December 1 Meeting and PLC

Tomorrow night’s agenda: Dec 1, 2014
PLC at 6pm: All Senior Patrol Staff, the Troop Scribe, and patrol leaders.
Troop Meeting 7pm: Everybody else.
All Scouts bring their scout handbooks tomorrow night! We will also be covering our upcoming (Dec 6-7) Wilderness Survival Campout skills at the meeting.
Campout this coming weekend. Wilderness Survival at Camp Bromelsick. We will meet at 9am on Saturday morning at the cabin and leave for Bromelsick by 9:30. Bring a sack lunch and then a primitive cookable dinner (this will be covered at tomorrow night’s meeting). We will begin building our survival shelters and complete them before dark. Dinner will be cooked over a campfire with no pots, pans, spatulas, small nuclear devices, or any other iron chef cooking gear. We will then camp over night at Bromelsick in our shelters and break camp at 9am on Sunday and head back to the cabin.
Projected weather forecast is 50 degrees daytime, 43 degrees night. No rain until Sunday around 4pm. So it should be perfect Wilderness Survival Camping! 

All first years, second years, and third years who have not completed Wilderness Survival Merit Badge should not miss this campout. It completes the badge for most of you and is a one night campout! Last year we missed it…don’t miss it this time!
Yours in Scouting, Scoutmaster Bob
