Add the Troop Calendar to your IPhone

Get Connected

Our Troop calendar is a standard Gmail Calendar and allows most several options for connecting directly to it for tracking activities and overlapping it with their personal or work calendars. Obviously this comes in handy for us parents as much as the scouts. Here are some ways to stay connected.

Via your Iphone:
The IPhone allows you to add additional calendars to view on the phone. Basically the phone takes the Pack calendar and displays it two ways on your IPhone. Either by just viewing the Pack calendar or by viewing the Pack calendar over your personal calendar on your phone. You can change the way the calendar is viewed at anytime very easily. This DOES NOT modify your calendars on the phone in any way. To add the Troop calendar to your IPhone follow the steps below.

1. On your IPhone go into the Settings button. Then select “Add account.”
2. You will be given a list of different types of accounts you can add, such as Microsoft Exchange, Gmail, etc. At the bottom select “Other.” The next menu will have sections titled Mail, Contacts, and Calendars. In the calendar section select “Add Subscribed Calendars.” The next screen you see will have a prompt “Server” and in light grey you’ll see “”
3. In the prompt copy the following text EXACTLY as it’s shown.

For the Troop 54 Calendar use:

4. Select next and follow the prompts. Your phone will search the web and connect to the calendar. And you’re done!

Knots & Lashings

While I was on ITunes looking around I found an IPhone app I thought was pretty interesting. It’s called Knot Guide: Scout Knots. Basically it’s a reference source you can carry on your IPhone that lists lashings in addition to knots. I took the chance and downloaded it for $0.99 and was happy with it. If your so inclined you can carry a piece of string in your pocket along with this app and an Ipod Touch, or IPhone you scouts can practice while out and about. I just thought I’d pass on this information.

So I sent out an email for additional information and here is the latest update as of 5 minutes ago.

Also, in the mean time I’ve requested to be contacted by the pilots involved who are merit badge counselors so that I can get more details. I will post additional information as it is available.
