Hello Scouts,

Great work everyone who was at the meeting tonight creating some really great patrol flags, cheers, and mottos. I’m excited to start incorporating them into meetings.

Next week, Scout Jeopardy. Be there ready to show what you know.

On to the update:

1) December 8 – 10 – Ski Weekend at Copper Mountain – There is still space for anyone who wants to join last minute even if you just want to meet them for the day. Please call or text Mr. Jackson to let him know you’re coming if you haven’t already.

2) December 21 – Troop Holiday Party, Gift Exchange, and Cookie Contest at the regular meeting. Scouts should bring a wrapped gift worth less than $20 to exchange. We will also have a cookie contest so bring your best holiday cookie or treat to share.

3) Northern Tier – We have open spaces in our Northern Tier crews for trips starting on July 10 or July 13, 2024. This is a BSA high adventure base in Northern Minnesota where you will canoe through the Boundry Waters. It is a great chance to be in nature, catch a lot of fish, and bond with your fellow scouts. Scouts must be 14 and First Class to attend. Please let me know if you are interested or would like more information.

4) Philmont 2025 registration is now open. Philmont offers backpacking trips through the mountains of northern New Mexico. In my opinion, this is the pinnacle of scouting, and something that every scout should do as part of their journey. I would like to get spaces reserved soon, so please let me know ASAP if you are interested — no commitment required at this point, just determining how many crews we think we’ll have.

Hope to see everyone next week.

Mr. Wilcox
