What Do You Want To Do? Who Will Organize It? PLC and Adult Help Needed. Scout Input Needed.

Posted on Jan 10 2018 - 6:01pm

A number of activities are on the Calendar for the rest of the 2017-2018 year ... but there needs to be (1) expressions of interest (to see who plans to attend, might attend, or will not attend ... and if we need to move a location or a date if current plans do not work), and (2) volunteers to work out some of the logistics.

Scouts and families:  please use the "Register" or "Regrets" button at each link below and show your plan to attend (and any family -- go ahead and ask now to figure out your plan) by clicking "attending" or "not attending".  "Attending" means "I currently plan to attend ... but you know, things might change".  "Not Attending" means "I will not attend or this is not interesting to me".  If you are a "Maybe" and want to be kept informed, click "Attending" and note briefly in the "Comments" what your situation is.  If / when you change your mind, email activities@atlanta631.mytroop.us.

The events are -- and Scout input (through the Patrol Leaders Council) is noted where applicable:

Tybee - January 12-15.  Camp near Savannah, with multiple activities.  See https://atlanta631.mytroop.us/node/9539.   

Skibee - January 12-14.  Maybe this weekend (if skiers don't want Tybee), maybe it moves to one of the next four weekends with good snow/cold.  At Maggie Valley (and they have a solid base now, all runs open, so this should be "on"), and probably "motel camping", though could be Camp Daniel Boone.  More at https://atlanta631.mytroop.us/node/9412.  Register there.  Don't worry about the weather.  P.S.: past weekends there show that they have good instructors, so "never skied before" is not an excuse.  This also needs an Adult to step up and coordinate.  You can do it.  We can help: email activities@atlanta631.mytroop.us.  

Stone Summit Lock-in - January 20-21.  Climb all Night.  More at https://atlanta631.mytroop.us/node/9411.  Register there now.  Big turnout from Pack 631.

SkiNC -- Easy button family outing, with notes about how to announce "let's go" at January 26-28 and at February 2-4.  You could use the same plan to go this weekend too, if you like (though MLK weekend is more crowded).  

March Campout To Be Determined - maybe March 2-4, maybe another weekend.  Nothing really at https://atlanta631.mytroop.us/node/9415, because This Needs Patrol Leaders Council Direction about Where to Go, What to Do, When to Go.  Ideas at our "We Should Do This!" page at https://atlanta631.mytroop.us/node/8259.  This also needs an Adult to step up and coordinate.  You can do it.  We can help: email activities@atlanta631.mytroop.us

Cave Camping - April 20-22.  This Needs Patrol Leaders Council Direction about Where to Go -- Which Cave.   Do we want to see if the David Lawrence "wild cave" team has any openings?  Maybe Desoto Caverns in Alabama?  Maybe somewhere else?  See https://atlanta631.mytroop.us/node/9416 to register, which does not bind you if you don't like the Cave selected.  This also needs an Adult to step up and coordinate.  You can do it.  We can help: email activities@atlanta631.mytroop.us

Canoe Campout - May 4-6.  This Needs Patrol Leaders Council Direction about Where to Go -- Which River or Lake.   Do we want to see about another part of the Flint River?  Do Lake Canoeing?  Maybe somewhere else?  See https://atlanta631.mytroop.us/node/9417 to register, which does not bind you if you don't like the River or Lake selected.  This also needs an Adult to step up and coordinate.  You can do it.  We can help: email activities@atlanta631.mytroop.us

Summer Camp - either June 10-16 at Skymont, or Rainey Mountain sometime in July.   See https://atlanta631.mytroop.us/node/9418 to register interest in Skymont June 10-16.  Take this survey at https://www.surveymonkey.com/r/T631SummerCamp2018 to express interest in Rainey Mountain weeks Adults too! -- there is no clarity yet about Adult Support for any July weeks at Rainey Mountain (that's all that's left).  

Northern Tier 2018 -- is anyone interested?  Sign up at https://atlanta631.mytroop.us/node/9419.  If you're asking, "maybe, but when, exactly", sign up at https://atlanta631.mytroop.us/node/9419, and let's figure that out. 

Leader Rock - August 24-26.  For youth leaders, those who advise them, and aspiring leaders.  Now with fewer Webelos!  And less cold, more ice cream.  Sign up at https://atlanta631.mytroop.us/node/9518
