We will be doing a 1 mile orienteering course on Sunday, December 12 from 12:00 - 3:00 pm at Lake Fairfax Park. This is to satisfy the First Class requirement "4a. Using a map and compass, complete an orienteering course that covers at least one mile and requires measuring the height and/or width of designated items (tree, tower, canyon, ditch, etc.)." If you are interested make sure to register and you should bring a compass, 12 inch piece of string, ruler/straight edge, paper, pencil, and wear appropriate clothes/footwear for walking in the woods and across small streams. Also be prepared by reading the section in the Scout manual that covers this topic.

Jake Abruzzo's Final Part of Eagle Project

Posted on Oct 27 2016 - 5:26pm

Hello Troop 20!

There was a small mix up in the paperwork for my project so I now need some more scouts to help with a small addition to my project! It will be at the same place as the other two pieces were. In the courtyard of the Floris Elementary School, there are two wooden picnic benches. We will be sanding them and painting them with a wood seal to protect them for the winter. My hope is that this will not take more than 4 hours to complete and lunch will be served. I can use all the help I can get, the more the merrier! Thank you all who have helped and are planning to help! The registration is now open!
