June Troop Schedule
The bells have almost stopped ringing. The best time to Scout is Summer, and we have very exciting plans for Scouting for the next few months.
For this week, we have the opportunity to join the boys of Pack 26 for a fun evening of roller skating on Thursday, June 9 from 6-8pm at Hauer’s Skating Rink. The cost is $3/person, which you can pay at the door.
Our canoeing camping trip is this weekend! We will be eating backpacking meals which we will prepare with personal stoves. We will have some personal stoves to share if you don’t have one. Everyone is to bring their own food, enough for FOUR meals (lunch and dinner on Saturday, and breakfast and lunch on Sunday). You will be working hard in the canoe, so please bring calorie-dense meals. If you have questions about what to bring, please feel free to give me or one of our Scoutmaster corps a call for suggestions. Our phone numbers are all in Scoutbook.com.
We will be gathering at the Natatorium parking lot on Saturday morning, June 11 at 7:30am. As always, we travel in Scout uniforms. Please bring gear appropriate for both hot/sunny and wet/stormy conditions. There is likely to be a small squall sometime on Saturday. We will be watching the weather and will find shore if it arrives. Your gear in your pack should be protected by the elements; it is a good idea to line the inside of your pack with a plastic garbage bag. Please be sure to bring a hat (preferably with a wide brim) and sun protection.
I have attached our June schedule below. There may be some additions and changes to this plan, but that is what we have on the books for the moment.
Yours in Scouting,
