PLC Members - Prepare to Plan!

Posted on Aug 22 2012 - 8:19pm

Our first Patrol Leaders Council meeting is next week and we need to plan for a busy September. PLC members should "be prepared" to discuss the month's scheduled activities (that includes knowing what they are) and developing detailed plans and assignments (paper and pen will be useful). Let's get off to a good start with great planning!

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!

Posted on Aug 1 2012 - 8:10pm

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.

Do you want to be a better leader? Attend YLT.

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.
