Date: September 8th, 2007
Location: Sunshine Park
Time: 10:00 AM onwards
This is the meeting where the Scouts provide ideas and suggestions for the outings they would like to have in the coming year. Scouts can provide their ideas to what type of outing and what they would like to do for activities for the following year's program (2008).
Parents are also invited for this outing as we would like to hear your input too. Please encourage your son(s) to attend this important meeting. A phone tree will take place soon.
This is the time when you can bring up ideas to what type of outing you would like to go and hear some of other ideas from the others. Lunch will be provided.
We will also have 693 Bay. This is where Scouts bring their used equipment and Scout clothing to be sold to other Scouts who might need something.
So this announcement is to tell the older Scouts, go through your closets and garage and see if you have any old, usable gear or Scout clothing that you would like to sell. Bring boots that you have outgrown, uniforms that you have outgrown, Troop green Tshirts that you have outgrown, backpacks, sleeping bags, sleeping pads. As has been in the past, the Troop will keep 20% of the proceeds and the seller gets to keep 80%.
For those of you who are new to 693 Bay, we do a silent auction for items for sale…at the end of the day, we see who the highest bidder is for each item and they make a check out to the Troop for the amount of their bid. So bring your checkbooks on September 8th.
It's a great way to recycle uniforms and camping gear and to help the newer Scouts save some money by buying used gear and clothing.
If you have any questions, call Glenn Nishibayashi.
