March 24

Post date: Mar 26, 2009 4:13:31 PM

Our newest Eagle Scout is Charles Gowan.

We made some changes in the schedule. The camping this weekend will be moved to the weekend of 4/17-4/19 due to the weather, the ages of most of the scouts, and the fact we haven't been camping in a while. The place should be the same, but Stephen is getting confirmation on this.

This Saturday we will do to the Marine Museum at Quantico. Meet at the church at 8 AM, we will leave by 8:30. Either bring a lunch or bring money to buy a lunch. Also bring money for the gift shop if you want. We should be back by about 4 PM.

4/4 - Brady Saunders trip. Be at the church by 8 AM leaving shortly after. We will be back on Sunday around 5 or 6 PM. This is for new scouts as well as older scouts. Shawn said it was OK for the older boys to bring bikes to ride the trails.

White water trip information will be given out next meeting.

Stew Money: There is still about $1000 outstanding. Please bring your stew money to the next meeting.

Elections are on for the end of March for our new SPL and PL's. Other positions will be appointed.

Summer Camp is closer than you think - Make sure your med form is up to date. There is a new Med form that will be required soon, so you might want to get it done. It is available at: http://www.scouting.org/filestore/pdf/34605_Letter.pdf

Scoutmaster minute - the most important word in the Scout Law - "is".
