Pictures Posted

September 03, 2011 By: Kevin Category: Announcement

All the rest of the pictures from the scouting activities in 2011 have now been posted.  Looks like the boys have been having a great time on their trips.  I’d love to report on their reactions and thoughts about their travels, but they don’t appear to be willing to writing anything out.  Too much like school or something, I suppose…


Court of Honor & BBQ

June 22, 2011 By: Kevin Category: Announcement, Court of Honor

We had a great BBQ and Court of Honor this past Monday evening.  Great weather at Maple Leaf park.  Plenty of food…even for a bunch ravenous teenage and pre-teen boys!  There were quite a few merit badges handed out as well as advancement announcements.  New leadership was also announced this evening.  Kudo’s to the boys for their work and leadership!  Many thanks to Scoutmaster Bob and his team!

Volunteer opportunity with Seattle DPR and Carkeek Park

August 26, 2010 By: troop151 Category: Announcement, Eagle Scout, Service Project

I am Brian Gay, Public Programming Naturalist with Seattle Department of Parks and Recreation (based at Carkeek Park, address below). I have worked with Scouts in many capacities here at Carkeek to fulfill many service opportunities from Eagle Scout projects to flag ceremonies and more. I would like to offer scouts in your Troop the opportunity to participate with and support our unique orchard and its annual Festival of Fruit on 9/18. We have a variety of positions that a responsible Scout (or 4) could help us with.

Please contact me if you have time that morning to help us (about 3 – 4 hours would be great).

Carkeek Park is currently recruiting for 2010 volunteer Beach Docents, Forest Volunteers, Trails Volunteers, Orchard Volunteers, Salmon Support Volunteers, Backyard Habitat Caretakers, and More!

March 29th Shooting at Sam Gun CLub

March 11, 2010 By: bbrotherson Category: Announcement, Events, Schedule

On March 29th instead of swimming we will be shooting 22 rifles at Sams Gun Club. We will meet at St. Catherine’s at 6:00 and be back around 8:30. Scouts are to wear their Scout Shirts and follow all rules. I need about 6 to 7 dad to attend for safety reasons. Dads may not get time on the range, in this case Scouts go first.  Any questions call Bob 206-522-0365.

New pictures and changes to Facebook

October 18, 2009 By: troop151 Category: Announcement

Pictures for the August summer trip down to California have now been posted to the web, so take a look.  Also, I discovered that Facebook pages can receive updates from blogs but Facebook groups cannot…guess which one we currently have?  So, I created a Facebook Page for Troop 151.  Please take a look, become a fan, and invite your family and friends to become fans, too!


Pennsylvania Troop send their Thanks

July 28, 2009 By: bbrotherson Category: Announcement, Camping, Events, Uncategorized

Troop 320 from Pennsylvania wanted me to pass along their thanks to all the Scouts and Parents from troop 151. They had a great time.  They enjoyed the tour of Seattle on Saturday. They loved Camp Parsons and agreed it was the best Scout Camp they had attended. Their leadership group met with Brad Allen of the Chief Seattle Council and praised Troop 151 and their Scoutmaster (that would be me) for helping them with their trip palns and for showing them a great time. Brad Allen came to our campsite and thanked me and our Troop for hosting and showing Troop 320 a great week. Thanks to everyone for their help with this task.

Troop Wins Awards at Camp Parsons

July 28, 2009 By: bbrotherson Category: Announcement

Once again Troop 151 won big at Camp Parsons. This year our Patrols took 2nd and 3rd in the Best Patrol Contest, out of 62 Patrols. Our canoe team finished 2nd using 4 Scouts and 3 paddles (losing 1 paddle during the race).  Conor Myhre won the adult pentathlon.  Tim Lynch won the grand prize of Waiter of the Week in the dinning hall. The Troop took home the 2nd Place Best Troop Award.  A great job for a Troop of 10 Scouts.

In addition the Scouts earned 27 Merit Badges, Gabe complete his 1st Class requirements, and Raymond has almost finished his 2nd Class and 1st Class requirements.

James and Logan S. did a great job leading our Troop and everyone had fun.

A big Thank Youto our returning Eagel Scouts for their help during the week. Conor Myhre stayed all week and was a big help with eveything. Will Ringness worked with our canoe team. Trip Maguire helped with getting everything ready for Friday, and hauling gear home on Saturday.
