Get your creative juces flowing. Tonight troop leadership would like to spend some time in our patrols creating designs for troop flags.

We will also be doing some prep work for the upcoming ski outing. If you have not signed up yet, please do so. It is importaint that we have a good idea of who will be attending so we can square away transportation and gear. Looks like there is already 6 that have commited. Link below.

See you all tonight!!!

Troop,

January 22nd we will be heading up the mountain in search of that snow that has seemed to elude us here on the front range thus far.

Mr. Anderson will be leading the charge up the mountain on what will be an awesome day of skiing or snowboarding. The plan is to meet up at the church at 6:30 am and head on out from there. The group will return once they have had their fill for the day and will reach out to parents when they leave the mountain.

We really need a good headcount on this and there are some things to do in preparation so don’t delay. If you are a snow sports family please know that all are welcome. Please sign up below.

All attendees will need to purchase lift tickets and have equipment prior to going.

If you don’t already have a Monarch Pass we strongly recommend you purchase lift tickets online at least 2 days in advance as there are huge cost savings. It’s $44 if you are 12 or under, $59 if you are 13-17, and $89 for us old timers.

Rentals are $44 at Monarch and you would have to take the time to check them out there. You can likely get a better deal at somewhere local like Christi Sports, or the MWR if you have access. Please shop around and comment below if you find any gems you would like to share.
It seems Mr. Anderson has found a rental deal at Epic Mountain Gear – Colorado Springs. Address: 2454 Montebello Square Drive, Colorado Springs, CO 80918. Phone: (719) 268-9522. Looks like they have a youth ski package for about $14 per day and you could pick it up from them the day prior after 3 pm.
Give them a ring!

Scouts,

After a well-deserved holiday break, it’s time to kick off the 2022 Scouting Adventure.

We have the first meeting of the year coming up Tuesday 1/11 7:00pm in the church.

Being the first meeting of the month we have a uniform inspection. Please dress in your finest Class A uniform. Yep, with all the hats, pants, sashes, etc…. and don’t forget those scout socks. Youth leadership will take a look and help you get all up to snuff. If you don’t have your new position patches we will make notes and try to get that all figured out.

We will also be discussing upcoming events, Summer Camp, Philmont, and so on.

Can’t wait to see you all.

Mr. Petree
