Lets Bury The Hatchet

Mr. Locke has challenged the Scoutmasters of each Troop to construct a hatchet handle and sheath to display at Klondike. You may pick up the metal blank at the Scout Office and start your project. You will need to sharpen it too.

A fabulous prize awarded to the winner. Please note that the Judges will be the Camping Committee as we cannot be coerced or bribed in any way. My email is desireesoapcompany@gmail.com if you would like to try and bribe me.


Kidding aside good luck!

Our Scouting Journey to Excellence

Journey to Excellence (JTE) is Scouting’s way to measuring the quality of our program at each of our Packs, Troops, Crews and Teams.  A unit with a high JTE score is a unit that is recruiting youth, advancing them in the program and delivering a great Scouting program.

Your unit’s JTE score tells the parents in your unit about how the great program that they will experience for their son if they join or continue to participate in your unit.  Completing this exercise is extremely worthwhile.  Your JTE score is due with your unit recharter.  If that proves to be impossible, please turn it in to District Executive Dustin Shoemake or District Commissioner Rex Jewett by December 1.

You can download your scoresheets here:
