Scoutmaster message of 12/5/2016:

IMPORTANT ****** We will be having a Scout House Cleanup THIS Saturday, December 10th. We will meet at 8:00AM at the Scout House.  We did just have one about three weeks ago but with the recent rains the weeds are growing and there will not be time,  due to the upcoming Holiday,  to have one late this month so we need to keep on top of this. Our next cleanup will not be until January and we do not want to wait that long or the weeds . Anyone with Mowers and Weed Trimmers and can bring them it would be appreciated to make quick work of the weeds around the Scout House. ANY and ALL help is appreciated. We will take Whatever time you can give!! Please Help !!

Our Next PLC meeting will be at 6:30PM NEXT Monday before the Troop meeting. We need ALL Leadership to be present – SPL, ASPL, Pl & APL! Please be on time. We have several items to discuss.

Elections are coming up after we return from our Holiday break. We will be having nominations for SPL and ASPL on Monday, January 9th. You need to be at least a 1st Class rank for ASPL and a Star rank for SPL. If you are interested and may be lacking a particular rank requirement see Mr. McVeigh to discuss. The Scoutmaster has the ability to grant exceptions to this requirement. We need Scouts to step up and lead the Troop. We will also be holding Patrol elections  at the same time so plan to step up and lead!

Please sign up for the upcoming 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.

January 13th – 15th – Lava Tubes / Rainbow Basin – We will be doing our Patrol and meal planning for this campout at the January 9th meeting. If you plan to go on this campout you NEED to be present at the Troop meeting!
February 18th – 20th – Death Valley

Our Annual Christmas party will be held on Monday, December 19th. We will be doing our gift exchange game so if you want to participate you need to bring a gift that is Scout Related or Camping Related wrapped with NO names or who it is from on the outside (Plain wrapped gift). The value of the gift should be between ten to fifteen dollars. Again you need to bring a gift to participate in the game. Everyone you participates will leave with a gift (and not their own). We will also need you to bring a snack or treat to share with everyone.

We will be on break for the Holidays from December 26th through January 2nd returning to our normal meetings starting on Monday, January 9th.

Thank you,
Michael McVeigh
