Pancake Breadfast Fundraiser

Our pancake breakfast will be Sunday morning Oct 30th.  This and the spaghetti dinner are the two fundraising events Troop 850 hosts to raise money to support the troops many activities.  Thanks to Kelly Reupert’s leadership the basket raffle at these events continute to be large portion of the proceeds!

I would like to ask everyone to consider asking your employer for a donation to support this upcoming fundraiser.  Kelly is a master at crafting unique baskets – whether it’s cash, gift cards, merchandise donations or sporting event tickets she always creates the perfect basket for any occassion.  We will have donor recognition posters displayed recognizing and thanking all donors.

Another option to consider is cashing in any “reward” points you may have on a frequently used credit card.  Gift cards for local stores, restaurants, and other rewards would be most welcome.

Upon request all donors will receive a letter recognizing the donation for tax purposes if they so desire.

Please contact Chip Branscum at cbranscum@fuse.net or Kelly Reupert at kaykaytenten@yahoo.com if you have questions or would like additional information.  Early donations are most appreciated to give more time for Kelly’s creativity in creating baskets.

Thanks in advance for your support!

No Troop Meeting & Festival Reminder

There is no Troop meeting Tuesday 8/23 because of Festival week. 

A reminder that all Troop 850 Scouts are expected to help setup tables and chairs for the Parish Festival on Thursday August 25th from 6:00 pm to approximately 8:00 pm.  Pizza will then be served.  Also, for those Scouts not yet in school, Festival Take Down begins at 8:00 am Monday August 29th and goes until around noon or 1:00 with lunch provided. 

Wear yellow Class B shirts both days.

A Scout needs permission from Mr. Rottmueller if he is unable to participate in either of these events.  These will count as Troop activities to satisfy requirements for 2nd and 1st class ranks.  Also, credit for service hours will be rewarded to satisfy requirements for 2nd Class and Star ranks.

Hi-Adventure

OK – for inquiring minds…Bahamas are located approximately 76 degrees W latitude and 24 degrees, 15′ North longitude.  Current conditions are 2-4′ seas with a nice high pressure system keeping weather most pleasant.  Our first night upon arrival we have a new moon so it should be pretty dark out.  Highs in the mid to upper 80’s and lows in the upper 70’s.

Summer Camp Powhatan Photos

OK – I have 400+ photos from summer camp on a DVD – I can’t upload them to the website as there are too many.  I will have a few discs at the next scout meeting for scouts to take home, copy, download, and share.  If you would for-sure like your own disc please email Chip Branscum and I’ll trade you a disc for a dollar.

July Campout – Canoe Trip in Brookville, IN

Swimming Merit Badge

Swimming merit badge is one of the required badges for Eagle. It is also a necessary building block for taking other merit badges such as Lifesaving, and it is a prerequisite for anyone who wishes to participate in one of the water-related high adventure trips–kayaking the New River, canoing in Minnesota, or scuba diving. We recomend that all new Scouts make every effort to earn this badge their first summer in the Troop, usually at summer camp. This year, however, new Scouts are unable to take both their Tenderfoot to First Class advancement classes and Swimming merit badge. So, Chas Hertlein will be offering the merit badge to interested Scouts over the course of this summer, mostly on Tuesday nights during regular meeting times. In order to schedule the classes, I need to know as soon as possible exactly which Scouts will want to earn this merit badge. So please drop me an email or give me a call to let me know!
