Troop 282 Families,

Excited to go camping at Pine Mountain, stay up late and gaze at the stars! Final preparations on the Astronomy Merit badge this week as well as making sure that tent partners are paired and menus finalized. Plan on meeting at 5:30 and departing very quickly, it is a bit of a drive.

I have seen a lot of athletic shorts being worn to troop meeting recently. I wanted to remind everyone that we have a dress code that does not allow those to be worn. Thanks for taking care not to wear them to troop or outings.

Very pleased to the Troop 282 family know that we have a newly signed charter with One Love Church. For the future we will continue to meet at First Baptist Church, however the plan is to transition to the new location in the future. We will keep everyone informed via email and announcements at Troop meetings.

Lastly, Troop 282 have been asked to help with a large flag at the first Oregon Ducks home game. I have agreed to have 20 Scouts and Scouters be in attendance and help. Scouts and Scouters will need to have a Boy Scout Shirt (all patches correct), Troop 282 neckerchief, Troop 282 slide and wear appropriate pants (no athletic shorts) and closed toe shoes. They will have a mandatory practice session and then of course the time spent on game day. There is a bonus, each participant will receive 2 tickets for each participant to go to the game. At this point I am not prepared to have a sign up. I want to make sure I have all the final details so that each family can make sure they can attend the practice session and the game. Stay tuned for more details.

See you at Troop this week!
