I hope everyone had a great Thanksgiving! We are back at the Hut tomorrow night for a regularly scheduled meeting.  

Re-charter payments are DUE! $189 is the number to remember ($100 for activity fees and $89 for scouting fees). All scouts who continue to stay involved in scouting and want rank advancement, merit badges and go to Sea Base through Troop 369 need to pay re-charter fees. 

  • All adults who want to continue to have a presence in the Troop either as a leader or committee member need to pay their re-charter fee of $62. 
  • We intend to clean up the rolls this year and try to avoid paying fees of those not active. 
  • Please reach out to Andrew Bentley (bakobud@gmail.com) and / or Sara Long (pink.penguin.princess@gmail.com) if you have questions about re-charter. 
  • If you have not paid your re-charter fees by December 15, 2022, you will be dropped from the rolls.  

 Lastly, as a reminder, we will be offering the Citizenship in Society, eagle required, merit badge again in January 2023. If you miss this opportunity, please reach out to East Texas Area Council to find a time this merit badge is offered. This new and unique merit badge must be completed in a group setting (cannot do it on your own).

We had a good camp out at Martin Creek State Park. We caught good weather, but not so many fish. We will spend the month getting ready for our next camp out. We will combine with the Cub scouts of Pack 369 for a pre-Halloween campout. We will do conservation work and provide a fun atmosphere for the Cub scouts, who will be trick or treating with us. We will finish with a Halloween themed campfire.
