When: Mar 26, 2023 3:00pm - 5:00pm
Where: Canyon Creek Presbyterian Church (Tenant Hall)
Event Details: 

We have much planned in place of this weeks Sunday Troop meeting.  In its place, we will begin with SPL election and leadership assignments beginning at 3:00pm.  The adults will be asked to participate in a Scoutmaster election at the same time the SPL election is happening.  At 3:30pm we will have a short Friends of Scouting presentation followed by our March Court of Honor where we will go through MB awards, advancements, swear in new leadership, transition of Committee Chair, and Scoutmaster minute.

We are asking that Scouts and Adults be present and on-time at 3:00pm so that we can get through all the activities in a timely manner as we only have the Church until 5:00pm and have quite a bit to get through.

The website for Ron Coleman Mining is:  https://colemanquartz.com/, attached waiver will need to be signed prior to departure for this campout for the activities at Ron Coleman Mining.
