No Troop Meeting Tonight (07/22/2013)

No troop meeting tonight due to people on vacation, etc.  We will meet next week at 7 PM.

Some of our scouts have visited the 2013 National Jamboree at The Summit.  Here are some of their observations:

  • Had a wonderful time meeting and talking with families and scouters from different areas (of the country).
  • We even got to see the king and queen of Sweden while we were in the International Scouting tent.
  • We spent some time in the faith section. Got to spend some time talking to Association of Baptists for Scouting.
  • David got two Eagle Recognition letters on the spot. Also got a deal on a NESA membership that will take him to 23 years old. It was very inexpensive and eligible because he was less than 6 months from his Eagle BOR.

The National Jamboree is like crossing a county fair with a high-adventure trek and a world’s fair all rolled into one big lump.  It only happens every four years, but it’s a great time to be a scout if you can attend – even for a day.
