Planning meeting 10/27 - We still can use your ideas!

Posted on Oct 23 2020 - 4:26pm

Our quarterly planning meeting is set for October 27 at 6:30 at the Band Stand in Burnett Woods.  We had some great ideas at last week's meeting, but can always use more.  There's a google form, linked here:  Troop 161 Planning Questionnaire.  Just give us your best three suggestions. No idea it too outlandish!  We may even visit a pyramid in Memphis Tenn.  

You may attend Meetings in person now!!!

10 mile Hike 10/24

Posted on Oct 18 2020 - 9:03pm

Mr. Casteel and the troop are planning  a 10 mile hike on 10/24 at either Mr. Airy Forest or the Cincinnati Nature Center, depending on what the scouts decide.  There is a Google form LINKED RIGHT HERE to let us know if you're planning on going and whether you want to hike the Rowe Woods Perimeter Trail (nicer and better maintained trail but further away and has a small cost) or Mt. Airy E-Trail (closer and free, but lacks diversity and not as well maintained).
