Congratulations to Jackson Ranger, Troop 3’s Newest Eagle Scout

Posted on Mar 29 2019 - 8:40pm

Join me in congratulating our Senior Patrol Leader Jackson Ranger for achieving the rank of Eagle Scout on Wednesday night. While serving as SPL, Jackson planned and directed his Eagle Service Project building raised gardens for residents of Manchester’s elderly housing at The Plains and Newport Park.  Reports are that Jackson was particularly impressive during his Board of Review.

Scoutland is officially only 10 days away.  Any scout that is planning to camp out at Scoutland must hand in their permission forms and $20 by Monday, April 1st.  If a scout has a Scout or Tenderfoot rank, and/or would like to participate in any future backpacking trips, I encourage them to attend.

August 2020 - Northern Tier High Adventure Booked

Posted on Feb 23 2019 - 5:54pm

How would you like to spend 9 days canoeing and exploring the waters in Bissett Manitoba Canada? Troop 3 will be doing a trek in August 2020 at the Northern Tier High Adventure base. Northern Tier is the Boy Scouts of America’s gateway to adventure in the Great Northwoods. In the summer, Scouts from Northern Tier’s three wilderness canoe bases explore millions of acres of pristine lakes, meandering rivers, dense forests and wetlands in Northern Minnesota, Northwest Ontario and Northeast Manitoba. Northern Tier crews paddle in almost 6 million acres of exclusively canoe-access wilderness from the Boundary Waters Canoe Area Wilderness (BWCAW) of Minnesota to the Atikaki Provincial Park of Manitoba. Unofficially regarded as the “Most Extreme High Adventure in Scouting,” the Northern Expeditions (“Bissett”) Canoe Base is the most rugged and remote region paddled by Northern Tier crews. All crews enter the wilderness via a twenty-minute float plane to a canoe cache located at the heart of the combined 2.5 million acres of Atikaki Provincial Park and Woodland Caribou Provincial Park, an area paddled by only a handful of canoeists each year. Northern Pike, Walleye and Channel Catfish abound the Bissett region. The fishing truly is world class and the difficult geography ensures that it will remain so. All trips are fully outfitted and provisioned. A highly trained staff member, called an Interpreter, accompanies all crews on their trek.

Uniforms are an important part of being a Scout and being a cohesive group.  As a new way to encourage events to get in the spirit, we’re going to turn this into a little competition.  

Have you thought of the Troop Committee? 90 minutes a month is all it takes.

Posted on Oct 2 2018 - 10:06pm

We want to encourage everyone, including new parents to join our Troop committee.  We need representatives from all the younger scouts so we stay in touch and keep the committee strong.  The Committee is like the Board of Directors of the Troop whose primary responsibility is supporting troop leaders in delivering quality program and handling troop administration. The troop committee is responsible for conducting the business of the troop, setting policy, and helping the Scoutmasterand Scouts with the outdoor program and other planned activities. The committee also has the responsibility to provide adults for boards of review. This is an important responsibility and is one area where help is always needed and appreciated. Our Committee meets the first Tuesday night of the month during the scout year.
