Hobo Hockey aka BroomBall


Our final Troop Meeting for the year has been moved up a day to Sunday, December 11.

We’ve moved the offsite meeting time to 6:45 pm. It’ll be at the Dr. Pepper Stars Center at 4020 West Plano Parkway between Coit Rd. & Commerce Dr. Please fill out reservation form and put the form and cash in an envelope when you turn it in at the Dec. 5 with money.

Hobo Hockey does not require any ice skating skills and is fun for all ages. It is basically hockey played with kitchen brooms instead of sticks and a red rubber gym ball instead of a puck. We have the ice reserved for an hour but we need to get a head count to figure out interest and how much each scout will be charged. We need a head final head count by Monday, November 21. We think the cost will be between $10 and $20.

Also, if you have knee pads, elbow pads and skateboarding helmet, please bring them. If you do not have any or some of those pieces of gear the Troop will be making every effort to provide those items for you.

Mountains, streams, lakes, trees, and wildlife are all things one has an opportunity to get close to on a backpacking trip. Join us at the campout from Nov. 11 – 13 and spend a couple of days enjoying these things as you journey through the Ouachita Mountains wilderness of McGee Creek Natural Scenic Recreation Area near Atoka, OK.

An internal or external frame backpack is required and each Scout is asked to bring an empty 2-liter soda bottle on this campout. Pack per the T1000 backpacking checklist for cold weather.
