Be Prepared: Jan. 7 mtg.- Knots and Lashings/ Advancement

Happy New Year everyone!

At the meeting this week we will be teaching and reviewing knots and some lashings, and setting some time aside for advancement in between stations.  The boys will be practicing some knots – two half-hitches, square, taut-line hitch, bowline, and clove hitch. We’ll also doing some square lashes, shear lashes and diagonal lashes with frapping to finish off. We may even have time for a knot relay as a finish up.  Also- think about a goal for yourself as a Scout this year.   WEAR CLASS A AND BRING HANDBOOK.
