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

Troop 39 is a scout lead troop; the scouting adult leaders are there to provide guidance and support.   Most of the teaching is done by example, allowing young men the opportunity to learn from troop leaders, in addition to their parents and teachers.  The troop leaders are examples in an outdoor activity focused environment.

As a result of being one of the oldest troops in the nation, Troop 39 is authorized to wear patch with Chapel Hill, NC instead of the standard council patch.  This ties to troop to its roots and tradition.

Mar 07

The scouts annually choose their schedule and camp-outs.  Troop 39 scouts traditionally choose to overnight in an indoor climbing area to climb all day and sleep over on Saturday.  This offers continuous scout led activity and rewarding physical challenges.

Troop 39 neckerchief patch is a unique tradition representing our history and association with the University of North Carolina, CH.  It is loaned to the scout.  When they receive the Eagle rank, the highest in scouting, they may keep the Neckerchief.

Patrols are the building blocks of a Boy Scout troop. A patrol is a small group of boys who are similar in age, development, and interests. Working together as a team, patrol members share the responsibility for the patrol’s success. They gain confidence by serving in positions of patrol leadership. All patrol members enjoy the friendship, sense of belonging, and achievements of the patrol and of each of its members.

Mar 07

Sports are a great opportunity to get outside and get active with your friends.  The troop frequently plays basketball, football, and other games during trips and selected meetings.  The games provide a release of energy and bonding for the troop.

Mar 07

The troop maintains the UNC Hospital butterfly garden, providing a fun, relaxing and calming distraction for patients

Mar 07

The troop 39 song is a way that the troop shows its spirit and unity. Many troops do not have songs, we sing ours coming home from every trip and its an unofficial requirement to get your first rank to know the song.

Mar 07

Capture the Flag is a traditional outdoor sport played by the Troop 39 scouts on camping trips and during scout meetings.  Scouts are in two teams each have a flag (or other marker) and the objective is to capture the other team’s flag, located at the team’s “base,” and bring it safely back to their own base. Enemy players can be “tagged” by players in their home territory; these players are then out of the game, members of the opposite team, or “in jail”. (One variation of the game includes a “jail” area in addition to the flag on each team’s territory.)

Mar 07

Last Scout meeting of the school year for Troop 39 is a family picnic in Chapel Hill.  All of the scouts and family join to celebrate the scout and family achievements and family services provided by Troop council and adult leaders for the years.
