Join Mr. Fishback for a weekend of backpacking on the Appalacihian Trail in Virginia.

The first day we will hike around 5 miles to our camping destination, followed by a one mile hike back to the cars Sunday morning. For more information see Mr. Fishback.

For the first session, be prepared to identify a top golfer and discuss his/her achievements. no golf clubs are required for the first session. The second (requirement 7) and third part (requirement 8) will be covered at a location and time yet to be determined. Contact Mr. Flanery for more information.

For scouts interested in the astronomy merit badge, a session was held on Oct. 12. The next session will be held at 6pm in the scout room on October 26. We will continue working on requirements 1-3, 4b, 4d, 5, 7c, 7d and 8. Requirements 4a, 4c, 6, 7b and 9 require the scout to produce diagrams and/or write a brief report. Scouts who attended the astronomy session on the flight deck of the Yorktown last fall have met requirement 9. It is not too late to get started on the merit badge, so if you are interested, join us on the 26th. Contact Mr. Flanery for more information.

Communications Merit Badge
Mr. Konvicka will have a class for the Communications Merit Badge beginning Tuesday, Sept. 21, at 6pm. This is an Eagle-required merit badge. Although the requirements are not difficult, there are a lot of them and they require a certain amount of preparation.
