Bomber Hike Oct 19-21

Posted on Sep 22 2018 - 10:24pm

Everyone at last week’s meeting heard Mr. Rossi talk about the Bomber Hike. This is a very good event for all scouts who have been to Scoutland or on another Troop 3 Hike (we’re looking at you Star and Life Scouts!) October 19-21st, Troop 3 will go backpacking in New Hampshire’s White Mountains. The scouts will hike to the site of a WWII B-18 bomber crash and survey the remaining wreckage. On Sunday, depending on the weather, the boys will have the opportunity to hike a nearby peak as well. This is a moderately strenuous trip. Scouts will need to carry a full backpack several miles and set up camp. The hike to the crash site and the separate peak on Sunday will be done using day packs, not full backpacks.

Quick review - Phones at meetings.

Posted on Sep 22 2018 - 10:20pm

We hadn't brought this up yet this year, but it seems like a good time to do it. There has been an increase into the number of phones coming out of pockets and distracting from what's going on in the meeting. In order order to be engaged in what's going on and respectful of the Scouts and Leaders that have planned the meeting and events, we ask that Scouts either leave their phones home when they come to Scout meetings or be prepared to be asked to leave the phone in the designated container in the office. This should prevent any inadvertent damage or loss and keeps everyone active participants. It's 90 minutes once a week and if a Scout needed to use a phone or be reached in an emergency, there are plenty of adults present and the Scout House has a phone.  Thanks for your attention. 

Troop Committee is looking for new members

Have you thought to yourself “Gee, I’d like to help with the Troop but can’t make it to meetings every Monday night” or “I think the Troop is great, but I‘d love to find a way to participate without going into the woods”. Maybe you’ve thought “this is OK, but I’ve got some ideas on how to make it better!”
