The Klondike is a great test and learning experience. It will be cold but you will be prepared. This weekend will be a good chance to see how well you have learned as you put those scout skills into practice. For example, fire-building, knots, orienteering, lashings, and first aid. Our troop has risen to this challenge and we take pride in our teamwork and leadership. This weekend, remember to be a good leader you also have to be a good follower. Our scout law says to be obedient and we can put that into practice for each of the stations that you will be doing at the Klondike. Each station we will put forth our most skilled scout to help lead the others. This is known as situational leadership and it will take some coordination and help from all to be successful.
Work together, communicate and for those leaders, be loud, clear and concise. For those obeying, listen (not talk), and follow the lead of others. Use the scout law as our guideline.
This month will be a short and busy. Klondike, one Troop meeting, Tubing at Nashoba, winter break, and then our Court of Honor.
Please arrange a Scoutmaster conference if you need one.
