October 2019


We used our Oct troop meetings to talk and prepare for the November trip (which ended up being canceled due to a poor turnout). We were supposed to have a gear shakedown on Oct 23 for that trip

On October 30, Mr. Gardenier spoke to the whole troop about the Blue Card process, sections of a blue card and how to fill them out.


On October 11, Troop 99 was supposed to go to an important event, the Camp Resolute 100th Anniversary Camporee. I was looking forward to this event and other kids were too but Triple E sometimes called EEE or (Eastern Equine Encephalitis) was in that area of Massachusetts.

The troop didn’t get attendance in time but the trip ended up being changed to a Saturday only event because there wasn’t a frost before the date of the trip that killed the mosquito. The Massachusetts Department of Public Health listed Bolton where Camp Resolute is as a “moderate level of risk”.
