Hello scouts and parents,

This week we will be finishing up the Weather and Citizenship in the World merit badges, and working on rank advancement. Scouts who are doing the Weather merit badge, remember to write your five minute speeches and do your daily weather logs. The game will be gaga ball. Also, this will be the day of SPL elections.

Our next few upcoming things:

— On March 31 through April 2 we’ll have a Peaceful Valley Campout; you can sign up on the troop website.

— On April 1 there is a sleeping mat weaving service project for the homeless. It is 5:00 – 7:00 pm at St. Peters’ Lutheran Church. Its flyer is attached.

— On April 1 and 2 there’s the Rocky Mountain Train Show. Scouts in uniform receive free entry and can complete the entire Railroading merit badge at the event. More information at: https://rockymountaintrainshow.com/Default.aspx

— On April 29 at 9:00 am there is a Lions Club Convention Flag Ceremony, we need scouts to perform the morning flag ceremony. Please let Mr. Wilcox know if you are interested in helping.

— The signup for NYLT is now open: (https://scoutingcolorado.org/camps/tahosa-high-adventure-base/national-youth-leadership-training/). This is a week-long leadership experience that is highly recommended for all scouts. To attend, scouts must be 13 years old, First Class, have completed ILST, and have a scoutmaster recommendation, so if you are interested, please speak with Mr. Wilcox.
