Upcoming events!

We have several things coming up, and some changes coming from what we had previously spoken about. First up! We will be working on earning the Solar Eclipse Patch for the solar Eclipse on August 21st. The meeting on the 14th will be focused on what an eclipse is, how to view it safely, and what you need to do in order to earn the patch. The meeting on the 21st will wrap this up, and we will talk about what being a good citizen is.

We have a Citizenship in the X merit badge clinic on the 20th at the church, this is an opportunity to earn most of the requirements for all three Citizenship merit badges which are required for Eagle. I hope to see you all there!

The group backpack fitting at REI had to be cancelled, in order to facilitate a group fitting they require a large deposit for each individual. Please try and swing by an REI on your own time to be measured and fitted for a backpack before September 11th.

September 4th there will be a meeting at the church, we will be starting off the Hiking and Backpacking blocks for September and October. Class A uniforms are required starting on September 4th.

On September 11th please bring your backpacking backpacks if you have them, and we will go over fit and packing of a pack.

Remember to be going outside and working on your hiking conditioning! Reavis Ranch is coming! You will need to have some hiking under your belt to enjoy this experience.
