Be Prepared for 4/20 meeting: Tripod Lashing Relay and Spaghetti Tower Engineering Challenge

Hello Troop-

This week’s meeting promises to be a fun and challenging one!  We’ll be starting off with a review of tripod lashing with Marcel and then we’ll be having a fun, but serious, Patrol Relay to see which group can get that tripod made to support weight!  We’ll then be presented with an engineering challenge by Bryant.  Let’s just say it involves making a tower with spaghetti and other supplies.  It will mean teamwork and focus as it is timed.  Go teams!

Sunday, April 23- Caving trip/hike to Bonticou Crag- 3-7 pm- I need another adult to help out!
