Please join us in recognizing our Scouts for their efforts this Spring and Summer at the August 2019 Court of Honor. We are back at Sucker Lake Park for a picnic dinner of Burgers and Hot Dogs with Sides and Desserts provided by our Scout Families. Please see the Flyer created by Ayden Sturgis for more details and to find a link to the Signup.

In addition, our Scouts will be presenting on their Sailing and Scuba Adventures as well as a recap of Tomahawk earlier this month.

Hot dogs, burgers, and drinks will be provided by the Troop! Please bring an item to share:

Nuclear Ducks, please sign up for desserts
Electric Blue Dragons, please sign up for desserts
Pirate, please sign up sides/salads
Dorito Dolphins, please sign up for sides/salads

Help needed Saturday Service Project

Dear Scouts and parents,
There is a service project this Saturday August 24 from 9am to 3pm. You do not have to work the whole time, it can go by shifts or if help as much as you can. There is very little help that is going on for this service project. The more the quicker and easier this project can go. If scouts and families can show up that would be awesome.

Thank you,
Stephen Johnson

Newspapers needed for Eagle project

Dear Troop 9626,
I am working on my Eagle project, I would really appreciate if I could use any spare newspapers that anyone has for my project?
My project is making the path between the priest’s house and st. Odilia. I’m clearing and planting around the path to make it look pretty. I need the newspaper for the fabric for planting because newspaper is more biodegradable and is gonna to be used as a natural weed barrier.
Thank you,
Stephen Johnson (Troop 9626)

St.Odilia Chair Cleaning Service Project Aug 24

Hello everyone,

Attached to this email is a sign up for a St.Odilia Chair Cleaning service project that will take place in the courtyard on Saturday, August 24th from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. During this service project we will be using steam cleaners to clean all of the chairs in the courtyard. This project will take a lot of hands to complete so if you and your family can help out that would be much appreciated!!

Also, IF YOU OWN A STEAM CLEANER AND WOULD BE WILLING TO LEND IT TO THE SCOUTS FOR THE DAY, THAT WOULD BE EXCELLENT!

Even if you are not able to be at the service project, we would still be able to put your steam cleaner to good use! :)

I am hoping to see many of you there to help out!!

LAST CALL for Boards of Review prior to Court of Honor

We will be conducting boards of review for rank advancement at the next troop meeting, August 12. Please let me know if your scout needs a Board of Review no later than tomorrow (Saturday, August 10) so that they can be scheduled for the evening of August 12. I appreciate your promptness given the short deadline.

Lost at Tomahawk - retainer in dark green plastic case

Sorry for the blast to everyone on this email, but am trying to ensure everyone who went to Tomahawk receives it.

Dante misplaced his retainer while at Tomahawk. He thinks he left it in his tent, but he has gone through the tent and does not have it. If anyone has or has seen a dark green plastic retainer case (hopefully with retainer inside) with Dante Donato's name and address on a sticker on the outside, please let me know.

thanks!

Tomahawk Recap With Your Scout

Greetings Parents,

Now that the dust has settled from camp, we want to check in and see if your scout had a good week. They all grew stronger and more self confident as the week went on and we are very proud of them. They were stellar examples of the Scout Oath and Law.

Sometimes after camp, issues come out to parents that the adult leaders were unaware of. Please check with your scout to see if any issues or problems that were not addressed or might not have come to the attention of the adult leadership.

Mrs. Rafter and I value all feed back to make both of our troops the best they can be.

Yours In Scouting,

Paul Blincow

Back from Tomahawk Notes – Committee Meeting Monday in the Blincow family back yard at 7pm

Hello Troop families. We’re only just back from Tomahawk and now need to look ahead to our busy Fall season planning. I’ve tried to put as much info into one email so as not to bombard with multiple messages, so please scan this whole list for items that affect your scout.

Post Tomahawk items
If you have a Troop tent and/or a tarp, please click this link and follow the directions for care and cleaning of those items. (http://www.scouting626.com/camping/troop-tent-instructions) We had a dry late week, so moisture should not be a challenge, but tents should be setup and swept out and then re-assembled, checking for all needed parts. There are now tags on the tent bags with a checklist of the items that should be included. Before returning the tent, please fill out the form on the website and provide information about the state of the tent you have. If the number on the bag does not match the number on the tent, please let us know that as well. Return the tent at any Scout activity before the end of the month, please. (http://www.scouting626.com/camping/tent-check-in-form)

Tie Dye Shirts – If your scout came back with a white T-shirt in a plastic bag, they made a Tie Dye Troop shirt at camp. It will need to be rinsed and dried properly. I've linked instructions for how to care for the shirt for the first time. https://www.wikihow.com/Wash-Tie-Dyed-Fabric

You may find items you don’t recognize or are missing. Belongings get left everywhere or can be picked up by others accidentally. Please wash and return any items you don’t recognize. There were a number of personal items left behind at St. Os on Saturday. They are in one of the trailers and will be on display at the next Troop meeting.
Please speak with your scout about their experiences at camp. With 40 Scouts and a handful of adults, we can’t be everywhere at all times. If your Scout shares any experiences that create questions or concerns in your mind, please share them with us as leaders. We want to know their and your feedback.

The Troop Court of Honor is coming up on August 26th. Awards earned throughout the Summer and at camp will be awarded that night. More details to follow, soon. If your Scout did not complete their Merit Badges or have some last items to complete with regard to rank, there is a short window to complete them in time for awarding this month. We will host Boards of Review on Aug 12th for any needing them. After that night our Scouts and adults will begin preparing for the award ceremony so any awards submitted after that night may not be awarded in August. Many 1st year Scouts have Second Class requirements for Earning and Saving money and tracking physical activity that must be done at home. If you have questions, please reach out to one of the Scoutmasters.

Adult Committee and Parent Meeting on Monday night, Aug. 5th
Due to scheduling conflicts with many of our youth leaders, their PLC planning meeting happened on the drive back from camp. So, there is NO youth PLC meeting on Monday, Aug 5th. Parents and Adult Leaders are invited to attend our planning meeting in the Blincow back yard beginning at 7pm with a social event to follow. Bring a lawn chair and any beverages you wish to have or share. No children, please. The address is 2910 Hamline Ave N. in Roseville. It is the same home that wreaths were picked up the past 2 years.

A key focus for this month’s meeting is planning for the St. Odilia Fall Festival as well as our Fall Fundraiser. Your input and feedback are greatly appreciated.
For adult leaders with a position of responsibility, please complete the "Monthly Committee Check-In Form" by Monday night even if you cannot attend the meeting this month. (https://docs.google.com/forms/d/1wk8XQxkvm1IjCOyfmQEmEbIGAFY1-LchBdl5HZz-dWs/edit). This form will be our working "source of truth" for all who cannot attend the meetings. It will also give you the chance to give a report out if you are unable to attend.

Thank you all for a great Tomahawk week! Thank you for sharing your Scout with us and allowing us to give them a great experience. Thank you to the parents who visited and provided transportation. Thank you to the adult leaders who gave of their time to provide great, unique experiences that only Summer camp can provide.

Mike Bailey on behalf of the Troops and Crew Committee
