Troop 16 Update

Posted by Nate Smith on March 27, 2020

All in-person scout meetings and troop events are cancelled until state and county COVID-19 orders allow it. Troop meetings will be on Zoom through the end of May. Please work on merit badges and rank advancement at home. Reach out to the scoutmaster to schedule a time to zoom and share what you have worked on, or to ask for a counselor for a merit badge you want to work on.  Denver Area Council and Colorado Adventure Point is also offering some merit badges over Zoom.

Let’s stay safe and keep scouting.

Meet-up: 4:00pm at PUMC, Friday March 27th the drive is about three hours.Back Home: 2:00p at PUMC on Sunday March 29th

The new big trailer will be going with new chuck boxes (make sure your patrol chuck is fully stocked)

NOTE TO ADULTS:  We need some volunteers to do the cooking for Dirty Socks and Staff and someone to pull the trailer.  If you can help please email ewfreund@gmail.com.  Thanks.

NOTE ABOUT MEALS:

This campout will emphasize cooking requirements for Trail to First ClassTherefore, those scouts who need cooking requirements for Trail to First Class have priority when it comes to planning, preparing and clean-up.

Sack Dinner on Friday as per usual.  Lunch on Saturday should be a bag lunch taken into the Park and this is still a meal that needs to be planned, prepared and cleaned up.

Sunday morning should be a backpacking breakfast so the only cooking will be what can be done only with boiled water, try to be somewhat creative.
