New patrols

At the troop's first meeting of 2017, on Monday, Jan. 9, its two newly formed patrols gathered under the leadership of newly elected patrol leaders to get better acquainted and to design their respective patrol flags, pictured here:

Following the patrols' creative flag-design session, many of the troop's Scouts with prior snow skiing experience gathered with Assistant Scoutmaster Christian Dagg to review the requirements of the Snow Sports Merit Badge. The troop's upcoming annual ski trip to Gatlinburg, Tenn., should allow these Scouts to complete several of the merit badge's requirements.
