 TROOP 71 HOLIDAY PARTY!   7:00 pm - 9:00 pm  
  • Retro theme Holiday Party with games from the past -- knock/table hockey, Nintendo, board games, ping pong and many others!  This "battery-free" setting - the brainchild of George Cox - is always a blast.  We may also show a holiday movie.
  • Like prior years, we ask each Scout attending to bring a beverage and/or treat for everyone to share - e.g. large bottle of soda, large bag of chips, cookies, cake, holiday goodies, etc., or preferably a sampling of something more substantial so as to avoid an excessive amount of sweets.  Feel free to embrace diversity with some home-cooked, favorite family or cultural dishes. (No peanuts or tree nuts please.)
  • Class A uniforms required (uniform inspection beforehand)
  • Webelos from Packs 3 and 101 will be our guests.

Patrol Meetings should always include a discussion of important issues learned at the PLC and figuring out what activities/skills etc the Patrol will cover, and how, for its upcoming Troop meeting responsibilities.  The Patrol Leader must report this information to the Senior Patrol Leader at the end of the Patrol meeting for planning purposes.
