At our meeting on Monday we talked about cold weather camping in addition to having some fun with skits!

Mr. B showed the Scouts how to prepare for colder weather ahead - WWW - Wicking-Warm-Wind - these are the three layers that will help you stay warm in all kinds of weather. Wicking = non-cotton shirt, Warm = hoodie, fleece or another warm layer, Wind = an outer layer with some wind blocking ability - windbreaker, winter coat, etc. Same goes for bottom layers (long wicking pants, fleece pants, outer layer for wind could be snow pants or wind/rain pants)

Sleeping systems need to be looked at too - a warm fleece blanket inside your sleeping bag will keep you warm 10+ degrees colder than your sleeping bag alone!

If your gear didn't work well for blackwell (maybe you weren't warm enough, or didn't have enough layers) now is the time to start thinking about Turkey! Historically, lows that weekend are 43! So think about a sleeping bag liner, warm socks, hats, gloves, layers layers layers! It's always easier to pack over a long period of time when you're not rushed.

We got fresh cranberries straight from the farm before Ocean Spray did! We are lucky enough to have Jonathan's extended family own a cranberry farm and cranfest was this past weekend where they harvested these for us!

We will all get to enjoy these fresh cranberries at our Turkey Campout!!

What an awesome event! Thanks to the Scouts and families that got up early and helped this morning! We made history helping with the first bike race in Bartlett! What a great way to earn service hours! We overheard our volunteer manager saying how great it was working with Boy Scouts - we think so too! #kickstandclassic
