I know all you senior Scouts have been eye balling your parent's older car, Grandpa's car, or that hot rod down the street for your first car. Many of you will turn 15.5 yrs of age for your learners' permit well before earning Eagle Scout. Some of you are already driving Mom and Dad's car to scout meetings, but how many of you know how to change radiator fluid, add correct tire pressure, or how to change a flat tire on an uneven road with that little road jack in the trunk?

Summer Camp Sign Ups Now Open

Posted on Dec 12 2013 - 6:46am

Snow, Yes!  Summer Camp Sign-Up, Yes!


Believe it or not, it is time once again to sign up for summer camp.  Last year we had almost 40 scouts and 7 adults leaders attend one of the two summer camps we attended.  This year the camp selected should be a big draw as the Blue Ridge Scout Reservation camps offer unique programs that will appeal to scouts of all ages and ranks.

Hi Folks,

Please remember, this week's Troop Meeting will be out at the Bluemont Fair parking lot where we will be lashing together and setting up the Troop Tower and working on the parking lot layout. Wear your Class B and bring work gloves if you have them.
Please arrive at 6:00 PM as we will need as much daylight as possible to make sure we get the tasks completed, we will be there till dark or when we are done, whichever is first.

The entrance to the parking area is on Snickersville Turnpike, next to Whitehall Estate Lane. Here is a link to the location on Google maps:

Thurs. Sept 5, 7PM at Boulder Crest Retreat for Military and Veteran Wellness

Posted on Sep 12 2013 - 3:47pm
Hi Folks,
Please remember that for THIS week's Troop meeting (Thursday night Sept 5, starting at 7PM) we will be setting up the parking field in preparation for the Boulder Crest Retreat for Military and Veteran Wellness grand opening.We'll put up signs, as well as reflectors and bright tape, and separate entrance and exit-ways. If they are ready, and we have time, we can certainly do more, like setting up tables and chairs if the 100x40 tent is up by that time. 

If we finish the work early, we may finish the meeting in their main Lodge.
