One place to get texts for your Troop 147 information. New text messaging service will allow the troop to text your phone with reminders, times, etc. It's a one way service so responses are not accepted. Scouts may also join. This service is used by many teachers and schools to provide communication with parents, guardians and students.

If your son is registered for A-School, you can find the equipment list, etc on this website. I sent it to everyone in the troop thinking we might have some boys NEXT year that want to attend! I'll have copies of this information with me at Monday night's parent meeting. PLEASE make sure I give you a copy. My brain is pretty frazzled this time of year, and more than usual with a kid graduating and preparing for college.

At our parents meeting next Monday night, Julie will be handing out the gear lists for this Summer Camp trip. I thought I'd send a couple of pictures out for clarification and give you a little more time to find a couple of the big items. For this year's trip they will need a footlocker AND a backpack. I've attached pictures of each of these items. The footlocker can be purchased at Academy (that's where I got the picture) and it's $35. They sell a similar version at Walmart in the Automotive Department for less money, but it's not always easy to find. The primary requirements are that it's big enough to store your Scout's stuff, it's weather resistant, it can be closed and it can be locked. No wheels! Some of us have an extra lying around from previous years and will loan them out. I have one that Jonna isn't using this Summer that I will loan out to a responsible Scout. Since it will most likely be going to A&M with her in the Fall, we do need it returned in good shape.
As for the backpack, we always have some confusion over what that really is. The one they carry to school is called a "day pack" in Scouts. That's not big enough for a backpack for this trip. They need a pack with a frame that is big enough to carry camping gear and equipment. These can be reasonably priced or very expensive. Again, we have several that we can loan out from the Troop if your Scout will need one. We need to know ASAP so we can fit them with one.
We'll cover everything else at our meeting Monday night. Parents, if you have anything you can loan to another Scout, please let me know so we can help everyone who needs it. Remember, this meeting is mandatory if your Scout is going with us to Colorado this Summer! If you have your medical forms filled out, please bring them with you that night. We will gladly answer any questions. I will have all of the Scout accounts updated. If you have a question about your Scout account before that night, give me a call.

Spring Break Campout
Leave- Friday, March 15th
We will meet at the Church at 6:30 pm
Due to the State Park getting rid of the campsites we normally use.... we are having to camp in the Primitive Area.
This means a couple things. We will not have easy access to the trailer (stove).
We will have adults with boats, that hopfully will agree to load everyone and their gear and take them to the campsites. The campsites do have lake access so this can be a fun new experience.
We can take the protable stove and camp stoves with us so no one will go hungry.
Scouts DO NEED to pack lightly just like they would if backpacking.
As new info comes available, I will let you all know.
