Very fun…

50 miles closer to Eagle

You could say it came down to the wire. Yes, quite an appropriate description, indeed. This requirement for Cycling merit badge was completed with six minutes and 10 days left on Joey's “youth clock”. Cycling merit badge is the last merit badge he needed to fulfill all the requirements for his Eagle Scout rank before he turns 18 on August 17. Noah and Joey, both Life Scouts, crossed the 50-mile point at the intersection of Hudson and E. Davis Blvd. at 2:39 p.m.

The 50-mile ride is considered to be one of the toughest physical challenges of all merit badges. To earn Cycling merit badge, a total of 150 miles must be ridden (two 10-milers, two 15-milers, two 25-milers and one 50-miler). The merit badge requirement states that the 50-mile ride must be completed within eight hours. The boys rode the first 13.5 miles on the Suncoast Parkway Trail and completed the final 36.5 miles in South Tampa. They had six minutes to spare after battling fatigue and dehydration on one of the hottest days this summer.

A minimum of 21 merit badges must be earned for Eagle, 12 of which must come from a list of required merit badges. Boys can choose one from the Cycling, Hiking, or Swimming group to count towards the total of 12 required Eagle merit badges. Noah has now earned all three in that group with the completion of today's ride.

Joey completed his Eagle project near the end of July; Noah is aiming to complete his Eagle project in the fall.

Congratulations to both boys on joining an elite group of Troop 22 members who have completed this grueling requirement! (Special thanks to Mr. Gaines for providing the lift to the Suncoast Parkway Trail at 6:00 AM!)

Outstanding collection of photos, what a great opportunity to get a sense of being there. Thanks to all the adult leaders that attended to watch over our young men. Happy to see that everyone had a great time. Troop 22 ROCKS!

Thank you so much for posting all the great pictures! It looks like it was a blast! Thank you also for taking your ‘guest’ from troop 4 – he hasn’t stopped talking about it since. And thank you to all the dedicated adult leaders who gave not only this week, but give to the boys all year long.

A Summer Camp Note to Parents and Friends of Troop 22

Parents and friends of Troop 22:

We are very fortunate to have found a great group of adult leaders who gave up a week of their vacation to escort our boys to Woodruff Scout Reservation in Blairsville, GA. For those whose sons joined Troop 22 just this year, a Fat Loss Cheat nd for those Scouting families with sons attending Woodruff for their first time, please know that our adult leaders will enjoy benefits that will have positive residual effects on the future of our troop.

One of the truly wonderful and beneficial program highlights at Woodruff is their week-long adult training programs. It has been proven many times over that training is the key to success in administering a FUN, enriching, and appropriate Scouting program. The Boy Scouts of America has invested a lot of time and effort to create a rich heritage of guiding boys on their paths to becoming solid men and valued citizens to our communities. So it is with the trip to Woodruff that our adult leaders will be investing more of their time to learn how to better administer the Scouting program to our youth.

But before you begin thinking that these adults will be locked in a stuffy classroom instead of enjoying the beauty of the Great Smoky Mountains, I can assure you these people will be having FUN both inside and outdoors! From basic Youth Protection Training held in a classroom to Paddlecraft Safety held at the lakefront, there will be plenty of good times to go around. The staff there will make the training memorable and our leaders will get to mingle with other leaders from around the region.

Then there is the Scoutmaster Merit Badge Program. This is unique only to Woodruff, and is not an official BSA program, but it is designed for adult leaders to have MORE FUN while they are at camp. Leaders must choose to complete 12 items from a list of 20 requirements that include

  • 5. Go Fishing
  • 14. Learn to tie a new knot. Teach it to a Scout.
  • 15. Participate in the Polar Bear Plunge. (Troop 22 practically owned this event in 2010!)
  • 17. Sit on a rock and ponder life for a while.

And the personal favorite of most of the adult leaders:

  • 18. Take a nap one afternoon. (Sometimes stretched over multiple days.)

Wednesday all Scouts and leaders in camp will be treated to a very inspirational flag retirement ceremony held at the lakefront amphitheatre. In an amazing display of patriotism that will bring mist to your eyes, the camp assembles an evening ceremony guaranteed to leave you speechless. Complete with a real 21-gun salute and a roaring campfire, the ceremony involves veterans of the armed forces and fire, rescue, and police departments; the people who have given their lives to insure the peace and safety of our country.

Thursday is typically a favorite day for everyone because that’s the day Scouts and leaders have the opportunity to

  • Go horseback riding.
  • Go whitewater rafting.
  • Stay at camp and hang out.

Oh, yes, and then there’s the Scoutmaster Brunch and Scoutmaster Dinner…and every morning leaders have a special chow line with bonus foods like yogurt, oatmeal, bagels, and juice. (You have to fuel all that fun and learning, right?)

Friday will end the week with an entertaining waterfront show by the amphitheater followed by a fun bonfire and the awards troops and individuals earned throughout the week.

So let’s stop admiring these adults for “giving up” a week of their vacation time, thinking all they’re doing is herding cats (our boys). Let’s think about all the fun we should be having with them right now and admire how they managed to hold all of this “insider information” from you. (The secret’s out now, but remember they’re on a bus heading to camp…they’ll be no torch-bearing lynch mob.)

Of course, let us also be grateful we have so many good people dedicated to making sure the program is FUN for ALL of us.

Here’s hoping you have all been enjoying a great summer!

Yours in Scouting,

Kim Fatica, Assistant Scoutmaster
