Please sign up for the upcoming campouts –Please be sure to pay Mr. Grace for these campout.

Joshua Tree November 7th – 9th. We will be doing rock climbing, bouldering, and a hike if time permits. 

MANDATORY MEETING !  If you are going on the Joshua Tree Campout and want to climb you MUST be at the November 3rd Troop meeting. Mr. Gebelin and myself will be leading a class in climbing. This will allow us to teach the basics so we can focus on actually climbing on the campout.

December day trip to Knott’s Berry Farm – Toys for Tots, Saturday, December 13th. This was moved due to SAT testing taking place on December 6th. Mr. Beckwith is taking signups and will confirm cost.

We are starting the re-registration process for next year(2015). We need all Scouts and Scouters(registered adults) to pay the registration fees by November 17th. If you are not paid by then you will not be included in next year’s registration to Council. Please make sure that all past campouts and monies owed are paid up in order to not delay the registration process. See or contact Mr. Grace if you have Any questions.

All registered Adults MUST have a current valid Youth Protection certificate that is valid till the end of next year. If your Youth Protection will expire BEFORE December of 2016 you need to retake the on line course and get re-certified before we can process your registration.

Knot for the next Troop meeting on October 20th  is the figure eight in preparation for the Joshua Tree Campout.  ( LINK )

A Scout is Trustworthy, Loyal, Helpful, Friendly, Courteous, Kind,
Obedient, Cheerful, Thrifty, Brave, Clean, and Reverent.
(Scout Law)

On my honor I will do my best
To do my duty to God and my country
and to obey the Scout Law;
To help other people at all times;
To keep myself physically strong,
mentally awake, and morally straight.
(Scout Oath)

As an American, I will do my best to -
Be clean in my outdoor manners
Be careful with fire
Be considerate in the outdoors, and
Be conservation minded.
(Outdoor Code)

Be Prepared!

Do a Good Turn Daily!
