Getting the scouts outside sure makes for a more energetic troop meeting! The SPL had his plan all laid out with skills, patrol time, and troop game all outsite. The weather cooperated, and there was a lot of noisy activity so I'd say it was a success.
The scouts leading the knots, lashing, and physical skills activities got their ropes, spars, and other materials together beforehand. The young scout in charge of the Walking on Mars activity did a most excellent job explaining the game - even though it quickly devolved into chaos. :-)
Lots of scouts talked to me about pursusing the Cooking requirements for rank advancement this weekend. There should be some good meals prepared, I think. I'd just love some clear skies so First Class #1 can be done also - directions at day and night without a compass.
