Happy Leap Day!!

Troop 770 had a big weekend this weekend.  On Saturday, 23 Scouts attended the Hampden-Sydney Merit Badge College where each Scout had the opportunity to earn two merit badges. 
Pictures here.

Then at our meeting yesterday, Scouts made tacos for Cooking Merit Badge.  Thanks again to Jeanne Laughlin for teaching this badge and to Ted Doll who passed on his culinary expertise to the Scouts as well.

Some Scouts still need to cook meals at home which includes pricing out the items.  See the merit badge worksheet for details. Once you have completed the requirements, contact Ms. Laughlin to finalize your blue card! 

PLC--we need to meet. Let's do that at the Troop meeting on Sunday. We will stay a few minutes after the meeting.

There is a lot of information on our troop website, but sometimes it can be confusing to find what you need.  I am in the process of re-designing the site.  Please let me know if you have any ideas or suggestions to make it better!

Here is what we have going on:
  • Summer camp Early Bird Payment Due March 5
  • March 13: Summer Camp Merit Badge Selection will be due
  • Hoping to Reschedule the caving trip for March 19.
  • 2016 Summer camp will be the week of June 19th -- details below.
See you next week!
