Fish Fry Schedule

Looks like the fish fry should be huge this weekend. We already have about 120 presold tickets. We will need a lot of help. Big thanks already to Mr Bo and Mrs Bynum and Mr Bill for their work already. We will meet at 6:30 tonight to set up dining flies and get cole slaw ready. If possible bring a large spoon if you want to cup cole slaw. Tomorrow morning we will get started at 9am. Hope to see everyone this weekend. Thanks for all your help.

I didn't think about sending it out before the summer camp break. Anyway the signup form for the July campout is clickable on the calendar. We will be going to a local lake and camping, canoeing and fishing. We will try to complete the fishing merit badge also. The worksheet for that badge is http://meritbadge.org/wiki/images/2/2e/Fishing.pdf Scouts will need that worksheet, also if the Scouts could practice those knots on the worksheet that will speed up that part of earning the badge. Scouts will need tents and standard dump camping equipment, chairs, swimtrunks, water shoes sunscreen and bug spray. They will cook as Patrols. The cost is $15 to cover food. Gas donations to the drivers are always appreciated.

Fish fry was a success!

Thanks to everyone's efforts we earned over $700 for the boys of Troop 165 with today's fish fry- woohoo!  We appreciate everyone in the community that came out and supported the scouts today. 

When you see them be sure and thank the following people:  Tanya for keeping things organized and straight, Kim for the fish preparation, Bo and Bill for all the cooking, Cheryl, Chris, Mary Beth, and Susan for taking care of the front and filling in where needed, the boys that helped serve, run, and clean up, and Doug for all that he does.  Good job!

Be sure and get your scout out to sell fish fry tickets this weekend! 

The fish fry is on 8/24, so money and unsold tickets are due back to the troop Tuesday night. 

We'll need everyone to turn out to help with the fish fry - be sure and let Mr. Doug know that you'll be there and where you can help out.

Troop 165 Fish Fry coming up 8/24

This Troop runs on a shoestring budget. We do not want to increase dues. We hold several fundraisers during the year to help the Scouts raise money to go to Summer Camp. We only hold one fundraiser where the Troop receives any reward. That is our fish fry. Tickets are $8.00. For every  ticket sold the Scout receives $1.00. The rest of the profit goes to the Troop to help with expenses.

We have expenses few other Troops have. We have our own power bill.  Our own water bill. We have a Scout bus, a canoe trailer, 5 canoes, a scout trailer and our very own Scout Hut to meet in. All of which require money to operate.

Unlike a lot of Troops we do not have a financial supporter. We have to take care of ourselves. That is why this fundraiser is so important to us.

We ask that every parent volunteer at least 3 hours toward the fish fry.  ** Please **

August 5th @ 7pm is our planning meeting.

Please attend and help the scouts of Troop 165.
