Be Prepared for 5/4 Mtg.- Duck Pond Campout mtg. / Scout Skills / Physical Fitness

Hi Troop-

This week we’ll be starting out with a meeting for all who plan to attend the Duck Pond Campout (a pond just below Skytop Tower) on May 20-21.  We’ll be meeting in patrols to decide on a menu and who will do the shopping and meal planning.  Keep in mind that this is a requirement for advancement.  If you need this, please be sure to speak up at the meeting.  Be sure to sign up for the Campout this week.  This is a great introductory backpacking trip (1 mile into camp).  We will also be doing some Scout skill work and the physical fitness requirements for those who need it.

ALSO- We will need some help this Saturday as we will be doing some Trail maintenance at Minnewaska State Park Preserve.  It will be 9-2 on Saturday, May 6.  This is a great opportunity for some community service and a chance to get out for a nice hike.  Sign up at the mtg. OR e-mail springfarm50@yahoo.com  if you plan to help out.  We will meet at the church at 9 am Sat. and you will need a bag lunch.

Mr. Longbotham
