February Troop 26 Schedule
February is always a busy Scouting month. Please mark your calendar for all of these events!
Scouting’s birthday is next week, beginning with Scout Sunday on Sunday, February 5. If you wear your uniform to church on Sunday you will be eligible for a Scout Sunday patch. Please let me know if you qualify and we will get you your patch.
Our first Scout meeting of the month will be Monday, February 6. Patrol Leader’s Council will be at 6pm and our general Scout meeting will begin at 7pm, both at the Black Eagle Community Center, 2332 Smelter Avenue. Please make a point to attend PLC if you have a leadership position in the Troop. Our Scouting theme for the month is Sustainabililty, and we will be working on the (Eagle-required) Sustainability merit badge this month, led by our own Assistant Scoutmaster Dave Cunningham.
Saturday, February 11 is our Troop ski day at Showdown. We will be announcing more information about this event on at the meeting on Monday, but we hope you will attend and have a great day at the slopes. If you want to go skiing, I need to hear back from you right away so that I can get you signed up for the right options. If you need to rent equipment, you will NEED to fill out a rental form at our meeting on Monday. Please call or text me at 406-868-8982 as soon as possible if you will be going Skiing with the troop.
We will have a Scout meeting on Monday, February 13 at 7pm at the BECC. We will continue working on Sustainability merit badge.
On Monday, February 20 we will be joining the District for Scout day at the Montana Legislature! This is a great opportunity to meet your elected representatives and find out how our laws are made in Helena. This event will give you the opportunity to qualify for many advancement opportunities. If you plan on going to Helena for this event, please get back to me as soon as possible so that we can arrange the right transportation. There will be no Scout meeting on February 20 as that is President’s Day and there is no school.
Our final Scout meeting for February will be Monday, February 27 at 7pm at the BECC, where we will hopefully finish up with Sustainability merit badge.
Thanks for reading this long email and marking your calendars. Have a great Scouting month!
