May 8, 2017 @ 6:00 pm – 7:00 pm
Mt. Pleasant Waterfront Park
This training will be conducted by ASM Ross Heaton prior to the regular Troop meeting being held at Waterfront Park that evening.
We have arranged to meet on the Cooper River side of the River Watch Cafe & Gift Shop, right beside the Mt. Pleasant Police Substation where we have access to an electrical outlet. Ask your parents to drop you off right in front of the Pier Walk entrance close to the Cooper River. You will see the Cafe and Gift Shop and go to the far side of the building where we will review requirement 8, and complete requirement 9 and 10.
Bring your Work Book Sheets for notes.
For those of you who did not have a copy, Asst Scoutmaster Dunn has put a copy of the Truck Transportation Merit Badge book on-line at the following link: https://drive.google.com/file/d/0B62fsXjPzySBOGdYT1Q2dWtodXM/view?usp=sharing Please read Requirement 8, 9 and 10.
Asst Scoutmaster, Chad Neal, is bringing one of his company’s diesel Pick Up trucks and 25 ft. trailer with attached mini skid steer with attachments. Mr. Neal will show you the diesel engine, discuss safety items required and how to safely secure a load.
When we have finished the requirements discussion we will meet Mr. Neal under the Ravenel Bridge in the open field.
Finally, now that we know how many scouts are participating, I will make arrangements to visit a trucking terminal to complete Requirement 4.
Please contact me if you have questions or concerns.
Ross Heaton, Asst Scoutmaster
