School Board Meeting Trip Info

Good morning Troop,
This message pertains to those who will be attending the school board meeting tonight. Andrew Pena will be the other adult attending. Neal Powell is the possible third adult.

Scout should be in full class a.

Each scout should bring with him a print out of the merit badge
workbook for which he is attending. The workbooks available on merit badge.com are excellent.

For scouts working on partial merit badges they should bring their blue card.

They should also bring a pen and a pencil.

Scouts are to be dropped off at 5:30 at the administration building.

We will be going to the Scout meeting after the board meeting.

Realizing most Scouts will not have an opportunity to have dinner before the meeting, we will be making a run through a fast food establishment to pick up food. Please ensure that your scout has sufficient money to pay for his meal.

While they eat, we will be completing the relevant portions of the merit badge is that they are working on in the Scout house.

Please feel free to contact me if needed.

Thanks,
Michelle

Troop Recharter Information

Hello Scouts, Scouters and Parents,

We are now beginning the membership recharter process for the 2014/2015 year!

All youth and adult members of Troop 464 must renew their membership before the troop deadline on December 2nd.

All youth and adult members (or parents) please see Jessika Roller or Rick Hamlin in the scout house to complete this process. Any adult wishing to participate needs to renew or join by this time to be able to participate with the scouts – all adults will be required to provide a current copy of their Youth Protection (YPT) certificate to complete the recharter process.  Similar to last year, the troop will be conducting Face-to-Face YPT training – this training is tentatively scheduled to occur on Tuesday Dec 2nd at the scout house.

Fees, forms and YPT certificates will be collected at all of the upcoming troop meetings, October 28th thru December 2nd.  Due to recent national rate hike —Recharter fees are $25 a person-scout or adult. If you want Boy’s Life or Scouting magazine we believe it is still $12 more per magazine subscription (this will be confirmed). The magazines are optional. Fees may be taken out of scout accounts, but we will not assume you want us to do this. You must talk to the treasurer, Richard Zamora,to make sure you have funds and let him know you want the money taken from your account. If you haven’t registered in the past, we will need a membership form and YPT from (for adults).  We can not register you without everything listed-council will not take it.

If you have not paid your fees by December 2nd your membership will not be renewed and will expire December 31. Boys will not be allowed to participate after this date until charter is re-established and fees are paid.

Thanks in advance for your cooperation with this process.

Please contact me with any questions.

Rgds,

Rick Hamlin

Hello Scouts, Scouters and Parents,

 

The scouts had a wonderful time at the Kickapoo Caverns.  Look for pictures soon.

 

Fall Camp Update

Hello Scouts, Scouters & Parents,

Fall Camp Registration Continues Until November 4th.

So far there are 19 participants from troop 464 – registration has been brisk! I’ve attached a file to summarize the daily schedules for each of these 19 scouts (see “Troop 464 Fall Camp MB.xls”). Please review and let me know if you have issues/questions.

Very few classes are currently filled (tenderfoot and one of the Horsemanship classes are examples of a few that have filled)… This will change quick during the coming month as other troops begin to register.

Here are details if you are interested in registering:

Fall Camp will occur November 21 – 26, 2014

Cost: $100.00 (youth) and $85.00 (adult) – youth will be required to provide payment of $100.00 PLUS applicable Merit Badge Fees at registration Registration Deadline – November 4th, 2014!!!!!

The troop registration form and camp waiver forms are attached to this email – Please complete and return to either Mrs Duncan OR Mr Hamlin at the scouthouse by November 4th!!

All registrants must provide: 1) Troop Registration Form – see Merit Badge List (attached) to complete your selections.2) Payment of $100.00 for scouts PLUS applicable merit badge fees – yes, scout points can be used!3) Completed Fall Camp Release form (the attached file is labled 2013 – please complete
anyway…)4) Completed Horsemanship Waiver form (only for those participating in the Horsemanship Merit
Badge)5) Current BSA Health Form (Part A, B & C) – if not already on file with the troop. Remember that merit badges are first come first serve. It is in the best interest of our Scouts to get our names in as quickly as possible.

In addition we need to highlight that if you have completed a merit badge you should not take the class again. Specifically, Horsmanship, Archery, Rifle and Shotguns that have limited capacity. These are fun classes but in the spirit of Scouting we should let everyone have a chance to participate!

Please contact Mr Hamlin or Mrs Duncan with any questions.

This is a great opportunity to earn Merit Badges and have fun with your friends from troop 464 and accross the Bay Area Council!

I hope to see you all there!

Rgds,

Rick Hamlin

Athletics Merit Badge

Special offer of discounted price of $20 for Boy Scouts to attend the Battle of the Piney Wood classic game with Stephen F. Austin vs. Sam Houston State on November 1. Scouts will be able to participate in the pre-game Athletics Merit Badge out on the Houston Texans field, will also meet former Houston Texan JJ Moses and receive commemorative patch per Scout. Contact Cameron Walker at 832-667-2103 or Cameron.Walker@houstontexans.com to secure your seats today! This event will work towards but not complete the goals for the athletics badge. A checklist will be provided at the event of completed requirements.  (I do not have at this time which exact requirements they will be completing but have been told it will a majority of them) There is not an official start time at this moment since they are still getting details worked out with NRG Stadium and the participating teams in the Battle of the Piney Woods.  That information will be relayed to all once finalized.  More than likely will be around 11am-1pm start time. Regards, Vernon

2015 NOAC Information

Arrowmen,
Here is some information about 2015 NOAC.
It runs August 3-8, 2015 at Michigan State University.
The lodge has estimated that NOAC will cost about $1200. This will most likely go down because the lodge has not decided the mode of transportation yet.
