In Person Meeting 7:00 to 8:30
We were going to switch to zoom in November but the weather is just too darn nice!
This week – Camp Cooking Challenge (Iron Chef Style)!!
I will bring a number of backpacking ingredients to the troop meeting and Scouts will do their best to create a delicacy!  We’ll have gloves, masks (as always), and observe strict protocol for the judges.  The winner gets to hold the Golden Chalice of Baden-Powell.
Dues are Due! 
2021 dues are due.  As a reminder, the troop pays all dues for recharter (we are undergoing right now), which means if you don’t pay your Scout’s dues, then you will have to re-apply next year (which is a HUGE pain). Mr. Van Goetham will send a separate email.
We never want the ability to pay dues to stand in the way of the Scouting experience.  If you would like a scholarship, please contact me or any Adult Leader directly and we’ll take care of it!
Wreath Sales
LAST CHANCE – forms are due tomorrow!.  Support your troop!  Win fabulous prizes (Ok there is one prize).  Win bragging rights for most wreaths sold!
Any questions, please contact Mrs. Jahns at
Prince William Forest Park – Orienteering – November 13-15
See the email from Mr. Jahns.  It’s close to home and a great place to get away for the weekend.  Last chance to sign up is tomorrow!
Small Group Camping – December 4-6
Although we don’t do a Troop outing in December, the first years are planning a limited-numbers trip to Gore VA from December 4-6. They would like a couple of older scouts to come with them if you have the weekend free!  It’s a bit farther away – 2.5 hours.  If you are interested please contact Mr.
Scouting for Food
Sorry about the cancellation – we are on our own this year.  More to come with the rescheduled date.
