Nelson Carney Now at Home

From Frank Carney:

Nelson is home from the hospital and recovering.  Thank each and all of you for your prayers and concerns.  I have already known, but the last couple of days has proven again and again, that Troop 368 is a marvelous family.  Your support during what has been a frightening and overwhelming experience has been invaluable.  Thank you.

May Campout at Old Kia Kima

We enjoyed wonderful weather with NO RAIN for a great campout at Old Kia Kima last weekend.  The younger scouts knocked out their Scoutcraft requirements, we had some good meals and a show, and scouts got to canoe on a swollen Spring River.

The Varmint Patrol ate well once again.  Saturday dinner was London broil, mashed potatoes, dutch oven broccoli casserole, warm French bread, and salad.  We really pigged out, to be totally honest.  Thanks to everyone who helped make it a great weekend.

The Old Kia Kima campground has excellent facilities that are well maintained.  We appreciate the hospitality of Rob Driesel, head volunteer there, and his crew of dedicated scouts.  Maybe our scouts will want to make this an annual campout on the Troop 368 calendar.

And major props to Frank Carney, the Energizer Bunny.  He was doing three or four things simultaneously from first light till after dinner cobblers.  Then about 10pm Saturday he drove back home for a Sunday morning appointment!  We sincerely appreciate Mr. Carney’s tireless work on this trip.

You can view pics from the trip here.

Please download the May 2011 activity sheet  for the campout at Old Kia Kima in Cherokee, AR, near Hardy, AR.

Please print, fill out, sign and turn in at the next meeting or as soon as possible. Blank forms will be at the meetings.

Order of Arrow candidates and parents, please see the next message to be sent later in the day. The ordeal has been planned for the same weekend at the Kia Kima Scout Reservation in Hardy, AR, which simplifies previous transportation challenges, but obviously elimates participation with the troop at Old Kia Kima.

Also, be on the look out for the Summer Camp permission slip which should be out soon, but let Dave Cline know that you plan to attend and give him your choices of merit badges and/or course selection as soon as possible.
