Day 1 -Monday June 20 - 7 - 8.30 PM.
You will need to have your Merit Badge booklet at this session
Day 2 - Sunday July 17 - 2 PM until meeting.
For this meeting we'll have a field trip to an emergency operations center. There are a few option to be set up by myself and Mr. Tangog.
Day 3 - Date to be determined
The Scouts will plan an exercise
Day 4 - An exercise will happen, which will be planned by the scouts participating in the MB.
You will need an Emergency Preparedness MB and the printed booklet.
Yours in Scouting,

I wanted to let everyone know that the next PLC meeting will take place on Wednesday (June 8) at 7:00 PM. It will take place at the usual spot at Joy Lutheran Church. Please let me know if you will not be able to attend and if you cannot please contact your assistant.
Scouts & Parents,
For all scouts & parents who will be joining us for the NRA Youth Shoot <
We will meet at Joy Lutheran Church Sat 4 June @ 7:15 AM to rendezvous to Birchwood Shooting Park in Chugiak.
This is an all day event & should be concluded NLT 4:30/5:00 PM. Please wear Class "B" uniform & dress for the weather. I would bring a light rain jacket & water bottle in a small day pack or fanny pack. You can bring your own shooting glasses & ear muffs, but they will also provide them for you. Shooters will be required to wear a ball cap...they provide.
WE WILL SIGN IN TOGETHER when we arrive. This ensures all Troop 219 stays together. 8-11 yr old boys will go in one group & 12-18 to old boys go in the other direction....(depending on how u signed up) Lunch is free & the half time show is great. Please bring your ticket number if you have it available. For more info, go to agca.net.
Parents are responsible for transportation or help with car pooling at JLC. Parent helpers-chaperones will also be welcomed for the day. I suspect we'll have approx 15 scouts. If you are going straight to Birchwood & not JLC, please let me know. If you didn't previously sign up, you can show up and see if they can get you in on the stand-by list....you'll have to wait until everyone is signed in, but you never know.
Let me know if you have any questions....
C U Saturday AM.
SM, Troop 219
