Our first Troop meeting is next Monday at the Hut. You will be surprised of the hut transformation over this past summer! However, we need your help SUNDAY to finalize the Hut makeover! Please come out to help us wax floors, clean and organize the hut from 8 AM -1 PM.  Please sign up at: http://www.signupgenius.com/go/30e0b4ea8a822aa8-final

Please commit to a 2 hour window so we can get everything done in the morning. We need help pulling everything out of the hut, cleaning and returning/organizing the hut. Also 4 people to get on their hands and knees to scrub the floor. Although I have a scrubber machine, we need some help hand scrubbing!

Thank you in advance of your help. I promise the scouts will love their new digs!

Limited to 25 attendees. Preference will be given to scouts so we ca accommodate as many as possible. For this trip we'll need min  four leaders. The rest of the leaders/parents will be determined if spaces are available. We still need sufficient number of drivers back and forth. 


Registered Scouts and Adults (not on the wait list),




Please retain your spot on the Tomales Bay Trip, October 14-15, by paying $140 per person to treasurer Karen Wang by September 15th. If payment is not received by September 15th, then your spot will be offered to people on the wait list. You may be added to the wait list by emailing me by September 15th. Scouts who email me by September 15th will be given priority. However, Scouts who don’t email me by September 15th will not be added to the wait list.




Mr. Van Oss




P.S. Some of you may not understand how troop funds are used to subsidize the trips. In this case, troop funds from the tree lot are used to reduce the total cost of the trip from $220 per person to $140 per person. Thus, you are saving about $80 on this trip because you worked the tree lot. Remember this and be Cheerful when helping customers this year.

Itinerary - PVT Guided Camping Trip


We set up a waterside camp which can be reached by a short scenic paddle, equipped with tables, camp chairs, camp stove, firewood for one fire, fresh water, and staffed by our capable and friendly kayak guides.  All that you need to bring is your tent, sleeping bag/ pad, your food for the trip, and anything else you would like to have on your adventure.  You simply arrive at 10am, load your gear on to our motorboat, and then enjoy the beautiful paddle to your campsite with your knowledgeable guides.

On all our group camps, your guide and camp host will lead guided tours from camp for anyone who wants to explore Tomales Bay after the sun goes down. On moonlit nights we’ll paddle in the glow of glorious moonlight, and on dark nights, we’ll explore the shoreline and be thrilled by the natural light show in the water that is bioluminescence. Both are wonderful and exciting experiences! In both cases, your night will end with you sleeping peacefully at the waters edge.
