Important reminders about Mass Jam -Saturday, October 7th to 9th

Posted on Sep 24 2023 - 11:39pm

Now that the signups have closed the planning has begun. There is a lot of things to consider for Mass Jam since there are Scouts from all around Mass. The parking is a long way away from where we will be camping. We will need to spend some time this Saturday Sept 30th to cleanout the trailer and organize and set aside needed to troop gear. We need to pack troop gear in one car going down ahead of the Scouts on Friday night. We also need to pack all bulky personal gear the night before at the Moody resident on Thursday Oct 5th. On the departure day, Saturday Oct 7th, we will be asking Scouts to arrive at the church at 6:45am as we wish to leave at 7am sharp. The trip is a 2 hour ride away.  The Scouts and leaders will also need to bring a bag lunch as camp setup and activities start right away at 9am with opening ceremonies at 11am.  Please don't forget when you are packing your day pack that it have to be kept in their lap on a School Bus shuttle. There is no extra room on the shuttle for luggage or bulky items. That is why is it very important to send the bulk of the equipment ahead of the Troop. More details and instructions along with a packing list will be discussed at Wednesday's meeting. We do want to be prepared to have an amazing time!!

The troop is planning a lot of fun activities this year and we need to raise funds to keep the Scouting costs down. We want to make activities accessible for everyone. The Committee Members have considered a number of fundraisers. We have some fun events in the planning stages and will be announcing when we will be making it on the schedule shortly. Among the ones we intend on doing are selling refreshments at Shrewsbury yard sale day and at pickle ball events, Dairy Queen, Raising Cain's, and Texas Roadhouse restaurant nights and gift card sales. We will be doing two bottle and can drives, a Halloween recruitment  activity (BOO deliveries to Webelo's)  and our second annual Pancake breakfast in March. If any adult would like to help with organizing an event or have ideas for other fundraisers, please see with the Scout Master.
