Ten Commandments Hike

Posted by carolecraft on Nov 18 2014 - 10:31pm

What is a Ten Commandment Hike? It’s a unique and exciting way to embrace the concept of religious tolerance, learn local history, participate in community service, and have fun. And it’s a good way to work off that Thanksgiving dinner!

The event is held November 28, from 8:45 am - 4:00 pm. Cost is $9 and includes a special patch, drink with lunch (pack a bag lunch), and dessert. Deadline to register is November 24.

Troop Meeting, Thursday, November 13, 2014

Posted by carolecraft on Nov 11 2014 - 11:06pm

The PLC has decided to have leadership meetings this week. There is no regular troop meeting this Thursday. Please read below to see if you need to attend this week.

The following people should meet at 7:30:

  • PLC (Billy R, Max O, Logan B, Dan H, Evan W, Jamie B, Nathan A). ​They will have an extended council meeting to work on detailed meeting plans through 2/5.
  • Troop leaders: 
    • ​JASM-Dan C
    • Chaplain's Aide-Grayden S
    • Quartermaster-Dan S
    • Historian-Simon M
    • Librarian-Connor B
    • OA Rep-Max K
  • Troop leaders should come with a list of goals (it may only be one or two)​ that you would like to accomplish for your position during your tenure. Make sure the goals are Specific, Measurable, Achievable, Realistic, Time-bound (SMART)​. We'll talk about what exactly that means, but you MUST bring in ideas for your position that you think will fit these requirements and will help the troop. We will talk about your goals, discuss whether they can be accomplished, and if they will help the troop. Please do some serious thinking and bring in good ideas!
  • Cool Runnings Patrol and Troop Guides (Nathan H, Alex K). You will work on Scout skills you have not covered yet in your trail to first class. You guys will also talk about a plan to make it to first class by the April 9 Court of Honor.

​Anyone not mentioned above does NOT need to attend this week. Have a great week off! Maybe use the time to work on some merit badge requirements, practice knot tying, or research some new games to play at meetings.
