Troop and Crew 84 went skiing February 11th through 12th. There was a camp out the day before they went skiing at the campout they learned how to build fires with Mr. Hunt. Once we got to the hills we all had a blast. There was a training course for some of the less experienced scouts.
Blackfoot is an enhanced training course that combines Scoutmaster/Troop Leader Fundamentals and Introduction to Outdoor Leader Skills. Thousands of Boy Scout Leaders graduated from Blackfoot during its 38 year history.

Brian has rejoined the Troop Committee and will serve in the new position of Health and Safety Officer. He will be responsible that the Troop is aware of and follows BSA's Health and Safety Guide in all our events and travel. Among many other things, he will be collecting all Troop members Health forms, updating the Unit first aid kit, providing opportunities for Scouts and Leaders to gain their Red Cross CPR and First Aid certifications.
It is sometimes difficult to balance the desire to increase participation at any cost, with lessons on accountability and respect for another persons time and effort. With that in mind, the Troop Committee has made some changes that may affect you, when registering for events.
1. Event registrations will close 10 days prior to the event. If you miss the registration deadline, you will need to contact the Activities Coordinator to register.
2. If the event will require food purchases or transportation, there will be an additional $5 fee for late registrations.
Scouts are regularly engaging in training and education to earn merit badges and to solidify their leadership skills. Training for adult leaders is just as important! Not only for safety and compliance, but to also learn more about the scouting program, gain a deep understanding of the mission, and to hone leadership skills. Here are several opportunities scout leaders and committee members may find interesting and helpful:
On Dec 17 we went to the Westerville Rec Center and went to the pool some of the younger scouts learned how to save people in the water we did races, went down water slides and played hide and go seek in the whole pool I think everyone had a great time hopefully we keep doing this every year!
On Dec 10th we went to EnterTRAINment Junction in Cincinnati. There was a patrol compettion which ever patrol found the most objects in there scavenger hunt won! they also had a fun house area where you could go through a mirrior maze or a black hole the owner let us go behind the scenes well actually in the scences! we got to got into the coney island area and see all the electronics and how everything worked at the end I think everyone had a great time.
