[Troop222All] Scoutmaster Updates: October 7, 2013

Last May I lost my wooden pen, I loaned to a scout at our Flood Park meeting and never got it back.  If there is a strange wooden pen in your hose (that happens to have my name on it) please bring it back, it has sentimental value to me.
Norther Tier Signups Open
We have an opportunity to go to Northern Tier this June for a 100 mile canoe trip.  But we must get at least 4 adults and 8 scouts to signup and commit to going before the Oct. 14th Parent meeting. My original email is here:  http://t222.org/troop222all-possible-opportunity-to-go-to-northern-tier-62214-7114/  If we don’t get enough of a commitment from the Troop then we will cancel this event.
