What a wonderful Blackfoot Scouting weekend. Yes, we had a few rain showers on Saturday afternoon, but nothing dampened the spirit of our 5 patrols.
Our Scoutmaster definitely enjoyed his tea ...

An Arctic Blast it was ...

Despite freezing temperatures we had a great weekend at the Chief Logan Reservation, learning Outdoor Skills at 10 stations. The sparkle of a campfire program and a moving flag retirement ceremony ended the very looooong day.

Web Challenge 2

posted Mar 20, 2011, 10:09 AM by Black Foot   [ updated Mar 20, 2011, 10:17 AM ]

Ready for a new Web Challenge?
Most of you go the first one correct. Some just did not recognize Sam Hite our Asst. Scoutmaster for Programs and Ceremonies.
Here's the Web Challenge for this week:
Find 3 Scouting related websites that you find most useful, valuable or interesting. They can't be on the Links page.
Email the URLs to the webmaster!
This is a patrol activity. No need for everyone in your patrol to complete it separately, although you may add more websites than 3, if you like.

Session 2 - Indoor Training Completed

posted Mar 20, 2011, 10:02 AM by Black Foot

As our Course Director, Jim Dvorsky, pointed out yesterday afternoon, everyone who completed session 2 also completed Scoutmaster leader specific training.
Now it's time to head outdoors to the Chief Logan Scout Reservation to brush up on Outdoor Skills.
Session 3 starts next Saturday with a full day of learning outdoor skills. This will be a looooong day. Dress for the weather, as you will be outdoors the whole day.
Here are the correct directions to the Chief Logan Reservation. Don't trust your car GPS on the last few miles as you leave Route 35.
