We are going to Camp Chewanakee for Summer Camp 2016.  We need you to make a deposit with Mr. Grace if you plan to attend so we can know how many spots will need to be reserved. This is a Great Summer Camp and probably one of the Best in California. It is located in the Sequoia National Park with its own fresh water lake! We also need you to start making regular payments to him as well since we have a considerable payment due around January 15th. Details about the camp and actual cost are forthcoming.

The Troop is in the planning stages of organizing a trip to Philmont Scout Ranch in New Mexico. This is a BSA High Adventure Backpack Camp. A youth must be 14 years of age OR 13 years of age and completed the 8th grade by date of participation. We need to get commitments in order to know how many slots we need to put in for. If you are interested please sign up ASAP.

Knot of the week for the November 30th Troop meeting is Taut Line.

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!
(Boy Scout Motto)

Do a Good Turn Daily!
(Boy Scout Slogan)

"May the great Scoutmaster of all Scouts be with you until we meet again."
(Scoutmaster's Benediction)
