Discussion Items and Other Business:

  • Custodian: Committee approved $50 gift card for the custodian
  • Neckerchiefs: Committee approved purchase of 50 neckerchiefs
  • Participation of Adults: The past backpacking trip had many adults participating, almost to the ratio of 1:1. There was a concern that having too many adults participate, does not give scouts the sense of being alone in wilderness and be self-reliant without their parents watching over them. At the same time we do not want to discourage the parents participation as they also need to bond together for the health and future growth of the Troop. A suggestion was made to allow the parents to continue to participate but have them hike and camp far away from the scout, almost to the affect that two groups do not see each other.

Long Term Outings Planned

  • Camp Mataguay (2012)
  • Camp Cherry Valley (2013)
  • Hawaii (2013)
  • Philmont (2013)
