I will be offering the Canoeing merit badge soon. To earn this badge requires attendance at the following events listed below. This merit badge is excellent preparation for our two upcoming canoe trips in May and June.
** 5 Classroom sessions. These will be held from 6:30 – 7:00 PM at St. James’s Church just prior to the regular Scout meeting. Because of the short time frame it is very important to be on time. Also the class is largely Scout- taught: Each Scout will be given a topic & expected to prepare a 10 minute talk to be presented to the other Scouts to learn. Failure to prepare your topic means that everyone misses that requirement.
On Tuesday, Feb 6, we will work in patrols and finalize gear for the 9-11Feb ski trip.
This will be my first meeting as your president and I’d like you all to come in uniform with your scout books. I have asked Patrol leaders Harrison and Kavita to lead us in saying the pledge of allegiance and the scout oath. I will lead us in saying the scout law.
All parents and adult volunteers are invited to the monthly committee meeting tomorrow 30 Jan at 7pm during the youth business meeting. Please email me any agenda items you would like to include in addition to the ones listed at the end of the email.
This week we will have a pack check, so everyone who is going, bring your bags. We will be distributing AMC gear too, so be ready. Ms. Holmes also wants to finalize plans for the wilderness first aid trip, so people going there need to get ready too.
Tomorrow we will be splitting the group into two patrols, then sam will lead those going on the trip in preparing for a pack check and meals. If we have time wr will let the patrols come up with a name, call, and flag.
