Tonight was a good. We had our Charter Org Rep on hand, the President of SW Kiwanis and our new Unit Commissioner. Who is also the Ast Scoutmaster for Troop 221. I think she got the boys talking about the 20 mile hike they just went on and the bike ride this weekend. Very cool. (I did put her on the spot, but she will get used to it.;) )
We had a quick 20 minute Parent meeting to see how we are doing, where we want to go and asking them for help. I wanted to have it so we could get feedback and also let them know our plans. I think the message and feedback worked.
We played two games. One was paper airplanes thrown for distance, into buckets far away and hula hoops down the basketball court. The boys then had to blindfold themselves and have another person walk them from one side of the gym to the other. It was a game of trust.
Pictured above is Grampa Sam. He is the Den Leader’s Dad and really helps out a lot with the boys. The boys worked on Knots at the last Den meeting. This was their den demostration of knots.
The Tigers were also veery active this past month. The one cool thing is that they did a skit!
Both of the Webelos Dens were also very active, but I did not get any photos of them. They are working through a lot of pins, earning many achviements.
The one downside of the meeting tonight is that I really had to clamp down a couple of times on the talking and disruptions. It actually got really bad when I tried to do the Circle of Light. In which when I read over the weekend from the Lions-Weblos 1954 Handbook, that it means Friendship, it just did not work out. The boys and parents did do the Circle several meetings ago as a pack. I have also done it with every Den except the Webelos.
Guess we are back to singing next month. Which finally, SKIT TIME. Yup, I am going to do one. A ceremony and I am going to bring the Den Leaders with me.
I have 29 days…….
