December 1

Post date: Dec 6, 2009 8:41:25 PM

We will be going on the Capital Trail Hike on December 5th. This is a great trip and an easy flat hike. Bring lunch, raingear, water, and clothing appropriate for the weather. Guests are welcome. There is lots to see so bring a notebook for wildlife and plant identification. You might want to bring binoculars and/or a camera as well. We will depart from the church at 8:00 am and be back before dinnertime. A permission slip will be included in next week’s update. (No cost for this trip, but we will need some drivers.)

Pizza party for the Roadrunner patrol for selling more popcorn that the Greyt Wolves 7 PM Dec. 8.

PLC - moved to Dec. 11.

Winter camp is around the corner and summer camp is coming up fast. We’ll need commitments! Winter camp promises many unique merit badge opportunities. (January 15-18.) More info to come.

We’re planning on trying for a SeaBase trip in 2011 – while that seems way off in the future, we need to plan now! Members of the PLC are putting together information for a December meeting where we will discuss our options. We need to know we have the commitment of enough scouts to make this trip a reality. Please be thinking about going!

Advice from the Scoutmaster: Take a walk in the woods - and meet God.

12/5 – Capital Trail Hike

Please remember that Troop meetings start promptly at 7:30. Leaders are there from about 7:15 and Scouts can gather and take advantage of this time to talk to the leaders. If you are leaving the meeting early, please make sure the scoutmaster or an assistant scoutmaster know you are leaving so we won’t go looking for you.
