First Aid Competition Tonight – remember your Popcorn forms
I hope that you all had a great weekend! We will be having a First Aid competition at our regularly scheduled Troop meeting tonight, 7pm at Trinity Lutheran Church, please make a point to bring your first aid kits and review any and all first aid in your handbooks. Anything covered in your books for Tenderfoot through First Class rank is fair game for the competition! I have listed a summary of those skills below.
Please remember to bring your Popcorn forms and any money you have collected so far to the meeting! Mrs. Frost has some great weekly prizes she will be giving out to top sellers. Last week, Michael (our top seller for the week) won some free passes to the Museum of the Rockies in Bozeman! What will the top seller win this week? Come to the meeting to find out.
At our last meeting, the Troop decided to have a campout during the weekend of November 8 in the Little Belts. If there is snow, we will have snowshoeing and sledding at this campout. If not, we will have some Fall nature hikes at gorgeous locations like Memorial Falls. Please make room on your calendar to join us at this campout.
I look forward to seeing you at the meeting tonight!
Yours in Scouting,
