Thanks to all those who picked up their popcorn Tuesday night. At this point all the popcorn is accounted for (either picked up or arrangements are in the works). All popcorn money must be turned in no later than Tuesday December 2nd. Please make sure you have your money in that night or before!

There will be a regular meeting next Tuesday.

Mr. Piacentini plans to hold the Citizenship in the Community Merit Badge class on Saturday, November 29th from 9:00am to 4:00pm in the Rowe Room at New Hanover Presbyterian Church. Scouts should bring a bag lunch. Please let him know directly or through the Scoutmaster who will be attending. He is also looking for one adult volunteer leader to help out.

Shooting sports weekend 12/6 - 1 night. Leave on Saturday morning, return on

Sunday. More details to come.

District basketball tournament - boy coached - let the Scoutmaster know

if you are interested. The dates are Friday 12/26 - 12/28.

We are working on an modified Old Dominion Hike in Richmond. There are a few dates over Christmas Break that are in discussion, please watch the calendar for details.

The Committee met and has approved the following reimbursement schedule for those who help provide transportation on camping trips.


Drivers to events will have the $10 fee waived if they carry at least one scout other than their son on a trip


A driver that tows the trailer will be offered a fuel allocation based on the following:

• Round trips of less than 100 miles: $25

• Round trips of 100 to 200 miles: $50

• For trips longer than 200 miles, the Scout Master, Treasurer, and Tour Leader will make a recommendation to the troop committee

for the trailer allocation amount.

For those drivers who wish to take advantage of this fee reduction or reimbursement, a standard troop reimbursement form is needed.

Advice from the Scoutmaster: Those who take eat well. Those who give sleep well.
