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!

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.
