Congratulations To Eagle Scouts Sean and Matthew

Congratulation to Sean Jesse and Matthew Westerhaus for earning the rank of Eagle.

They will formally be recognized at the Fall Court of Honor on Tuesday, September 25th.

September 25 - Court of Honor at Chanhassen Elementary

The fall Court of Honor (COH) will be held at Chanhassen Elementary at 6:30. Scouts must be in full uniform with sash. Families, friends and local Cub Scouts are all invited.

 

September 27 - Bobcat Adventure Night with local Cub Scouts

As a service to the local Cub Scout Packs, we host a Bobcat night each fall. Boy Scouts will run stations allowing the Cub Scouts to complete most requirements for their joining rank of Bobcat.

Meet at 6:50 for set-up and instructions, event runs from 7:00 to 8:00 then 10 minutes for cleanup. Scouts need to be in uniform (tan shirt, solid color non-athletic shorts, troop neckerchief and slide). You will earn service time that can be used for rank advancement.

The stations are already designed and have complete instructions, no prep work is required. These are the very similar to the ones you went through when you joined Cub Scouts!

October 9 - Troop Meeting with Citizenship and Chess Merit Badges

This regular Tuesday troop meeting at Chanhassen Elementary will be divided into two groups. One group for the Eagle required Citizenship in the Community  merit badge and the other for Chess merit badge.

Please come prepared with any partials you have from prior sessions.

Oct 16 - FMSC in Chanhassen

Note that this replaces our regular Tuesday meeting.

Meet at Feed My Starving Children (FMSC) in Chanhassen. Families are also invited, just add a note to your sign up on Teamsnap indicating how many people you will be bringing with you.

FMSC does not allow jewelry or neckerchiefs so wear your favorite troop t-shirt.

Oct. 27 10:00am Adopt-A-Road Cleanup

Every fall and spring, Troop 330 picks up the roadside along a stretch of Galpin Road. Scouts should dress for the weather (rain or shine) and wear old shoes or boots.  You do not need to wear your tan uniform shirt.  Gloves, trash bags and high visibility jackets are provided.

 

Fall District Camporee Sept 21-23

The Lake Minnetonka Fall Western Horse themed fall camporee just announced a new date — September 21-23, 2018.  Same activities.

While the horse ride is at camporee, it is an add-on activity with limited numbers of spots and an additional cost.

Please update TeamSnap ASAP.  Spots are filling up so register now.

 

October 13 - 14: Bike Campout at Lake Zumbra

Our annual bike ride and campout at Lake Zumbra. Everyone meets to drop off all gear, we do not cart the camping stuff on our bikes.

Scouts working on the cycling merit badge can continue the ride after we get to camp.  We will also be geocaching.

Let Mr. Jesse know if you would like to be your patrol cook.

Wreath Fundraiser

The flyers and handouts for the fall wreath sales will be available at the first few troop meetings and COH.  Scouts in full uniform can go door-to-door for sales.

The net proceeds from the wreath sales go to your scout account, the troop does not take a percentage. These funds can be used to pay your annual troop membership which is due in December. The funds can also be used to attend weekend camps, summer camp or high adventure.

You will need to turn in your total order and checks (no cash) at the October 23 Troop Meeting, no late orders will be accepted. The wreaths will be available for pick up on Tuesday November 13th.

Dining Fly Rental

Families can rent the Troop 330 dining flies for events such as Eagle, graduation or confirmation parties. The very reasonably priced rental includes set-up and take-down by a team of friendly scouts.  The dining flies also have sides if needed for rainy weather. All proceeds go into the troop equipment fund. Contact Mr. Jesse or Mr. Noble to reserve your dates.
