Busy Scouting Month in February!
Hello Troop 26! This last meeting we introduced this month’s theme of leadership. We played some games, and then determined how they pertained to leadership.
The merit badge list for Merit Badge University (MBU) will be available on the 20th of this month. Signup for the merit badges is only a few days later, on the 27th of February, so please get your preferred choices to Mr. Weissman as soon as possible after you get the list. You can either fill up your day with one badge, or take two less involved badges 1/2 day each. MBU is on April 9th, and the Troop will be camping out at Carroll College in Helena. The Astronomy merit badge for this will occur on the 8th, and will be a campout.
This month we will be playing lots of fun goes that focus on teamwork and leadership abilities.
Coming up on the calendar:
Our next meeting, on the 8th, we will be learning the tools of the trade for leadership. There will be no meeting on the 15th due to presidents day. However, on the 16th we will be kayaking at the Natatorium from 7:00 pm- 9:00 pm. $5.00 per scout. Spring Camporee will be on the 3rd weekend of May. It will be pirate/ Robinson Crusoe themed.
The Troop Ski day will be on Feb. 27. If you bring a can of Mtn Dew, you can get $6.00 off of the lesson ticket and ski rental in the never ever package. This is only valid if you have never been skiing or snowboarding before. More info on the ski day will be available at the meeting on Monday.
