Scouts met Tuesday and broke into patrols. This is where patrol leaders can get an idea of who is working on what requirements, get names, contacts, emails and phone numbers. This also enables the patrol leader when planning to provide opportunities for those who need cooking and other rank advancement requirements.
As a reminder, you need to bring your books to meetings and most scout events. This is where you can track and manage your own path.
There are “logs” in the back of all scout books for you to record camping and service hours. Use this to keep track so that it makes it easier for everyone when you are preparing for conferences and boards of review.
New Scout Corner
In November, we are planning on having an outing at Camp Acton so that you can work on fire building, cooking and knife, ax, saw safety as well as knots (while some troop high adventure scouts will be hiking in the White Mountains. We are doing this for your benefit as some scouts could not attend camp and even those that did attend, did not have the Trailblazer Program that focuses on those skills. These skills are important for all scouts regardless of rank. The tentative date is Saturday November 13, with the idea that scouts would bring foil packs for lunch and cook on a fire. Mark your calendar and stay tuned for updates. We will be looking for some adult help as well.
The Troop Committee met last Wednesday. Encourage your parents to come and participate on the first Wednesday of each month. There are lots of ways for scouters (adults) to help provide opportunities for our troop. We have been asked to help with the Sleepy Hollow 5K, Turkey Drive and Christmas Tree Pick up so the next couple months, we can all help our community.
Do your good turn daily!
