RSVP for Annual Feast

Posted on Oct 29 2014 - 3:58pm

Parents,

The Annual Feast is on November 22nd.  It is a troop-wide activity that allows our Scouting family an opportunity to get to know one another while our Scouts demonstrate their outdoor cooking skills.  We also use this event as a recruiting tool for area Webelos to experience Troop 777 as they near their crossover decisions in February. 

The Scouts will be camping out in tents Friday - Sunday.  Saturday dinner will be served in the lodge at 4pm.

All Scouts will be assisting in the planning and preparation leading up to the event even if they are not attending.  Since it takes the Scouts all day to prepare for this meal, all Scouts are encouraged to attend the entire weekend. 

Each patrol has been assigned food to prepare ahead of time and bring to the Feast weekend.  Patrols will determine how to allocate the work, but it is expected that this is a Scout prepared meal.  However, Patrols may work together.

Please RSVP by registering on the Event Page as soon as possible so the boys know how much food to plan for.

Looking forward to seeing everyone.

POPCORN SALES ENDING SOON

Posted on Oct 21 2014 - 4:09pm

Scouts:

Popcorn sales will soon be over by month's end. As I mentioned at a few meetings, the popcorn rules for Troop 777 are the same as last year’s. If you elect not to sell any popcorn, the troop buyout is $60.00. To avoid the buyout, you need to sell a minimum of $160.00. Any popcorn sold over the $160.00 minimum means extra $ put into your High Adventure account for camp outs and neat prizes (see the “prizes” attachment with the order you picked up) . I also attached the popcorn orde form in  ase you need one.
