Agenda for Tuesday, March 19

Hello everyone,

Last week, scouts not going on the trip have learned some material about wilderness survival. They will be teaching a couple of skills to those who are going on the trip so they are prepared.

7:00-7:05  |  Opening
7:05-7:20  |  Pack checks
7:20-7:40  |  Presentations by scouts
7:40-7:55  |  Food in cold weather
7:55-8:00  |  Closing

Do not forget that the weekend is the wilderness survival trip. The pack check will be re-done and will determine if you can go or not. So make sure you come prepared. Some scouts have passed the pack check and they know if they did. We are not punishing you but will rather have you be safe than sorry.

Yours in Scouting,

Jeffrey Gomez

Agenda for Tuesday, March 12

Hello everyone,

The March trip is coming very close and we will start preparing for it. As Mr. English has stated before, the most dangerous thing we do in this troop are our winter trips. The cold is a very serious and dangerous threat but can be mitigated and prevented to a very minimal threat. It can be easily protected against as long as we keep up with our Scout motto, “Be Prepared”.

7:00-7:05  |  Opening

7:05-7:55  |  Pack Check & Food List
*7:05-7:55 |  Learn new skills
7:55-8:00  |  Closing

*=scouts not going on the trip will learn about wilderness survival skills, especially for the winter

Scouts that are not going on this trip will also be needed for next week. The skills they learn will be taught to the whole troop in some presentations and demonstrations.

Agenda for Tuesday, March 5

Hello everyone,

7:00-7:05  |  Opening
7:05-7:55  |  Advancements
7:55-8:00  |  Closing

For advancements, I would like to request for as many leaders to help with scouts. There are so many scouts and so many circumstances to fulfill. Some scouts could work with others for certain ranks but others may have to focus on 1 difficult requirement for the whole meeting. The more the merrier and I ask for each leaders’ assistance.

The March trip is coming very soon and it will focus on wilderness survival. Some great plans to prepare scouts for the trip are already scheduled but we need to make sure that scouts are committed to going and be attending the next 3 weeks meetings.
