Troop 2 January reminders

For our Monday meetings during the month of January, please wear "Class B" uniforms - tshirt, sweatshirt, old clothes, boots, warm coat, gloves, hat - we will be working on winter outdoor scouting skills, in the building, garage and outside.

Klondike Derby 2018 – there are two derbies in January at Camp Squanto, one geared to Cub Scouts (Webelos) on 1/20  and one for Boy Scouts on 1/27. We need older scout participation both to mentor the younger scouts and to prepare a competitive sled team for the Boy Scout event.

We encourage ALL scouts to attend the event to cheer the Troop 2 team on, and remind all scouts that this is part of Scout Spirit as well as an opportunity to complete advancement requirements.

Klondike Derby Practice for Troop 2 Boy Scouts will be held in the afternoon,  from 1:30 to 3:30 on Saturday 1/6, 1/13 and 1/20 at the Clubhouse.
Also, beginning in January we will have a renewed focus on Drumming, with plans to meet on Tuesday evenings for a one hour practice. Our scouts have been working hard to learn new pieces, and the extra practice will help with that. Please keep an eye out for details.

Our Eagle Program for Thursday evening, 1/4 is cancelled due to the forecast of inclement weather. We will resume meetings on 1/11, at 7 PM.

Reminder – there is no Ski Trip this year due to declining interest. We are exploring a family tubing event, if this is of interest please let us know.
