Welcome to BSA Troop 228.
Saturday, October 18 in Sunland
From Beverly Compton:
She needs between 2 – 20 volunteers. The volunteers would be taking down/staking tables and chairs; putting things away, taking down decorations, moving pumpkins, etc.
They expect over 1000 attendees.
I recommend scouts high school age for this event. Danny & Timmy cannot be there. Let me know if this is feasible for our troop or you can contact Jan directly.
The scouts can get service hours for this. JMaseda@lsscommunitycare.org
Towsley Canyon Hike
Saturday, October 4th
This is a beautiful hike through Towsley Canyon. It’s a great opportunity to get some exercise, and it will satisfy the “5 mile hike” requirement for Second Class.
A map to the trailhead can be found here.
For those who enjoyed this weekend’s Fall Weather Preview, well, next weekend won’t be like that. Bring lots of water, and we’ll try to be off the mountain before it gets too hot.
Webelos Weekend at Walker Ranch
Friday, October 17th – Sunday, October 19th
We’re going to ask for paperwork to be due by October 5th so the scouts have time to form patrols and plan accordingly. The Permission Slip is here.
Yes, that beloved Activity Consent form is here…
Start planning your pumpkin launchers (can you spell trebuchet?) now!
If you know of any Webelos that may be interested (I’m talking to you, Den Chiefs!), you can pass along this flier and give them a friendly invitation. The more the merrier.
