Some of the hardest rank requirements to complete in First and Second Class revolve around aquatics. They are not necessarily difficult to complete, but they can be a logistical nightmare to plan out. Good news! Our advancement chair Mrs. Kristi Bluett has secured some time for the Troop at the Westhampton Pool on August 17.
Instead of our normal Troop meeting on August 17, we will meet at the Westhampton Pool from 6:30 – 9 p.m. (which is 1 hour earlier than normal) to work on First and Second Class aquatic requirements. Scouts will (hopefully) be able to complete all of these requirements except the “Line and Tender Rescue” (requirement 6e) that is part of First Class.
In addition, we will use this meeting to have a cookout with the Troop! We plan to have hamburgers, hotdogs, chips, etc. at the event. Please look for a sign-up sheet to be available within the next week.
Address: 4736 Westhampton Dr, Tucker, GA 30084
More to come on this, but we wanted to ensure the Troop was aware of the date, time and plans for the event.
