Tonight’s meeting will be about backpacking (the August theme). We will take some time to discuss monthly themes for the coming year. We will practice the taut line hitch (see also). And we will practice setting up backpacking tarps.
Our August outing will fall on Labor Day Weekend (yes, technically that is September), to Shining Rock. Crew 4 will also be going to Shining Rock so we will likely make this a cooperative trip similar to our last trip to Cumberland Gap.
Troop 147 meets at West Hills Baptist Church on 409 N Winston Rd, Knoxville, TN 37909 (map) from 7pm to 8:30pm on Mondays. We welcome visitor who want to learn more about Scouting and how Troop 147 operates. Feel free to drop in, however, if you email firstname.lastname@example.org or email@example.com ahead of time, we can better prepare for your visit.
