Weekly Meeting 12-12-2016

Thursday, December 15th, 2016

We started our meeting in the usual way. We recite the Pledge of Allegiance, The Scout Oath, and The Scout Law. Then, our Senior Patrol Leader tells everyone the plan for the meeting.

We went over the plan for the upcoming Klondike Derby at Camp Manatoc. The theme this year is “Mad Max, Flurry Road”. We will build a sled for different competitions at camp.

We also reviewed our skills for winter camping. We reviewed first aid for frostbite and hypothermia. We went over proper prior planning to ensure we have all the equipment and gear to make sure we are warm and safe.

Finally, we played a game that helped us practice our knot tying. Each patrol tied short pieces of rope together and used them to “rescue” other members of our troop. The knots we used were mostly square knots and the bowline.
