    In conjunction with Chapel Hill, we are having a food drive to collect Non-perishable food products for distribution through the Skyline Food Pantry.   We challenged every Scout to bring a food item to the next Troop meeting.   The Patrol with the most food will win a Desert prize and a ribbon for their Patrol flag.   The Pantry has a shopping list that they are in need of.

    Shopping List:

    canned meats
    canned fruits
    peanut butter
    powdered milk
    canned soups
    canned peas

    Once again, the Scouts needs to bring them to the next Troop meeting.

    For questions please contact Mr. Ledford.

    Turkey Cookout Woodcutting

    chainsaw
    As you know, our annual Turkey Cookout is a long-time troop tradition held in early November. And, as you probably also know, it takes a LOT of firewood to pit-cook all the turkeys.
    Somebody has to cut all that wood, and that somebody is US.
    We are planning two woodcutting days, both Sunday afternoons: Aug. 11 and 25.
    Here’s what we need:
    • Chain saws
    • Log splitter(s)
    • Hand saws
    • Pickup trucks
    • Flatbed trailers
    • Adults who can use the above
    • Scouts who can work hard
    If you can help one or both days, please call or email Mr. Bryant.

    This class will be open to all Scouts that need the class but priority will be given to older Scouts if the class becomes too full.  Everyone who has not started this class previously should count on taking this class if at all possible. He will also need a couple of adults to assist as this class is usually very full.

    If you intend on being there please email Mr. Cranford and let him know as he will need to make copies of the materials needed.  Everyone will need to get a copy of the NEW color merit badge book from the Scout shop and read it before the class.You can view the requirements at:  http://meritbadge.org/wiki/index.php/Camping
