Our regular Troop meetings will resume August 31.

Hope you have a GREAT summer!

Troop Meetings

Posted on Jun 22 2010 - 5:06pm

Dear Parents and Scouts,

Just a quick reminder that our Troop meeting starts at 7 p.m.

Recently, Scouts have been arriving later and later (some as late as 8 p.m.!), which not only makes it difficult to start the meeting on time, but also to end the meeting on time.

It is our goal to end the Troop meeting by 8:15 or 8:30 p.m. at the latest; however, this is quite difficult if we cannot start the meeting until 7:15 or 7:20 due to a lack of Scouts. For example, there were only 8 Scouts (out of 60 registered Scouts!) at last week's meeting at 7 p.m., which resulted in starting at 7:15.

It also makes it quite difficult to run a quality program when there is a contant trickle of Scouts into the meeting throughout the evening.

Thus, please note the following:

1. Scouts should arrive in time to start the meeting at 7 p.m.
2. Scout leaders (SPL, SPL cabinet, & PLs) should arrive by 6:50 p.m. so they are ready to lead the meeting
3. Scoutmasters should arrive by 6:45 p.m.
4. Attendance will be recognized at the Court of Honor (we started keeping track of attendance in January, when we started meeting in the new room)

It is also important to note that rank advancement requires 75% participation in troop meetings and campouts. Now that we are keeping track of attendance again, this will be considered during Scoutmaster conferences.

Thank you for helping to make sure your Scout is at the meeting on time!

Yours in Scouting,

Rick Franklin

Troop Inventory...Do you have troop stuff at your house?

Posted on Jun 15 2010 - 8:56am

Do you have any Troop supplies or gear at your home?

Due to lack of storage for the Troop, many people are holding Troop items such as uniform bins, canoes, or other items at their homes. The Troop committee is planning for the storage needs of the Troop and would like to know what you have so as to plan for possible storing it in one location and returning your garage space to you.

Can you let me know what you have?

Thank you,

Kevin Wright

Newport Seabase Classes Now Enrolling for Summer

Posted on Jun 10 2010 - 8:51pm

This is a great way to knock out a few merit badges over the summer months.  Scouts should bring a merit badge book to each class. Scouts should also bring their Scoutmaster signed blue cards to the first day of class. The Newport Sea Base does not provide or sell blue cards.
