Great Council Camporee!
Ga-Ga Ball, Human Foosball, Trap Shooting, CPR Training, Fireworks and more with hundreds of Scouts Statewide, what a great campout and what a great weekend! Thank you to all of the Scouts, Scouters and Parents that joined us this weekend for the Montana Council Camporee! We have created a photo album on our Troop Facebook page for the photos, please post copies of your photos from this weekend there so that we can all share.
A special “shout-out” to four of our boys that participated in the Scouting Pep Band at the Camporee! Tyler Copenhaver, Ryan Detrick, Mitchell Evans, Marco Larios and Max Weissman all brought their instruments and tried out for he band. The band sounded great–thank you all for your enthusiasm!
We will NOT be meeting tonight as we have just completed a fairly long campout and a number of us wish to attend Matt Farrey’s Eagle Court of Honor tonight. However, Mrs. Detrick will still be doing a Personal Fitness PT test tonight at Gibson Park. Please get in touch with her if you want to participate.
Our next Troop meeting will be Monday, June 30 at Trinity Lutheran Church at 7pm. We do have a number of Troop leadership items to discuss, and we will be awarding “Best Camper” for our Troop from this Campout then. Please make a point to attend.
A few additional items:
* We are still scheduled to have a Sluice Box float trip this coming Sunday, June 29. This is an event for older Scouts that are strong swimmers. If you want to take part in this activity, I need to hear from you by tomorrow night, Tuesday, June 24. Please email, text or call me by then. If we do not have at least four Scouts that are going to take part, we will not have that activity.
* The District is scheduled to march the Overlook Park flag down Central Avenue for the Independence Day parade, and to march that flag into Centene Stadium that night for the Voyager Baseball Game. Do you want to take part in either of these activities? You will get free admission to the Baseball game if you take part in that ceremony. That game will include fireworks that evening. I need to provide the District a head count; please email, text or call me by tomorrow night, June 24, if you will take part in either or both parades.
* Please mark your calendars for two Eagle Courts of Honor for our boys in July! Jack Dresel’s Eagle Court of Honor will be July 12 and Jake Smith’s Eagle Court of Honor will be July 21. More details about these Courts can be found on our Troop Facebook page.
* Parents, please begin thinking about a time when we can hold a Committee Meeting in the next few weeks. We have a number of items we need to discuss.
