This week's meeting will be held at our normal meeting time
at Bethel Baptist Church
BSA Troop 800 will be manning the Scouting for Food dropoff location in front of the Martin's on Midlothian Turnpike across the road from Chesterfield Towne Center this Saturday morning, October 10th, from 9:00am to approximately 2:00pm.
Kroger's Community Rewards Program will donate a percentage of your in-store purchases to the charitable organization of your choice -- hopefully BSA Troop 800. All you have to do to make this happen is link your Kroger Plus Shopper's Card to the Troop's account. This costs you nothing. Your spending is 100% confidential and this program DOES NOT affect your earnings toward fuel program discounts.

July 18-25, 2015 -- Camp Raven Knob - Mt. Airy, NC
Another July and another summer camp is behind us. For the first time in a few years, BSA Troop 800 returned to Camp Raven Knob in Mt. Airy, NC for summer camp. With 43 boys going this year, we had nearly 100% attendance for the troop.
June 19-21, 2015 -- Camp Justis - Powhatan, VA
The Summer campouts always tend to be more low key than normal and this month's was no exception. With a bunch of boys out of town on the High Adventure trip to Seabase down in Florida and a lot of others on family vacations and such, we only had about 25 boys on this trip, including nearly all of our first year scouts.

WEYERS CAVE - The sight of a medevac helicopter is usually a bad sign, but on Saturday visitors were encouraged to get a closer look. Crew members of the AirCare 5 medical helicopter at Shenandoah Valley Regional Airport opened their hangar to the public in honor of the service's 10th anniversary in the Valley.
Visitors were shown around the Weyers Cave facility and inside the helicopter to learn about the its role in the region. For Boy Scout Troop 800 of Midlothian, it was a chance to get outside and on the road while "exposing them to things they wouldn't normally do," said assistant Scoutmaster Howard Fishburne.
"I do love this stuff," said troop member Caden Caruso, 11, whose father pilots a Diamond Aircraft personal plane. As he ducked underneath the back of the helicopter, Caruso said he liked learning about the different features of aircraft, big and small.
