All the voting is finally complete and here are the results and breakdown:

On day 7, the totals were Seven Ranges (4), Falling Rock (6), Beaumont (5), so Seven Ranges was eliminated. Finally, on the last day, Camp Falling Rock kept the lead 8-7 against Camp Beaumont.
Shirt Color: During the troop meeting we picked our favorite 3 base colors to be voted on. On day 5 the score was Atomic Blue (10), Royal Blue (0) and Neon Pink (9). Royal Blue was eliminated. When the poll ended Atomic Blue was beating Neon Pink 12-11.

The leaders of Troop 84 are committed to bring the entire scouting program to each youth member. As one of the 8 methods of scouting, a robust outdoor program is vital to a complete scouting experience. A love of the outdoors and the values of scouting drive us to provide a safe environment. With COVID-19 now in our lives forever, nothing has changed in that commitment to our scouts. Presently the state health restrictions are beginning to ease and we are dedicated to implementing all the current health orders, guidelines, and recommendations from federal, state, and local authorities.
