Cooking Merit Badge

This Eagle required badge will be offered to all Life and Star scouts at the troop meetings on 9/9 & 9/16. Scouts will need to attend both meetings and then can begin their cooking. This badge will only be offered twice a year so plan to attend if you meet these requirements.

Tents Missing

Scouts are asked to take a tent home after campouts to set it up and dry it out. These tents are to be returned at the next troop meeting. We are missing 3 green tents from the August campout and 1 brown tent from the High Knoll trip. If you have one, please bring it to the meeting on 9/9/14 or get it to Mr. Horvath this week. We need them for our Ohiopyle trip this weekend.

Popcorn Fundraiser
Blair Lampner - blampner@yahoo.com

*The popcorn fundraiser is underway. Each scout received information and order forms at the troop meeting on 9/2/14. Each scout is asked to sell a minimum of $450.00 of popcorn which will give $75.00 to Troop 390 and $75.00 for their scout account. If a scout chooses not to participate in the popcorn sale, a $75.00 donation is expected to cover that scout’s portion of the troop’s operating costs.

Scoutmaster's Minute
Jim Horvath

Uniform Day this Thursday 9/11. Wear your uniform to school and earn a patch. You can wear either your khaki uniform with all the emblems or wear the blue Troop 390 T-shirt. The idea is to tell other boys about the Troop and encourage them to visit the Troop and consider joining Boy Scouts. Scouts must report that they wore their uniform by 9/16 so patches can be ordered.

Ohiopyle Rafting this weekend Meet at the church at 10:00 a.m. sharp. Eat well before you come and bring a bag lunch and something to drink. We do no want to stop to buy food enroute to Ohiopyle. PB&J will be available when we get to camp. We will tent camp at Ohiopyle State Park Group Campsite #228. Please bring your own tent if possible.

Meals in camp will be dinner Saturday and Breakfast Sunday. Disposable plates and utensils will be provided by the Troop. It gets dark an hour earlier at Ohiopyle.

Sunday, after breakfast we are to be at Wilderness Voyageurs Outfitters, 103 Garrett St., Ohiopyle PA 15470, at 10:00 a.m. sharp.

The Lower Yough rafting trip is close to 5 hours on the river, depending on the water. Lunch will be provided by the Outfitter at a pull over on the river. The Troop will also provide a tail gate lunch at the end of the rafting, before we head home.

It will be 50 degrees Saturday night, so jackets and warm sleeping bags are needed. On the river, everyone must wear closed toe shoes that won’t come off accidently. No flipflops! Wear only quick dry bathing suits and t-shirts. No cotton or cotton blend!

Aaron Lampner’s Eagle Project
Aaron Lampner

My Eagle Scout project was completed on Saturday, August 23 at the One of a Kind Pet Adoption Center. We successfully completed the building of a shelter to store cages outside between uses. One of A Kind Pets has deemed it “The Coop.” Also four obstacles were built for an agility course. We also cleaned and organized all the improperly stored cages, which will be stored in the shelter. I want to thank all the scouts and their families who helped at my project to make it go smoothly. It was an amazing turn out and I want to thank you for all your help!
