Last Week for Winter Greens Sale!

Posted on Oct 24 2021 - 9:11am

Troop 71 is again selling Winter Greens!  As a way to add money to your Scout Account to help pay for Scouting events, uniforms, etc Troop 71 has arranged with Roden's Elegant Gardens of Beloit, WI to sell a variety of winter greens.  The Scout will receive all the profit from the sale which will be placed in the Scout account.  The selling period is during the month of October.  During this time, the scout can sell the greens, record the purchaser's information on the order form and collect the money for the order. All orders and money must be submitted to Mr Hutchins (wintergreens@libertyvilletroop71.org) no later than October 31.  Normally we then get the greens delivered around Thanksgiving where you will come to collect the greens and then deliver them to your customer.  The items available for selling and the prices are shown in the attached brochure.

This is a great way to earn money to help your parent's pay for your Scouting fun!

Advancement Tip: Did you earn a Merit Badge?

Posted on Oct 24 2021 - 9:10am

If you are still sitting on a signed blue merit badge card, your job is not complete.  When you finish, be sure to turn the Blue card over to Mr Audette for his signature and to deliver to the advancement chair for your records.

Personal Fitness Merit Badge #6

The next Personal Fitness Testing will be Thursday, October 21, at 5 pm at Brainerd Field parking lot.  The Merit badge requires tracking 13-weeks of fitness training with two mandatory tests.  Test nights will be Thursdays to avoid potential sports and camping conflicts.  We will schedule bi-weekly fitness testing in order for the Scouts to measure their improvements over the term.  This is open to all Scouts and Scouters that have completed Tenderfoot Rank requirement 6.  Anyone that hasn't finished Tenderfoot Fitness will be able to register and complete this requirement.  It is not too late for this year's course.  Be dressed to run.

Scouts enjoyed beautiful weather on our canoe trip this past weekend

Posted on Sep 24 2021 - 5:25pm

Troop 71 enjoyed beautiful weather out on the Wisconsin River this past weekend.  We paddled 11 miles on Saturday before picking the perfect sandbar to set-up camp.  A campfire on the beach with stories and songs(?) capped a great day before paddling the final 5 miles on Sunday.
