Mar 13, 2019 Greetings, All! Troop 166 has been busy, this past month! On Feb. 13, we sharpened our skills on the archery range. All very Zen, Man. The skills are definitely improving, and I think we should all feel that much safer as a result. On March 9, we all gathered in the West Building to help our Senior Patrol Leader, Zak, who is in the midst of executing his Eagle Scout Project. At the end of the day Zak's leadership resulted in eight PVC cat beds for the Animal Care League of Oak Park. The ACL is a no-kill shelter that takes in abandoned or feral pets, and cares for them until a forever family is found. In the meantime, ten of those kitties will not have to sleep on the floor. We’ve been blessed by additional youth members! Joining us last month is Scout Lonnie M. We also hope to have one or two more join us in the next few weeks. Hooray for new blood! This coming weekend (Mar. 17) we will be pitting our wits with map and compass against other, and usually older, contestants at the Poplar Creek Meet of the Chicago Area Orienteering Club. Our Senior Patrol Leader, Zak, has shown a level of skill that puts him in the thick of the competition. Also at this one, “Yours Truly” has been asked by two other units to guide them in their first O-Club experience. Word seems to be getting out that this is an ideal Scouting activity. On Friday, Mar. 22, we’ll be gathering for an evening of bowling at Habetler Bowl, followed by an overnighter in the West building, just so we can be there bright and early to provide service in setting up and taking down the Indoor Farmers’ Market on Saturday the 23rd. And all this as we prepare for our first Campout of the year on April 12-14.
