Parent Roundtable this Thursday - ScoutBook

Posted by linda.fitzjarrell on Aug 20 2016 - 9:03am

At this months' Parent Roundtable we want to introduce you to Scoutbook. You should have already received an invitation to this, but may not realize what it is and how much information you can get from it. Scouting Wire explains that "Scoutbook is a web application designed for mobile devices. Scoutbook delivers a suite of easy-to-use Web-based tools that are helpful to Scouts, parents and unit leaders. It enables units to better communicate, update records, track advancement and manage activities." So this Thursday please bring your mobile device and join us for some conversation about this new tool and how it can help in making Troop 808 the best it can be for our boys!

Troop 808 is adding several to those already offered by Trails End and the Denver Area Council -- including a Troop 808 Exclusive Backpack. The Troop 808 Information Sheet, Take Order Form, Trails End Prize sheet and more were distributed. (If you were not in attendance, or your Scout did not bring this information home with him, please see Mrs. Fitzjarrell at the next meeting or as soon as possible.) Also available, for those who want to add a little more polish to their efforts, are Business Cards you can personalize, Thank You cards, and Military Donation receipts. We're currently in the process of setting up Show & Sells, Neighborhood Blitzes, and other opportunities for Scouts to succeed in achieving their goals. So keep an eye out in the Troop E-Blast, and listen up at Circle-Up for more details. If you know of a great place and/or would like to host one of these, please let us know so that we can get that coordinated. If you have any questions about anything to do with the popcorn fundraiser please contact our Troop Treasurer, Mrs. Fitzjarrell. she will get you the answer. Treasurer@bsatroop808.org

Indian Peaks Wilderness Backpack Trip - Part Deux

Posted by kenny.davis on Aug 14 2016 - 8:55pm

The backpack trip was great and I wanted to thank the Scouts and Adults that made it happen. With some encouragement from Mr Stone we decided to take the 4WD trail up to the Middle St VrainTrialhead, from there it was a 3-ish mile hike to Red Deer Lake (GPS, Google, and the USFS seemed to have differening opinions on the exact distance). We did a day hike up to a snow feild, ate quite a few wild raspberries, fished a bit and generally had a really nice trip. I've posted a few pictures from the trip. Since Large Group Wilderness Area permits are limited to 12 people, I'd love to have 2 groups for 2017, so start clearing your calendars for next August.

Webelos Weekend

Posted by kenny.davis on Aug 7 2016 - 7:37pm

Webelos Weekend was a big hit, our boys had a great time teaching the younger scouts (both Webelos and Girls Scouts) and the event went off really well. We will want to be sure to look for this one next year and keep it on the calendar. I’ve uploaded a couple of pictures of our axe yard to the website. After the Webelos Weekend wrapped up Jackson and I headed up to Camp Dick to scout out the backpack trip, which leads me to my next announcement….

Indian Peaks Wilderness Backpack Trip

Posted by kenny.davis on Aug 7 2016 - 7:37pm

The original plan for the backpack trip is to hike 3 miles to Red Deer Lake from the Middle St Vrain Road Trailhead. Middle St Vrain Road Trailhead is 4 miles up a 4WD road from Camp Dick. I have read varying reports on the condition and difficulty of the road so we decided to scout it out today. Short version of the story, I have found the limits of the 4WD abilities of the Montero and ended up getting towed back to Lakewood. I’m iffy for driving this weekend. Turns out we will have to park at Camp Dick Campground and take the Buchanan Pass trail to Middle St Vrain Trailhead so we will want to get an early start on Friday. I’d like to leave the Church about 9am if possible. Please email me this week at kenny@kennydavisarchitects.com and we can finalize rides and food. I propose the each father/scout team buy their own food and Max and Cody team up on food. I understand Max would like to plan and shop for the food as a rank advancement so if it works for everyone, Max can get the food for he and Cody and they can settle up later.
