Weekend Patrol Box #16

Great way to begin the weekend!  

One of our patrols has earned the National Honor Patrol Award, which they will receive at our Court of Honor next weekend.  They worked on it as a patrol, with little interference from the adults.  It is a great example to set for our new patrol of former Webelos, the Bloody Sharks.

Here are a few spices to enjoy with your Memorial Day Weekend patrol box:

  1. The Best Patrols from Scouting magazine.  Includes National Honor Patrol requirements.
  2. Prone to blisters when hiking?  Everything you wanted to know about taping them.
  3. Finally, it's back--Merit Badge of the Week:  Automotive Maintenance
  4. Great series on Webelos to Troop conversion at The Trainer's Corner.
  5. Immersion training for the New Scout Patrol--part 1, part 2 and part 3.
  6. Webelos Scout, not Webelos--got it.  Thanks KISMIF.
  7. Arbor Day Foundation--BSA tree for the 100th Anniversary.  You buy one, and another will be planted in the "newly created Boy Scouts of America Centennial Forest" for each tree you purchase.
  8. Be a BSA Speaker--easy to do, and I'm all signed up.  Anyone need a speaker?
  9. Name that council! Each week, BSA's Cracker Barrel blog posts a council shoulder patch with the words blocked out for you to try and figure out.  Patch hounds will probably know, and interesting for the rest of us.
  10. In honor of Memorial Day--everything you always wanted to know about it.

How will your troop or pack spend the Memorial Day weekend?  Anything exciting?  Share your plans with us in the comments.
