We’re anticipating a fun evening of trivia! See below for details, and we’ll see you tomorrow at 7:00!
• PS if you have a moment, try to download Kahoot to your device before the meeting [see below].


More points are given if you answer a question quickly. Points are taken away if you answer incorrectly.


You can attend the zoom meeting and play Kahoot on a single device, but you will need to open two internet browser sessions. Or if you have both a computer and a tablet or phone that is ideal. You can Zoom from the computer and download the app on your phone or tablet to answer the questions via Kahoot.

We will use Zoom to present the trivia questions and you will be able to see and hear the hosts and other contestants.


We will use Kahoot to present, time, and score the questions. You will answer the trivia questions by clicking or tapping the colored square that corresponds with the correct answer.
• Download the free Kahoot app on your phone or tablet: App Store | Google Play | App Gallery
OR play it via the Kahoot website
How to play a Kahoot
1. Launch the app or click “Play” at the top right on the website.
2. Enter the PIN for the game. Troop 24 will reveal the PIN for the game at the start of the Zoom meeting at 7 p.m.
3. Type in your team name or let Kahoot choose one for you.

Don’t worry, we’ll do a couple of questions to warm you up and make sure you understand how to use Kahoot. That’s it! You’re ready to play!

Need help? Contact us at 708.267.6476 or email



“On my honor, I will … keep myself physically fit, mentally awake, and morally straight.”

STARTING AT 6:00, we will complete our rank advancement / merit badge Zoom meetings for March.

Mr. Flassing and Dr. Lanken will continue the Eagle-required “Personal Fitness” merit badge, and we’ll use “break-out” rooms to continue rank advancement work, focused on the Trail to First Class.
• FEB 18TH: be sure to join us at the February 18th meeting, when we’ll end the Fall Term with a fun computerized trivia game. Not just “What is the “D” in the EDGE Method”, but … “What is Mr. Flassing’s favorite camp dinner?” Join us for the fun!
• FEB 25TH: MANDATORY MEETING – Troop Elections [Senior Patrol Leader] and Takhone Lodge Order of the Arrow nominations. Details to follow.
• MAR 11TH: the Pack 24 Webelos II join us as Boy Scouts, and the new PLC is inaugurated [SPL + PLs].
So …

If you have a requirement you’d like to either discuss, explain, or demonstrate tomorrow, be ready – and feel free to email Mr. Lauger [] or Mrs. Enochs [] by Thursday afternoon if you have a requirement you’d like to review, to help us get organized.

See you at 6:00!

Pancake Breakfast Thanks

Great job everyone on another fun and successful Pancake Breakfast. We served 695 customers! A giant shout out to our master planner and coordinator Rich Hosek – fantastic work! Thanks to all our adult volunteers who helped with shopping and set up to clean up and everything in between. Thanks to our incredible community including Riverside Presbyterian Church, the local businesses who donated to our program, and our pancake eating supporters – we definitely felt your love! But most of all, thank you to our loyal, helpful, friendly, courteous, kind, cheerful scouts who all stepped in with a smile to run an amazing pancake breakfast!
