Hello Troop 281 Scouts and families,  

Our first February Troop meeting is this coming Tuesday night.  Scouts, wear your Class A uniform and bring your Scout handbook.  Arrive at GRDC by 6:45 pm to help set up and get ready for the meeting.  If you have a friend who’s interested in Scouting, invite him to a Troop meeting.  Not sure, ask!

Reduced Outing Fees

Good news! Troop 281’s scouts have done such a great job of fundraising that we can now lower the cost of each outing. For the rest of 2016, each outing will only cost $20 per scout and $10 per adult! With 9 overnight outings this year, that’s a savings of $90!

Scouting is an incredible value – only $20 for a full weekend of fun (and learning).

Way to go Troop 281.

We will work on the Camping merit badge, emphasizing requirements not covered for all Scouts at summer camp in 2015. Preparation = progress.


Scouts should update their camping record (back of their Scout Handbook) before the session. They should bring their Camping MB "blue card" to each session and be prepared to complete the necessary parts of the Camping merit badge workbook (https://www.meritbadge.org/wiki/images/a/ab/Camping.pdf). Contact Burt with questions. - Burt & Steve
