Patrol C Gear Check | Patrol A and D First Aid
This meeting is a gear check for the closely upcoming patrol C trip. In order for us to have a safe and fun winter camping experience, passing this gear check is required to go on the trip, as scouts will be cold and miserable without the proper gear. This means that if a you (a scout) forget a piece of gear at your house you will have to call home and have your parents come and drop it off. This generally makes for unhappy parents, so bring all the gear on the gear list. This list has been customized for this trip, it is very good and accurate. Bring all the gear on the list and only the gear on the list.
After passing your gear check, packs will be stored in the troop room until the trip. You will not have access to your pack until the trip.
Finally, the end time of this meeting is 9:30, but we will go until everyone has completed their gear check, so if you as a scout have not completed your gear check at 9:30 we will expect you to stay until it's completed. Otherwise, scouts may leave as they complete their gear check.
If you have any questions about the trip or the gear list contact your patrol leader. They will be happy to help you with your problems, or direct you to an adult that can help you. It's better to ask questions in advance.
Patrols A and D
While patrol C are working through their gear checks, Patrols A and D will get some extra attention doing first aid. The first aid will include lots of fake blood, and is an invaluable skill. Getting some direct patrol attention will allow for good first aid teaching.
What an exciting and packed meeting! If you came to the last webelos welcome meeting, then you should not come to this one. It is the same. This is our introductory webelos meeting. Webelos will come and view the troop 8 slideshow, and then talk with current scouts about the troop and get and general overview of what we do in the troop. (Don't worry, it won't be boring, we'll bore your parents later.) After that you will be get to be part of our meeting, likely getting the play victim for our first aid scenario (there will be fake blood).
