It’s been a great summer, with Scouts busy at summer camp, on canoe trips and travelling to Philmont! Now it’s back to a new season of Scouting with our first fall meeting coming up on September 3rd at 7pm (we’re meeting outside as the fellowship hall is busy preparing for Country Fair). See you there!
I hope everyone had a good spring break. We’re back to our regular troop meeting this week.
The packing list and permission slip for this weekend’s backpacking trip at Camp Wakpominee is attached here: Wakpominee Backpacking 2014-04-25 Packing List and Permission
Patrols will have to complete their food shopping lists this week. Patrols can shop on Friday after arrival at the church. All attendees must sign up at the troop meeting at the latest so that the patrol grubmasters can complete their shopping lists with correct quantities. $25 payment is also due. The signup sheets will be on the table in the back of the Fellowship Hall as usual.
If the troop does not have your current med form, we must have it for this week’s camping trip. Parts A & B minimum ( http://www.scouting.org/scoutsource/HealthandSafety/ahmr.aspx ).
As a reminder, as per the summer camp instructions sent earlier, payment for summer camp is due this week.
We’ll see everyone Wednesday!

Shenendehowa Schools has cancelled all after school activities and other schools have closed early due to the potentially icy conditions forecast for this afternoon and evening. As such and due to the worsening weather I am cancelling tonight’s troop meeting.
Patrol Leaders: If possible please call your patrols to make sure that everyone gets the message.
Thank you and stay safe tonight.
Attached is the Troop Newsletter for March 2014. Also attached, are the flyers for upcoming events (i.e. troop garage sale and spaghetti dinner).
Printed copies of the newsletter are also available at the sign-up table during troop meetings.
Our next event is this Saturday, February 22, the Cub Scouts Winter Carnival. The troop will be hosting the popular Snow Snake event this year, and gathering around our always warm campfire for some light food and probably a surprise recipe or two. We’ll be meeting at 9AM at the church to pack some gear and then head up to Clifton Park Elks.
Next Wednesday, February 26, is our 2nd Court of Honor for the year, starting at 6pm at the church.
The next weekend campout is February 28-March 2. We will have a cabin at Boyhaven Scout Camp. We have a good amount of snow so hopefully we’ll get to do some serious sledding!
