We're prepping for camp this weekend!

  • Committee meeting has been postponed to October 20th so we can conduct a mock board of review for Dan Hughes.
  • Bring your gear for this weekend to load into the trailer.  Mr Neuhaus is taking the trailer to camp on Friday morning.
  • Weather is looking to be Fr: 75/54 10% chance of rain, Sa: 69/50 20% chance, and Su: 62/45 with 40% chance of rain.  Chilly nights and potentially a wet Sunday morning
  • Bring your books!  We're trying to get the first years signed off on their requirements
  • Grubmasters...how are you doing with the shopping?  Let someone know if you are struggling or have questions.
  • We'll be reviewing the patrols, menus, grubmasters, camp itenerary, and any other loose strings we need to tie up.

Camp Prep, Leader installment, and Games!!!

  • Due to lack of availability of the neccessary scout leaders, we need to cancel the ILST training for this Saturday.  Details to follow...
  • Asst Scoutmaster meeting at 7
  • We need to install all the leaders that were not at the Court of Honor
  • We need to nail down the agenda and menus for the upcoming camp.  I was thinking broccoli sandwiches.  If you don't like that, you'll need to be at the meeting to give your input!!!
  • We need to play some games.
  • This Monday, Oct 3rd at 4pm is Pumpkin unloading at SHUP.  Last year we had a big turnout!  Get service hours, help out SHUP, AND....they are providing PIZZA.  This is a fun activity!  Helping out can be fun!
  • With us having to cancel ILST, that frees everyone up to help out Logan with his Eagle project on Saturday, beginning at noon.  So you don't miss out on more pizza, and more helping our fellow man!  Sign up on the website so he knows who he can expect!
