Patrol Outing ***Spartans *** Nighthawks*** Day hike Stone Mountain NC

Posted on Feb 6 2016 - 8:34pm

The Spartan and Nighthawk patrols will be going on a day hike to Stone Mountain, NC.  We will be meeting at Siler on Saturday February 13th at 7:30 am. You will need to bring a lunch and money for food on the way home. In addition to food you will need water, first aid kit, appropriate clothing and hiking boots. The hike is a "strenuous" hike. I know this is short notice, but with the changing of patrol leaders we will not have a lot of time to plan a trip.  Please sign up as soon as possible. Adults are needed to drive and encouraged to hike with the patrol.

This year's collection was another big success for Troop 46.  We collected over 1,000 lbs of food for the Union County Shelters.

Thank you to everyone who helped collect, pass out bags, deliver the food, and coordinate this annual event!

Marinated Chicken Dinner Information

Posted on Feb 3 2016 - 7:48pm

Marinated Chicken Dinner tickets were distributed at the January 25th troop meeting.  

Once a scout sells their first 10 tickets, they earn $2.00 for each ticket sold ($20.00) and will earn an additional $3.00 per ticket sold after the initial 10 tickets (starting with ticket #11).  These funds can be used towards summer camp or other troop fees.  

Please keep in mind, this is a Troop fundraiser and HELPS the troop to provide various programs throughout the year without having additional costs to the families or scouts.  Without participation in this Troop fundraiser, we are not able to offer programs like the no cost Camp In, bus to summer camp, quarterly Court of Honors, etc.  We also use this money for Eagle gifts, trailer upkeep and to purchase necessary supplies for the Patrols.  

We encourage each family to participate in this fundraiser to support your Troop.

This year we have added the option of donating meals to the homeless and you can receive a tax write off.  All paperwork needed is included with the chicken dinner tickets your scout brought home two weeks ago.

Please review it and if you have any questions, please let us know. 

Any unsold tickets will need to be turned in on February 22nd.

The goal is for 100% participation for each scout. If we reach our goal, the Troop will have Knockerball during one of the upcoming Troop meetings.

Please sign up to help -->  http://www.signupgenius.com/go/30e044ba5ae2da75-marinated2

Remember, without everyone's support, this fundraiser is not possible!

2016 Camp Card Sale

Posted on Feb 1 2016 - 4:43pm

2016 Camp Card

Old Hickory District and Central North Carolina Council

Boy Scouts of America

 

 

HOW THE CAMP CARD SALE WORKS:

  • The 2016 Camp Card is designed to help youth fund their way to 2016 Camp programs
  • This is a Risk Free Unit Sales project where all Scouts can earn their way to Camp, Philmont, other activities or simply support unit program or supplies needs
  • Each Camp Card will sell for only $5.00 to the general public and will have multiple food, service and entertainment discounts for the customer to use throughout the year
  • The participating unit will keep 50% commission of the sales for each Camp Card sold! Troop 46 gives 100% of commission earned to the scout.  Each card sold equals $2.50 for the scout.  
  • With the $5.00 Harris Teeter and Food Lion discount, the Camp Card more than PAYS FOR ITSELF plus your scout receives $2.50 in camp credit!  Also, Harris Teeter will take the Food Lion discount and Publix also takes competitor's coupons and will honor both $5.00 off coupons if you don't shop at Harris Teeter or Food Lion.
  • Scouts can use the money earned for summer camp, Philmont or other camping activities throughout the year.

The Value of selling Camp Cards:

Participating in the Camp Card allows your Scout to directly fund their way to various Camp programs

Program                                         Cost            Sales per Youth (in cards)

Boy Scout Summer Camp                   $330            =  132 Cards per youth to sell

National High Adventure Bases           $895            =  358 Cards per youth to sell

*Note—Program costs and sales per youth are not necessarily actual numbers; they are close approximations.

If your scout would like camp cards, please email silertroop46@gmail.com with the number of cards your scout would like to try and sell.
