2013 TAG SALE UPDATE:
We want to thank everyone for your interest and support for our annual "Totally Awesome Garage (TAG) Sale". Unfortunately, we will not be having the TAG sale this year. The current economic climate has made it impossible for us to procure a space for a May TAG sale. We cherish the tradition of the TAG sale and all of it's contributions to the the troop and community.

Troop 893 –

1. Scoutmaster's Minute: In the scout oath, we all promise to keep ourselves 'mentally awake'. This means to be mentally aware of our surroundings, engaged in the activity at hand, and participating fully. I have noticed in recent meetings, scouts on their phones or ipods during troop meetings. If you are texting, gaming, listening to music, or some other thing, you are mentally checked out of the meeting. This behavior is a disservice to yourself and your fellow scouts – who are counting on your participation and contributions. Before and after meetings you should be helping out your patrol and the troop to prepare for, and clean up after, the evenings activities. Please leave your electronic devices at home, or at least keep them in your pockets, turned off while at troop meetings. These are your meetings! Make them great. Come to them ready to have fun, fully participate, and contribute as only you can.

REMINDER - Bring Your Summer Camp Deposit Checks Tonight

Hello Scouts and Families,

I will be at tonight's troop meeting collecting the second round of summer camp deposits and answering questions. Below is what each scout/adult will need to pay. Amounts vary depending on whether you will be riding the chartered bus to and from camp or providing your own transportation. It is highly recommended that all scouts ride the bus. Remember to make checks payable to "Troop 893".

Troop 893 –

The troop had a great time at the 10th Annual NCAC Orienteering Meet. We competed against over 300 scouts from all across the national capitol region! We were fortunate to arrive at camp, and get set up before the rain. All the heavy rain came overnight while we were warm and dry in our tents. Saturday morning we were out in the woods looking for our control marks. In the afternoon we participated in the Troop Score-O-Rama event. The attached picture is from our strategy session before the Score-O-Rama! Don't even ask about dinner...
