Our meeting on Tuesday, May 16, is at:
Midtown Family Fitness & Racquetball Club
51 Sumner St
7:30 PM to 9:00 PM (half an hour later than a usual meeting)
So, just reminding you guys that this week’s meeting (Jan. 31) will not be held at the church as it usually is. We are going to Midtown Fitness on Sumner St, near the John Smith Soccer Academy. We’ll be doing some games and stuff to get active. Don’t forget to wear a class B!
Coming up in January, we have two outstanding activities. The first is the Christmas Tree Pickup. That is Jan. 8, so mark your calendars. We really need all the help we can get for this one, so please help out even if you cannot stay the entire time.
The weekend of January 21 is our freezeout. We will be doing some sort of first aid station there. Remember that it will be January, so pack for very cold weather. We will go over proper layering and such in a future meeting.
Which reminds me… please do come to the meetings. Even if you don’t need advancement, we go over what is happening in the future, and if that doesn’t faze you, there are plenty of merit badges to earn. And if THAT isn’t interesting, you get to hang out with cool guys like me. So, I hope to see you all next Tuesday.
Patrick, your webmaster
So, here’s what the plan is for this Tuesday’s meeting:
7:00-7:10 — Pick movie for church sleepover.
7:10-7:35 — Meal plans. Go through what they are with new guys, then make them.
7:35-8:00 — Advancement.
8:00-8:25 — Game.
8:25 — Announcements, closing.
See you there,
Just as a quick reminder to you all, there will not be a troop meeting next week (December 29), as schools will be closed. The last meting of the year is December 22. In other news, we have the Christmas tree pickup right at the start of January 2016, on Sunday the 3rd, so don’t forget about that. And on the second weekend of January (9-10) we have the cold (hopefully) toes trip! How exciting! I hope to see you all at the next meeting, and happy holidays.
Your friend, Patrick.
