Weekend Patrol Box #17

Great thing about a short holiday week is how quickly the weekend comes around again!

We have our troop's first Eagle Court of Honor this Saturday, followed by a couple of hours working at Camp Rock Enon.  Free lunch at CRE, so not too much cooking to do though!

There will still be some time for rummaging around in the patrol box, looking for goodies to share and enjoy.

Enjoy the weekend!
  1. Great American Backyard Campout--Cub Scouts, Boy Scouts, Venturers, Scouters and families can all help make this an annual event at your house!
  2. Camping sale at ends Sunday, 31 MAY:
  3. Cub Scout friendly project (Gardening merit badge, too):  How to grow corn in a container
  4. The Phantom Torso Returns--OK, definitely a Space Exploration merit badge topic from NASA.
  5. American Red Cross is having an event:  01-07 JUN is National CPR/AED Awareness Week.  Local Red Cross organizations are sponsoring events.
  6. Minnesota's Anthony Thomas is Eagle Scout #2,000,000.  Congratulations!
  7. Popsticks--anyone have one?  I have one coming and I'll report on it here.  Appears to be a neat gadget and could save a lot of trees from "marshmallow terror".
  8. New Scouter blog with advice on using Twitter. (Try @scoutsigns to see!)
  9. Advice on overnight camp:  is your child ready?
  10. Scouting News has information on a pilot program to use jetskis with Boy Scouts in the Blue Ridge Mountain Council.  Please don't tell my son...
