Mondays meeting will be heavily based on summer camp, as it is the last full troop meeting we have until then. In order to be successful, please print out the attached merit badge choosing paper and bring it to collaborate with your friends on what merit badges you want to take.
Note: I will not be at the meeting, and I am leaving for NYLT tomorrow, so please direct all your questions to Mr. Karn and the ASPL's.

Justin Harrison's Eagle Project

Posted on Jun 25 2016 - 9:46pm

Hello Troop families. My name is Justin Harrison. I am a Life scout in our troop since 2009 and have been working on earning my Eagle Scout rank. It has been a long journey and I'm at the point of completing my Eagle Scout project.

My Eagle Project will be conducted on July 2, just two weeks away!  We will be constructing a storage bench, redesigning a teacher's administration office/lunch room and will also be painting another room to be used for a Science center. The project location is at Heart Christian Academy, a home school school, which I attended while in Middle School. I could really use the help and would appreciate your support.

Breakfast and lunch will be provided.  We will be starting work at 8 am, but will have food set up at7:30, so come early for food.  

If you would please email me at justinrules98@yahoo.com or call/text to 949-584-1024 if you would be able to assist.  You can also sign up on the troop website at http://troop918.com/node/2609.  Any help during the day would be greatly appreciated.  If you have any questions, please feel free to contact me.  

Thank you,  Justin Harrison

Summer Camp Payments

Posted on Apr 9 2016 - 9:07pm

Your help is needed . . .

We have made reservations based on RSVP's for Summer Camp and the Troop is following a payment schedule in sending payments to Camp Kern.  We have a payment due to in about a week, however, several families are a bit behind in making your payments to the Troop.

Most families have not made the $120 payment that was due last week, April 4th.  A few of you have a little more to make up.  Please go to the Online Payments link to bring your account up to date as soon as possible.

If you have any questions about payments, please contact Dave Klein or Carmen Chan.  

Please click here to see the payment schedule     Thanks for your assistance!

Reimbursement Receipts

Posted on Apr 9 2016 - 9:07pm

Do you have receipts from camping food or other expenses?  

Please do not hold onto your receipts for more than 30 days. In fact, we would appreciate it if you would turn in a reimbursement request at the next Troop meeting after you have spent the funds.

You can submit your receipts to the Troop Treasurer for reimbursement. Click on the Files link on our website menu to find a reimbursement request form. Fill it out and submit it to our Troop Treasurer, Mrs. Carmen Chan.  She can also be reached by email at treasurer@troop918.com

Don't forget:  Our budget plan for meals is 3-4-5.  We plan to spend $3 for breakfast, $4 for lunch and $5 for dinner per scout in your patrol.  Account for the total meals your patrol will be preparing and the amount of Scouts registered to attend from your patrol and then do the math.  You should also plan to make you any desert, snacks or other special purchases fit within that budget as well.

Eagle Scout Board of Review Help Needed

Posted on Apr 3 2016 - 6:24am

Are you an adult 21 or older???   Can you ask questions???   
Do you know even just a little about what the rank of Eagle Scout means???

The Saddleback District needs adults to sit on Eagle Scout Boards of Review...  and it can be you!
Just about anyone can do it.  If you answered yes to the questions above, you're qualified.  You don't even need tobe a registered Scouter. 

Sitting on Eagle Scout Boards of Review is a great way to support Scouting.  In truth, you'll get more out of it than you ever imagined.  If you have a Scout coming up through the ranks, it's a great way for you to learn about what's coming down the road. We'll give you easy on the job training!

Please consider supporting this very worthy part of Scouting.  Click here to sign up or email Jackie Cadieux at gojack@cox.net for more information.
