but we would like to coordinate carpooling. If you are interested in attending this event and would like to carpool, please respond to the electronic invitation that was sent on 11/12/12 and post a comment to indicate whether you can drive (visit the event website if you did not receive an electronic invitation).

Queen Anne Helpline Tree Lot (11/23/12)

What: The Troop's annual Christmas tree lot to support Queen Anne Helpline is just around the corner. On the Friday after Thanksgiving, the entire Troop (Scouts and adults) sets up the lot and unloads trees in preparation for sales that start on Saturday.

How to Sign Up: Sign-ups began at the Parent Social and a current schedule can be found here. Please sign up for four shifts: two weekend shifts and two weekday shifts. A typical shift includes a Scout and a parent. For families that have two Scouts in the Troop, the Troop asks that the younger Scout and adult work together and the older Scout signs up for his own shifts. Please also try to select shifts where the Troop has not met the needed number shown in the far right column. After you have selected your shifts, email your selections to Jeff.

Geology Merit Badge Day at the Burke Museum (12/1/12)

Up to 25 Scouts can sign up for each slot, and the badge takes 2-3 hours to finish. Scouts will receive a booklet to keep track of the requirements.

Summer Camp at Camp Parsons (7/6/13 - 7/13/13)

What: The Troop will go to Summer Camp at Camp Parsons from 7/6/13 to 7/13/13. In 2012 a number of Scouts were unable to come to camp with us because the camp filled up before everyone was able to register. In order to avoid the same issue this year, we want to get all of our registrations complete in early January so we have time to work out any space issues.

How to Sign Up: Complete an Outing Participation Sheet and hand it in with the outing fee to the outing leader before the sign-up deadline.

Yosemite National Park (8/17/13 - 8/26/13)

What: In order for the troop to be able to go to Yosemite, the outing leaders will need to make reservations early; and in order to make reservations, they will need a headcount for the number of scouts who plan to participate; and in order to establish this headcount, the Troop asks for everyone who is interested in participating on the Yosemite trip to submit a $100 down payment prior to 12/17/12 (It is estimated that the trip will cost between $300 and 350 per person).
