Posted on Dec 6 2014 - 1:55pm

Our regular troop meeting on December 8 will be at AMF Centreville Lanes, 13814 Lee Highway.  The cost of $20 will cover one hour of bowling, shoe rental, two slices of cheese pizza, and unlimited soft drinks.  Parents and siblings are welcome. This is also the last chance for Boards of Review before the Court of Honor on December 15.  BoRs will simply find a convenient space at the bowling alley. Scouts and parents who plan to attend for a Board of Review but will NOT bowl (or eat or drink), you do not need to register or pay.  ("Scout's honor.")  Parents, please be ready to help out as a member of a BoR.
