Massawepie Money due ASAP

Posted on Apr 8 2017 - 9:44pm

Hi Troop, Massawepie Payment Due for Early Bird Pricing

This week is when we need to have the complete payment in for any Scout wishing to take advantage of the Early Bird pricing for Massawepie.  The early bird price is $375. After Monday's meeting, the price goes up to regular price of $400.

1 week of Summer camp - $400
Early Bird Fee if paid in full (to council) by April 12 - $375
Adult fee - $200

March 8, 2017 - $100 per Scout and Adult is due
April 12, 2017 - Balance due for Early Bird Pricing
May 10, 2017 - Balance due for Regulary Price
after May 10, $30 late fee

For new Scouts (Webelos that just crossed over), no late fee will be charged.

Brother Discount - Brothers that are attending sumer camp will be elegible for a $25 per Brother discount.  This needs to be applied for using the Fee Adjustment Request Form.

Additional weeks at Masswepie.  If you wish to attend additional weeks at summer camp, additional weeks are $200 if paid in full by April 12, otherwise $300.

Adults staying partial week - Council really has no provision to handle adults that are only comping a partial week.  No proration/half week pricing.  There are a couple options though:
1. Team up with another adult that is staying the other part of the week and split the fee.  Therefore, if one is staing the first half and the other the second half.  Then, you could split the fee and use 1 Adult spot.  If you choose to do this, please communicate with Mr. Madison and Kerri Rogers.
2. Wait till you get to camp.  Check in at the camp office,  Pay for the day/days/meals you will be staying.  Let Mr. Madison that you will be taking this option so that he is aware.
3. Pay for a full position.

In the 2nd option, we may need to pitch a tent or something to accomodate your overnights.

BOSTON - INFO

Posted on Apr 8 2017 - 8:56pm

In a couple weeks, our troop heads to Boston, Massachusets to experience another venue of our country's history. Boston masacre, Boston Tea Party, Paul Revere's historic ride, the USS Constitution... These are just a few of the exciting things we'll see and learn about.  Other things we'll be doing is visiting the Boston Acquarium, taking a harbor cruise and having a guided tour of the first part of the Feedom Trail.

We leave on April 20 at 10:00am and will be driving to BSA Camp Nobscot. Here, we'll be staying in a cabin with bunks.  The first night, we'll be hiking back to a cabin about 1/2 mile away from the parking lot. So, bring your gear in a backpack that you can carry.  Friday, we'll be moving to a different cabin close to the parking lot and Big Gus.

Bring a bag lunch for the trip out.  We'll also be stoping for dinner while on the road.  Bring enough spending money for dinner on Thursday, lunch on Friday and for the trip home.  You may also want to pick up som souveniers while in Boston.  There will be some time for exploring the city on Saturday after the acquarium.

We'll be in Class A uniform while we travel to and from Pittsford and while we are in Boston. As you know, Class A means: Scout shirt, neckerchief, and Scout pants/shorts.  If you wear shorts, you should be wearing Scout socks too.

Budget/Cost is really tight this year. While we targeted $100 per person, at this point, that doesn't account for gas or parking in Boston.  So, we really need to collect $120 from everyone.  Please bring this to the meeting on Monday.  We have made reservations for 23 at the diffferent locations/activities and we'll be making payments for this number.  We do have room for 1 more Scout as we had a last minute cancelation.  Please let know if you want to take this open spot.

 

Alexander Ziebarth Eagle Scout Project

Posted on Mar 27 2017 - 9:23pm
Hello Troop 167!

I'm working on my Eagle Scout project right now, which will be interviewing veterans for the Library of Congress.  The scheduled work dates for this project are coming up very soon, Saturday April 8 and April 15.

There are two very important parts of this project: veterans and volunteers. 
If you are or know anybody who is a veteran, please contact me at my email aznerd2000@gmail.com or my phone number (585)-387-0035

If you are a Scout, and would like to sign up to help with the project, go to http://doodle.com/poll/3s7ha883s2w6nydr    (You can also sign up on the troop's website / calendar, if you prefer)

An important aspect of this project is the actual interviewing. Scouts who sign up to volunteer will either be handling recording equipment, greeting veterans in the lobby, or actually interviewing veterans.

I'd like to ask that Scouts volunteering to be interviewers should be First Class or higher rank.  

The project is at St. Paul's Lutheran Church. Everybody involved in the interview aspect of this project should arrive at Noon (on April 8) and 8 am (April 15), regardless of shift, for training. Snacks and lunch will be provided.  Shifts will be 2 hours from 9am-11am, 11am to 1pm, etc.
 
Thank you for the help,
Alex Ziebarth
