This is your chance to help us plan the business side of the troop, and to get first-hand news of upcoming opportunities. We need your ideas and expertise! Please join us in our efforts to make Troop 79 great, and to give our boys every opportunity to advance and succeed in scouting.

CtSLC Fall Cleanup Day at the church – Oct. 18 8:00am - noon

If you are not going on the campout this weekend, then please try to donate some time on Saturday morning, to represent our Troop and help our charter organization. There will be donuts and coffee. Susan Hanfland will be leading this, and will send out a reminder later this week. Remember to sign-in so that we can give you service credit. Wear RED Class B T-shirt, so that our church can spot us easily as Troop scouts.

Campout – Special Cooking – Oct. 17-19

So far we have 24 scouts and 5 adults attending the Cooking Campout at Camp Wisdom. There is still time and still room to join us, but you need contact me as soon as possible so that I can notify the buyers of any additions. This will be a fun hangout campout, with plenty of time to prep for each meal, so this is the time to bring out those more complicate recipes. Last Monday, each patrol drew themes or restaurants from the special camping hat. Some of the restaurants or themes were “IHOP, Taco Bell, Cracker Barrel, Italian, Chinese, French...”. Each meal could have a different theme. I’ve already heard some interesting recipes including chicken tortellini, beef stroganoff, and crème brulee. Yes... Mr. E. has a cooking torch. Yum!!!
