New Skipper Needed for Astoria’s SSS 635, Flying Cloud

Note from Hal re: new skipper needed for Sea Scouts:


I am hunting for a new skipper for SSS 635, Flying Cloud.  Suzanne currently needs 24/7 care which impacts routine meetings and practically eliminates program activities that are more than a couple of hours long (sailing, dirt camping, complicated fundraisers, etc.).  

I do not plan on leaving the group.  I want someone else to be the skipper so I can step down to mate.

If no one can be convinced to be skipper, the ship at least needs adults to keep track of advancement, recruitment, fund raising as well as being the second adult on a boat. I would appreciate an adult or two to help me think about these issues.

New adult mates don’t need to know about boats. The group and I will train them along with the scouts.  We encourage participating adults to satisfy the requirements for each Sea Scout rank.

Do You Drink Enough Water?

rethink your drink

How much water do you drink. Did you know most people don’t drink enough fluids are start each day already dehydrated?

Heading into camping season take a little time to think about whether or not you are getting enough fluids. Don’t wait until you get to camp to start drinking more fluids…if you arrive dehydrated to begin with, getting hydrated is an uphill battle.

Living on the coast in a damper climate is quite different than some of our council resident camps. Even if you are attending a resident camp on the coast, you most likely will be more active while at camp…which will increase your water needs.

The Sea Scouts Boat Sales are now open

To fund the Sea Scout operations the Sea Scouts take in donated boats and sell them at well below blue book.

Ft. Clatsop District Summer Parades

With summer fast approaching, it’s time to start thinking about parades. There are several parades on our district in which scouts can participate. Scout units wishing to participate should contact the parade organizers to register. (Those wishing to participate in either of Astoria’s Regatta Parades, please contact Ft. Clatsop District Program Chairman Laurie Kautz at laurie.kautz@gmail.com as we typically enter as a district).

As with any public appearance scouts should use the following guidelines…

Scout Field Uniform (formerly known as Class A uniform). Shirts should be tucked in to scout pants or neat, clean blue jeans (no camo pants or gym shorts please). Hats, neckerchiefs and tie slides as appropriate for your scout unit. Closed toe shoes and socks.

Scouts should always conduct themselves by the scout law.

Parades do count toward service hours, so make sure your scout unit logs their hours at http://www.myscouting.org
