Name: Update for November 17

Congratulations to those who slept out at our winter campout this past weekend.  Scouts and adults who were working towards earning the below freezing award were given 37 points (-5 degrees) for Friday night and 39 points for Saturday night (-7 degrees) for a total of 76 points for both nights!

This Tuesday, November 17, is a regular meeting and dress is Class A.  Scouts should return the Troop gear from this past campout, clean and dry.  We will be unloading the trailer and working on the Troop tents, finding what is broken/missing so they can be ready for the next campout.  If time is available we will work on other Troop equipment. 

POPCORN:  Popcorn that had to be ordered will be available for pickup.  If you need to pick up popcorn please stop by the meeting.  If you have money to turn in please do so as well.

WIGGY BAGS:  Wiggy bags have arrived.  Please come to Tuesday’s meeting to pick up your bag(s).

COURT OF HONOR:  We have a Troop Court of Honor scheduled for December 8.  Scouts need to turn in completed merit badge cards ASAP if you wish to receive the badge at this Court of Honor.

Name: Update for November 3

This Tuesday, November 3, is not a regular Scout meeting.  We will meet at 7PM at Chugiak High School for swim night.  Cost is $3 for youth and $5 for adults that also wish to swim.  Scouts may have the opportunity to have some swim rank requirements signed off so bring your Scout books.

Outdoor Activities:  We will also have final signups for the Trebuchet campout (November 13-15) at swim night.  The cost is $25 (cash only please, no checks) and it will be held at Camp Carlquist.  We will launch the trebuchet on Saturday, have a Dutch oven cookoff that night, and work on the Astronomy merit badge (with telescope viewing-weather permitting).
