Swim Night

This meeting was swim night.  To get the swimmer level you had to swim three laps on your stomach (crawl, breast stroke, butterfly, etc.), one lap on your back (back stroke, elementary back stroke), and then float on your back.  After the test it was open swim.

Troop Gear

On Saturday we painted our patrol boxes.  First we had to sand them, after that we could paint them.  Painting them was really fun.  At the meeting we learned about troop gear.  We learned about how to take care of tents, wash dishes on a campout, and how to sharpen an ax.  You wash dishes using three different basins; one for washing, one for rinsing, and one for sanitizing.

Phase 1

This meeting we did phase one of the patrol box competition/cleaning.  We unloaded everything from the patrol box and took inventory.  After that we cleaned them with brushes and soapy water.  Finally we power washed them.
