Summer Uniform season has begun & ALL are invited to participate in Monday's hike to DQ

Hi, all. A couple of clarifying points on Monday's Troop meeting activity. Reminder, we are gathering to leave from St. Odilia at 6:30, NOT our normal 7pm. So please arrive early.
1. ALL Scouts, Parents and Siblings are invited to join us on the hike to DQ, not just those planning to attend the South Dakota trip. Any Scouts not attending the campout can pack a backpack in solidarity with their fellow Scouts or they can just hike along with the group. It is a good exercise to prepare for future hiking and backpacking actives.
2. Monday's meeting kicks off the summer season for Troop meetings, meaning Class B shirts can be worn in place of the Class A Tan shirt, now through Labor Day. (If you are scheduling a Board of Review at a meeting in the Summer, the Class A should be worn) If you are in need of a larger Class B shirt, they can be purchased for $7 or we have some used shirts to give out. If your Scout has outgrown their shirt and does not have a younger sibling, we welcome donations to be able to hand down to younger scouts.

Reminders from the original Hiking activity email:
- If you have hiking boots you've outgrown and are willing to donate, please being them
- TENTS: We need ALL Troop tents to be cleaned and returned ASAP. Troop Tent instructions and the check in form can be found at
- If you have a hiking backpack to loan to others taking the trip to SD, please bring it

From our SD Camp SPL - Phoenix Mordick:


For our Troop meeting this coming Monday, we will be gathering at 6:30 and our activity will be a hike to dairy queen! We plan to be back to St. O's at eight thirty. Please bring money to make your own purchase at dairy queen.
Scouts should Pack a backpack like you are going on an overnight hike, using the packing list below and the ten essentials from the Scout Handbook or at

The hike will be around three miles in all. I would suggest you come early so we can prepare before the hike.
