Troop 88 Scribe Notes
December 13, 2011

The Librarian has asked everyone to either return your Merit Badge books or to let him know that you still have them.

There is a PLC meeting on January 7, 2012 at PEPC from 2 – 5 PM to plan the next three months of Troop meetings.  Josh will send out emails about this and to remind everyone.  If you are currently in a leadership position such as Patrol Leader, ASPL, etc. then you need to come to this meeting.

If you ordered King Soopers cards, please make sure to pick them up.

Josh commented on that we have 6 patrol flags here tonight and with a smaller number of Scouts present, that’s pretty cool!  Keep it up!

Mr. Ski said we had a great Christmas party this year and everyone had a good time.  We had Webelos visiting us tonight.  They said they were there to learn stuff.  Mr. Ski asked them if they knew how to tie knots and then told them to teach us how.
Mr. Ski apologized for the meeting tonight since the high schoolers have finals this week.

Mark A. was going for his Eagle Silver Palm boards tonight.  Aaron M. passed his Eagle board last week.  Chris C. is going before his Eagle board tomorrow night.  Congrats to everyone!

Mrs. Palmore will be sending out an email to the Troop about helping this weekend with a pancake breakfast.  Watch for the email and reply to her if you can help.

Charles G. was home for a visit and came in to see us.  He’s like 7 feet tall and couldn’t join the Marines because he was too tall.  That’s a true story!

Tonight we worked on knots and lashings.  Next year we will have a one-handed bowline tying contest and a sheetbend tying contest.  Make sure you practice!  The information is in your Scout Handbook on how to tie them.

I hope everyone has a Merry Christmas and a safe New Year!
