I cannot go, But if any adults and scouts are wanting to go, he will feed the guys Saturday and probably offer up a fun activity. Scouts and Adults that are interested please see me before the meeting. There is also an option of camping.

Council is going to try and roll out the camp card program way earlier this year. They are asking for help. If you know a business that might be interested in being on the card please contact Jason Setser @

I didn't think about sending it out before the summer camp break. Anyway the signup form for the July campout is clickable on the calendar. We will be going to a local lake and camping, canoeing and fishing. We will try to complete the fishing merit badge also. The worksheet for that badge is Scouts will need that worksheet, also if the Scouts could practice those knots on the worksheet that will speed up that part of earning the badge. Scouts will need tents and standard dump camping equipment, chairs, swimtrunks, water shoes sunscreen and bug spray. They will cook as Patrols. The cost is $15 to cover food. Gas donations to the drivers are always appreciated.

Fish fry was a success!

Thanks to everyone's efforts we earned over $700 for the boys of Troop 165 with today's fish fry- woohoo!  We appreciate everyone in the community that came out and supported the scouts today. 

When you see them be sure and thank the following people:  Tanya for keeping things organized and straight, Kim for the fish preparation, Bo and Bill for all the cooking, Cheryl, Chris, Mary Beth, and Susan for taking care of the front and filling in where needed, the boys that helped serve, run, and clean up, and Doug for all that he does.  Good job!
