December Court of Honor, December 7  – Potluck at 6 PM

We will be holding our December Court of Honor and Troop Christmas Party Potluck on December 7 at 6 PM, so please plan to attend with your family. Scouts will have a gift exchange: each Scout who wants to participate will need to bring a wrapped gift with a value of $15 or less. We will have a potluck dinner, please sign up for what you will bring at the link below. If you are not bringing a meat dish, please consider signing up for two items.

Winter Camp at Kia Kima – December 27-30

For the first time in a long while, the Troop is planning to send a contingent to Kia Kima Winter Camp.  The dates are December 27-30.  Snow is possible at that elevation and time of year.  We'll be camping in our own tents but eating in the dining hall.  Scouts will be able to sign up for 3 merit badges (See page 3 of the Leader's Guide for the list).  The cost will be $140 for Scouts and $100 for Adults.  Registration is now open so some classes are starting to fill up (specifically Welding).  If your Scout is interested in attending, please let John Dockstader know which merit badges he wants to earn. He can register right away without payment but would like the money turned in by November 30th.  Please call John Dockstader at 512-364-5453 if you have any questions.


Just a reminder – Scouts need to bring their BSA Handbook to all Troop meetings
