Last night, we were stuck in our scout lounge since it was “back to school night” at Hackensack Christian School; however, we made the most of it and got a lot accomplished:
- We’ve signed up four dads and ten scouts for our upcoming camporee trip to Winnebago Scout Reservation for their annual “Buckskin Games” which include team events in:
- Tomahawk Toss/Knife Throwing
- Blindfolded Rowboat Racing
- Shotgun/Rifle/Archery Competition
- Fire Building (timed event)
- and more!
- The troop confirmed Kurtis as the new Senior Patrol Leader
- The patrols will elect Patrol Leaders at the next meeting, and then Kurtis will appoint his assistant and the other PORs
- We reviewed the annual popcorn sale product line up and details
- We discussed meal planning for the upcoming camporee (keep it simple, consider “no-cooking” options so that we can spend less time on clean up duty)
- The scouts played a round of “sardines” outside
We concluded the meeting (ON TIME!) with our devotional Scoutmaster Minute titled “Be Prepared”.
Next meeting is Monday 9/24/2012 at 7PM. SM Farrell will be out of town; however, ASMs Ward and Tarantino will be there along with other parents. Several Boards of Review are planned — parents we need you!
