As part of the training, ASM Tim had 8 participants divide into two teams, gave them the same components and over two hours to create, prepare and serve their meals to the judges. (Leaders of course….) Teams were judged on Team Work, Safety, Creativity, cleanliness and taste.

The winner of this event will be announced at Monday’s meeting, but the real winners are the participants and the Scouts of Troop 108.

Thank You ASM Tim.

25 Mar 2014 Unity Presbyterian Work Day
 |  Category: Service Hours Opportunity  | Comments off

The annual Unity work day is scheduled for Saturday, March 29th (with a rain date of April 12th).  This is a great way to show Unity how much we appreciate their support of our Troop as well as earn service hours.  

The day will begin at 8:00 am and we hope to be finished before noon.  Show up in your activity uniform (troop t-shirt) and sign up at the table at the front of the historic sanctuary.  Make sure that any tools that you bring are marked with your name so you’ll get them back.

It is absolutely fine if you can’t commit to the entire morning, but we certainly hope you will spend some of your morning with us.  We do need as many hands as possible to make this a success!

14 Feb 2014 Ludolph Eagle Project Update

its a go

Ben has surveyed the project site and accesses and though the driveways and walkways are icy, the project is still a “go”.

The project leader asks that you come to the school using the bus entrance because the regular school entrance is very icy and hilly.

Please use your own judgment and drive and walk carefully. We look forward to seeing you at Fort Mill Middle School today.
