Scoutmaster minutes - 3-6-2018

Tonight our troop welcomed the Webelos Arrow of Light Scouts from Pack 392 for an adventure outside.  C.V. led a discussion about how to Geocache safely and respect the environment.  Then they accompanied the Webelos outside and helped them with finding two Geocaches that were hidden prior to the meeting.

Along with finding the First Class Cache, they also placed a Geocaching Trackable in it.  Trackables are physical items in the cache that fellow Geocachers move to other caches and you can track their progress online.  You can follow it's journey at

After the meeting, we had a quick discussion about the campout this weekend.  We will be meeting at the church in our Class A uniforms on Friday night at 5:30 to leave. Also, please have your scouts leave their phones at home.  It looks like the weather will cooperate for us this weekend with highs in the low 40's and the rain holding off until Sunday afternoon.  However, I still recommend bringing rain gear and boots along with a pair of shoes. So far the scouts have planned a hike and a flag retirement ceremony for Saturday.  Please remember to bring a few board or card games.

The menu that the scouts decided on is below:

 - Cracker Barrel: Slim jims and apples

 - Breakfast: Pancakes, sausages, apples, bananas, OJ, and milk
 - Lunch: Cheeseburger pie, with Regular and BBQ chips
 - Dinner: Chicken and dumplings with apples
 - Cracker Barrel: Peanut butter or chocolate chip cookies

 - Breakfast:  Danishes

Also, I have posted some pictures from the Mad River Mountain Tubing event we went on last Sunday online at: What a difference a week makes, the weather was perfect for tubing and they had made some fresh snow for the weekend, which led to slick tracks.  A big thank you to all the adults who chauffeured the scouts and to Mr. Hobbs for buying lunch for the troop.
