High Adventure Trip 2020 Boundary Waters Bound
The High Adventure Trip next June will be a 10 day wilderness canoe trip into an area of northern Minnesota on the Canadian border called the Boundary Waters.
Five have expressed interest so far:
Nicholas Stahn (possible)
If you're interested, reply to the eBuggle with the subject "HAT Trip" . We will have the first HAT information meeting in two weeks, on Nov 22, after Buc night.
All scouts currently in eighth grade or above who will be junior leaders at summer camp next year are eligible to attend as long as they are First Class or above and meet advancement and attendance requirements.
Can / Wreath Credit Update
The next can drive will occur very soon (possibly next weekend). Look for details in an upcoming eBuggle extra.
You can look at the most recent eBuggle for the current balances for all member of Troop 61 who have brought aluminum cans to can drives or sold wreaths at Christmas time. These funds can be used to pay for campout or buy camping / scouting related gear.
Registration Scholarships Coming Next Year
The cost of annual BSA registration for next year is increasing due to new costs at the national level. We will supply details in the next eBuggle. To help offset this expected cost increase the Troop committee voted to provide an Event Scholarship of $20 per scout to be applied, $10 per event, to any outing or campout held next year starting with Winter Camp. Again, more details coming next week.
Aidan Mayrand Says Thanks
The Wisconsin DNR contacted me this week letting me know that the completed bulletin board has been installed at Jag Lake
Campground. Below are pictures of the completed structure.
I want to thank the all of the Junior Leaders and Adult Leaders who helped with my project for their help constructing, roofing, staining, and moving around the 10 foot tall kiosk.
Boy Scout have many opportunities to learn leadership skills.
Leadership positions are also needed for certain rank advancements.
