Troop Meeting, Thursday, October 23, 2014

Service Patrol - Dragon Patrol (Arrive at 7:15)

Troop meeting - 7:30

Due this week:

  • Preliminary sign-ups for Wilderness Survival campout (reminder: no grub money required) 


  • We're trying something new for the weekly e-blasts, to take better advantage of some features of the website and reduce duplication of effort.
  • The PLC and Mr. Pullen have developed agendas for upcoming meetings. Those are posted online for easy access. Rather than retyping/copying the content, we're simply going to link to the current agenda file (as above).
  • We will also start putting details about campouts and other events in the calendar, rather than including that info in the announcements. Upcoming and newly updated events appear automatically with each e-blast.
  • To access the agenda, calendar info, and other helpful materials, you'll need to log in to the website. Each scout and at least one of his parents has a user ID and password, which has been provided previously. If you need that info again, please contact Mrs. Craft at carolecraft@live.com

Service Patrols to Help with Set-up and Clean-up

Posted by carolecraft on Oct 20 2014 - 9:42pm

We have begun having a "service patrol" responsible for setting up the room before the meeting, staffing the color guard, then putting the room back in order after the meeting.  Last week Cool Runnings were on duty.  Each week, the service patrol will be included with the agenda in e-call.

The service patrol should arrive by 7:15 to ensure the room is ready and flags are retrieved from the QM.

$1 per Week Dues Begin November 6

Posted by carolecraft on Oct 20 2014 - 9:21pm

Starting November 6, scouts will need to bring in $1 to each troop meeting as part of their dues.

As previously noted, half of the weekly dues will help pay for troop expenses; the other half will be held in the scout's ISA account to be used for camp and scouting gear.

The $1 weekly scout dues will help teach accountability and saving. It will also provide additional responsibilities for patrol leaders and the scribe in collecting and accounting for the weekly monies.

Scouts who miss a week will be expected to bring the $1 for the week(s) missed when they return.
