For Tuesday, Aug 2nd’s meeting (only this date), we will meet in the Fire Station #18 community room from 7-8:30 pm. This is due to carpet cleaning at WUMC. The fire station is located at 6830 Hadler Vw, Colorado Springs, CO, 80919, just behind the Walgreens at Centennial and Flying W Ranch Rd. It is only about 1 block from WUMC. Walk into the fire station and the first thing you’ll see is the community room.
At the meeting we will hold troop elections to fill positions for the next six months. We will elect a Senior Patrol Leader, who will then appoint an ASPL and his staff. We will also elect 2 patrol leaders. Please come prepared to run for a position, especially if you are 1st class or above as a leadership position is required for rank advancement!
Following elections we will continue planning for next weekend’s outdoor activities. For younger Scouts we have a campout Aug 5-7 (Friday evening to Sunday early afternoon) at John Wesley Ranch (adjacent to Mueller State Park near Divide, CO). This campout is $25 which will cover all food and camping fees. For older Scouts we will continue to plan the Lost Creek Loop Backpacking Trip for Aug 4-7 (Thursday 7 am meet at WUMC, return Sunday afternoon time TBD). The cost for this trip is $20 which covers gas, parking fees, and incidentals (Each Scout is responsible for bringing their own food for this trip). Every Scout Parent will need to sign a waiver and pay for these activities (cash, check to Troop 287, or Scout Funds if available) at Tuesday’s meeting.
See you at the Fire Station!
