Hello Scouts,

Thank you to everyone who attended the court of honor tonight. And for bringing so much delicious food.

I also want to thank Mrs. Lagerquist, Mrs. Rissmiller, and Mrs. Smith for all the work they put into planning, preparing, and getting all the badges.

On to the update:

1) March 2 – District Merit Badge College — great opportunity to earn merit badges. More details here: https://denverboyscouts.doubleknot.com/registration/calendardetail.aspx?activitykey=3031159&orgkey=1704&ReturnURL=//denverboyscouts.doubleknot.com/app/calendar/monthlist/1704/2024-03-02,2024-03-03/-1/0/

2) 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.

3) April 5 – 7: Airforce Academy Campout. We will camp on the grounds of the academy, maybe visit their pool, bowling alley, go for a hike, and tour the academy. The academy needs names well in advance to ensure we have all the security clearances, so please sign up ASAP. Here is the signup: https://www.signupgenius.com/go/20F0E4AAAAD22AA8-48011368-airforce

4) 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.

5) 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.

6) 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.
