Ricketts Glen “Ice” Hike Weekend

Posted by joshdawson on Jan 22 2023 - 3:06pm

This weekend our high adventure crews went cabin camping in Ricketts Glen. While we were planing for an ice hike, the weather turned out to be too good, and there wasn't enough ice. Instead we had a fun teambuilding weekend with a hike for half the day. It was a fun campout, and it was a very nice cabin.

Pinewood Derby Info

Posted by joshdawson on Jan 12 2023 - 9:23am
The Troop will be assisting with the pack's Pinewood Derby on Saturday February 11th and then have an opportunity to race their own car in a troop race.  The TROOP rules were distributed last night and are attached; These allow for more freedom in building your car than the traditional Pack Pinewood Derby rules.  These rules are ONLY for TROOP race and do not apply to any scouts in the pack.  
Derby car kits may be purchased for  $7 at any troop meeting.  Scouts and leaders are encouraged to participate.  
Troop scouts who want to participate in the troop pinewood derby are asked to sign up for a time slot on Saturday to help run concessions, help manage the paddock, be a race starter or a floater. There's also slots to help Friday night with set-up.  Utilize this sign-up link:  https://www.signupgenius.com/go/4090F4DAFA628A6FB6-troop3
All troop scouts participating in the race shall arrive with their car at 12:30.  They will then have an opportunity to purchase lunch from the concession stand and get their car checked in prior to the race start.  At the conclusion of the troop race, the Troop scouts will help clean up the track / room  etc..  It is anticipated that clean up will be done around 3 pm when scouts may be picked up.  For any troop parents wishing to see the Troop race, we'd expect to start racing sometime between 1-1:30.
If a troop scout needs help carving out their car, Mr. Cless, troop leader, is holding three opportunities to carve them at his workshop - Saturdays 1/21, 1/28 and 2/4.  Utilize this sign-up link.  https://www.signupgenius.com/go/70a0c49aea723a6fe3-pinewood5#/
