Scouts also need to come up with a skit for Saturday's campfire. Scouts should also be working on all First Class and below skills, including First Aid (found on trails), knot tying, fire building, and lashing. Not only can these help the younger scouts with rank, but it will help us get ready for the Backpacking trip October 22.
POPCORN & BEEF STICKS:Show & Sell is PAID for....what is left will be all profit if we can sell it. We have 10 bags of White Cheddar ($15), 7 bags of Caramel Corn ($10) and one box of Kettle Corn($25) left. We have a little less than a month to get orders in, so I hope you all are trying to sell some. I have just received 2 cases of beef sticks and will bring them Tuesday for anyone who wants to sign some out to sell.
