ALEX VIRUET’S EAGLE COURT OF HONOR AND DINNER THIS WEEK – Tuesday, June 6, 2017 at Timber Point School, with dinner being served at 6pm and the Eagle Court of Honor starting promptly at 7:30pm.  For those Scouts not attending the dinner, please be at the school at 7pm for the program walk-through.

 

TROOP LEADERSHIP ELECTIONS –  With the High School concert this last Tuesday night, taking many of our older Scouts out of the Troop Meeting, we have moved the Troop and Patrol elections to Tuesday, June 20th in the second floor Community Room of the Great River Fire Department.  If it’s a nice evening, we will have this meeting right on the back lawn near the Troop 205 Camp on this evening.  Class “B” for the night.

 

HARRIMAN STATE PARK HIKE AND TRADITIONAL TROOP 205 THANKSGIVING DINNER  –   A special thank  you to ASM Ed Banville for doing a superb job running this event and for our Troop 205 Head Chef ASM Randy Neubauer for making the trip up to Harriman just to cook the turkeys and Lasagna – one tasty dinner.  Enjoy the photos, taken by ASM Frank Naccarato and ASM Ed Banville:

Merit Badges

 

Attached is the most recent merit badge listing for summer camp.  The majority of scouts got their first choice, and there were only two instances where a preferred merit badge was NOT available.  That scout and parent would have previously gotten an email from me.  Sorry, some of the more specialized, smaller badges fill up quickly!

 

If you wish to make any changes, we can do so but at this point it is based on availability.  Some like Fishing and Small Boat Sailing are filled!  Any questions or changes, please let me know.

A special thanks to Chris and Allstate Insurance.  When you are need of insurance, please contact Allstate Insurance Agency Owner Chris Bernichon at (revised phone number and email address from last week’s Troop e-Lert) 631-208-0220 or email Chis at chrisbern@allstate.com   Please thank him for making this grant happen and tell him that Troop 205 sent you. 

 Troop 205 is in “Good Hands” with Allstate and Allstate Agency Owner and Assistant Scoutmaster Chris Bernichon

A SPECIAL PRESENTATION WILL TAKE PLACE AFTER THE OPENING OF THIS WEEK’S TROOP MEETING – BY SCOUT AND GO-CARTER NICK CONZO!

 I wanted to talk to the troop about the Go Kart racing I participate in.
I am a member of the Long Island Karting Association and I race in the TAG
Jr. class.  I like Go Karting because I get a chance to work on the go kart
with my dad and we try to improve my lap times.  It also lets me demonstrate
the scout oath "on my honor I will do my best".


I like to speeds that I drive at and I like being at the track around other
racers.  My goal is to constantly improve my go kart racing and eventually
move up to race cars.


Thank You
Jason

Saver Fundraiser

 

We need your help to raise funds for our trip to Jamboree. Get your family and neighbors to start spring cleaning early and donate anything that they do not want anymore. Please have them follow the guidelines below:

 

From now to March 25th.

 Hello everyone,

 

I will start to collect any items you may have to donate to our fundraiser this week. I will have the Boy Scout trailer at the Tuesday meeting to collect anything you bring.

 

We will also have the trailer at Timber Point Elementary school on Saturday March 25th at 10:00am. We will need at least 10 boys to come with me to drop off all of the bags to Savers at 12:00pm. We will leave the School at 11:30 so that we can be at Savers at 12:00.

 The only way this is going to work is if everyone pitches in and helps out. I already have about 50 bags in the trailer. So take this week to go through everything so that we can make our goal.

 Saver recommends that all soft goods be placed in Kitchen size garbage bags.

 

Our Goal is to raise $1,000 dollars. If we are going to meet our goal we would need 400 kitchen size bags of soft products.

 So clean out those closets and draws. All the money that we raise will go to our troop's patches and items for each boy.

 Additional details attached.

YOUTH PROTECTION TRAINING FOR TROOP 205 PARENTS AT THIS WEEK’S TROOP MEETING A message from our Troop Committee Chairman, Glen Bernichon:

 

Youth Protection Training is a keystone in protecting the Youth within the Boy Scouts.  The BSA requires this training for all registered leaders and recommends this training for all parents of Scouts within the Troops.

 

With this, we hold a Youth Protection Training session once a year with the parents of our scouts.  I especially encourage the parents of new Scouts to attend this training session so they understand the training that the Troop Leaders undertake.  Since we encourage parent participation in troop activities, it is important that they also participate in Youth Protection Training.

 

We will be holding a training session this week during the Troop meeting.  It takes about 30 minutes to complete and I ask all the parents to attend this session, especially the new parents.

I would also like to give special thanks to Mr. Gieraltowski, who even in his absence, was able to inspire us all through his kind and encouraging words. Thank you for the great service you do every day to support and protect our wonderful country.  God bless America!

 

I am truly honored to be part of such a wonderful troop.  I will always keep the friendships, adventures and memories close to my heart.

