Fun in the Sun: Most schools are on Spring Break which means so is Troop 169. We hope everyone is enjoying the sunshine that is managing to peek out between rainstorms.
Seasoned Scouts: This is a great time to work on those odds and ends from partial merit badges. You should also be practicing your knots so you can work on them with our new Scouts. Animated Knots is a great resource with helpful videos for anyone needing to brush up on their knots. (FYI: New scouts will be working on the square knot, two half-hitches, and the taut line hitch.)
New Scouts: Don’t forget to practice the Outdoor Code (both what it says and what it means which can be found in your handbook) and work with your adult on the Parent Guide found in your handbook or online here: Parent’s Guide.
Next Week: Thursday, April 21: The Troop will continue with Pioneering and practicing knots and hitches. If time allows, Scouts will start building a camp gadget. Which camp gadget? You’ll have to show up to find out! In the meantime, keep practicing those knots!
