Regular Troop Meeting Monday, October 11th, 7pm

Posted by admin on Oct 10 2021 - 9:51pm

Our October 11th Troop meeting will focus on preparing for our Dinosaur Valley State Park this coming weekend.  This campout has evolved into a short backpacking trip as our assigned campsites are located in the Southern primitive camping area.  The distance to carry our gear is about 1/2 mile.  If you have been to Winding Stairs, this hike is less than half of that distance.  Plus it should be an easy, fairly flat walk.

For the meeting, we will plan to meet at the Scout Hut since our gear is there.  The weather should work well for us and the temperature should helpful.
Mr. Fowler

Regular Troop Meeting Monday, September 27th, 7pm

Posted by admin on Sep 27 2021 - 3:13pm

We will have our regular Troop Meeting this evening at 7pm in the Church Gym.  We will be talking about our camping schedule for this next year and Scouts will be deciding on some of the places where we will go.  We will also talk about Summer Camp next summer. (Hint: Camp Daniel Boone, maybe)
 
Our Taste of ScoutWest was a great success!  We raised a little over $5,500 for the Troop General Fund.  Those funds will help defray our monthly camping trips and outings.  That's is a good, solid amount considering we lost TOSW last year.  Not quite as good as in previous years, but it will help with expenses during this coming year.  We learned several lessons so we'll be able to do much better in 2022.
GOOD JOB AND THANK YOU TO ALL THAT HELPED AND CONTRIBUTED!

We also wish to update you on our Scout Hut repairs.  The electrical rework has been completed. Our roof issues from the fallen tree in January has also been completed.  We now await our HVAC system replacement.  Our last report is that most of the components have been located except for the AC coil.  That part is in testing and is delayed.  While we could buy an AC coil, we are patient and able to wait for one to become available sometime in the near future.  Fortunately, with cooler weather coming, we should be able to begin using the Hut again soon anyway.  We will let you know when we are able to do that.
Mr. Fowler

We have a Great Taste of ScoutWest ahead!
