Scouting Will be Strong at Troop 26 in 2015!
I hope that you all are enjoying a wonderful winter break! I know that I have missed having Troop meetings for the past few weeks and I am looking forward to resuming Scouting in 2015!
Troop 26 will begin 2015 with a Patrol Leader’s Conference on January 5 at 6pm at Trinity Lutheran Church, 1226 1st Ave N, led by our new Senior Patrol Leader, Ryan Detrick! Our Quartermaster, Scribe and both Patrol Leaders should attend this monthly meeting. At this meeting we will be discussing Troop leadership roles for the first six months of 2015 and our Troop schedule/calendar for January and February.
Our first Troop Meeting of 2015 will follow the PLC on January 5 at 7pm at Trinity Lutheran! At this meeting we will be discussing our preparations for the upcoming Klondike Derby and going over some training for Winter camping.
For the rest of the Winter, please make a point to put a snow shovel in your vehicle for our Troop meetings. You should also dress appropriately for the potential of outdoor activities at our Troop meetings. If there is snow we will take the time to shovel out the walkway and stairs at the church during our break. I think that this is a great unit of service to help show the church how much we appreciate their hospitality to our Troop. We have been known to have a snowball fight or two in the process …
If you have not yet reviewed the program for the Zombie Apocalypse Klondike Derby, which will be January 16-18 at Camp Rotary in Monarch, MT, please do so. I have attached a copy of the program to this message. It looks like this campout will be a lot of fun! We need to be prepared for this program and I look forward to hearing about your preparations so far on Monday.
Have a wonderful New Year, and I look forward to seeing you all on January 5!
Yours in Scouting,
