One of the most popular events during the year is Game Night. Our next game night is on February 16th at 6pm ~ 17th at 10:30am at Unity Church. Scouts are encouraged to bring the game(s) of their choice as long as they’re in line with scouting principles. Pizza and drinks will be provided for dinner on Friday and a continental breakfast will be provided Saturday morning.
Sleeping arrangements will be on the floor in the Fellowship Hall, so plan accordingly.
The senior patrol leader has planned for a Saturday morning event following game night to organize troop equipment. Scouts can be picked up at the church following this equipment event between 10:30am and 11am on Saturday morning.
All attendees must sign up by clicking on the TroopMaster logo in the right column of this website and after logging in, then register for the event. Cost for the event is $6.00 and scouts can pay in cash upon arrival or you can pay on the website ($6.00 plus $0.49 Paypal fee).
Be sure to bring your scout t-shirt/sweatshirt for Saturday morning equipment event.
Just a reminder that the “No School/No Scouts” rule comes into play for tonight’s meeting. We will be meeting on January 22nd following the Polar Bear campout at Camp Conley Clarke (C3).
Congratulations to Steve Finch who was selected as one of three recipients of the District Award of Merit (aka The Palmetto Award) winners at last night’s York District Banquet.
Steve has been instrumental in working with Eagle Scout candidates from Troop 108 on their leadership projects for Eagle as well as with preparations for the final Eagle Board of Review itself.
This award looks beyond what the recipient has done on the local unit level. Steve has served on the York District Eagle Board of Review for a number of years, most recently as it’s chairman. He also has served on the Palmetto Council Shooting Sports Committee for several years. Many of the council’s youth leaders will remember Steve’s guidance and leadership from when he help staff both SEALS and NYLT courses in the Palmetto Council.
Again, congratulations to Steve on his selection for this much deserved recognition.
Scouts ~ May the new year bring you many opportunities for growth and development, character building, great adventures, rank advancements and memories that will last a lifetime.
We look forward to seeing each of you at our next meeting on January 8th where we will cover cold weather camping and cooking along with information about the upcoming polar bear camp out.

The Unity Presbyterian Church Angel Tree supports local families by providing Christmas gifts to the family clients of the Fort Mill and Catawba Care Centers along with Family Promise and RAIN partners.
As in years past, Troop 108 is sponsoring a bicycle for a youngster in need. We are giving a blue 24” bicycle to the program for a local 10 year old boy for Christmas.
Scouts and Scouting families that would like to contribute to this bicycle donation may place their donation in the special donation box set up at the next two troop meetings.
Thank you in advance for your support.