Dear Troop Parents and Leaders,

 

A MESSAGE FROM OUR SAGTIKOS DISTRICT EXECUIVE ABOUT A LOCAL SCOUTING FAMILY IN NEED - ELAINE GRAY:

 

Dear Scouters,

 

While so many of us were busy preparing to celebrate and ring in the New Year, fellow Scouter, Unit Commissioner and Scoutmaster for Troop 254 Kevin Basso and his family's plans were dramatically changed.  On Thursday, December 29, 2016 around 5:00 p.m., a fire engulfed Kevin's house in Islip Terrace in flames and unfortunately, Kevin and his family lost everything except for the clothes on their backs.  At the time of the fire no one was home, so thankfully no one was hurt.  Patrice Rebholz, the Committee Chairperson for Troop 254 is working on putting together a "go fund me" to help the family but in the meantime a collection is being taken up by the Troop to purchase Visa or MasterCard gift cards to help the family with their immediate needs.  As you can well imagine they need toiletries, groceries, clothing, in particular winter clothes, and all other everyday items.

 

If there is someone that you feel might want to know about Kevin's misfortune, please feel free to share this email with them.    Scouting is a community of loving, caring, thoughtful friends and we hope that you will find it in your hearts to help this family in their time of need.  Your generosity will be greatly appreciated.  Thanking you in advance for your thoughtfulness and kindness, I remain

 

Yours in Scouting,

 

Elaine Gray, Sagtikos District Executive 

 

TROOP 205 RESPONDS TO FAMILY IN NEED -  As a result of the announcement made at the last Troop Meeting about the Basso Scouting Family in need, as described above, Troop 205 Parents and Leaders have already stepped forward.  We thank all those who have already participated in helping the Basso family, in which we were able to collect a total of $562. at the last Troop Meeting, which has already been contributed to the Basso Family by our Troop Committee Chairman, Glen Bernichon.

 

If you have not yet had the opportunity to make a donation to the Basso Family and would desire to do so, please feel free to make your donation to Glen Bernichon, Committee Chairman or to your Scoutmaster, Mark Businski - at this upcoming Troop 205 Meeting this upcoming Tuesday, which will be Josh Silverman's Eagle Court of Honor.  Thank you for those who have donated and thank you for those who will desire to do so at Tuesday's Troop Meeting.

 TROOP 205 NEWS:

 

DECEMBER CHRISTMAS BAKING CAMPOUT - This last weekend.  A great time was had by all and we thank ASM and Campout Activity Captain, David Ehrhardt for doing a fine job on planning and implementing this great weekend.  We also congratulate our Troop 205 for winning the West Hills Scout Bowl, by beating Troop 327 in a nice game of football on the field on Saturday afternoon.  Way to go, Troop 205!

 

FIND A FLASHLIGHT FROM THE WEEKEND CAMPING TRIP - Scout Ruelin Man-Martinez is missing his black Duracell large flashlight from the campout.  If it ended up in your possession from the weekend, please bring it to Ruelin at tomorrow's Troop Meeting and please let him know at imitablemetal2@gmail.com<mailto:imitablemetal2@gmail.com>.

 

ALL MOVED OUT OF THE FIREHOUSE GARAGE AND INTO THE TROOP 205 "CAMP" - With the assistance of our Quartermaster Joseph Falcon, our ASM Quartermaster Kevin Michaels, our Committee Chairman, Glen Bernichon, along with all the Scouts, Leaders, and Fathers from the West Hills Campout, our Troop 205 equipment has now been totally moved out of the Fire House Garage and how housed in our Troop 205 "Camp," up against the back fence at the Firehouse.  In addition, Committee Chairman completed the electrical work and tie-in to the Fire Department garage, so we are now "powered" in the Troop 205 Camp.

 

This major project would not have been possible without the talents of our Troop Committee Chairman Glen Bernichon who organized the entire project, our Scout Dad's in building, and for all the generous donations of supplies, equipment, and cash to get the job completed.  We also thank ASM Quartermaster Kevin Michaels for building out wood shelving around the metal shelves in the "Camp" to get maximum use of the space.  Enjoy the photos!

Dear Troop Parents and Leaders,

 

 

TROOP 205 NEWS:

 

TROOP 205 COURT OF HONOR LAST WEEK - Great job to our Scouts and Leaders for a fantastic Court of Honor this last week - along with the Troop Committee for the fine job with the refreshments.

 

TROOP 205 SHED, OR "CAMP" MOVING AHEAD IN GREAT SHAPE - With A special and huge thank you to all of our Troop Leaders, Father's, Scouts, and Troop Committee, the hard and dedicated work this last weekend, the Troop 205 "Camp" is progressing in fine shape.  We are so very fortunate to have such talent in our Troop to pull off such a great project!  We also thank so many of the parents and leaders who have provided the materials and money to make this project a reality.  A BIG shout out to our Committee Chairman, Glen Bernichon, who has spent so much of his time and talents in the planning of this project, which is one of the big reasons the construction went so smoothly this weekend.  Between setting the base on the rain on Saturday and the construction yesterday - the Troop 205 Camp is looking great at the Great River Fire House.  Take a drive down to check it out!

