We will be doing the NRA shotgun certification at the 10/23/14 troop meeting. Only those who have signed up may take this class. Those Scouts who have not paid for the class materials will have to pay for them at this meeting ( $8). The camp-out is only Friday night - we will depart Saturday evening. No patrol cooking due to the number of scouts that will be attending. Mr. Haberberger is the grub-master for the weekend. Please pay your $15 grub money to him. Please bring your own shotgun shells if you didn't pay Mr. Boyer to pick some up for you. They should say something like "target load" on the box. If you have questions about purchasing shells please ask Mr. Boyer prior to purchasing your own. The shooting campout will be held at the Bench Rest Rifle club in Wright City.

Our Court of Honor will be held on March 27. The World Bird Sanctuary will be bringing an Eagle to this Court of Honor.
