Archery Merit Badge Sept 15

Archery is a fun way for Scouts to exercise minds as well as bodies, developing a steady hand, a good eye, and a disciplined mind. This merit badge can provide a thorough introduction to those who are new to the bow and arrow—but even for the experienced archer, earning the badge can help to increase the understanding and appreciation of archery.  We have years of experienced archers willing to help the boys learn these skills.  Learn about shooting bows, the parts of the bow and arrow and even make your own arrows.

Archery Shooting - West Town Archery 4135 N 126th St, Brookfield, WI 53005 Sept 16th - 2-3pm

Join us at West Town for a 1 Hour shoot on the Range with recurve bows in order to get one of the requirements finalized for the badge.  We will only be doing one open shooting period so it is important that you make this shooting period with the Troop.

Devils Lake —Oct 6-8

As fall weather approaches we are greeted with the fall colors that come with it. There are many hiking trails and scenic spots for wonderful photo opportunities. This year we will be doing something a little different.

Rock Climbing merit badge! Oct 8 — 7:30 am - 3 pm

For many years we have watched families and other scouts working on Rocking Climbing adventures. This year, we get our chance to be part of that.  We are locked in with 12 boys wishing to be part of the rock climbing. Joseph Hagen will be sending out emails and waivers about dates and times to all interested parties in order to get this badge.
Permission slips for Devils lake are due Sept 22 by the end of the Troop meeting.   All forms for Rocking Climbing due by Sept 29th

Crafts Plus What’s that?

Mr. Saeger and Mr. Gengler like crafts and have shared this interest through the years with many scouts and adults who wanted to learn more about basket making, paracord bracelet making, weaving, leather crafts, bead work, etc. to create the piece or project they had in mind. 
Well we are all in luck. They have decided to offer their expertise to anyone in the troop be it scouts, parents or other adult leaders in the troop that have something in mind that they would like to create but would like some help learning how to do it.
The details are still coming together but the plan is this would take place at the scout house on Wednesday nights outside of our regular meetings from 6:30pm -8:30pm starting in September.
Scouts that want to participate would need to have a parent accompany them to make sure we have enough adult supervision for scout safety. If you are a parent of a scout and just you would like to do are not required to bring your scout. :)
There will be a sign-up sheet coming for those interested and a place to write in your project or the craft you would like to learn to make sure we have the necessaries.

Note:There could be a materials cost depending on the project and what materials are needed. (It would be very minimum to cover cost of any materials needed only) This is not a money maker. The goal is to have fun and learn a skill.
If this sounds interesting stay tuned for the details and where to go to sign-up.
