I’m sorry to see this blog not being used for Troop 48. If you want to take it over for Troop 48 write or call me. Otherwise it will be shut down.
Attached is a file with more info about Mt. Cardigan including a map of the hiking trails we plan to travel.
The list of attendees for this trip is currently as follows:
If your name is not here and you would like to go, let us know.
The senior patrol leaders are also encourageing all to bring a mess kit if you have one, with a goal of reducing paper and plastic use.
Tonight the troop will be attending the first hour of the Town Meeting which begins at 7:30pm. The high school expansion vote is tonight so the topic should be at least somewhat interesting for the boys.
The scout meeting will begin at 7pm at the church hall as usual. We will walk over to the middle school at 7:20pm.
However, scouts will be dismissed at the middle school cafeteria entrance at 8:30pm sharp. Therefore, all pickups should be from the middle school at 8:30pm. Scouts wishing to stay for the entire meeting can do so if their parents are present, or if they bring a parents note stating they have permission to do so.
The town is looking for two volunteers to stay for the entire meeting and serve as microphone runners for the meeting. If anyone is interested please respond to this message ASAP (note: volunteers must stay for the entire meeting!)
Unfortunately, the trip to the Boy Scout Fall Camporee that was planned for this weekend has been canceled as one of the adult leaders who had planned on going became ill and there also was very limited scout interest.
However, the hiking trip for early November is a go for the weekend of 11/5-11/7. We are planning to hike Cardigan Mt. (website links provided below) , which is a moderately rated hike and will qualify for a required hike toward the camping merit badge.
We plan to leave Friday afternoon/evening, 11/5, hike on Saturday, 11/6, and return early on Sunday, 11/7.
Permission slips with more details will be provided at this Monday’s scout meeting and forwarded via e-mail.
If you plan to go on this trip, please confirm your interest to Mr. Braconnier at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Good Day Scouters,
The Boy Scout Fall Camporee Friday October 15th through Sunday October 17th IS ON!
Mark Braconnier and Scott Walton are our Friday Night Adult Scout Leaders. The fee for those attending the entire weekend is $35 and for those arriving Saturday after lunch the reduced fee is $25. The fee covers event registration of 8$ per scout and/or scouter, 1$ each toward the 10$ Troop registration fee, and the rest is to cover food . There does appear to be the likelyhood of at least some wind and rain so…….BE PREPRED with rain gear. Plan to dress with layers of clothing as this is Fall and the temperatures can and will vary more widely. I will follow this email up with more infomation tonight to those whom have notified mme they are coming. If you changed your mind and wish to be added contact me immediately.
Yours in Scouting,
Mr. Meagher tells me that we presently don’t have a second adult for Friday night and that we have only a handful of scouts interested in Friday night.
Since the weekend trip is a troop competition theme we need scouts to be there the entire day on Saturday if our troop is to compete. Any one interested in attending should email Mr. Meagher by noontime tomorrow. We will announce whether the trip is on or off tomorrow evening.
