We had a great review of the Camporee – Scouts are now warm and Dry. Then we played Human Checkers – Great team building!

If you have any remaining Stew money or receipts, please make sure they get to Mr. Ames by next week!

The District Award Dinner is November 7th and is open to all scouts and families. Ben Ward is leading the Flag Ceremony, and is looking for full Class A scouts to help out.

If any scouts are interested in arranging a Sunday Afternoon Mountain Bike Ride through the trails of Brady Saunders, please contact Mrs. Coffey.

Equipment Amnesty Program! We are missing several equipment items, coolers, tents etc. Please check your sheds and garages for troop equipment. For the next two meetings there is a Troop Equipment Amnesty program. No questions asked – just bring it back!

Keep selling Popcorn!!!

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.
