Weekly Meeting 1-30-2017

Wednesday, February 8th, 2017

At this week’s meeting, we held elections for The Order of the Arrow (OA). The OA is the National Honor Society of the Boy Scouts of America. For more than 90 years, the Order of the Arrow has recognized Scouts and Scouters who best exemplify the Scout Oath and Law in their daily lives.

To be eligible, Scouts must meet certain minimum requirements. Then, worthy nominees are elected by their peers. This year, Troop 273 voted for 2 of our Scouts to the OA.

The remainder of our meeting was spent working on our tickets for our “Lazy Bones” campout. During Lazy Bones, We stay in a nice warm cabin and play video games, board games, go on hikes, and celebrate the past year together. Before anyone can attend Lazy Bones, they must complete a ticket. The ticket is used to ensure the Scouts have mastered certain basic skills, retained foundational knowledge required of all Scouts, and are adequately prepared for the year ahead.
