Current Troop Status:
Firstly, I’d like to assure everyone who expressed their concerns on the matter, that we do indeed know which way the arrow should point when shooting.
Secondly, we’re back! After two weeks of camping at Owasippe Scout Reservation, in the Manistee National Forest, we get to relax for a few weeks. But first, some results brought back. Merit badges earned: Archery (see above), Camping, Canoeing, Cooking, Emergency Preparedness, Rifle Shooting, Small Boat Sailing, Wilderness Survival. On top of that, our Scouts earned the Baden Powell Award for each week, went lake tubing, rode horseback, played ukelele at the Don Ho Memorial Beach Party, learned to rappel, and of course, absorbed several Monster Shakes in town. Zak endured his Ordeal and was therefore inducted into the Order of the Arrow, our SPL, Miles, served as Nimat for the first time, while ASM Mr. Friedl (the younger) served as Nimat for the second time. Well done, all.
Sadly, our planned excursion to Pathways to Eagle has been cancelled, due to registration problems, and difficulties navigating the process both online and in person. We will therefore, be working on said merit badges at our troop meetings.
Lastly, on the 23rd and 30th of July, our SPL, Miles, will be executing his Eagle Project by soliciting donations of toiletries to donate to the Cornerstone Community Outreach (ccolife.org), which is an organization devoted to assisting the homeless. I’m sure you all join me in wishing Miles the very best of success in this drive.
