Hello Scouts, I hope you are all having a nice break and enjoying either the outside snow or the climate controlled rooms.
Last meeting we established Patrols, The Lobster Hammers, and the Space Potatoes. Congratulations to Evan who ranked up to Second Class and Bryce who ranked up to Star Scout at our last meeting. All Scouts should bring their handbook to every meeting and if rank advancements have been completed find a First Class or higher Scout to sign off on your rank advancements.
