4/15/13 – We started off today’s meeting with a moment of silence for the
victims and the families of the victims of the Boston explosion. We
then reviewed the biking camp out which will be held May 18-19. Sign
up on troop kit to show that you will attend. Also there are new
Class-B shirts for sale. We will also have Island Fest coming up soon
so make sure you sign up for this, if you attend for 8 hours this can
count as tone of your citizenship in the community requirements. After
these announcements the second year scouts went through a
demonstration on how to purify water with what resources are available
in the wild. The newest scouts went with Mr. Hudgins and Mr. Holcomb
to learn a little more about scouts and our troop. The older scouts
went outside and worked on the bow drills a little more. We used a new
kind of wood for a base and we produced better and faster results. We
then had a scoutmasters moment where Mr. Del Missier showed us
documentation of his eagle project and we had some words of wisdom
from Mr. Whitworth who said that our eagle project may be a chore to
us now but we will later reflect on it so we should make our mark. We
then closed out with our prayer.
4/1/13 – This meeting was an interesting one. We had the older scouts
go outside with dowels that we had been working on for 2 weeks now. We
then used a wooden bow to make a fire. We had many scouts who
accomplished this task. The newest scouts went upstairs for meal
planning for the family camp out. The family camp out will be this
Saturday and Sunday. You must register on troopkit to attend, today is
the Deadline for sign-up so if you haven’t yet you should hurry! More
info will be available on troopkit.

At today’s court of honor we had a guest come from the boy scout
hierarchy, she said that we are having a fundraiser for all the scouts
and any scouts who bring in $150 or more will receive a patch. We also
had many rank advancements. All the new scouts attended and a lot of our
normal scouts attended. After introduction and rank advancement we
distributed merit badges. Lots of scouts got multiple merit badges, keep
up the good work! We then inducted the troop positions. After all that
we were dismissed.
3/18/13 – Today’s troop meeting was the first meeting with our new
scouts. After they introduced themselves we went to announcements
coming up is the family camp out which will be held on April 6th at
the Withalacochee state park. Then we split of into groups with the
newest scouts staying in the main room to watch an introduction video
about how to wear their uniforms and other scout necessities, the
older scouts went up stairs to watch a video about starting fire. The
the older scouts started whittling down miniature wood posts into
octagonal shapes to be used as dowels. Later everyone came back to the
main room for closing. We are selling a coupon card for many stores
including legoland, pinch a penny, McDonald’s, the scout store, bass
pro shop and a few more. They go for $5 a piece and the troop gets a
some of the profit so please stock up and sell!
