Where we gonna go?
To the top of the mountain,
or the river down below?
With a pack on our back,
and a paddle in our hand.
We'll leave no trace,
across this land.
Where we gonna go?
To the top of the mountain, 
or the river down below?
With a pack on our back,
in the cold clean air.
On the trail of life,
we'll be prepared.
Where we gonna go?
To the top of the mountain, 
or the river down below?
With a pack on our back,
helping everyone we know.
We're Dan Beard's best,
We're 9-4-0!!!!

Troop 940,

As many of you know, it is a tradition for troop 940 to provide a Christmas basket which helps a family in need. This year we will continue that, and I have broken down each patrol into a food category. Please bring ~$5 of corresponding items from your patrol to the troop meeting on this or next Thursday. (The 1st and the 8th)

If you've been waiting for the Black Friday sale on outings, then wait no more, because I'm offering a fabulous 0% off sale on our Winter Backpacking outing.  Yes, it's exactly the same price it was 10 days ago, so it's time to commit to getting away from the holidays for a weekend and enjoy some backpacking.
