Yearly Planning Meeting

Scout Year Planning Meeting and Pizza Party

When: Aug 31st 6-8pm

Where: Community Room at the library

What: I would like as many of the scouts as possible to attend.  This meeting is where the scouts come up with a plan of what they want to do for activities during the year.  Remember at the last meeting in June I told everyone to think about what they wanted to do in the Troop.  If you can’t make it because of a prior commitment then send me 3 ideas so at least you will have some skin in the game.

OH and don’t forget we will be eating PIZZA!

Mount Cardigan Hike - Saturday, August 27th

Posted by tom.inzinga on Aug 10 2016 - 9:31pm
Hello Everyone, 
Sorry to be piggy-backing on Brandon's email but I guess when I tried sending this before I didn't have the full email list. As some of you may have already heard though, the troop has planned a hike up Mount Cardigan on Saturday, August 27th. However, unlike some of the hikes that we have recently completed, the main focus of this one will be to satisfy some of the requirements for the coooking merit badge. As of right now the plan is to meet at Harold Martin at 8:00 a.m. so that we can reach the base of the mountain by about 9:00 a.m. and cook a late breakfast there before starting toward the summit. Somewhere on the mountain we will cook/prepare a lunch and snack of some sort as well but feel free to bring your own personal trail food too. Also, due to how specific the requirements for the badge are, scouts participating in the cooking are only allowed to cook for 2 to 4 other scouts. Therefore, it is important that both anyone interested in attending the hike responds as soon as possible so that we have a rough estimate of attendance in advance and that any scouts interested in assisting with the cooking also promptly respond in order to secure their role and help with the planning.
Thanks for your time!
-Seamus Quinn
P.S. The West Ridge Trail (which I think is the one that we're planning to take) is only 1.5 miles long and rises just 1,200 feet from the base to the summit so we should be back to Hopkinton by the mid-Afternoon on Saturday.
For any scouts interested in helping with the cooking, here is a link to the actual merit badge requirements, of which we will hopefully complete #6 on this hike.
