Captain Howard and the Lieutenants had a meeting to discuss what we could do this year in Battalion. We did come up with some ideas and some of them are listed below. However we would like to know what you as guys would like to do in Battalion. Please leave us your comments or talk to us on Thursdays during regular meetings. This is YOUR Battalion. Captain Howard and the Lieutenants are here to help you get the most from Battalion.
Activities planned so far:
Thursday, September 24 - Bar-B-Q happening. Captain has bought the meat and is ready to go. We meet at the church at 6:45 p.m. and then go to Blue Mountain Park, play games and eat. We're usually done in the park by about 8:45-9:00 p.m. because it gets dark and then we come back to the church.
Saturday, September 26 - Hike up Eagle Mountain. Eagle Mountain is a great place to explore. We've often camped up there and part of this trip will be to locate former camping sites and check out the waterfalls. Meet at the church at 8:00 a.m. We will be gone by 8:15 a.m. so if you arrive after that we'll be on our way up the mountain. We should be back at the church by about 5:00 p.m. Bring your own lunch. Bring water to drink while hiking as it is thirsty work. The theme of the hike is "Creating Fire". Guess what that involves.
Thursday, October 1 - Our first regular meeting. Lots of great fun stuff planned but you'll have to come to find out what. We're not going to spoil the surprise(s) here. 6:45 - 9:00 p.m. at the church.
