Various matters.

· A super thanks to Mr. McLean, Mr. Daub, and ALL the scouts who chipped in to help make the Scout Show Dutch Oven Cooking a great day and good showing. My vote was for the blueberry cobbler. Although the peach cobbler was good also. Then again, there was the chocolate cherry…

· Ely Boundary Water Trip (High adventure) this summer - we have one scout opening on Mr. B’s crew AND there is a crew of 4 Scouts from T888 and Mr. Thompson and his son that needs 1 more adult and one more scout.. bottom line… need 3 = 2 scouts and 1 adult. See Mr. B if you have questions.

· Thanks also for everyone who helped me fine tune the phone tree. See the Member's Only Section for the latest Phone Tree.
