Camping News and Meeting Update

Due to the camp out this weekend, there will NOT be a meeting on 01/30.  Our next meeting will be 02/06.  At that meeting we will be working on developing patrols and having ELECTIONS.  Please have the scouts wear their BSA Class A shirt to meetings. I have received a lot of feedback on this issue.  This is something that everyone wants the boys to get in the habit of doing.  It’s a matter of pride and I hope our boys are proud to be in a great troop and a great program.

For those scouts coming on the camp out this weekend, here are some last minute news:

  • Meet Friday @ 6:30 p.m.at the Moose Club – We need to load up the gear into our vehicles and caravan out to Camp Butler.
  • In addition to the rest of the winter stuff, bring:
    • Mess Kit – Need bowl, spoon, cup (we will not be providing paper products)
    • Water Bottle
    • Sled – we will be sled riding in the afternoon
    • Large Flashlight
  •  On Sunday, we will need help bringing the gear back to the Moose Club.  We will also need people to take a tent home to dry out.

I’m really excited about this weekend.  Weather looks like it will be in the high 20’s, low 30’s.  This is a bonus from the single digits of last weekend.  We’re going to be working on our cooking, camping, fire building, lashings.  Looking to bring some scouts closer to advancement.
