Philmont Trip Announced!

Posted on May 21 2015 - 8:36pm

Troop 730 is sending a crew of 7-12 (or multiple crews) to BSA high adventure Philmont Base in June 2017, see approximate event dates. We will spend 11 days backpacking Sangre de Cristo Mountains in New Mexico. Philmont is one of three BSA Triple Crown bases, besides Northern Tier in Minnesota/Canada, and Sea Base in Florida. Crew members have to be 14 and older at the start of the trip. $100 deposit is necessary to reserve a spot. Please keep in mind that Philmont does not refund fees. Crews are 7-12 members. Philmont charges $870 per crew member for 2016 treks. On prior occasions we drove from Dallas, which is a 10-hour trip, and flew to Albuquerque and rented cars. Cost of transport and one extra night came up to about $120 per crew member. Please contact ASM Zapendowski at 214-908-4969214-908-4969 or at piotr.zapendowski@gmail.com for more details.

All Scouts and Parents are invited to our Troop's next Eagle Court of Honor on Saturday morning, May 30th in the St. Mark's Chapel honoring Joe Lofgren, Daniel Chavez, Joe Durst and Enzo Navarro.  The ceremony begins promptly at 10:30 so please arrive a few minutes early to be seated.  Parents, we strongly encourage you to bring your younger scouts to see the Eagle Scout ceremony.  It is a wonderful way to demonstrate to your younger scouts what they are striving for, and Troop 730's ceremony is particularly beautiful. Everyone is invited to a reception in the Great Hall immediately following the ceremony.  If you plan on attending, please use the Event Registration feature on the right side of this website so we can get an accurate guest count.  Thank you.

Camporee T-Shirts Available

Posted on May 14 2015 - 1:37pm

Hi Troop — to commemorate the extra-ordinary weather that we got to enjoy at the LOST Camporee in April, the District has designed special t-shirts for the occasion. The shirt features a lightening bolt hitting a tent (which didn’t actually happen, but it sure looks cool on a t-shirt!) and a tent flooded with water (which did actually happen, to many Scouts & adults). Those who had inflatable sleeping pads fared better, as they floated inside their tents - a very similar experience to sleeping on a water bed… but wetter. By the way, these are official BSA shirts.. If you are interested in purchasing one, they are $15 each. A photo of the t-shirt is attached to this announcement. Please send me an email with the size shirt you want. They come in Adult Small, Medium, Large, and XL and etc. If you didn’t attend Camporee, but want the shirt because it’s just so cool… plan to attend the NEXT Camporee and we’ll call it good, since it’ll certainly storm at that one, too. Did you know that the word Camporee is Latin for “bad weather”?  Carolyn Stalder, carolyn.photo@sbcglobal.net, 214-357-1300
