Boy Scout Troop 44



February, 2005
Vol. 10 Issue 2


The last campout that the troop had was a hiking campout at Table Rock. I myself was able to attend and to tell the truth, it was pretty fun. Although I did not get to go on the overnight hiking trip, I was still content on the 4.5 hour hike we did during the day. I wasn't there, but I heard the older boys on the overnight campout had a blast. Just because they ran out of water on the second day didn't mean that they didn't have fun. That night they were around the campfire telling tails of what had happened on the trail. I'm not sure about all of it because, like many boys, there seemed to be some larger than life in their stories. This campout was very fun and I can't wait until next year.


Remember that February 6 is SCOUT SUNDAY. The Troop will participating in a Rechartering service with St. James Episcopal Church. All Scouts are request to attend, if possible. Be in FULL class "A" uniforms. Please arrive at the New Family Life Center no later than 10:15, for the 10:30 AM service. The Troop will sit together and will be recognized during the rechartering of the Troop. Please make every effort to attend, this is one opportunity to show the church how much we appreciate their support.
