9/29:  We'll be using an off-week to meet at the school and make our Camporee Mega Gateway plans.  We'll have poles there and we'll be able to make a 'practice gateway'.  This year Camporee Committee says that two tripods and pole across the top ISN'T a Mega Gateway.  So, put your thinking caps on and come up with some ideas!

10/3:  Range Day at Maywood Rod and Gun Club!  Don't forget to sign up on the Calendar

10/6:  First Troop Meeting for October!  Let's plan Camporee!
