For the first time, I have pictures frome the campout.

I've got to say that this was a great camp.  We didn't participate in the district klondike, but we had a great time, and we got some great training in...and had a great time.  We had some pretty realistic first aid training, a lot of mountain climbing, the first time I saw Troop 65 build fires without Aaron's propeelants!  and a great meal prepared by two patrols who were actually doing some cooking and food prep--not just warming preprepped dinners!  And we had some scouts do scoutmaster conferences and are ready for their boards of review!  A productive, and fun camp it was.

Here are some of the highlights.

From Mr Tang:

Good Evening Scout Leaders,

 Please allow me to introduce myself.  My name is Don Tang and I am a member of Sunset Hills Presbyterian Church and also the liaison between the church and the Scouts.  Lynda Hoffman has retired and I have assumed this role.  Scouting is very important to me as well as to the church.  To the church, scouting is part of our mission work to the community.  For me, I personally have three children, one in the Boy Scouts, one in the Cub Scouts, and one in the Girl Scouts.  

Citizenship and Sled Building!

  • This week we have a special guest!  Terrence McVerry will join us to talk about his experience working in all 3 branches of government as well as being a captain in the military.
  • This meeting will satisfy requirements for First Class #9a.  Don't miss it.  EVERYONE, come with questions about the running of government or the relationships among the branches!
  • We will also be putting together the sled in preparation for our Klondike Derby (sign up now on the website).  That means....grab your book or do a search on the internet...and practice tieing square lashings.  There are a lot on the sled, and kudos will go to who can tie them the best and the fastest!!!

joke for the day...
