Scouts and Parents,
Thanks for responding with your questions, volunteering and keeping me on track. I made a mistake in yesterday's email. The Lock-in is Saturday Mar 25 at 7:30 pm in JLC. The following morning we will rendezvous at Joy Lutheran and we would like to be on our way to Big Lake by 9:00 am which means folks should arrive NLT 8:45 am.
I have been asked for the address of the place where we park and walk in to the lake because we have some parents arriving later. I will find out and send out later today.
We have two of our new scout's dads volunteering to spend the night. Can I count on an "Old Goat" Patrol parent to step forward to help in the evening?
Our troop likes to eat scouts and parents all alike. With that said, I invite you to bring your favorite dessert or side to the event on Sunday. We have no warming capability with exception of the grill but jello, fruit salads, macaroni salad, potato salad, cuties, ambrosia are just a few things I suggest by no means is this an exhaustive list. The menu in the past has included hamburgers, hot dogs, drinks (please no soda if you bring your own), chips, Costco cookies, cut fruit.
Reminder for all we do maintain a troop web page and messages are generally posted using this venue. One of our troop parents maintains the site, Ms Amy Steffian. This is a great place for parents to see the running schedule of events. We list our upcoming events and post troop adventures, we also have links to forms including the BSA youth and adult applications, BSA health forms, checklists etc. Visit troop219ak.weebly.com today.
Finally, Troop 219 is always in need of approved drivers. If you would like to be added to the list please share the following information Name, Year, Make & Model of vehicle(s), Number of seatbelts, insurance coverage limits and license plate number. All parents please send your information by replying to this email if you have not previously provided it to Mr. Puterbaugh or Mr. Estes.
