[Troop222All] Scoutmaster Updates: August 2, 2013

Hope everyone is having a great summer and it is time to start thinking about the beginning of another great scouting year.  

Philmont 2013:
23 Boys and 8 adults are headed to the high desert for a 12 day hike in God’s country.  Lets all have them in our daily thoughts and and wish them God’s Speed.
Scoutmaster Conferences:
The Court of Honor is scheduled for September 11th, so the Boards of Review are on the 4th.  I have created a Google Doc to let scouts signup for Scoutmaster Conferences.
Need Conservation Service Hours?
Want to have a create Family Camping Experience? 
Come to the Oljato camp closeout on Labor Day Weekend.  Each year I have been able to get one more family to attend.  You can be the new family this year!  More information is at the bottom of this email.  You will definitely get your needed Conservation Service Hours and your 15 hours of service for the troop for your service pin.  It is a great time for the whole family!  Lake front platform tent camping with great food!
First Troop Meeting:
Currently our first Troop meeting is scheduled for September 4th.  We may actually move that to Friday the 6th at the Palo Alto Service center so we can have an “Opening Campfire”.  We will keep you posted.
Patrol Leader’s Council:
It is scheduled for August 25th, 7:30 to 9:00.  Please RSVP to kristin@fichou.net to confirm you will be there.  
I am out of town with the two Committee Chairs, so hopefully nothing urget will come up…
But if you need an immediate response please contact Kris De Lisle.
Oljato Work Parties
Closing work parties are when we shut down camp and prepare it for winter hibernation. Boats, tents, and camp equipment are cleaned, repaired and put into storage. Various camp maintenance and improvement projects are also completed at this time. If you like to cook, we need volunteer cooks too because we provide meals and lodging for all volunteers. Work is available for all ages but very young children are discouraged. Overnight stay is recommended because of the distance to camp.
