Bring your Compasses for the next few meetings, we’ll be learning and practicing our Orienteering skills.
Troop Elections –
Congratulations to Luke Waters as our new Senior Patrol Leader!
Troop Committee Meeting –
Thank you to all adults who attended. For those of you who did not, there is talk of a Parents Meeting before years end.
Be on the lookout for the Wreath sale info, headed up by Mrs. Jahns. This is our primary fundraiser for the troop and it is important that all Scouts participate to help keep the troop running!
Scouting for Food – November 2 and 9
This is one of BSA’s signature Service events – its a small amount of effort with HUGE results. Let’s turn to and do some good!
Court of Honor – November 4
We’ll have our Court of Honor on November 4 in lieu of our normal Troop Meeting. Be there to honor all the great activities and accomplishments this year!
Orienteering/Cold Weather Camping – November 16/17- Prince William Forest Park
It could be nice, it could be cold, but we will definitely be Orienteering!
SERVICE OPPORTUNITY –
Climb O Ree – November 30/31
Do you love Rock Climbing? Do you love Backpacking? Well there is an opportunity to do both on November 30 at Annapolis Rock. A 2 mile hike and then lots of climbing. Talk to me about this if you are interested!
Falcons to Moose:
The Falcons and Moose Patrols have now merged! After much deliberation on Patrol names – including the Floose, the Malcons, and the far less popular FalMooses or MoosyFalcons, the Patrol settled on keeping the Moose Patrol name. Former Falcons can pick up their new Patrol Patches with Mrs. Haymes.
| Notes from the Senior Patrol Leader:
– 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.
– BRING YOUR SCOUTBOOKS TO THE MEETINGS! Opportunities for Advancement are being wasted just because Scouts don’t remember their books.
