Hello Scouts,

Next week we will begin the Medicine merit badge and another merit badge TBD (maybe one of the citizenship badges).

Here’s the update:

1) February 17 – Joseph’s Eagle project from 9:00 – 5:00.

2) February 22 – Court of Honor. This will be a potluck with more details to follow. Please check the e-mail sent by Mrs. Lagerquist to ensure all your merit badges and rank advancement have been recorded.

3) March 2 – District Merit Badge College — great opportunity to earn merit badges.

4) April 6 – 7: Rocky Mountain Train Show – Scouts in uniform receive free entry and can complete the Railroading Merit Badge. More information at: www.rockymountaintrainshow.com.

5) April 5 – 7 (probably): Airforce Academy Campout (probably – pending approval from the academy) – more details and sign-up to follow.

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 now also have a space on our SeaBase crew. This is sailing in the Caribbean starting on May 24. Please, let Mr. Wilcox know if you are interested.

8) 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
