September 2018 Events – Note II

Folks,

The outings/events in September are: Cow Harbor weekend activities, Watch Hill Camping trip.

Tonight 9/12 is our first meeting. We have other normal weekly meetings on September 19 & 26.

Cow Harbor Weekend activities 9/15 & 9/16
On Saturday (9/15) we work the mile three water stop on Ocean Ave by Crinkle Ct. We’ll meet at 7:45. Try to be on time as it will be difficult to get there close to the race start time as roads will be closed. During the race we hand out water to the runners. At the midway point of the race, it is much appreciated by the runners. When the last of the runners are through, we clean up the cups the runners left behind. This is a Class B dress event. Troop t-shirt is fine and you’ll also receive a Volunteer shirt from the race organizers. Please bring a rake, snow shovel or broom. There are a lot of cups on the street afterwards.

It gets hectic handing out water to the runners. I encourage parents to come help. Any parents or scouts running, good luck and have fun. I want to see 8 minute miles from all of you.

On Sunday we have (9/16) we march in the Cow Harbor Day Parade. We will meet at our normal location on Laurel Avenue north of the Brosnan Admin building at 11:30. All scouts are expected to attend the parade with exceptions for boys marching with Band, Football, Fire Eaters, or other school affiliation. This is a Class A uniform dress event. Shirt, neckerchief, slide, and shorts or pants. No athletic shorts or pants please. Drop your son off, then find a nice shady spot along the route. When done, we’ll stay at the end of the route by the parking lots so you can locate us.

Also on Sunday the church has asked if any boys could stop up after the parade and help out with some Arts and Crafts they are doing with some younger kids. It would be nice if some scouts could go up after the parade and help out. I’ll leave it up to the individual if they can go.

Watch Hill, Fire Island Camping 9/21 – 9/23
Back on the calendar this year after a two year hiatus is the Watch Hill camping trip. The campground has reopened after extensive renovation. We’ll meet at Church Friday 9/21 at 6pm to load the gear. Last ferry leaves Patchogue at 8:30pm. We need to be there then or we’ll have to rely on a water taxis with increased cost.

Cost for the trip is $20 per scout to Troop 410. Also please also bring approximately $20 on Friday for the cost of the ferry. The ferry Web site has it at $17 for a round trip ticket.

Hope everyone can make the trip. I never been there, but hear that it’s a good time for all. Permission slip due by 9/19 meeting. Please also sign up.
