  • Turkey Cookout Woodcutting

    chainsaw
    As you know, our annual Turkey Cookout is a long-time troop tradition held in early November. And, as you probably also know, it takes a LOT of firewood to pit-cook all the turkeys.
    Somebody has to cut all that wood, and that somebody is US.
    We are planning two woodcutting days, both Sunday afternoons: Aug. 11 and 25.
    Here’s what we need:
    • Chain saws
    • Log splitter(s)
    • Hand saws
    • Pickup trucks
    • Flatbed trailers
    • Adults who can use the above
    • Scouts who can work hard
    If you can help one or both days, please call or email Mr. Bryant.

    Mr Cranford will be offering the Camping merit badge to the Troop on August 6th and August 27th from 6:30 – 8:30pm in the Scout room.  You will need  to attend both nights in order to cover all of the material necessary to complete learning and discussion part the badge.  ***This is an Eagle required merit badge. ***

    This class will be open to all Scouts that need the class but priority will be given to older Scouts if the class becomes too full.  Everyone who has not started this class previously should count on taking this class if at all possible. He will also need a couple of adults to assist as this class is usually very full.

    If you intend on being there please email Mr. Cranford and let him know as he will need to make copies of the materials needed.  Everyone will need to get a copy of the NEW color merit badge book from the Scout shop and read it before the class.You can view the requirements at:  http://meritbadge.org/wiki/index.php/Camping

    eagle-scout-project

    Hello all,

    I am planning on doing my eagle project during the latter half of this week starting on Wednesday and going through, tentatively, Sunday. Over all there are four work days that I need help on. All of the work days take place at Classen School of Advanced Studies which is located at 1901 N Ellison Ave.

    Wednesday July 31st, 2013

    Starts at 2:00pm and ends at 8:00pm with dinner provided from 5:00pm to 6:00pmOn this day we will be digging out the area needed for the sidewalk and gardens. People will need to bring work gloves, shovels and, as we will be in the sun for about 2.5 hours before it breaks over the school, hats and sunscreen are advised.  

    Thursday August 1st, 2013

    Starts at 2:00pm and ends at 8:00pm with dinner provided from 5:00pm to 6:00pmOn this day we will be laying down the forms for the sidewalk. People will need to bring work gloves, hammers and, as we will be in the sun for about 2.5 hours before it breaks over the school, hats and sunscreen are advised.

    Friday August 2nd, 2013

    Starts at 2:00pm and ends at 8:00pm with dinner provided from 5:00pm to 6:00pmOn this day we will be pouring the concrete for the sidewalks and the benches. People will need to bring work gloves and, as we will be in the sun for about 2.5 hours before it breaks over the school, hats and sunscreen are advised.

    Sunday August 4th, 2013

    Starts at 1:00pm and ends at 5:00pm with a small late lunch like snack provided at 2:00pm

    On this day we will be finishing off the project by assembling the benches and planting the garden. People will need to bring work gloves, gardening tools and, as we will be in the sun for about the entire time, hats and sunscreen are HIGHLY RECOMENDED.

    Thank you to anyone who can help. If there are any problems with transportation to and from Classen please let me know. If you would like to volunteer of have any questions please contact me at (405) 609-9185 or email me at pat.airport@gmail.com.

    July 4th Parade

    parade

     

     

    On the 4th we are walking in Quail Creeks 4th of July Parade.  For the new families, this has been an annual event for us for many years.  We will meet in the parking lot of the Quail Creek Country Club at 9:00 am.  The event is a fully uniformed event (including neckerchiefs).
     
    The parade goes down Quail Creek Road and ends at their park.  After we do a flag ceremony, we are done.  We have figured out that it is good for parents to work together and drop a car on a side street near the park and then shuttle the kids up to the country club.
