The troop is planning a merit badge roundup for Nov 15th from 2PM to 6PM for scouts to meet with our current troop merit badge counselors and earn some merit badges. In order to provide badges that scouts are interested in, we are asking for scouts to select badges when registering based on the badges we can offer from counselors within our troop.

  • Please sign up online and indicate the top 3 merit badges your would like to take during the roundup. 
  • Once we have gathered an interest level, we will ask counselors to provide classes for those badges.

Please register by November 1st if you plan to attend! We need time to ensure we can plan for the roundup based on the classes requested. We will notify you as soon as possible after Nov. 1st to confirm the badges we can offer from the list below (not all will be offered)

Scouts need to prepare for the roundup by obtaining a signed blue card (merit badge application) from the Scoutmaster, merit badge book, worksheet and completing any of the items on the worksheet possible prior to November 15th.

Troop Elections: November 3rd

Posted by tking on Oct 17 2014 - 7:39am
With only 2 troop meetings before the November 3rd Troop Elections, it's time for all scouts that are First Class or higher to think about and express their troop leadership position interests to the current SPL so that the newly elected SPL will have this information to assign troop leadership positions after the Patrol Leaders have been elected by their patrols. The November 3rd Troop Elections is an extremely important meeting for all scouts to attend, as they will elect their SPL, ASPLs, and Patrol Leaders. All Troop level leadership positions must be assigned before the November 8th Troop Leadership Training session, as it's imperative that all Troop Leaders attend this training session.
The Troop Leadership Position Descriptions and qualifications are listed in an attachment under Training - Youth on the Troop Website and attached to this announcement. At the end of this document is a Leadership Position Application that must be completed by all scouts that have reached First Class, and turned into the current SPL no later than prior to the Troop Elections.
