February 22, 2010 – Monday.  Mulch Sale Fundraiser sale window begins.  Here is your opportunity to pay your own way in Sea Scouting.  Sale profits are split 50/50 with the Ship and the selling Sea Scout.  It is easy to earn $10 to $20 per hour taking mulch orders from your neighbors, friends, family, and parental work associates.  In years past, Sea Scouts have earned hundreds of dollars for the ship and for themselves selling and delivering mulch.


February 23, 2010 – Tuesday. Charter Night Dinner, Springettsbury Fire Hall, 3013 East Market Street, York, PA.  This is an annual evening of food, fun, and fellowship we share with our companion unit, Troop 25.  We put on a segment of the evening program, so all Sea Scouts whether part of Troop 25 or not, are urged to attend in Sea Scout uniform.  There is no charge for the meal, but it would be nice to bring a dessert to share.

April 16-18, 2010 – Friday to Sunday.  Quarterdeck Training Weekend with Ship 361, Broad Creek Memorial Scout Reservation.  For all hands, not the just quarterdeck members.  Completes an Ordinary advancement requirement.  Date, Location, and Cost awaiting confirmation.

April 17, 2010 – Saturday.  Mulch Sale Delivery Day.  This is an “all hands” evolution, whether you’ve personally sold mulch or not, since the ship as a whole benefits from each bag delivered.  Plan on a full day of hard work with pizza at the end.  This is the one MAJOR fund raiser the ship does, so we need the full support of everyone!


May 3, 2010 – Monday.  Ship 25’s Deadline for Nygard Regatta Registrations.


May 15, 2010 – Saturday.  Gala Birthday Celebration – 10th Anniversary of the Founding of Sea Scout Ship 25.  Details TBA.


May 28-31, 2010 – Friday to Monday.  Henry I. Nygard Regatta, Camp Brown, Scotland, MD.  Cost:  $63 plus $10 gas (400 miles round trip).  If you only attend one event this year, Regatta is the one to go to.  It’s the culminating test of the prior twelve months of ship activity, and a lot of competitive fun as well.  Details and Boarding Manual at http://www.seascout.net/chesapeake/special_events/regatta.htm.  Reservation deadline is May 3, 2010.


June 11 – July 3, 2010.  Sea Scout Ship 25 Long Cruise – Bermuda Ocean Race 2010.  Details at http://www.bermudaoceanrace.com/.  Spaces are currently filled, and wait list has one person so far.


June 26-27, 2010, Saturday OR Sunday.  Parking Lot Fundraiser at Garrod Hydraulics.  We have a new and almost painless fundraising opportunity this year in addition to our spring Mulch Sale and our fall Shiloh Nurseries parking lot detail.  On Saturday, June 26, from 8 p.m. to 10 p.m. (rain date Sunday, June 27) we can run the parking lot at Garrod Hydraulics for cars coming to see the local Strinestown Fire Company fireworks display.  We get to keep $2 out of every $3 parking fee we collect, so this is a potential gold mine.  Unfortunately, some of us will be on the Bermuda cruise at the time, so we’ll need people who are NOT on the Bermuda Cruise to run this for the ship.


July 17 – August 1, 2010.  Sea Scout Ship 25 Long Cruise #2 – Hudson River Cruise.  This is the first year Ship 25 has offered a second long cruise in the same year.  We expect to sail from Maryland up the Chesapeake Bay, down the Delaware Bay, stop again at Lewes DE to see the sights including Rehoboth Beach, and then proceed out into the Atlantic Ocean and up into New York harbor.  After seeing the Statue of Liberty, Ellis Island, the Brooklyn Bridge, the South Street Seaport, and the Intrepid Sea Air Space Museum (the aircraft carrier USS INTREPID), we plan a leisurely cruise up the beautiful Hudson River Valley to Saugerties, NY where Skipper has relatives.  If we are lucky, they may let us use their car to go see Woodstock, NY and Max Yasgur’s farm, site of the 1969 Woodstock Concert. Cost: TBA, probably less than $300 not including admission fees at places of interest.  A $100 deposit payable to Ship 25 BSA will hold your place.  Three of eight spaces are already filled.


August 5-7, 2010, Thursday to Saturday.  Venturing Crew 277 Herrington Harbor Cruise.   Crew 277 has asked Ship 25 to host them on a short three-day Chesapeake Bay cruise to Annapolis and Herrington Harbor.  Seth Shoemaker will be the point of contact for this event.  Who knows?  We might recruit some new members this way.


August, 2010 – Date TBA.  Snug Harbor.  This year’s plans aren’t firm yet, but traditionally the Chesapeake Flotilla hosts a laid-back informal snug harbor get-together where ships from the flotilla raft-up in their respective vessels for a weekend of fantail BBQ, swimming, water skiing, and all-round good times.


October 1-3, Friday to Sunday.  Wizard Safari, Wizard Ranch, Hellam Township, PA.  This is a not-to-be missed event occurring every four years which is as close to a national Scout jamboree as you can come on a council level.  Picture over 3,000 Cubs, Scouts, Venturers, and Sea Scouts setting up camp at Wizard Ranch for a super Scouting extravaganza.  Exact details are pending, but having attended every Wizard Safari for the last 50 years, Skipper Kain says: “You DEFINITELY want to be there!”
