Happy New Year everyone!
This week we will be welcoming guest Scoutmaster Glenn Eckert back for a continuation of a night of digital electronics and using arduinos.
(I will not be there as I will be at a Council leader’s mtg. with Mrs. Hein.) This meeting was a big hit last time and the PLC wanted to invite Mr. Eckert back for more. PLEASE BRING your laptop with the following program downloaded. *** Here is the link for anyone who would be willing to bring a lap top for use at the meeting. You should download the arduino IDE and make sure you have the RGB library installed.
To start off the New Year, time will also be set aside to meet in Patrols and write down plans for which Merit Badge session you’ll be in next week and 3 requirements you’ll work on to get signed off. Take a look and come prepared.
UPCOMING EVENTS: Winter Fest 2017- The troop will be taking sled teams up for Klondike Derby and teams of 2- 15 +yr olds for the Alaskathon. Mr. Longbotham will be leading this and it promises to be a great event. We will need one more leader. There will be stations such as fire making, first aid, orienteering, knots, shelter building, ice rescue, snowshoeing, sled racing and more. Sign up this week to go.
ALSO, Summer Camp will be July 2-7 this year (first session). Signup on bulletin board.
