Philmont Training

posted May 19, 2016, 9:56 PM by Max Vogel

Hey crew,

Awesome job at Duluth, hope your legs are not too sore. We will be having Philmont training this Sunday at 4:00.  Please be at Dennis' house a little before 4:00 so we can leave promptly at 4:00. We will be hiking at Afton State park and continuing to scout it out for our July campout. Hope to see everyone there with an appropriate amount of weight in their packs!! Please let me know if you can attend.

Wild Mountain Campout Canceled

Troop 113,

Regrettably, we will be cancelling the Wild Mountain Campout scheduled for June 3-5.  We have been unable to get enough adult assistance to make the trip happen.  We have rescheduled the campout for August 19-21.  A new permission slip will be sent out in July.  Please feel free to contact me at (651) 755-3906 with any questions.

Thank you,

Philmont Medical Forms and Merit Badges

posted May 15, 2016, 4:49 PM by Max Vogel   [ updated May 15, 2016, 4:50 PM ]

Philmont Crew,

Attached to this email are the required medical forms for our Philmont trip.  Please plan on having two copies of these forms completely filled out and turned into the troop.  We will be meeting as a crew during the May 31st troop meeting.  Please plan on having your forms turned in by the end of that meeting.  If you are unable to complete Part C (pre participation physical) by that day, please turn it in as soon as possible.

As a crew we have decided to work on both Backpacking and Hiking merit badge.  In order to take part in the merit badges, you must print both of the workbooks which are attached below.

If you have any questions please feel free to contact Tony (our crew leader) or any other adult participating in the trek.

Yours in Scouting

June Campouts

posted May 12, 2016, 10:26 PM by Max Vogel   [ updated May 18, 2016, 7:01 PM ]

Troop 113,

Attached are two permission slips for our upcoming campouts on June 3-5, 2016.  The reason there are two permission slips is that the Troop will be splitting up for the June campout weekend.


Scouts attending Philmont this August will be doing a “shake-down” campout on the Superior Hiking Trail near Finland, MN.  This is a mandatory campout for those attending Philmont.  We will be camping at the Finland Campground on Friday night and on the Superior Hiking Trail on Saturday night.


(Wild Mountain Trip Canceled due to a lack of adult attendees)

All other Scouts are going to be camping at Wild River State Park in Taylors Falls on Friday and Saturday.  They will be spending the day Saturday at the waterpark, alpine slides and go-karts at the amusement center at Wild Mountain! 


We will need at least 2 adults to attend the Wild Mountain campout, so please let me know if you are interested.  We have done this campout in the past and it is always a blast!  You can email or call me with any questions or to volunteer.   (Trip Canceled)




Resources for Philmont Participants

posted May 10, 2016, 7:10 PM by Max Vogel

Philmont Crew,

Attached to this email is the official Philmont packing list.  Please ensure that you have all of the Items on the list.  A new page has been added to the troop’s website that is solely dedicated towards our trek.  On this page you will find all of the Philmont Provided preparation materials and several other useful resources.  One resource I recommend using is the REI backpacking list.  It has all of the Philmont required gear and links to a list of the top recommend products for each item category.  You will also find all of the Philmont provided preparation videos and several other playlists containing extremely useful information to help prepare yourself for the trek.  I recommend everyone looks over all of the information on this page to help make our training events more successful.  If you have any questions please feel free to contact Tony (our crew leader) or any other adult participating in the trek.  Remember, you should be packing everything that you will be bringing to Philmont for this weekend’s campout.

Yours in Scouting

Scouts and Parents of Troop 113,

Over the past few months there has been some confusion on which troop calendar contains the accurate events.  The updated calendar containing the accurate events is titled “Bayport Troop 113”.  Not to be confused with the formerly used calendar “Bayport Troop 113 Meetings and Events”.  Below are several links that can be used to view and link the calendar to your personal device.  If you have any questions on how to unlink the old calendar or relink the new calendar, just ask me at a troop meeting or send me an email.

Calendar on Troop Website:  
Direct Link to Google Calendar:  

To add the calendar to a personal device:

On Your Computer
1.  Click the following link and sign in with a valid Google Account
