Core Skills Night 1


After our hiatus, Troop 8 is back, and better than ever! We'll be kicking off the fall season with a series of core skills nights, getting you up to par so you can help your patrol on campouts. Tonight, we have the activities of...

Core Skills Night 1



PLE-how to pack a pack

PLF-how to pack a pack

PLG-how to pack a pack

Patrols A and D will be embarking on an epic journey to learn how to treat cuts, which will definitely be necessary considering the fondness for knives in those patrols. 

Patrol E,F, and G will be learning how to pack a pack, so when they go backpacking the patrol leader doesn't have to carry all of the gear necause of a purported 'lack of space' in packs. Members of these patrols would do well to bring some weekend backpacking gear (sleeping bag, pad, fleece, large hadron collider) and their assigned/owned pack, in order to fully illustrate the proper method of utilising such devices (aka if you don't bring it you have to do it with someone else's gear, which isn't very fun, informative, or honorable)


So, we hope to see you tonight and in the coming weeks,as we definitely have a lot planned. Because we have a lot to get through, we would like to ask that all scouts show up promptly at 7:20, so we can get through it all. Again that is at 7:20, please do not arrive before 7:00.
