Weekly Meeting 12-19-2016

Thursday, December 22nd, 2016

This week, we continued planning for the upcoming Klondike Derby. We reviewed what gear we all need to bring to keep us warm and dry. We also started going through our Patrol Boxes and inventorying our cooking gear.

The rest of the meeting was spent practicing our lashings. Lashing is using rope to join 2 things together, usually sticks or poles of some kind. Lashings can be used to build shelters, rope bridges and other useful things. Tonight, we made sleds. these types of sleds could be used to transport equipment or an injured person.

 

At the end of the meeting, we had a great time racing our sleds.
