Rainbow River Scout Camp and Float Trip, Sept 10th-12th

Hi Troop,

I will be organizing this year’s camping and float trip to Rainbow River, Sept 10th-12th. We currently have 5 sites reserved (room for 40 scouts and adults). Please let me know if you are interested in attending. Since I have not participated in this trip in the past, I thought it would be helpful to hear from you all.

What worked?
What didn’t work?
What might you like to do differently?

We will be holding Tenderfoot mini-clinics and need one older scout to teach each of the following tenderfoot skills:
4a- Demonstrate how to whip and fuse the ends of a rope.
4b- Demonstrate you know how to tie the following knots and tell what their uses are: two half hitches and the taut-line hitch
5- Explain the rules of safe hiking, both on the highway and cross-country, during the day and at night. Explain what to do if you are lost.
6- Demonstrate how to display, raise, lower, and fold the American flag.
11- Identify local poisonous plants; tell how to treat for exposure to them.
12a- Demonstrate how to care for someone who is choking.
12b- Show first

Summer Hughes - July 20, 2010 - 8:31 am

Sounds like fun! Cody would be interested in going. We’ve been tubing down Rainbow River many times, but haven’t camped there.

Jim Dinsmore - July 20, 2010 - 2:04 pm

We have been several years and it’s always a good time. I remember last year, I saw an otter in the river while floating downstream. It was very cool.

If memory serves, we done a campout at the state park on several occasions. The only drawback to that has been the time necessary to get the coals hot. By making the decision to spend an extra night, it removes the time constraint to get back to Tampa on Saturday afternoon.

Our other learning was that the ranger locks the campgrounds at dusk. We were fortunate to stumble upon another group of campers that were opening the gate for family members and provided us with the combination to the lock. Otherwise, it would have been a bit of a hike (literally) carrying the gear in. It would make good sense to send a small advance team up to sign in before dusk on the Friday to prevent a recurrence of this potential problem.

Robbie and I plan to attend.

Keiler Schroeder - July 20, 2010 - 5:37 pm

Summertime Notes

CONGRATULATIONS ARE IN ORDER…

* To trumpet player BRIAN N, who was recognized back on May 27 at the Wilson Middle School Spring Band Concert for being named to the All-County Band for Hillsborough County! Brian recently volunteered to be the troop bugler, so we know we got a quality note coming. Way to go, Brian!

* To CASSIAN O. and KEILER S. for successfully completing their Citizenship in the Nation merit badge at the last district Roundtable meeting!

* To Mr. Cohn for being named to the Tocobaga District Cub Scout Roundtable Staff!

* To the adult leaders of Troop 22 for being awarded the Best Attendance for Roundtable this year! Our troop had the most consistency in attending the district’s monthly Roundtable meetings. This is where all the adult leaders for the Greater Tampa area meet to exchange ideas, learn what’s going on in our district and council, and to get training when offered.

SUMMER CAMP NOTES
It won’t be long before we are loading up in a bus to head north to Georgia for a week of great Scouting. We have just six weeks remaining until our departure so think about the following:
* Medical Forms. Do you have completed medical forms ready? All summer camp attendees need to have had a physical checkup with the proper BSA-approved medical forms. All three sections must be completed, since our activity will be longer than 72 hours. This form is good for one year. If you or your son have recently had a physical, then your physician can simply complete and sign the form. Mr. Dinsmore will need to have these forms prior to our departure.

* Packing. Be certain to read your Scout Handbooks for what to pack for summer camp. You will be there for one week, so you will need plenty of clothes, towels, swim trunks and gear to prepare you for all types of weather, both rain and shine. I am going to see if we can arrange a night or two prior to

PATHFINDING MERIT BADGE UPDATE
A number of you have expressed interest in earning this classic merit badge, which is being offered for this year only. I am proposing some dates in July prior to summer camp where we can meet, preferably two consecutive days at the Magnolia Building (where we now have our regular meetings). I think it’s realistic we can have two 1.5 hour sessions to get it done. I emailed requirements and sent out links for this last month. If you need them again, please let me know.

Here’s hoping all of you are having a great start to your summer plans!

Yours in Scouting,
Kim Fatica, Assistant Scoutmaster

Court of Honor, Sir Isaac Newton, and Giants

What an amazing Court of Honor last Monday evening!  The level of energy and enthusiasm in our Troop is contagious.  It was great to see all our Scouts – both new and the seasoned – thrilled with their accomplishments in advancements and merit badges. It was also wonderful to share those moments with our parents; you figure prominently in the success of our troop.

Sir Isaac Newton is most famous for his contributions to the scientific community in the areas of Physics, Mathematics, and Optics.  Although somewhat lesser known, he was also credited with the quote, “If I have seen further it is only by standing on the shoulders of giants.”  This was Newton’s “shout out” to the great minds that preceded him.  I too, know how Newton felt, for over the past two years we have been handed a torch from the T-22 giants that have preceded us – - Messrs. Garnek, Phillips, Fernandez, and Roy.  I have witnessed not only their ability to instruct, but also their ability to develop boy leaders.  Speaking from firsthand experience, they have been instrumental in helping my son develop personal skills and confidence.

So it is bittersweet that we send our existing core leaders and their sons off on their next grand adventure.  May your life’s next chapter be filled with excitement, along with some occasional downtime.  To be sure, our doors will always be open to the T-22 giants that have preceded us.  You will always have a standing invite to come hike, canoe, camp, or just sit by the fire to share fellowship and swap stories.  We stand on your shoulders and see a bright future thanks to your example, a mixture of new adult leaders, and a great bunch of high-energy Scouts ready for the next great adventure!

-Mr. Gadsby (Committee Chair)
