Here is a slideshow of photos from the court of honor:
Today at the United Methodist Men Spaghetti luncheon, we raised over $1100. That must be a record or something. I would like to congratulate all of our boys. Oh, and nine percent of that money comes from a $100 check a guy walked up and donated. Good job guys.
This last weekend, one of our own, Alex Cantrell, won the Knot Tying Competition at Scout Fair. He tried hard once and got a ridiculously fast score, but then somebody came and beat it. So, he tried again and got a record 36 SECONDS! That’s 6 seconds for each of the six knots he was told to tie! Apparently a kid from the troop that sponsored the competition knew the knots ahead of time and practiced them over and over again and got 34 seconds (2 seconds lower than Alex) but we came up and said it would be better if the kid who had no idea and just came up and did it got the award. So he did. And here is a picture of him with his trophy and his nutjob smile:
A big congratulations to Alex Cantrell for being the Knot Tying Champion at Scout Fair! Good Job! He will get his trophy at the meeting Monday.
I would like to welcome and congratulate our new troop members who just bridged in today at Santa’s Wonderland:
Unfortunately they could not come to the campout this weekend but they are coming to the metting this Monday, so I want each and every one of you to give them a warm welcome when that time comes.
I look forward to “officially” meeting them.
Okay guys, this is a really big month for us.

Straight form our scribe Connor Thomas
We want our sign to say Troop 802
“A scout is clean..
but not afraid to get dirty!”
We need people to help with: Troop Flag, American Flag, 2 for the sign, Wheelbarrow, and 2 for the shovels.
It should be pretty clear by now that we will be participating as pooper-scoopers in the Holiday Parade on December 5th. AMCMS Band members, I have spoken with Mr. Dixon about the possibility of riding on an 18-wheeler and performing. He said that he has not got any information on that, and at this point it is canceled. Please let me now about information for boys’ specific jobs so I can update the site accordingly. Stay tuned for more information.
