Sign up for the Pancake Breakfast/Scout Sunday - 2/7

 

The pancake breakfast fund raiser is back this year! And just like last year, we need volunteers to sign up to help support the troop. Please follow this link to a sign-up genius page for items we need donated to the troop. Some are food items, others are kitchen utensils and supplies. Be sure to have your name clearly marked on any item you wish to have returned. We appreciate all the help you can give to the troop for our fund raising efforts.

 

Also, please sign up on our web site to let us know you are coming to help. Our scouts will also be acting as ushers and will read a short passage for the church service. Please join us in supporting our troop and the church that makes our troop possible.

Winter Cabin Campout

Winter Cabin Cleaning

     On January 8-10th, Troop 84 went to Camp Falling Rock for some cabin camping.  We all had a great time cooking, playing games, and breaking the ice, literaly, with sticks. We had a patrol competition, using our Scouting skills.  The grubmasters made tasty meals, and we had a great night sleep, after a game of Grog. In the end we had our first campout in the last year where it didn't rain in the morning...it snowed!  We all had a great campout and even though a few of us we fell into the lake a couple times, our spirits weren't dampened!

Troop 84 T-Shirts

Now that we have a great logo provided to us by Mrs. Jergens, we need to get some Class B shirts! Have a look at the picture and go to this poll to vote for your favorite color. Costs vary depending how many places we get the logo and how many shirts we order. If every scout and Adult leader get a shirt, we can do the logos as seen in the picture (Small Left Front and Large Back) the cost would be $18 plus $2 for 2XL or $3 for 3XL. For one location or the other the cost would be $13 plus $2 for 2XL or $3 for 3XL. Here is another poll to vote on logo placement/cost.

 If you tried to vote before and got an "Access Denied" error, please try again, that issue has been resolved.

Feel free to leave a comment below.

Climbing Event

     On November 13, most of Troop 84 went to Vertical Adventures for an overnight rock wall extravaganza! For the first two hours, we climbed the rockwalls. Some were much more challenging then others. Some were straight while others were curved, twisted, and others went almost upside down! After we had to stop climbing, we started a game. THE ULTIMATE GAME OF RISK! It didn't even finish after the event was completely over and we left!

Moral of the story: if you play Risk, make sure you can finish!
