Meetings

  • Place:
  • Time:
    • 7:00PM – 9:00PM
    • Service Patrol stays to put chairs away, clean up, take out trash, etc.

Uniforms

  • Troop 106 always wears the Class A uniform for all travel and is the default uniform.  When in doubt wear Class A.  It’s always  a good idea to wear the Class B t-shirt under the Class A to be prepared for either one.
  • Once a uniform, always a uniform.
  • Troop 106 wears the following uniforms:
    • Class A:
      • khaki shirt with all current badges (no Cub Scout badges, except Arrow of Light Knot).  The scout shop is excellent at helping you find all the proper patched needed for a new scout. LINK to official scout badge placement.
      • Scout pants: Switchbacks are popular and great for campouts and meetings.
      • Follow this Link to Badge placement
    • Class A Dress:
      • Same as above PLUS the neckerchief and merit badge sash
    • Class B:
      • TBD
      • Scout Pants
  • Useful Links to find uniforms

Campouts

What to bring on a typical Campout

  • Backpack/dufflebag to place all your items in. It’s easier to manage your stuff in one bag.
  • 20 Degree Sleeping bag
  • Sleeping Pad (most body heat is lost through the ground)
  • Flash light – Head lamps are nice when trying to setup a tent at night.  :-)
  • small bag of Hygiene items: toothbrush, soap, deodorant, etc.
  • Clothing – Layering is important.
    • remove clothes before you sweat
    • add clothes BEFORE you get cold – it’s easier to stay warm then get warm.
    • Use hat to regulate your temp
  • Gloves or mittens
  • Wool hat and socks (keep warm even when wet)
  • Water bottle
  • Camp Chair
    • regular size (not the ones with foot rests, tables, etc.)  This is to be sure we have room in the trailer.
  • Rain Gear
    • Pancho’s are good, breathable rain gear is better
  • The troop provides: stoves, lanterns, tarps, tents, pots, pans, silverware, cups, etc.
