Interpatrol competition

Posted by eegutierrezvivas on Mar 1 2018 - 6:40pm

Congratulations to the WOLF PATROL for winning the February Inter-patrol Competition. Their Flag Ceremony last Tuesday gave them the extra point needed to win this month. Good Job. The inter patrol competition enters its final stage. Just 4 more months and the winner patrol will win an indoor skydiving trip for their patrol. Remember to wear your uniform to the meetings to get extra points to your Patrol, and remember to have the correct patches and badges so you can also get points for wearing the secret item. Finally start practicing your knots, as, as soon as weather and light allows, we will restart the outside inter patrols competitions. So far these are the results:September (Buck and Grizzly), October (Grizzly), November (Eagle), December (Wolf), January (Wolf), February (Wolf).
