We had a great time at Skymount the weekend of November 15th, 2014. The weather decided to come down on us and be cold, 21 degrees Friday night, 30’s Saturday night. We completed a 5 mile hike with Scouts working toward Second Class and had fun exploring a new camp for many of us.
Saw this cool quick video from Troop 32 in Springfield Massachusetts, how about making this at Winter Camp ?
The 2015 Troop 197 MBU sign up is now available that will be at Fellowship United Methodist Church in Murfreesboro on February the 7th. I believe we will qualify for the discounted rate and the cost will be $20.00 per scout and that would include lunch.
Please take a look and let me know ASAP what classes anyone would be interested in attending. Please give me a 1st and 2nd choices. I would like to submit starting Monday 12/1. This is popular MBU and it will fill up quick..
Here is the link to the Troop 197 website if anyone wants to look at any additional information. http://www.bsatroop197.com/mbu/
Scouts & parents, it’s going to be COLD on this campout. Ben B. will have an email going out by tomorrow with more details.
PLEASE be sure you have proper cold weather gear, stocking hat, gloves, warm socks, boots, jackets, sweat shirts etc…. Think layers! Hand warmers for your sleeping bag at night and a COLD WEATHER RATED Sleeping bag, 0-20 degrees would be ideal. You can find all this gear at Walmart, Academy, Dicks Sporting Goods etc…
You can also add a fleece blanket to your sleeping bag for extra warmth. And a mat or cot to be off the cold ground helps too.
Be sure your Scout knows he’ll need to change to clean dry clothes every night for sleeping, wearing clothes worn during the day will have sweat trapped in them and you will be COLD COLD COLD.
We’re going to have a great time, remember, a Scout is always prepared!
Troop 422 and numerous Cub Scout packs too part in a Flag retirement ceremony tonight. The Scouts showed great respect and reverence during this important event. We’re all very proud of them.
Good article about being prepared outdoors.
