We got a great start on the float build this past Monday with groups assigned to the 3 major subcomponents of our Guardians of the Galaxy Theme.   We are definitely going to need another 2 sessions to complete the work.  We will not have a Troop meeting on Monday Nov 27 and instead those who want to help with the holiday float build should meet at Mr Heggem’s  shop 7:00-8:30pm.   The final build meeting  will be Saturday, Dec 2, time TBD, the day before the parade.
