As summer turns to Fall, we entering a time of new beginnings for the Troop.
Justin Gartner will be serving as Senior Patrol Leader with the support of the
rest of youth leadership team. I am also stepping in as Scoutmaster. So first,
I would like to thank Dave Gartner for his tremendous dedication guiding the
Troop for the last two years. I hope that I can live up to his example.
September was a time for recognizing our achievements at Family Night. Coming
off of a busy summer camp, you all earned a slew of merit badges and awards. So,
give yourselves a pat on the back and start planning the next leg in your
We have a lot to look forward to in October. Cub-O-Ree is a few weeks away, and
we have a great gateway and activity planned. That's good, because we have the
Bradbury Cup to defend! The theme is "Western", and we encourage everyone to
dress the part. So, bring your spurs and ten gallon hat, partner.
Later in the month, we'll be going to Knoebels and camping at Hickory Run State
Park. This is a perfect opportunity for a fun, relaxing trip in the cool October
weather. Fall is my favorite time for camping, and it doesn't get much better
than eating a deep fried Oreo in line for a wild ride on a wooden coaster.
So sign up early and often!
