Communications Merit Badge Requirement 5 and more

posted by Max Vogel

The following is directed towards those in Communications Merit Badge with Mr. Walters

Hi guys,

We had discussed going to the stillwater school board meeting tomorrow evening, 8.27.  I however, will not be able to make it.

I'm encouraging each of you to go anyway and take the required notes in your worksheet.  I'll review these next tuesday.  The meeting is at 6:30.  Go to the stillwater schools web site for information.
Speaking of which... we'll meet Tuesday, 9/1 at 5:30 in my garage again.

Travis has agreed to give his five minute persuasive speech and Tony has also agreed to show us his web page.

There are several other requirements that you can do without the group.  Plan on getting at least one done by next tuesday so I can review and keep you moving forward.

See you next Tuesday.

Archery

Dear Troop 113 Scouts and Parents,

Next week the troop is scheduled to go to Bwana Archery in Saint Paul (previous plan was A-1 in Hudson).  Fifteen (15) participants are needed in order for this event to occur, and at this point there are not enough participants signed up (permission slips were due last week).  We are still hoping that this event can occur.  Please respond to myself, and Sean Flaherty (sean.flaherty@vikingsprinkler.us) by this Friday morning if you will be attending. I have attached a copy of the permission slip previously sent with an edition of the Totem Pole.  All Scouts attending must have already turned in a permission slip, or bring it with them next Tuesday to attend. 


Yours in Scouting,

Scott L. Vlasak

Raceway To Fun

Please find attached a permission slip for Troop 113's upcoming afternoon event on August 15.  The Troop will be going to Raceway to Fun in Newport, MN, since the previously planned trip was rained out.  Please see the permission slip for details.  Additionally, we have a couple parents who have volunteered to transport Scouts for this event, but may need additional volunteers.

Yours in Scouting,

Scott L. Vlasak

Dane's Place Pig Roast Service Opportunity

posted Jun 24, 2015, 11:29 AM by Max Vogel

Troop 113,

Bethlehem Lutheran Church has their annual Dane’s Place Pig Roast this Saturday, June 27th.  I am looking for 6 scouts to assist with set-up for the event at 9:30 AM and 6 scouts to assist with clean-up at 5:00 PM.  This is a great opportunity for us to provide some support for our charter organization and to thank them for supporting our troop.  All of your volunteer hours will count toward service hours required for rank advancement too.  Please let me know if you are interested in helping by either replying to this email, calling me at (651) 755-3906 or talking to me at tonight’s troop meeting.  Thank you in advance for your help!

Canadian Adventure Reminders

posted Jun 13, 2015, 1:27 PM by Max Vogel

Canadian Adventurers-

I have a few last-minute reminders regarding next week’s Canada Adventure:

 

1)      If you have not already given me your passport (not just a copy – the real passport), please make sure you have it with you Monday morning.  I will be collecting         them.  You must have it to get into Canada and back into the USA.  All copies I collected will be left with Jon Nowaczek in the US just in case we lose any documentation or need assistance at the border.

2)      You must be wearing your Class A for travel.

3)      Pack for any type of weather – temperatures will range from 40’s to 70’s and rain is in the forecast.

4)      You may bring fishing gear.

5)      Ticks are especially bad this year, so I suggest some DEET or Permethrin for your clothes.

6)      All parents dropping off scouts, please see me for one final signature before leaving.  I have a consolidated list of all scouts and their parent’s signature authorizing the Troop to take their son to Canada.  This document should speed up our border crossing.

7)      Plan to arrive at the Scout Building at 7:00 AM on Monday the 15th.  We plan to arrive back at the Scout Building between 7:00 PM and 9:00 PM on Saturday, June 20th.

 

Please let me know if you have any questions.  I’m looking forward to a great trip!  See you all on Monday!

Thanks,

Sean
