Each Patrol is responsible for their own food purchase, stove, cooking pots, utensils, and cleanup.

Bring ideas to the next meeting for skills you want to develop: Map and Compass, Fire-Building, First Aid, 5-Mile Hike, etc.

Holiday Party: White elephant gift exchange and Class B uniform. 

We will be having a little party at tonights meeting. If you have an ugly sweater – feel free to wear it in lieu of your class A shirt.

White elephant is when you exchange gifts of $5 or less with other Scouts it can be anything, just not worth any real value.

You can be as creative as you want (as long as it is within the spirit of the Scout Oath and Law).

You have to bring a gift to take a gift.
