Tar Heel 10 Miler road race

Dear Scouts, Parents and Leaders,

Our troop has been asked to help out as race water-stop helpers for the Tar Heel 10 Miler road race on Saturday morning, April 26. We will hand out water to runners at a stop in front of St. Thomas More Church. They have asked us to be there at 6:30 am (yes, that’s correct) and say until 10 am.



All the proceeds go to two great local causes that make a positive impact on thousands of people- the UNC Lineberger Cancer Center and the Chapel Hill-Carrboro YMCA.



NOTE: These hours count toward CHCCS service learning hours as well as troop hours for the President’s Volunteer Service Award.



EVEN BETTER NOTE: The first five people who volunteer and show up by 6:30 receive a free race t shirt. Quick Color Solutions will also provide BOJANGLES biscuits for our volunteers before the race (reserve your favorite with me when you RSVP) as well as a post-race meal at Suttons Drugstore when we’re done. You can then go home and nap that afternoon with a full belly. J



Volunteers can park at STM Church. If needed, I can give anyone a ride home who might need it. I will also



This is not a mandatory attendance event, but I guarantee you our troop will be helping out a great cause, we’ll have some fun together cheering on our favorite participating runners, and did I say “eating some irresistibly good food too?” BO TIME starts at 6:30 am. Yours will be waiting…



Email me back if you or your scout can help out. I know it’s early in the morning, but it’s a great cause.



Sincerely yours,



Glenn

​​Parents – I hope that you are enjoying Spring break. Sorry to interrupt you but your attention to this is important – It’s time to make commitments to Summer Camp!

Summer camp 2012 is at Camp Durant. We depart on June 24 and return on June 30.

Costs

The base cost for this camp is $230. Please contact Sammy or Mr Tomkins if you need assistance covering the costs of this camp. Fees may be paid by check payable to Troop 39 or from the scout’s account balance.

There may be additional costs based on your scout’s electives which are paid at camp.  At this time, the camp has not informed us of which activities have additional fees nor how much these fees are. We will communicate these as soon as we know them.

Here is what you need to do – by April 11th

Please share this page with your scout and work with them on their electives.  If you need advice, please email or call Mr Tomkins or Sammy.

Please complete the online form below on or before April 11th or print and complete the pdf registration form and bring to troop night on April 11th and hand to Sammy.  Please bring a check payable to Troop 39 for $230 on April 11th or April 18th.

We need a response from every scout even if they are not planning to attend summer camp.  It’s important that we know whether your scout is planning to attend by April 11th and what their electives are – a delay may mean that your scout does not get to take their preferred electives.

Programmes

Please see the following documents:

1. The leaders’ guide which outlines all of the programmes offered at Durant.

2. The daily (Monday-Thursday) schedule of when each programme is planned.

Scouts who are rank Tenderfoot or below must elect to take either the morning or the afternoon trailblazer programme (p18 of the leaders’ guide) – not both. They can choose other scheduled activities such as Merit Badges for the other part of the day.

Scouts who are Second Class are recommended not to take the trailblazer programme but may do so after they have first discussed this with Sammy or Mr Tomkins.

Scouts First class and higher should elect to take merit badges (p19-29 of the leaders’ guide). There are also several Specialty programmes scouts can choose from. (p29 of the leaders’ guide)

Scouts may leave one hour free in the day.  Scouts with a sash full of merit badges may leave more than one hour free however this needs to be first agreed by Sammy or Mr Tomkins.

Daily Special Events

See the leaders’ guide pages 13-17 for details of special daily events that your scout can participate in to enhance their fun at camp – we are not gathering details of who is interested in which activities but please make sure your scout sees this section!

This past weekend, we were invited to Largo Lake, nr Warrenton, NC for a weekend of Wilderness Survival. The weather didn’t co-operate too well but this gave a great opportunity for the scouts to not only build a shelter to keep them warm, but one to keep them dry.

We had some of our newest troop members on the outing who built their shelter and slept in it through the night’s heavy rain.

Congratulations to Nate FitzSimons who today became Troop 39′s and the country’s latest Eagle Scout.

PVSA Gold award

Twenty-three Scouts and seven adult members of Troop 39 have earned the 2011 President’s Volunteer Service Award for services given to the community throughout the year.

Twenty six different projects were held through 2011 ranging from building a bridge on a new stretch of the Mountains to Sea Trail to the annual Touch a Truck event held at University Mall which resulted in raising over $5000 for the UNC Children’s Hospital.

The community benefited from more than 1500 hours of volunteer time given by over 50 members of the troop in 2011.

Troop 39 is one of the oldest continually chartered troops in the nation and earns the PVSA award for the first time in its history in this, its Centennial year.

Congratulations to all of the members of the troop for the cheerful service they have given to the community throughout 2011.
