Monday’s meeting, August 19, will continue our backpacking theme and preparation for the Shining Rock trip September 1-3.
If you have a backpacking stove such as a Whisper Lite, please bring it so we can have as many scouts practicing on the stoves as possible.
I would ask that our older scouts be prepared to lead a discussion on the different types of backpacking stoves and their pros and cons. They need to include how to choose a cooking area at our campsite ala the BEAR-muda triangle
as well as touching on Leave No Trace with regard to stoves and backpack cooking.
I will ask one older scout to start our meeting with a discussion on what it means to be courteous.
We will plan our meals for the Shining Rock trip.
Lastly, we will elect a new senior patrol leader. I want the PLC to meet after electing the SPL before we elect new patrol leaders. Those of you who expressed interest in being the SPL back in May, please let me know if you are still interested and come to the meeting prepared to convince your peers to vote for you.
