Meeting Summary (12/9/13):

We have multiple events planned for the next few weeks including:

o The Massawepie Outing, led by Zach Burdett, is from Jan. 17th to Jan. 20th and is a winter camping outing involving skiing/tubing at Mt. Pisgah, a trip to the Tupper Lake Wild Center, ice fishing, snowshoeing, and other winter activities.

o The Pin University will take place near the end of January. This is the Webelos equivalent of out Merit Badge University. It will not only be a good experience but a good recruiting opportunity as well.

o The Tug Hill/Camp Kingsley outing will be on the weekend of Feb. 21st, which will also be a great winter camping experience.

o The Klondike Derby is going to be the 24th to the 26th of January.
