December Awards Court of Honor and Christmas Potluck Date Change

Our December Awards Court of Honor and Christmas Party was listed on our calendar for Tuesday, December 11th at 6:00 PM. We found that several had a conflict that night, so we are changing the date to Tuesday, December 4th at 6:00 PM. Please note on your calendars. On December 11th, we will have a regular Troop meeting. The Christmas food basket service project will remain on December 18th.


Each Scout should bring a wrapped gift costing no more than $20 for a gift exchange on December 4th.


Navigation Activity for First Class

Mr. Hormberg would like to schedule a 1st Class navigation activity for a day over the Thanksgiving holiday weekend. This is for all of the Scouts in the Platinum Sharks patrol and any others under 1st Class who may need requirements 4a and 4b. Please participate in this opportunity if possible, as we only offer this twice a year. Please let Mr. Hormberg know at your Scout’s availability for some or all of the following days: Wednesday, Friday, Saturday or Sunday. If not enough are available, he will seek a weekday during the Christmas break. It will take place at W.C. Johnson Park in Collierville.
These two requirements are: 

4a. Using a map and compass, complete an orienteering course that covers at least one mile and requires measuring the height and/or width of designated items (tree, tower, canyon, ditch, etc.). 

4b. Demonstrate how to use a handheld GPS unit, GPS app on a smartphone, or other electronic navigation system. Use GPS to find your current location, a destination of your choice, and the route you will take to get there. Follow that route to arrive at your destination.


Help Needed with Social Media

We are looking for an adult volunteer to help post information and pictures on a regular basis to our troop’s Facebook page. If you are interested in helping with this, please contact Kim Ridenhour.
