Another month gone! It is amazing how fast the days get ahead of us. I wanted to thank everyone for yet another awesome month. Congratulations to those that went on another High Adventure Hike this weekend (they keep getting better and more challenging - thanks to Don for helping put these together).
Well it is time to get ready for our January Campout at Oso Lake. This year we will once again be doing a lot of activities to work towards Bear Rank, including Achievement 19... What is this achievement you might ask? It is Shavings and Chips where our Scouts will complete the requirements in safety and respect of a pocket knife. Also at Oso Lake they now have tomahawk throwing as part of the activities.
At the Den Meeting many of you picked up the paper talking about what we do to get ready and stating the tentative weekend being the same as last year, Martin Luther King Holiday (Saturday, January 17 and January 18). Part of the stuff we do is sell Mistletoe to raise funds for the Den. These funds help eliminate the need for Den Dues and almost makes us through the year with all the activities we do as a Den.

Without further to do here is our December Calendar (please remember to check our Den Blog for the most up to date information):
