December 11th Troop Meeting

Published by under T16 on December 9, 2018

Hello Troop 16! Here is the plan for this week’s meeting.

The main activity for this meeting will be our traditional white elephant game. This means try to find an item that is worth $5 or less to wrap and bring to the meeting. After the game ends, everyone should have a cool gift they opened to take home.

This week will be the last regular meeting of the year since next week is PLC and there will be no meetings for the next two weeks. This means the next regular meeting will be on January 8th. Don’t forget that the end of this week is the lock in which means you need to be signed up by December 11th if you want to attend.

See you all Tuesday!

December 4th Troop Meeting

Hello Troop 16! Here is the plan for this week’s meeting.

During this meeting, the main activities will be cyber chip training and Christmas skits. We have decided to do cyber chip training at this week’s meeting instead of the lock in. This means if you are going to the lock in and want to bring electronics, then you need to come to the meeting this week. Lastly, if you haven’t signed up for the lock in yet, then remember to sign up before the deadline on December 11.

See you all Tuesday!
