January 25 Weekend- Snow Skiing
As Mr Jahns indicated, this years ski trip will be a day trip.  Please respond to his email if you plan to go!
Dues are Due
The Troop has paid the dues this year.  If you have not paid your dues yet please do so!  Only 60% have paid so far.  As a reminder:  the dues are $120 per paid youth and $42 – paid adult.  Please make checks out to Troop 131 and give to our Treasurer, Mr. Van Goethem, at the troop meetings.  Note that scholarships are available.  Please email me at if you wish to discuss a scholarship.
Snow Camping – Presidents Day Weekend February 15-17
We’ll try it again this year, hopefully, there is snow. Build Quinzhee’s and frolic in the snow! The plan is to go to Canaan Valley State Park in WVA.  No Snow?  Never fear, we have a back up plan to do cold weather camping somewhere closer.
Troop Calendar
See attached calendar for 2020 outings.  The activities were chosen by the SPL, the PLC, and the rest of the Scouts.  We may swap a couple of the activities, but the dates will remain the same.   I will update them to troop google calendar soon.
Notes from the Senior Patrol Leader:
– DRESS APPROPRIATELY – In the next few weeks, we will be training on cold weather camping, dutch oven cooking, and other skills, and some if not all of this will be done OUTSIDE.  So coats, hats, gloves, and headlamps are all required.  
– PATROL LEADERS – It is your responsibility to touch base with your Patrols and be sure that they are paying attention to the Skills Training and working on their Advancement
– CELL PHONE USAGE – Not in the troop meetings, except with very few exceptions when they are being used for advancement or merit badges.
Be Prepared!
