Update on Troop 113

Hey All,

Just a quick note to update you on our boys.
Troop 113 Pride!
First, let me just say how proud I am of our boys.  Last night, we packed 25(ish) boxes of food for starving and malnourished kids all over the world.  That works out to be 5400 meals.  Not only that, but we were CLEARLY the fastest group at packing these thanks to some great teamwork and communication.  It was fast paced, fun, and there was a lot of shouting (in the best way).  I’ve included some pictures below (the one with the boxes is a voluntary prayer over the food that we packed).
Upcoming Events
I don’t want to recap the Totem Pole here, but there are a couple of upcoming events that I want to highlight.
  • Fish Fry – I believe (as of today) we have enough participants.  This is for our chartering org so it’s an important one for us.  They boys will get food there.
  • Planning Trip – This is a mandatory activity as it sets the planning for the year.  We have a secret destination that the adults (bears) have planned for the boys.  I’m super excited about this years destination.
As previously mentioned, council has presented us with some new technology that we are in the process of adopting.  This is going to be a change, but on net a good one.  I’m going to start sending invites out to you and I believe it will help not only see what we have going on, but offer some transparency into what the boys need to do to advance in the troop (something that I personally have struggled with).  If you would like to add your son (we have set it up so that it is your choice) you simply need to go into their profile and add their email address.  We are looking for feedback on this tool, so thanks in advance for your candor.
Yours in Scouting,

Fish Fry

We still need a few volunteers for our Fish Fry on Friday.  Please reach out if you are available.

Northern Tier Initial Meeting Recap

Hello all,

As of now the tentative date for our shakedown trip is June 22nd through the 24th.  Please check right away to make sure you are available this weekend.

I created a quick Google Form with the fields required for each participant on the official roster.  I would like to have that completed by March 31st so that I can submit it, and get it out of the way.
The form is available at: https://goo.gl/forms/O1DB2aivIXesSgZj1

At least one adult in our group must have completed following BSA e-certifications: Weather Hazards, Safety Afloat, and Safe Swim Defense.  Information on the courses can be found at the bottom of the following page:  https://www.scouting.org/training/adult/

I did go back and clarify the fishing pole restrictions.  Under Optional Crew Gear on page 26 of the Advisors Planning Guide, part two, it says “Crews are allowed 1-2 poles per crew”.
As of now, I have dumped most of the relevant information about the trip on Troop 113’s website at http://bayporttroop113.org/northerntier/ .  Below I have included direct links to some of the PDFs I mentioned earlier tonight.

Event Information

Fish Fry

We will need volunteers for Friday. They were short staffed last Friday and they were hoping that we would have more this week. We will get the five to six boys we need tonight.



Fish Fry

We have one more fish fry this week.  Would love to get six boys involved.  Time and location is the same.

Friendly reminder, that tonight we’re doing the Personal Management Merit Badge from 6:15 to 7:15 (this badge is one of the tougher ones and most appropriate for older boys – but all are welcome).  At 7:15 we’ll start loading up for FMSC.

Event Information

Fish Fry – Tomorrow


Sorry for the multiple emails today.  I did NOT receive any additional sign-ups for the Fish Fry tomorrow at the Legion.  The event if from 4:30 to 7:00 pm.
Are there 6 boys who’d like to help and get some Service Hours for their next rank advancement?

Drivers for FMSC / Personal Management MB


We could use a few more drivers for Feed My Starving Children on Tuesday @7:15pm in order to make a 8:00 reservation at their Eagan location.  I will have permission slips printed and ready to go for the boys that RSVP’d (look for a separate email).
I will also be working on the Personal Management Merit Badge, so if we could have an adult volunteer and Adam, Joey C, Joey D, Jack, Jacob O, Jay, Patrick, and Tad show up at the regular 6:15 time it would be great.
Yours in Scouting,
