Merit Badge Challenge Update

Posted on Jan 8 2017 - 2:32pm

I mentioned at Tuesday's meeting that, for the most part, our scouts got into the classes that they asked for provided they met the age requirements.  There were a couple of changes.  I've attached what I believe is a finalized list.  The changes are in bold red.

A couple of reminders

Troop 161 Work day, 2016

Posted on Dec 23 2016 - 10:42am

Just another reminder that the troop 161 work day is next Friday, December 30.  Although it is an overnight event, it's one of our more hassle free days.  Scouts need to be at the Church at 9:00 on Friday morning and will be picked up at around 10 on Saturday.  There is no cost (food's on the troop) or drivers needed. 

Merit Badge Challenge - Update part 2

Posted on Dec 17 2016 - 10:44pm

There's a table attached that outlines which scouts were registered for which classes.  A couple of scouts may have been signed up for classes that may need to be "tweaked".  the classes on dog care require pre-work that should be started NOW, and that the scout be 13 as fo 1/1/17.  We have reached to the contacts for the Dixie Merit Badge Challenge to see if the classes can be swapped.  Please stay tuned for further developments.

Work Day coming very soon

Troop  161's annual work day is coming very soon.  On December 30, the troop will hold an overnight event to make repairs and upgrades to our meeting area.  Scouts should be dropped off at the church at 8:30.    The event is acutally at the church, so there's no need for drivers.  The day consisits of  completing a list of projects that our Quatermaster, Wolfgand Windholtz, has been gathering for the last several weeks.  After a day of improving our home, well have pizza and a movie at our humble home We'll meet at the Remember, many hands make light work. Cost is $15.00 per scout to cover food.
