The fourth and final planned scouting adventure opportunity for the scouts in Troop 300 will be a water “FUNDAY”. This year, it is a single day event, being offered on two different days (FRIDAY and SATURDAY) for two different groups. A scout can sign up for either day, but not both, as long as there are slots available. The plan will be to transport each group out to the big island, and then conduct the water skiing and tubing from that shore. There will be two signups, with 20 slots available for each day. There is a planned $20 fee to cover boat gas and the food for lunch to be cooked on the island. I plan to spearhead this event, line up the boats and boat drivers, and work with the scouts to plan their menu. I need to hear from the adults who have boats, and see what your availability is to pull tubers and monitor the island while the boats are pulling the boys. I also need adults willing to monitor the island activities, including the lunch cooking. If we only have enough adult support for a single day event, then only a small group of the troop will get to do this. There is one mandatory BSA requirement for a scout to participate, and that is they must pass the BSA Swim Test prior to the event. Because we are not meeting, I am authorizing the parents to conduct the test and certify that their son meets that swimming ability level. The BSA Swim Test that each scout must have passed is: Jump feet first into water over the head in depth, level off, and begin swimming. Swim 75 yards in a strong manner using one or more of the following strokes: sidestroke, breaststroke, trudgen, or crawl; then swim 25 yards using an easy resting backstroke. The 100 yards must be swum continuously and include at least one sharp turn. After completing the swim, rest by floating.
