The PACHAUG STATE FOREST BACKPACKING TRIP is tentative
for Labor Day Weekend. Details are still being worked
out. While challenging, this is an excellent beginner
backpack that is suitable for any first year scout who
is in good physical condition. Any scout who has not
hiked with the troop and who is interested in going on
the fall hiking trip should plan to attend. Special gear
needed includes hiking shoes, non-cotton hiking socks
(such as wool), rain gear, a light-weight sleeping bag,
and non-cotton clothing. The troop will provide tents,
backpacks, stoves, and cook gear. The troop owns a
number of backpacks or you can use your own if it fits
properly. Anyone interested in this trip will meet
briefly after the fairbooth meeting on August 12. This
trip can fulfill several requirements for the Camping
Merit Badge as well as 2ndClass requirement 1b for a
five mile hike and 2nd or 1st class cooking.
There will be a PATROL LEADER COUNCIL MEETING (Class A
uniform) on Tuesday, September 9, 5:30-6:30 PM at Camp
Richard, just before the first troop meeting. All Patrol
Leaders, Senior Patrol Leader, and Assistant Senior
Patrol Leader must attend. Any Patrol Leader who cannot
attend needs to contact his Assistant Patrol Leader so
that each patrol is represented. We now ask that all
assistant patrol leaders and all scouts with
administrative positions of responsibilties attend the
PLC as well.
The first TROOP MEETING of the year will take place on
Tuesday September 9 at 6:30 PM at Camp Richard in
Charlestown or, if there is rain, the Richmond School
Cafeteria (Class A beige shirt).
Let me know if you have questions.
