4/29 - 5/1 Spring Camporee

Since the location is essentially here in town, we will not be meeting at Chan Elementary, but rather will see everyone arrive directly to…
WHERE: Camp Tanadoona (located at 3300 Tanadoona Drive, Excelsior MN 55331 – which is just behind Westwood Church).
WHEN: Check-in is at 5pm, so please arrive as close to 5pm as you can.  As you should already know we are one of the host troops, so it will be better if we can assist by being their early.
WEAR: your Class A full-scout uniform.
Sam W. will be our cook this weekend – so you do not need to bring any food.
Bring weather appropriate clothes, including rain gear and coats, shoes/boots, check the packing list on the troop website (http://boyscouttroop330.org/?page_id=875).  As always the troop will have tents and cooking supplies. If you have required medicine please provide it to Mr. Jesse and he will distribute at the appropriate time.
The theme is Zombies in the woods – we have the option to bring Zombie costumes on Saturday if you so choose.  The council is offering several merit badges if you would like to participate on Saturday (note you will not fully earn any merit badge but will have a good start on it).  I will have blue cards for you to start these MBs. The options are: Signals & Codes, Weather, Medicine, Radio, Soil & Water Conservation, and Search & Rescue.  There will be some free time activities such as: Archery and GaGa Ball.  Additional info from the council can be found at: http://www.lmdbsa.org/bindoc2016/SpringCamporee2016InfoPacket.pdf
You should wear your Class B Troop T-shirt during the Saturday activities.
We will be done immediately after the Scout Service ends at 9:30 am on Sunday and you should arrange for pickup at that time.

Troop 330 – Philmont Crew in 2016!

Troop 330 has been awarded a crew spot for August 2016 in a second lottery that was held by the BSA. I have copied the pertinent trip details in terms of cost, schedule, and participants. The cost is the bare minimum as it does not include travel to and from NM, meals, gear, etc.  We need to get in front of the boys who would be 14 yrs old by 8/6/16 and see what interest there is.  They will have to commit $100 each by 1/24/15, and at least two adults will have to sign up as well.   It is time for those interested to step up, say yes and then work to make the trip a success.
