Troop Announcements November 2020

  • T69 Families!

  • Yesterday 9 Scouts and 5 Adults tackled organizing the Troop Trailer and sorting through all the miscellaneous supplies stored in the old trailer.  Dr. Galer even found his hiking sticks - lol, as well as a few other treasures :-) Great job!  In the afternoon, 6 scouts worked on building a monkey bridge with their lashing skills.  Pictures will come soon!

  • Troop Meetings:

  • The results of our survey were pretty clear.  Absolutely nobody wanted to have meetings on Saturdays!  Therefore, we will be moving to a Monday night hybrid meeting schedule.  Each week we will have a Patrol (or combination of scouts) meet IN PERSON from 7pm - 7:45.  At 8:00 we will begin Zoom meetings with the other scouts.  This way each scout will have the opportunity for in person meetings.

  • Troop Outings:

  • Nov. 21-22 - outing - Local farmland.  We will be leaving Saturday morning and pick up is Sunday before lunch.   All scouts going on the outing will meet at Dr. Galer's at 8 am to help with loading and we will then drive individually (caravan) to the outing location.  Each scout will need to be picked up at the farm on Sunday at 11:00 am.  This is a unique opportunity that includes Conservation Service Hours!  We will be pulling honey suckle :-)  Please bring work gloves, loppers or garden snips. The farm has a giant pile of wood that they would like us to burn as much as possible - are we up to the challenge?  Additionally, there are a lot of areas to explore and work on scout skills. 

  • Dec. - the December day outing has been cancelled due to Covid-19.  We would like each Patrol to schedule a Patrol outing instead.  You must get approval by Nov. 30th. Remember, if you need to do an Rank Advancement at an outing you only have the November outing and a Patrol outing to accomplish this.

  • Court of Honor:

  • Date moved to Sunday Dec. 13 4pm. This will also be our Christmas party. It will be held at Belzer.  More information to come soon.
