Last night Joey advanced to the rank of Tenderfoot at his Troop's Court of Honor. Some of the requirements for this rank included sleeping in a tent he helped pitch, assisting in preparing a meal during a campout, demonstrating how to whip and fuse the ends of a rope, explaining the rules of safe hiking, showing improvement in a list of several physical activities, and identifying local poisonous plants, etc. The two other boys that joined the troop when they were 10 1/2 also received Tenderfoot so they all seem to be motivating each other. Congratulations Joey!
