Help Needed

The Middleboro Historical Association has once again asked if our Troop can assist them with their annual Ice Cream Sundae Social Fundraiser. It will be on Sunday, July 21st at the museum grounds (next to Pierce Playground) They will need help at the beginning to set up tents, tables and chairs, later druing the event to help with games with the kids, and then finally afterwards to help break down. You can help at just one of those times or all 3 if you're able. I don't have the exact times yet, but probably set up will be early, the event goes on in the afternoon. Please, I would like to see some new faces helping this year, since we have so many new scouts!

I will be thee doing twisty balloons, but will be bringing some games for the kids. Any scout (or family members as well!) who can help please contact me directly at 508-496-8654. Thanks in advance, and I believe those who help can get a free sundae.
Sincerely, Mike McKeon
ASM Troop 20

Our Camping Role Model

Our Camping role model of what to do after a great Campout

As you can see from the photo Connor has built the tent at home to allow it to dry out after the Campout
While doing so he has also checked
- to make sure the were no rips or tears in the tent or fly
- all the poles were in good shape with no broken ends or snapped elastics
- all the zippers on the tent doors and windows were in proper working order
- he had all the tent pegs (how many are needed will be the Court of Honor question)
- the tent bag, pole bag, and tent peg bags all had the same tent identification number as the tent
- all the leaves, pine needles and dirt were removed from the interior of the tent
Any problems he would have noted on paper and placed in the top of the tent bag to be brought to the troop meeting the following Thursday along with the dry and properly folded ground cloth.
The Quartermaster will keep a record of any repairs need from this information so no scout goes on a campout with a broken tent.
These simple steps will keep our Camping gear in Tip Top shape and help the Quartermaster do his job.