A MESSAGE ABOUT THE CAMP 205 FROM OUR COMMITTEE CHAIRMAN AND "CAMP CAPTAIN," GLEN BERNICHON:

 

Just saying "Thank you" just doesn't seem like enough.

 

The amount of talent, expertize, and dedication to building "Camp 205" is amazing. This crew was second to none.  The way everyone just worked together, it looked like you had been working together for several years.

 

I was overwhelmed.

 

Without your Time and Talent this task would not be as far along as it is.

 

Thank you to the Ladies running the "Canteen" as well and keeping everyone fed and hydrated.  We all know that the crew must be fed to keep up the pace that they were working.

 

Again, thank you for helping to build "Camp 205"

 

 

ORDER TROOP NECKERCHIEFS, NECKERCHIEF SLIDES, AND "205" UNIT NUMBERS IN YOUR APPAREL ORDER FROM LAST WEEK?  If so, please see Scoutmaster Mark Businski at tomorrow's Troop Meeting to receive  your merchandise.  All the remaining shirts will be available prior to the November Bike Hike Campout.

Troop 205 Scouts - doing a good turn daily!

10/9/16

As you know, we are planning the construction of “Camp 205”.  This is our storage shed which is a 10x12 structure to be built along the fence by the GRFD back garage.

 

Most of the material has been donated for this project.

 

We are looking for assistance in the construction of the Camp on 10/22 and 10/29.  We will be starting early Saturday morning starting at 8 AM and working for as long as we can to get as much done the first day as possible.  Of course, if you can’t stay the whole day any time you and give is more the welcome.

 

As with Eagle projects we will have bagels / Donuts etc to get us started and pizza for lunch.

 

Attached is the updated list of needed material, if there is anything you can provide please let me know so that I can put it on the list to avoid duplicates.

 

Please let me know if you will be able to assist on either or both day and if you have any tools to help with the construction.

 

On Sunday 10/16/16 we have 2 tasks in preparation for the build:

 

First we need to clear out the area where the Shed is going to be built and to string out the area for leveling. 

 

Second, to help make the Build dates go faster, I will be precutting the studs for the walls and roof rafters as well as doing some preassembly of the base.  This will be on Sunday 10/16/16 and I could use just a couple of people to help me with this task.

DUES DUE AT NEXT WEEK’S TROOP MEETING – $75. Per Scout and $24. per adult leader – with checks made out to Troop 205 and paid to our Troop Treasurer, Jan Bernichon at either this week’s Troop Meeting or next week.

 

HOW ABOUT A LEADERSHIP POSITION AS A DEN CHIEF IN PACK 205?  The Webelos of Pack 205 are very badly in need of a Den Chief or two with their 20 Scouts.  Interested in helping out?  Please send email to:  mark.businski@cbs.com.  Thank you. 

 

LAST NIGHT FOR BOARD OF REVIEWS  – This Week’s Troop Meeting is the last night for Board of Reviews for the upcoming Fall  Troop Court of Honor.

 

WHAT DOES A CLASS “A” UNIFORM LOOK LIKE?  It includes your Troop 205 Neckerchief, Troop 205 Neckerchief Slide, and Scout Socks.  Not wearing this is not only not in Class “A” style, but not polished, either.  Let’s Class “A” it up!

 

SIGN UP FOR POPCORN SELLING DAYS TO PUT MONEY IN YOUR SCOUT ACCOUNT FOR THE JAMBOREE, SUMMER CAMP, WEEKEND CAMPOUTS, DUES, AND EVEN UNIFORMS – a message from our Troop 205 Popcorn Kernel!   

 

Hello Scouts and Parents,

         I have made arrangements for us to setup our Show N Sell Popcorn Table at the following businesses and corresponding dates:

 

            Sat., Oct 8th, 7-11AM @ Costello's Ace Hardware in East Islip

            Sun., Oct. 9th, 7-11AM @ Costello's Ace Hardware in East Islip

            Sat., Oct. 22nd 7-11AM @ Pat's Market & EI Bagels (two tables)

         

         If any scouts are interested in selling at these locations/times you will need to sign up for that particular day and time.  I will have sign-up sheets available at the troop meetings.  The sign-up sheets will be available at the committee table in the back of the cafeteria. If you miss a meeting you may also email/text/call me to request a particular day(s). This is very important as we can not have 70 scouts selling at one time!  If there are too many scouts at one sale we may need to limit it to those scouts who sign up first.          I also will be needing some parents to assist me in chaperoning the sales.  If you would like to help out please let me know when you are available.   

                                                                     Regards, Allie Goess

GARDENING MERIT BADGE NEWS FROM COUNSELOR JOAN DOLLMAN –

 

The scouts visited Bayard Cutting Arboretum last week Sunday on one of the most beautiful days this Fall. We saw the Dahlia Garden and the organic vegetable garden and were hosted by Mr. Watson a shareholder. We then walked along the Connetquot River to the Hidden Oaks Cafe where we enjoyed pie, cookies and refreshments. A most enjoyable and educational experience was had by all. Congratulations to those that completed the merit badge and keep up the good work to those who have partials.

Sincerely, Joan Dollmann
