I very very sorry to say that we will have to reschedule tomorrows canoe trip due to the a high risk of thunderstorms tomorrow. The weather is for showers most of tomorrow and tomorrow night but that alone was not enough of reason to cancel until now. I know everyone was looking forward to this trip as was I. I had even decided to stay overnight and sleep in a hammock.
As a precaution I had reserved the same site for Saturday, May 24th, just in case this happened. Can everyone get back to me today or tomorrow and let me know if you are able and interested in going that weekend. That is Memorial Day weekend and lots of people have other plans but it is an option for us. Thanks and again sorry for the weather.

As announced at last Sunday’s meeting, the spring church cleanup is scheduled for Saturday, May 17, 9:00 to 11:00 a.m. This is a great opportunity for scouts to get in those required community service hours and give back to our charter organization, which graciously opens their vestry to us each week.
Please reply to me (so as to not clutter everyone’s mailbox) at firstname.lastname@example.org to sign up. Scouts can come for as much time as they can or for the full 2 hours. Let me know when you can arrive and when you will be leaving so I can put together a roster. I will then share the roster with the entire Troop.

The weather finally cooperated and the boys were able to have the annual campout in the Campbell Town Forest in Norfolk this past weekend. 22 Scouts attended and were not deterred by the few late night rain drops. Chef Mike M. cooked up some delicious burgers over the campfire, while chef Ben C. tended to the chicken burgers on the grill.
The boys also played the traditional game manhunt and took turns telling stories around the campfire while eating some pretty tasty Dutch oven cobbler. For breakfast, we broke tradition and made pancakes, which with proper oiling of the griddles, was not so bad; based on input from someone who did not have to clean the griddle
Hopefully the new Scouts enjoyed the their first overnight as a Boy Scout and that everyone remembers to log it in their handbooks.
Just a reminder we have a Parents committee meeting on Sunday, April 6th, at 7:15pm at the Federated Church.
