  2. We have several event and activity signups that are being handled online through the troop website:

The troop sells in the area on weekends in March within our local community and this weekend is the first weekend selling. All shifts are available and adults will be needed. Look for more information from Steve Schwab via email and at the troop meeting. I’ll also get that information posted to the site.
    • Second up is the trip to the Paul Robinson Observatory at Voorhees State Park on Friday March 23rd. We don’t yet have a confirmed time but it will be in the evening
    • Next is the Whitewater Rafting trip at Jim Thorpe PA on Sunday April 29th. That date has now been finalized.

Annual Fertilizer Sale Signup Available 

Weekends in March is when Troop 191 has its annual fertilizer fundraiser. Each year the troop provides area residents with competitively priced fertilizer products which are sold by the scouts door to door in caravans on Saturdays and Sundays in March. The funds raised are used to help troop expenses but a portion of all proceeds go into the scouts troop account. This account can be used by scouts to offset camping trips, camping supplies and summer camp.

Please take a minute to have your son sign up for as many shifts he is available for; submit a separate signup for each shift. Adults are also encouraged to help out and sign up. We generally need several adults per to help with driving and provide supervision for the boys. All adult time is also counted towards their sons account or as leaders/committee, into their own account.

Middle School Technology Design Challenge Signup Available 

Mrs. Amy Bernick has offered to work with scouts interested in competing in the Middle School Technology Design Challenge on April 21, 2012. The event will be held at Bridgewater Raritan Middle School.

The main goal is to encourage the students to strategize the best way to creatively solve a problem. In this case, the problem is to score as many points when attempting these challenges. Some parts of these tasks are quite difficult, so compromises may need to happen. Like any challenge, the students should develop a plan (or plans) with timeline or steps. Part of the plan could be to create a team and divide up the work.

Mrs. Bernick is looking for a few more scouts to compete at this event and offers an excellent opportunity for those working on the Robotics Merit Badge or those scouts interested in beginning the Robotics Merit Badge.

See this document for more information about the Challenge.

Scouts that wish to participate can Signup Online. Adults will also be needed for transportation and required two-deep leadership.
