Our meeting tonight brought us two new members from Pack 185. Both boys joined making our official number "5". We are off to a small but confident start. Tonight the Troop learned more about hiking preparations and the type of pack used for day hikes and the gear needed for a day hike. The scouts also tested their sense of smell tonight in a fun activity. It was a busy and fun night. More about the patrol concept was explained in preparation for a patrol leader election and the forming of the troops first official patrol.
