Kickoff Meeting for 2019-2020 Scouting Year
Tuesday 9/3    7:30pm - 9:00pm    CUCC Basement
Wear your full Class A uniform.  Let's start this year looking sharp!
This will be an important information sharing time for everyone planning to be involved in Troop 407 during this coming year.

All Scouts must bring: 
  • At least one parent, preferably both.
  • $110 annual dues: make checks to "Troop 407, BSA" or pay through the Online Store.
  • Updated Scout Profile information forms which were sent to you in the mail. Please provide us with all of the requested information. Many forms that we must file with the Council throughout the year require this information and it is much easier to collect it all now. Legible entries in a brightly colored pen will greatly ease data entry.
  • If you did not attend summer camp with us, or used last year's medical form to do so, a new complete Annual Health and Medical Record.
Those scouts (First Class and above) interested in running for SPL or ASPL, come prepared to speak about your qualifications and ideas.
Leadership Training Seminar
Friday 9/6    5:30pm - 9:30pm    CUCC Basement
This will be a fun and fast-paced event appropriate for scouts holding the rank of First Class or above. Attendance is mandatory for our newly elected SPL and ASPL and is a requirement to be eligible to run for Patrol Leader next Tuesday. It is also highly recommended for any of our older scouts prepared to help with the leadership of our troop.
Bike Ride and Day at the Beach
Sat 9/7 10am - 10pm    Huntington Beach
Join all of your troop friends for a day and evening at the beach. Some will drive, some will ride bikes, all will have fun! Those who are interested will start at The Pond in Anaheim and ride the Santa Ana River Trail to Huntington Beach. We will gather at Huntington Beach for play, a burger and dog BBQ, and s'mores. Bring the whole family. We need committment from some parents to go early and claim a fire pit and some to make the food happen. (JKM)
