Scouting preso 2013

Published on

Troop 226 in Monroe, NC, has created a three year vision that changes the direction to that of a High Adventure Troop. With planned visits to Boundary Waters Canoe Area in 2014, Sea Base in 2015 and Philmont in 2016, the troop is no longer local but national in focus.

  • Reference we are all volunteers, touched by the effects of scouting as a youth.
  • 90+% of scout troops in the council that we are a part of operate only in the red circle. We are not going to be one of those troops, going forward. We will work the boys towards advancement, and have fun doing it.THIS is my charge to this troop. We will do stuff that will create lifetimes of memories
  • I am going to dedicate some time to each area in red.Enthusiasm
  • 7 day events for crews of up to 12 boys.
  • Basics that all scouts need to learn
  • Reference my jacket
  • Smithing
  • Two day climbHypothermia story
  • Summit
  • Four different one week courses available: River based, Climbing, Shooting/Archery and cycling.
  • A few days are spent on class 2 and 3 for skills, just like what is seen here. The last few days are spent on class 4 and 5.
  • They have BMX trails as well as high tech skateboarding

    4. 4. BWCA
    5. 5. What is the Boundary Waters Canoe Area ? • 1,000,000+ acres set aside in 1978 by an act of congress • Restricted logging, mining, and most motorized access • A pristine, yet rugged wilderness • The lakes are cut from granite and surrounded in old pine growth
    6. 6. Why Plan Now? 1. We want to ensure that a permit for the date we desire to enter on and for the entry point you wish to embark from is available. 2. We want to make sure we are well prepared with proper gear, know-how, and plan to enter the wilderness. 3. We want to physically prepare. A boat has a max weight of 440 pounds. We will paddle for up to 8 hours on some days, especially if we are paddling into current, or wind. 4. We have to be strong enough to portage, a lot!
    7. 7. Concerns • Weather: Rain, snow and hot sun is possible on any given day in June. • Black Flies: Memorial Day to the third week of June. • Mosquitos: Mid-June to the later part of July.They are very easy to repel. • Fishing: Best in June, degrades but still good in July.
    8. 8. What is in it for the Scouts? • 50 mile afoot afloat award • Canoeing, Fishing, et al, Merit Badges • National OutdoorAchievement Award • Mile Swim • BMS changing adventure
    9. 9. Fishing • Eat what we catch or Catch and Release • Small Mouth Bass • Pike • Walleye • LakeTrout
    10. 10. Characteristics of a BWCA trip • Travel to a different campsite, everyday • Carry dry food but catch your protein. • Swim in, bath in and drink the lake water…one of only a few places left on Earth where this is OK. • Read the “lay of the land” in order to navigate. No roads, signs or man made landmarks to guide you.
    11. 11. Itinerary of trip • Leave Friday after school in June or in late July, depending what we select. • Travel “on the road” one night. Arrive in Ely, MN, late in the day, on Sunday • Get quick tow to Crane Lake and enter the park on Monday. • Camp 6 nights. Cover ~ 70 miles of water • Pickup from Mudrow Bay, shuttle back to Ely, MN and begin the drive home. • Arrive back onTuesday.
    12. 12. Gotcha/non-gotcha • Limited to 9 people in 4 canoes. • Must have 2 leaders • Recommended Minimum rank of first class • Not a replacement or substitute for Barnhardt related activities. • Blessed by many school principals, already.
    13. 13. Slideshow and Q and A • AlexAdkins to discuss how we pay for this. • Jeff Gaura to field questions. • Linda Gaura to answer as a non-scout for those who are interested
