Cycling Event this weekend - Aug 20th

Posted on Aug 14 2022 - 9:38pm

As you may already know, on Saturday morning, August 20, our troop will take a 15 mile bike trip along the Loveland bike trail. This is a great opportunity to spend good time together, be physically active  and accomplish a requirement for the important biking badge.

I’m writing today to give you some time to make sure that the bike and helmet you intend to use are in good working condition and fits well. Next week I will send more information about exact time and meeting place.

If you have questions in the meantime please call or text me, Uri Sella at (513) 265-2453.

THE NEW CALENDAR IS OUT!!

Posted on Aug 14 2022 - 9:35pm

The schedule for 2022-2023 is complete!!

A couple of points:

`1. Please take a look and note which events are assigned to, adults and scouts alike. There's a couple of adults that were not there, but given history we've asked them to organize some events.  The prep and planning for these events should start several weeks in advance. Some of these events, like the Wright Patt campout, Summer Camp and any Merit Badge Challenges, start months ahead of time.  

Troop 161 annual planning meeting is set for This Saturday, August 13th, from 9:00AM to Noon.

Our Troop 161 annual planning meeting is set for This Saturday, August 13th, from 9:00AM to Noon.  This is where we set our annual schedule of events and outings for the coming year.  WE also determine which scouts will be supported by which adults for the specific events.  Any and all comers are welcome to help in whatever way you can.   We REALLY need extra help in the next year.  Please do everything you can to attend!!

Planning meeting August 13th

Posted on Aug 11 2022 - 2:00pm

Our Troop 161 annual planning meeting is set for Saturday, August 13th, from 9:00AM to Noon.  This is where we set our annual schedule of events and outings for the coming year.  This year is a little bittersweet in that many of the Assistant Scout Masters have scouts that will be aging out in the coming months.  Some of the ASM's traditionally move on also. Which means we REALLY need extra help in the next year.  Any and all comers are welcome

Caving Trip WE NEED SCOUTS TO SIGN UP

Posted on Jul 31 2022 - 10:41pm

Our annual  caving trip leaves on Friday!  As of now, only 5 scouts from 4 families have signed up on the online form.   This has historically been one of the best, if not the best, trips that the troop takes.  It would be great to have a strong showing of scouts, older and new,  There's a form (linked here and up above) for each scouting family to fill out here to get a head count.  If any family has more than 4 non-scout members attending, please let us know!! Warren High has received confirmation that we have reservations at the Great Salt Petre Reserve to go caving on August 6th.  We will leave the church on 8/5, cave all day on 8/6 and return on 8/7.
