Committee and SMIC positions – Bless everyone who has signed up for a position. We still have vacancies.. I have started calling every registered parent in the troop (I'm currently in the R's") asking for assistance in filling the needs of our troop, be it MB Counselor, Assistant Scoutmaster, Committee Member, or event/activity Scoutmaster in Charge (SMIC). Each and every family is expected to help out. You can see the vacancies in two places:

Scoutmaster Invitational backpacking trip - I have rescheduled the Scoutmaster Invitational to September 17-19. I have sent out invitations to those who have contibuted mightely this past year to our troop. This year, we will be backpacking into the Buffalo Peaks Wilderness Area near Weston Pass (just beyond Fairplay). Mr. Leubbe took Artie and me there many years ago, and it was fantastic. It's my way of saying thanks. Nykko and I are really looking forward to it.

Rocky Mountain National Park Family Campout – Friday September 10th through Sunday September 12th. This is ON. I will be sending out an email to those who have signed up with details.

Mr. Wickham
