The Mayflower Marathon collects food donations for 57 hours straight on November 20, 21, & 22. Sometime in this period, we will assist with sorting and boxing non-perishables … we just haven’t figured out when yet . All of this food goes to benefit the Foodbank of the Virginia Peninsula. POC is the Scoutmaster.
Good Morning Troop 11 !!!!!
That’s right folks, no sooner do you get your tent dry from the last outing and it is time to sign up for the next one. This next trip will be one of the best of the year. It is a major orienteering event put on by the Quantico Orienteering Club for the Boy Scouts of America. I am not sure how many years this event has been going on, but I can tell you that I competed in it when I was in scouts. In case you are unfamiliar, orienteering is the navigation through the woods using map and compass. The nice thing about this event is that there are divisions for all ages and experience levels, so everyone can enjoy.
It is about a 5 hour drive to get there, so we will leave as soon as possible on Friday 11/6. We will travel in Class A and all scouts should plan to wear Class B during the event on Saturday. All scouts will need to have had dinner on Friday and have money to buy lunch on the way home Sunday. Also, as always, we are looking for adults who like to attend the outing. This is a camping trip, so the beds might not be so great but the food will be excellent!
PS-Just as a reminder of troop policy. Money should never be a reason to not attend an outing. If your son would like to attend an outing, but funds are tight, please contact myself or Mr. Barnes and we will handle it.
This is the new Troop 11 Website. Hopefully, this will make information much easier to locate, and make it much easier to update, so it will be current. We are presently under construction, so bear with us for a few days. EXCUSE OUR DUST!
Yours in Scouting,
