Please sign up for the Annual Mt. Rubidoux Trail cleanup and lighting taking place on April 15th – 16th.  This is a little over two weeks away. This will be the 100th Anniversary of this the oldest Service Project west of the Mississippi. We need to help get the trail ready then light the trail for those going to the top of Mt. Rubidoux for the sunrise service on Easter. Bring gloves, water, shovels, racks, anything to knock down weeds that have grown due to the rains this winter. More details will be given at the next Troop meeting.

Since we will be participating at the Trail Cleanup and Trail Lighting over the weekend of April 15th-16th we will take a much deserved break and will NOT have a meeting on Monday, April 17th.

We Encourage All Scouts to get Leadership training. Below are a list of the trainings for the Scouts coming up.

Cedar Badge – May 5,  6:00PM – May 6,  7:00PM - $28.00 (if paid by April 14th) Held at LDS Church, Blaine Street, Riverside – NEED TO REGISTER BY APRIL 14TH FOR THE SPRING COURSE. FLYER ATTACHED!!
NYLT – June 12 – 17 OR August 1 – 6. Cost is $325.00.  ( Need to have completed Cedar Badge training) Held at Camp Emerson Idyllwild
Foxfire – June 10 – 17 - $315.00 (Need to have completed Cedar Badge & NYLT training) Held at Camp Emerson Idyllwild

IMPORTANT: Before you register for the NYLT or Foxfire training you need to meet with Mr. McVeigh for approval. Also there is the potential for some scholarship monies that can offset your cost for the NYLT or Foxfire training. If you are interested you need to write a letter to the Troop 270 Committee requesting a donation and explaining why you want to go to this training. THIS LETTER NEEDS TO BE TURNED INTO ME BY NEXT WEEK (APRIL 3RD)!

Be sure to bring your Scout Books to the Troop meetings!  This is part of your uniform. We are working on Rank Advancements but you need your book in order to participate. All Scouts should be in Full Class “A” uniform with a Class “B” shirt under their Class “A” for activities and games. Please come properly dressed to the meetings!

For this Summer we will be going to Camp Tahquitz located in the Big Bear / Barton Flats Mountain area. This is a Great camp and local which is nice. We have a signup sheet so Please sign up and make your deposits and payments to Mr. Grace as we have to make regular payments to keep our spot. We are going to Summer Camp the week of July 9th – 15th. Cost for Scouts is around $400.00 and Adults $230.00.

We are looking for someone to take over managing our Script Program. The person who has been in charge since we started this program many years ago is stepping down so we would appreciate someone stepping up. This should not take much time to manage. We can give you details and answer any questions if you are interested. Please see me if you can help. TY!!

Thank you,
Michael McVeigh
