A great time was had by all on the hike (OK a little rain, but the troop stayed dry for the moist part). We saw some wildlife and thanks to Mr. Ward for his knowledge of plants!

PLC - This Friday 7:30 at the Carson Building.

There will be a service opportunity with the Christmas Mother on December 16th. Watch for more information.

We had a demonstration of Winter Camping at Tuesday's meeting. This should help us on our winter campout in January at Brady Saunders.

Which leads us to Winter Camp right around the corner. We need commitments! Winter camp promises many unique merit badge opportunities. (January 15-18.) More info to come.

By the way - PLC - This Friday 7:30 at the Carson Building.

We are planning to try 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 next week’s meeting.

Also at the next meeting is our Annual Christmas Party! Road Runners are to bring something salty and the Greyt Wolves are to bring in something sweet. The leadership patrol is to bring drinks.

O yeah… did I forget to mention there is a PLC - This Friday 7:30 at the Carson Building.

Advice from the Scoutmaster: Fly like the geese - take care of each other.
