Sun. 08/27/17: Day activity: Pool party/planning meeting
August 27, 2017 @ 3:00 pm - 8:00 pm| Free
Please RSVP so we can plan accordingly:
Steve and Cindy Porter (from Porter’s Army Navy), big fans and strong supporters of TSG, have generously insisted that the troop uses there residence once again for our planning meeting/pool party. It is time to plan for next year goals and activities, and present major changes and a new direction.
All troop members are invited and encouraged to come to the Porters’ residence from 1500 to 2000 at:
1425 Broadmoor Lane
Even if you cannot stay long, please come to the planning meeting. We will do that first, hopefully close to 1530 for an hour or so, so we can get as many people involved as possible.
- within approximately 1hr of Irving
- 1 central activity for the cadets, long enough to occupy them for at least half a day
- firewood available, or built-in time to collect it
- free venue if possible
This is your troop, and your input is required. It would also be a good time to bring up any general suggestions or issues anyone might have.
The pool has a slide, diving board, and there is a concrete area with basketball hoop. The dads and officers will be able to meet either on the outside patio or inside. The troop will provide/handle dinner on the grill. Since our policy specifically prohibits alcohol on campouts, and this is designed to be a more relaxed atmosphere where safety is not such an issue, adults are authorized to bring the beverage of their choice, while remembering that “…our adult leaders are gentlemen and know the sinfulness of drunkenness…” (Officers’ Manual) and that we have an example to set.
This event is free, but we will have a donation jar to help cover the cost of food.
Naturally, bring bathing suits!
