2015 OA Dues

Posted on Jan 20 2015 - 3:39pm

Reminder OA members: We are collecting OA Dues for 2015 at 1/21 and 1/28 troop meetings. Our troop will pay half, including adults.  To simplify collection & payment, we will collect $5 in dues (cash, ck payable to Troop 457, or  Troop Bucks) at the beginning of the meeing.  Our OA Troop Reps (Ethan B & Brayden F) will be handling this. If you pay at a troop meeting, please ignore the dues mailing from the lodge.  If you don't, then pay $10 directly and request a troop  reimbursement for $5. If you have any questions, please ask me. WWW,  Mrs Ginny Conway, OA Troop Rep Adviser

Electronics Campout Reminder

Posted on Jan 20 2015 - 11:21am

Attention all our campout participants,
(and if you aren't a participant this year, take note of what you can potentially achieve next year)

For starters, it's great that we'll have nearly everyone who earned a slot at our campout this weekend! 

I understand that at meeting Wednesday night it was mentioned arrival time at camp is 6:00 and the permission slip (attached for those few I didn't personally hand out) says 6:30, so feel free to arrive anytime after 6:00. We'll have some pizza for an evening snack while we get all our gaming systems setup. 

We will have a Wii, PS2 or Xbox available to use, and maybe a Nintendo 64 for some retro play. Please feel free to bring along any games that you'd like to play and share. Plus if it's easy for you to bring along a different system to share, we can change things up during the day. We'll also have some movie time, so if you have a favorite flick you'd liek to share (dvd), feel free to bring that along too. 
(don't forget to label everything so that everything goes home with the right Scout on Sunday)

Also, we are planning to have a wi-fi hotspot available, so feel free to bring along your laptop for some Minecraft or anyother multi-player game you would like to play. 

Games don't actually all have to be electronic either. Bring along your Pokemon or Magic decks too. 

Lastly, with Mr Wilson coming along with us this year while Mr Fuller recovers, there may be an additional treat or two that get prepared. 

Please don't forget to bring your permission slip when you arrive.

Looking forward to a fun weekend!! 
Mr Rohan
