4th Annual Turkey Burner Classic 50-Miler

November 13, 2012 By: Kevin Category: Announcement, Events, Merit Badge

When: 7 a.m., Friday, Nov. 23, 2012 (the day after Thanksgiving)
Where: The Shoreline Top Foods Store, 1201 N. 175th Street, Shoreline, WA 98133

We meet at 7 a.m. for free refreshments provided by Top Foods and then leave by 7:30 a.m. to ride north on the Interurban Trail to Everett and back — a distance of 50 miles, which can fulfill the Cycling Merit Badge requirement.

We take a fairly leisurely pace and make a couple of stops for hot chocolate and have lunch at the downtown Everett McDonalds (bring a few extra $$).

Please make sure your bike is in good working order and have your 10 essentials. Please… no cotton! We do not offer breakdown service or repair. This event is simply an opportunity to burn some post-Thanksgiving calories and ride with fellow scouts and scouters. We always have a great time.

In case of snow or substantial ice we will reschedule. Please check the Troop 853 website in the event of extremely severe weather. We do ride in the rain (and we love it).

Doodle 4 Google

March 10, 2012 By: Kevin Category: Announcement, General

Google is having a contest for kids K-12 to design their next logo. The prizes are pretty enticing so if you know of any aspiring artists, please share. The deadline for submissions is March 23.  Here a link to a PDF flyer on this activity and there’s more info below:


Hi, My name is Ashlee Piper and I’m a Field Marketing Representative for Google. I’m contacting you today to discuss one of the many ways your program can partner with Google to create more opportunities for your children.

Right now, Google is hosting Doodle 4 Google, which is an art competition that challenges students to redesign our Google logo, with a doodle based on the theme: “If I could travel in time, I’d visit…”

The national winner takes home a $30,000 college scholarship and awards his school with a $50,000 technology grant. In addition, the winning “Doodle” will also be displayed on Google’s homepage, Crayola’s iconic 64 box, and even more exciting our state winner will have his or art featured at Washington State’s Local Exhibit, The Pacific Science Center.

Please take some time to review the attached 1-Sheeter and let me know how we can best communicate this opportunity to your kids.

In addition, we also have Submission kits that we can provide to help some of your schools hold their own Doodle activity. Please let me know if you are interested. so that I may deliver a kit ASAP. The kit includes Entry Forms, Crayola Crayons, Markers, and Map Pencils. We also have tons of printed submission forms to give you as well.

Below are a couple links to help you learn more about Doodle 4 Google and to meet Matteo Lopez, the 2011 Doodle 4 Google National Winner.
