Scoutmaster message of October 16, 2017:

Please sign up for the upcoming Events / Campouts. We need to have you signed up and paid At Least Two Weeks before the campout in order to properly have time to put them together.

November 10th – 12th – Afton Canyon Campout
January 19th-21st – Ladder Canyon Campout
February 17th – 19th – Death Valley Campout

We are planning an Open House on Saturday, November 18th  from 1:00PM – 3:00PM. We need Everyone (Scouts and Parents) to help run activities and talk to prospective Scouts.  In addition to showing off what our Troop has to offer, we have invited the Tribe of Tahquitz to perform a full Native Indian dance exhibition. Please make plans to participate!!

There is a Scout Stem Expo on November 4 from 11am to 5pm.  We would like to have the Scouts volunteer to run and booth and we would have to provide coverage for the entire day. We will discuss this further at the next Troop meeting and have signups.  If we volunteer, we can put extra info out for the membership booth that council will have set up.

Our Troop Halloween Party has been moved to Monday, October 30th. Start working on your costume and plan to bring a food item or treat to share with your fellow

Our next Adams Street / Scouthouse Cleanup will be held on Saturday, October 28th from 8:00AM – 11:00AM. Please meet at the parking lot of the industrial complex located on the corner of Adams and Lincoln. Once we are done cleaning up Adams Street we will head over to the Scouthouse. We need everyone to help. The weeds are growing tall and we cannot wait any longer to take care of them.

We are looking into having someone visit the Troop and give some Leadership Training to our Parents (Adults). We need more adult leadership to assist with the program. See Mr. Grimes or Mrs. Sovine if you are interested so we can schedule this with the District.

Re-Charting has started and we need to have it completed BEFORE the Thanksgiving Break (by November 13th) in order to have it turned in by the November deadline. I have been informed that in order for ANY Adult leader to be registered you need to have a current Youth Protection certificate in place.  Youth Protection is now going to be managed by the National headquarters rather than the local Councils. This certification  will now be required Annually so please go online and get your Youth Protection completed so we do not have any delays! WE are recommending that everyone take the Youth Protection Training in the next month so that every year the YPT training will line up with re-charting time. This will make it easy on everyone.

All Scouts should be in Full Class “A” uniform with a Class “B” shirt under their Class “A” for activities and games. Please come properly dressed to the meetings!

Thank you,
Michael McVeigh
