Order of the Arrow candidate selections--NEED FULL PARTICIPATION!!! (Flaming Donuts-7:15 service patrol)

Posted by jaypullen on Apr 21 2015 - 6:01pm
  • We are holding OA candidate selections at this meeting.  What that means is that all scouts will be asked to select from a ballot those eligible scouts in the troop who, "...best exemplify the Scout Oath and Law in their daily lives..." (from the OA website).  This is where you as a scout select the best from the troop.  In order for us to even have the selection process, we must have at least half the troop present.  In reality, though, in an event as important as this, we should have full participation.  For the new scouts, this will be an interesting activity and one very important in scouting...you don't want to miss it!!!
  • One of our stoves has died, and the others are on their last legs.  In order to have enough to fully stock our patrol boxes with quality equipment, we need to raise money!  How is everyone doing with their Spaghetti dinner tickets and yearbook ad sales???  Don't delay, this is an important new event for our troop.

  • signup  deadline is Tuesday night for fishing campout this weekend.  We need to buy the food and need a good head count.  We will also be conducting Intro to Leadership Skills, a great prep for the new scouts as well as those now in leadership positions.
  • Keep selling those Speghetti Dinner tickets and yearbook ads!!!  Remember, if we do well, it will enable us to not only replenish our gear, but could help us lower the cost to your parents!
  • OA elections are NEXT Thursday 23rd.  Many of you campers will be eligible.  Is it something you are up to?  We'll talk a little about what it means.
