Fishing Derby!

Posted on Sep 22 2016 - 12:04pm

This weekend on Sunday September 25th, we will have our fall fishing derby.  It will be from 1:00 to 4:00 at Ellicott creek park in Tonawanda.  We will be meeting directly at the park at 1:00. There is no cost to participate and all are invited. It is a public park and everyone 16 years old and older should have a fishing license. We will be fishing in the overflow basin  to the right of the large parking area near the Niagara Falls Blvd entrance. The overflow basin is a shallow pond off of Tonawanda creek that is loaded with fish. There are tons of sunfish and bass as well as catfish, rock bass and the occasional pike. Prizes will be awarded for most fish, largest fish and  smallest fish. Please find the attached permission slip for more details. I will be at the meeting on Wednesday to answer any questions you may have. Yours in scouting, Mr. Brand

NYC Trip final payment due

Posted on Sep 13 2016 - 7:07am

For those going to NYC with the Troop, the final payment of $90 is due.  Please bring it in on Wednesday to the Troop meeting. A few families have not paid the deposit of $100 that was due in August.  Please take care of it immediately.  I would like to avoid a situation where we told another family that they can’t go because the roster is full and learn later that there were openings. Here is the roster:

Drivers needed!

Posted on Sep 13 2016 - 7:06am
I wish to thank those who have stepped up to drive, however it is not enough. There are 19 scouts signed up for the weekend. Currently there are drivers for: 16 on Friday and 15 on Sunday. If additional volunteers don't step up by Wednesday we will have to reduce the number of scouts who can attend. A lottery of those without parental drivers would take place at the meeting to determine which scouts would have to be eliminated from the trip.     If you can assist please contact me soon.
