The troop had a very successful Campout this past weekend at Boonsboro.  18 scouts and 8 adults were in attendance. The older scouts did a fine job leading and teaching the younger scouts and things went very smoothly.  As usual we had our allotment of rain and then some, but with the pavilion we stayed dry and even managed to avoid the blue fog.  It turns out that the fish were biting as well.


We will be holding our Summer Court of Honor at our regular meeting on the 10th of October.  October 3rd will be the last meeting to get a Board of Review before the Court.  We will be reviewing the adventures of the Summer so come one and all to see your scouts in action.
