The information for the Skeeters game is listed below. Additional information is posted in the scout house. Signup sheet is up.

If your son is not able to attend the game then we hope to see him at the planning meeting and patrol olympics on Saturday. It will include, but not limited to, scout skills, sports, and trivia as well as some more events that Mr.Albee and Mr.Hamlin can conjure up for our kids.

Pancake Supper Information

2015 Pancake Supper Kickoff!

 

Pancake Supper Tickets will be distributed to all members of Troop 464 beginning this Tuesday night (Dec 16, 2014)!

 

This is our one and only fund raiser – We need your help to make this a successful event, so that we can help to fund our scouts and troop!

 

Ticket Sales:

 

1.Each Scout will receive a minimum of 50 tickets to be sold at $6 each ($300 total). Scouts can receive additional tickets in groups of 50 at any time from Mr. Hergert, Mrs Patino, Mr Hamlin, or Mr Zamora.

 

2. Scouts should always use the buddy system when selling tickets… never go selling door-to-door alone.

 

3. If a Scout sells at least $300 of tickets, he will earn 150 points to his Scout account for future Scout-related events (summer camp, fall camp, etc.). Any tickets sold above the $300 will earn half a point toward his account. For example, if Johnny sells 60 tickets, he will receive 180 points in his Scout account. The Scout must sell at least $300 worth of tickets from individual and group sales in order to receive any points in his Scout account. Otherwise all proceeds go toward the Troop fund.

 

4. Individual Sales Contest – Corporate sponsors are funding a cash sales contest for the top individual ticket seller. Tickets sold at group sales events (see Item 5 below) are not eligible for the sales contest. The scout selling the most tickets in individual sales as of Tuesday, March 3 will be awarded a cash prize. This cash prize is separate from the scout credit mentioned in Item 3 above.

 

5. Group Sales and Turning In Ticket Money information will follow at a later date.

 

Auction Items:

 

About 50% of the proceeds of our Pancake Supper & Auction come from the auction portion of our event. The key to a successful auction is popular auction items. As a result, every Scout is expected to bring two auction items for the pancake supper auction. Auction items can be delivered to the scout house any Tuesday night prior to the event.

 

Rather than purchase two items, this year we are stressing that you solicit auction item donations from local businesses and employers. In additional to being less of a financial burden to the Scout families, it will also improve the quality of auction items we receive. A donor letter is available to any business who requests documentation. The final date for auction items will be announced come at a later date.

FUMC Gift Basket Delivery

All scouts and scouters,

 

Our year is coming to an end.  We always help FUMC with gift basket delivery in the area.  As an appreciation for the scouts’ help, we are taking the kids out for an overnight at Stone Moves Rock Gym that night paid by the Troop Committee.

 

Gift baskets distribution starts at 7:30 am.

Stone Moves departure 10 pm.

 

Thank you,

Hung Pham

National Jamboree 2013 at The Summit

Get ready! The Boy Scouts of America 2013 National Scout Jamboree is scheduled for July 15-23, 2013! The event is filled with serious high adventure activities, such as whitewater rafting, zip-lining, rappelling, mountain biking, hiking, and more! Join 50,000 of your closest friends at the brand new Summit Bechtel Reserve in the wilds of West Virginia.

July 2013 seems like a long way off, but plans are already in-progress, and registration is now open for the Bay Area Council (BAC) contingent that will participate in Jambo ’13! Hurry and register, so you can be one of the first Scouts to ever camp at The Summit! Once selected, participants will be assigned to one of three Jambo Troops within the BAC contingent, and they will be required to attend monthly meethings in preparation for the trip.

ASM Dennis Gittens from our Troop has already been selected as a member of the BAC contingent, and some of our Scouts have already registered to attend.

The BAC contingent will (tentatively) leave the Houston area via bus, approximately 5-7 days prior to the start of camp, stopping along the way for exciting activities (suggested events are stopping in Memphis, TN, to ride and have lunch on a riverboat, and visiting Washington, DC, among others). Though final decisions have not yet been made regarding the trip itinerary, planning is underway.

The cost of the trip for BAC members will be between $2200 – $2500 per participant. This includes the cost of the Jambo, a duffel bag, food and travel fees, and three complete uniforms (provided by BAC).
