Troop Overnight April 1, 2 and 3, 2016

What a great overnight the troop had on April 1st, 2nd, and 3rd however you would not know it
was April on Friday night as the temp. dropped to below freezing and yes many got cold. I
guess you would say we were not prepared as the founder of scouting, good ole’ Baden Powell,
would have wanted us to be. Saturday was a great day, warm and sunny. Our patrols cooked
breakfast, lunch and dinner with many new menu items. After lunch, the troop had some patrol
competition with burn the string and a cake baking contest. Both of these events were great. As
you can see from the pictures, we have very good cake bakers. On Saturday evening, all the
patrols cooked great meals including hamburger stew, pulled pork sandwiches and pizza. Then
Saturday evening, the troop had a very good campfire with some new songs, new skits and
some great mind games by Mr. Copeland and Mr. Wyatt. On Sunday, the patrols and leaders
once again had some great breakfasts. The leaders had so much that we shared ours with the
entire troop, way to go Mr. Wyatt. The scouts worked great together cleaning up and breaking
down camp. We would like to thank Mr. Leabo and Justin Lee for the Troop church service.
The troop would like to thank all the scouts and leaders that came out on the overnight. Last but
not least the troop would like to thank Mr. Blann for pulling out the trailer and we would like to
thank Mr. Gramlich for driving the bus.
