Where we gonna go?
To the top of the mountain,
or the river down below?
With a pack on our back,
and a paddle in our hand.
We'll leave no trace,
across this land.
Where we gonna go?
To the top of the mountain, 
or the river down below?
With a pack on our back,
in the cold clean air.
On the trail of life,
we'll be prepared.
Where we gonna go?
To the top of the mountain, 
or the river down below?
With a pack on our back,
helping everyone we know.
We're Dan Beard's best,
We're 9-4-0!!!!

Shooting outing safety training

Posted on Jan 10 2017 - 8:23pm
Troop 940:
In preparation for our shooting outing I plan to have special safety training session at my house for 2 hours. This is open to all scouts and adults. We will go over the safety basics, proper range etiquette, proper shooting and making firearms safe. This will be lot of hands on exercises. I will have the first one this Friday from 7:00 pm to approximately 9:00 pm.
For the outing of things to bring, you will need eye and ear protection. Do not expect any to be there. You will not be able to shoot without them. Also we will need targets. The best cans are the steel cans vegetables come in. The aluminum is to light. Also milk jugs with water are nice to shoot at. Full bottles of carbonated beverages are good too. But remember whatever we shoot up we have to clean up. Remember the monkey brains (hedgeapples) mess at the boy scout camp.

This is early notice that I have changed the location of the Chill outing in May to Hocking Hills State Park.  Since the weather was uncooperative in November, we will try to get in a legitimate rappelling event in May.  The outing dates are May 19-21.  If possible, please clear this time on your calendars so that we can open as many sites as possible.

Christmas Basket

Posted on Nov 29 2016 - 9:20am

Troop 940,

As many of you know, it is a tradition for troop 940 to provide a Christmas basket which helps a family in need. This year we will continue that, and I have broken down each patrol into a food category. Please bring ~$5 of corresponding items from your patrol to the troop meeting on this or next Thursday. (The 1st and the 8th)
