Patrol Leaders, SPL, ASPL, and scribe all need to be at the church by 7:00.

The Donuts are in charge this month, so Donuts need to be at the church by 7:15 to set up.  Next camp takes us to Camp Mountaineer in West Virginia.  We went there last winter and had an EXCELLENT time.  I know that they are working on another fun time for this month too!

I hate to say, but I had to cancel our participation in the Klondike derby this weekend / this year.  I came down with something on Wednesday afternoon that kept me home from workd on Thursday and Friday.  I could not go camping with the guys because I would have certainly spread whatever I had to them.

Klondike weather

Well, we may not have snow but we'll get some wintry evening temps.  The days will be chilly but comfortable! 

New Florence, PA is showing for Friday and Saturday, highs in the 40's and lows in the 20's with no rain.  Start thinking about what you're bringing!

Alternative to Klondike????

Troop 65,

There are 4 people signed up for the klondike derby next weekend.  To participate in the derby you must have at least 5 scouts. No Webelos are able to attend. Ive confirmed there are camps with cabin availability so we could rent a cabin somwhere else and just work on first aid, fire building, etc as well as sled, have snowball fights, make igloos, etc.  Before we reserve a cabin at a new camp, I need to judge the interest in from everyone.  If you would be interested in camping in a cabin, you MUST sign up tonight and then we can talk about the details at tommorrow's meeting, assign a grubmaster, and prepare for what we end up deciding.

Klondike Signups

Hello Troop,

We currently have only 4 scouts signed up to camp with us at the Klondike.  To participate, we have to at least have a patrol of 5.  Anyone interested in going needs to sign up prior to our meeting this Thursday.  At the meeting, and depending on how much interest there is, we will get together with all those signed up to discuss options and potential alternatives should we not have enough to participate in the Klondike.  Possible options would include a day trip, camping elsewhere and learning about winter camping out in the field, or anything else you may think of.  It's your troop, what do you want to do?
