For all parents of boys that either joined or crossed over recently, there will be an orientation meeting on April 14, at 7pm during the troop meeting. We will cover everything you need to know about the troop, outings, and summer camp.
We had our final crossover (Pack 205) last night, and once again had a great turnout. Thanks to all the Scouts and adults who came out to support the Webelos and parents who are joining our troop. I think we had the best turnout of all the troops at 3 out of the 4 crossover ceremonies.
Our incoming class has a total of 19 boys from the following packs: 429, 459, 1459 and 205.
Great job guys!
Pack 205 is crossing over 1 Webelos tonight. Let’s make our best showing yet!
Caney Creek Preserve (this is a public park)
2755 Caney Rd, Alpharetta, GA 30041
There are 2 entrances off Caney Rd. We want the westernmost entrance, nearest the playground:
Pack 1459 is crossing over 5 Webelos to our troop this Sunday. Just like with the other 2 crossovers, let’s be the best represented troop there!
Location: St. Aiden’s Episcopal Church
13560 Cogburn Rd,
Alpharetta, GA 30004
They are doing Blue and Gold starting at 5pm, followed by crossover at around 6pm. We only need to be there for the crossover part, but feel free to come earlier if you want to re-live your Cub Scouts days.
Webelos Woods is March 7-9, and will be at Bert Adams.
This is a great outing for:
- Cross-over Scouts
- Older Scouts serving as troop guides teaching the newly crossed-over Scouts about the Scout rank
- Scouts working on the Cooking merit badge
- Scouts willing to represent the spirit of Troop 429 and BSA during Webelos Woods
Two nights camping and great chance for service hours and fun with the Troop. We are planning an Ultimate Frisbee game after the day’s activities on Saturday. Sign-up now!
Cost is $30 per scout and $10 per adult which will cover camping, food and gas.
Sign-up deadline: March 3
Pack 429 is crossing over 6 Webelos to our troop this Sunday. Just like with the 459 crossover, let’s be the best represented troop there!
Location: Hembree Park Campground
850 Hembree Road
Once inside Hembree Park, drive past the tennis courts on the right.
At the fork, bear right (follow the sign for Fields 1, 2, 3, 4).
Just after the bridge, turn right into the parking lot by the playground, before Field 1.
The Pavilion and Camping area are down the hill at the far end of the parking lot.
NOTE: Bring your own chairs and rain gear!
Our first crossover for 2014 is this coming Tuesday for Pack 459.
Location: Alpharetta UMC (69 N Main St, Alpharetta, GA)
We need at least 3 scouts and 2 adults to attend, but we should have a lot more than that!
As announced in the troop meeting and by troop email, the upcoming caving outing has moved from Raccoon Mountain to Cloudland Canyon.
Please see the Next Outing page for up-to-date information about the outing.
The next payment for summer camp is due on January 20. The amount is $140. The final payment of $145 will be due in April.
We’ve had a great response to the Webelos-oriented outing, and are now at capacity. Thanks to everyone who signed up! It should be a fun night.
