Well done by the combined Panini Monkey and Valkyrie patrol in winning week one of the scouting skills competition. Next week: fire building and team-building games. Come ready to compete.
Jackson – Tenderfoot
On to the update:
1) Wednesday, September 13 from 6:00 – 7:00 pm is the Scouting Carnival to help build interest in our Cub Scout packs. Our troop with run games and provide food. The patrols each made a plan for an activity, game, or demonstration that they will prepare for the participants. Each patrol should have representatives there. Scouts should plan to arrive at 5:30 to help set up.
2) September 21 – SPL Elections – any scouts interested in being our next SPL, should talk to Mr. Wilcox. As a reminder, candidates must have completed NYLT. Also any scouts who would like to be ASPLs, should speak to me to be considered.
3) September 29 – Oct 1 – District Camporee. Super fun district campout with a day of competitions (that we ruled last year). Highly encourage all scouts to attend.
4) September 21st – PLC after meeting. All troop leadership is required to attend and all non-leadership is highly encouraged to attend.
5) October 27 – 29 – Potential additional campout at Peaceful Valley. This was not on the original plan, but because the Camporee is in September rather than October, we have an opening. We will hold the campout if there is enough interest.
6) Remember to wear your CLASS A UNIFORM next week. Starting in September, we will be enforcing that scouts are wearing uniforms to all of the meetings. If a scout does not wear their uniform, they will not be allowed to participate in the game during the meeting.
I think that’s all for this week. Thank you all.
