Air Force/Navy Football Game and Campout

Posted on

The Air Force Academy hosts the Navy football team on October 6th (Saturday) and thanks to Mr. Smerchek Troop 640 can get tickets to the game and has reserved the campground near the B-52 airplane on Stadium Blvd for that Friday and Saturday.

We have to pre-order the game tickets so we need a list of people who will be going. Please email Mr. Arbaugh at jarbaugh@pfgc.com the number of game tickets you need and the number of Scouts and adults who will be camping with the Troop that weekend.  We’ll need the number of tickets needed by August 1st, so please respond ASAP if you want on the list.

Campers may also be able to participate in a tour of the Academy not open to the public, depending on the game time and schedule for Saturday and Sunday morning.

14’er Trip / Mt. Sherman

Posted on

High Adventure opportunity!
We will be climbing Mt Sherman as our 2018 14er Trip.  Mt Sherman (14, 036ft) is one of the easier mountains and is often a persons first 14er.  The trip is scheduled for August 10th through the 12th.  Mt Sherman is the location of an the old Sherman silver mine that operated between 1968 and 1982.  The ruins of the mine still exist and are very cool to see.
This is a High Adventure activity and climbing mountains comes with inherent risks.  Scouts will need to be in good shape.  Safety is paramount and communication is key.  We will have radios on every adult and a trail-head boss checking people on and off the mountain.  We need a couple adults to be part of the climb and an adult to be the trail-head boss.  All interested parties please let me know.  Also need a volunteer to be the SPLC on this trip.

 

Permission slips must be turned in by Monday night, July 30th.  July 30th meeting we will plan menus and have a demonstration of what needs to be in your day-pack for climbing.  A climbing gear list will be provided to the climbers at that time.
For questions, please contact Mr Johnson:  cdjohnson@live.com

 

Who is ready for Adventure!!

Camp Rank Advancement

Posted on

Attention Scouters young and old!

Throughout April 13-15, our troop will be providing one of the greatest opportunities for new scouts to earn the rank of Tenderfoot!

Throughout this camp out we will incorporate almost every requirement for the rank in a fun and interactive way.

All new scouts that attend are highly highly recommended to bring their parents along so that we can get the lay of the land and all get to know each other!

We also need a few older scouts to assist with teaching the requirements.

All are welcome! I hope to see you there and assist you all on your scouting journey.

If there are any questions or comments, please contact me at ezekiel.kz2002@gmail.com, or call or text me at 720-320-7198
