Troop 1441 participated in the White Oak District Webelos Weekend, an event designed to introduce Cub Scouts to the world of Boy Scouting, and serve as a recruiting opportunity as the Webelos I and Arrow of Light Scouts, (old Webelos ll's) moved through and participated in a variety of challenges. 

The District's Boy Scout Troops each put on a display and participation event including fire building, knot tying, cooking, first aid, etc.

Troop 1441 managed the Webelos l fire building event and ran the fire building contest.  Our scouts did an excellent job both working with the Webelos and running the event.  Saturday evening the Troop hosted a Spaghetti Dinner for PACK 499  of St John's Webelos and parents, It was a great party.

The troop again met their goal of Cleanup, pack and leave by 10 AM.  We will have to update the challenge by changing the goal to 9:30 AM.
