Hello Scouts,

We had a great presentation tonight from Mr. Kelly about 3D printing and he donated one of his maps to the troop. We will have to find a place to hang it so everyone can enjoy it.

Next week, we will continue working on the Citizenship in Society and Electronics merit badges.

On to the update:

1) February 2 – 4: Klondaree. Our troop will not be attending due to lack of interest.

2) Sunday, February 4: Scout Sunday. Scouts should plan to come to the service at Hope to show our reverence and support for the church. Service will start at 10:00 am. Scouts who will be helping as ushers, greeters, readers, or doing the flag ceremony, should arrive by 9:30. Scouts should be in full uniforms. 

3) February 17 – Josep’s Eagle project.

4) February 22 – Court of Honor. This will be a pot luck with more details to follow. A merit badge make up and completion meeting will take place on February 8.

5) We are adding a March campout to replace the FUNdamentals overnight (since there are currently now new scouts in the cub scout packs to cross over). We discussed going to Cherokee Grasslands in southern Colorado. Please, let me know if you would like to help plan this campout.

6) We have space in our Northern Tier crews. This is canoeing in Northern Minnesota for a week departing on either July 10 or 13. Please, talk to Mr. Wilcox if you are interested.

7) We have added a second Philmont trek and have almost enough girls interested to have an all girls crew. Our treks will begin on July 10, 2025 and last 10 days. This is a foundational experience of scouting and highly recommended for all scouts. You must be 14 or 13 and entering 9th grade and First Class. If you are at all interested, there are still some spaces available so let Mr. Wilcox know.

Thank you.

Mr. Wilcox
