Scoutmaster Update

Brent Browning

This weekend we had 21 Scouts at LAUMC in the Creekside kitchen working on the now Eagle-required Cooking merit badge.  I have seen photos and heard that it was a BLAST.  Our Scouts got to scale, clean, and fry a fish, plan, cook, eat and much more.  There is a great team of adults who have planned and are teaching this merit badge.  A great team effort.

Tomorrow Night

First Year Scouts will be working on Second Class requirements #6 - identify/show evidence of 10 animals. The first year is coming to a close...

Main Troop Scouts will be doing art as part of the art/drama/music theme this month.

San Diego - January 18-20, 2014

This trip is now FULL!  Participants will meet at 9pm for information disbursement.

Calendar updates

We have made some updates due to the lack of snow and the upcoming holidays/breaks:

1/28 - Court of Honor (moving this out a week due to holiday)

2/8-9 - Beginning Backpacking trip (first years welcome!)

2/11 - First Year Parent Orientation (incoming first year parents)

2/11 - First Year Parent Transition (outgoing first year parents)

Great opportunity to complete Cit in Comm Merit Badge Requirement 4B

Prior to the troop meeting this Tuesday, Los Altos School Board President Tammy Logan will be meeting with us and answer questions on local educational issues in the community. This is a great opportunity for any scout to get requirement 4B checked off, even if you did not take the merit badge class last fall. All scouts are welcome to attend.

When: January 14 at 6 pm. in room 9

Remember to bring your merit badge cards for signatures. There will also be a signup sheet for any scout needing to do a presentation in early February for the merit badge.

Please let Mrs. Stanley know if you have questions.
