Patrol Week – Focus on Cooking!

Submitted by on

This week, patrols should be focusing on several cooking related activities:

1) Patrols should be practicing their dishes for the Micro-Cooking competition to be held at the October 23rd troop meeting. See the Micro-Cooking blog sent out by Mr. Fenchak.

2) Patrols should be starting to plan their menus for the Proud Lake Murder Mystery Campout to be held 11/2 – 11/4.  Patrols will plan a full menu for the Saturday of the campout including breakfast, lunch and dinner.  Patrols will cook breakfast and a Dutch Oven dinner.  Lunch should be a hiking style, light trail lunch – think easy to prepare food such as sandwich wraps, etc., that can be made on the trail.  Patrols will be responsible for OBTAINING and BRINGING all their own food for the campout for the 3 meals.  Snack on Friday night, dessert on Saturday night and breakfast on Sunday morning will be provided by the troop.  Patrols will be reimbursed up to $9 per scout.

Below is a Campout Planner to aid you in planning (need to be logged in to the troop web site to access):

All patrol menus for the weekend must be reviewed and approved by Mr. Price prior to the campout (no later than the 30 October troop meeting).  It is the responsibility of the Patrol Leader or his delegate to get this approval.  If you are a Patrol Leader and are not going on the campout, YOU are still responsible.

Note that Scouts working on Cooking rank advancement requirements or the Cooking MB wishing to complete requirements on the trail or in camp MUST have their menus approved in advance by Mr. Price or Mr. Grundhofer.  Remember that these are individual requirements not group requirements.
