Your Year is Planned! (Subject to Change)

Posted on Aug 1 2012 - 10:36pm

Thanks to your input and a great effort by the PLC, the projected troop schedule for the year is now available on the troop website. We have some great trips and activities identified. The schedule still needs some review, including alignment of resources, however, this should give you a good idea of what to expect for the year.

New Scouts, are you bored? Exercise!

The next rank Board of Review is in September. To earn the Tenderfoot rank, you must exercise for a minimum of 30 days and show improvement (Requirements 10a, 10b). The summer would be a great time to work on this requirement.

The August class is soon! It's not too late to sign up!

Leadership is a trait that must be developed and honed. Training programs are a great opportunity to learn and practice leadership skills and obtain feedback. If you are at least First Class Rank and age 13, you can be considered for Youth Leadership Training. You must be recommended by the Scoutmaster.
