Scouts of the lighning patrol worked some more on Tenderfoot requirements as a patrol. Everyone seems to be working hard and making progress. The patrol also worked on some first aid related to the rank and meritbadge. Very busy meeting. When we return from Thanksgiving some of the scouts will be ready for a Scoutmaster Conference and Board of Review.
Troop 931 and members of the Lightning Patrol had a good time this past weekend at Camp Scouthaven. Although light in numbers we made up for it with some excellent skill building. The patrol did a fine job preparing for the campout in terms of menu planning and duty roster as well as their cooking skills. The scouts are really getting the hang of this whole scouting thing as they demonstrated better skills in tent pitching, cooking and general preparedness. The corn dogs that the patrol tried to make in was a very audatious challenge for sure but they turned out fairly well for the first time. I give them a lot of credit! The whole troop took a hike to the lake on top of the hill and learned some map and compass skills along the way.
Again the Lightning Patrol worked on more First Aid requirements. We coverd the various first aid situations from the Tenderfoot Rank and completed requirement 2a, b, c, d. Those scouts that did not have their first aid kits tonight can bring them to the camp out this weekend for approval or to next weeks meeting.
Next weeks meeting will be our last for the month of November as the following week is Thanksgiving. scouts are encoura
This month the scouts started working on First Aid skills toward their rank advancement and Fist Aid Merit Badge. Scouts are to bring in a first aid kit that they would use at home or on a camp out to comlete a requirement for the MB.
The patrol will also be going to Scouthaven next weekend for a troop/patrol campout. Scouts are reminded to be prepared for the weather, wet and cold!
