First LEGO League
Continuing with our monthly theme of “mechanics and model building” we have a group of first year scouts who will be giving a presentation on First LEGO League. Come find out more about this fun organization. First year scouts will listen to the presentation and then split off to work on knots. The main troop will hold patrol meetings and have a game.

Parent Meeting – 9/11
We will be holding a mandatory parents meeting THIS Tuesday from 7:45-8:45pm. Please have one parent from each family present to learn more about our calendar for this year, learn more about the new PoR rubric, and review the list of volunteer positions that are still open.

Pier Fishing – 9/15
Signups are open for this fun activity. Spend the day fishing off the pier at the Santa Cruz wharf. For more information take a look at the website: http://troop33.org/activities/2012/pier-fishing

Yosemite – 9/21-23
I wanted to give you the latest status of the trip given the recent outbreak of the hantavirus in Yosemite. With the information we have today, our plans are to still go to Yosemite. Safety is our top concern. The National Park Service or the CDC has not issued any recommendations to curtail or stop travel to the park. While in Yosemite, we will follow the recommendations from the National Park Service and the CDC to help reduce any risk.

Parents will need to decide what level of risk they are comfortable with and if they want their scouts attending Yosemite. The National Park Service FAQ is here: http://www.nps.gov/yose/planyourvisit/hantafaq.htm

We only have 1-2 spots open for this trip, click here to learn more: http://troop33.org/activities/2012/yosemite

Board of Review- 9/18
We pushed out the September BoR to 9/18 to allow parents to attend the parent meeting. Scouts, please contact Ms. Mekara @ mparinda@yahoo.com if you want to be scheduled for a BoR.

Coming Soon
