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,

Event Information

Tomahawk 2018

I am sure this warm weather has everyone thinking about summer camp. I will have paper forms available tonight at the Court of Honor, but for those of you who can not make it to the Court because they live in Michigan or some equally good reason, I thought I should send them electronically as well.

Hello Everyone!

The Personal Management Merit Badge is one of the more involved badges and it is an Eagle Requirement.  As such, I’m going to start a new class.  Could you please respond if you are interested?

Sea Base 2018

Update: Seabase Crew


Sorry for the delay in getting back to everyone.
We have established the crew, contingent on some scheduling for one of the adults.  We did not have enough interest to form two crews, and there were very limited opportunities for two crews on the same 2018 dates.
Our next meeting will be next Tuesday, 1/9 briefly at 6:00 pm, just prior to the troop meeting, at Bethlehem Lutheran.
The expectation will be for each person to provide a non-refundable deposit of $100 to commit to the trip ( bring a check).  We will still need to lock in which date in June we will register for, so please come familiar with your June 2018 calendar an plans.
I will provide a schedule of preparation activities, payments and other steps we need to take to make this trip awesome.
Here is the crew:
Scouts – 
Nick W.
Nick K.
Joe D.
John F.
Jacob O.
Max V.
Adults –
David Walters
Larry Odebrecht or Jim Knutson
If any crew member above cannot commit to the trip by 1/9, we will open the spot up to others who showed interest.
Please email, text or call with questions.

Sea Base

Scouts and Scouters,

After many years of promising to organize a trip to seabase, I’ve finally gotten off my kiester and am ready to inform and explore interest in this high-adventure.

We will meet on Saturday, December 16 at 1 pm in the Bayport Library. I’ve yet to reserve the room, so watch for a follow up email to confirm the meeting location and time.

There are a couple of deadlines looming, so we will need to gauge interest, form crews, create an account, and be ready to submit for a 2019 adventure by Jan 23, 2018.

Another option would be to register for any remaining open adventures in 2018. I’ll bring information on what is available.

In this first meeting we will review the available 2018 and 2019 adventures and take a poll on what scouts and adults are interested in going.

I’m sure many of you are asking about timing and cost.

Most adventures range from 5 – 7 days and take place in the Florida Keys, Bahamas, St. Croix or St. Thomas. All adventures are open over the summer months and some over spring break and in the fall.

Cost can range from $1,600 to over $2,500 per person, all in (accommodations, food, travel, gear) accept your own spending money, which should be minimal.

There is good information on the 2019 brochure found here:

I will need some help with getting all the steps completed by Jan 23, so please come ready to volunteer if your interested in going (or even if your not).

Here’s some photo’s from our last time down:

Here’s some links on youtube of other troops adventures. It’s worth a peek to get stoked about this.
