Labor Day Flag Service Project

Posted on Aug 24 2015 - 2:10pm

Don't Forget to Volunteer

The flag service project needs your help. As you know each patrol is required to have a minimum of 2-4 scouts and 1-2 drivers in order to cover their service area. Patrol Leaders should make sure their patrols have that minimum number of people registered from their patrol. We will deploy on 9/4 and pick up on 9/7. You should sign up for both here and here.

Please remember that the troop requires everyone to volunteer for at least one weekend of flag service each year in order to attend our shooting sports camp out. Don't miss out on the shooting sports fun because you haven't yet volunteered. 

Please make sure you sign up ASAP.

Vote Now On Where To Go...

It seems so far away, right? Summer 2017 is actually just around the corner from a plannin perspective. The troop needs to decide where we will go in 2017. Do you want to go back to Philmont? Seabase? Northern Tier? Or do we want to try The Summit?

To attend a BSA high adventure base you must be 14 years old or 13 and have completed the 8th grade by June 1, 2017. To be eligible to vote for our 2017 high adventure you must meet this requirement. We only want Scouts who meet this requirement to vote. You may vote here. Only one vote per Scout. Any vote not meeting the age requirements will not be considered.

We will be accepting votes until 9/15/15. We will tabulate votes and then notify all eligible Scouts of the results. Make sure you take part in choosing where you go in 2017.

Advice From an Eagle...

Posted on Jul 30 2015 - 1:01pm

Mike Rowe Has Advice for Scouts (and Parents)

You may not know it, but Mike Rowe (of Dirty Jobs fame) is an Eagle Scout. He often is asked to give advice and feedback to Scouts about their involvement in Scouting. Many years ago a well-meaning father asked Mike to send a letter to his son, a Life Scout stalled in his progress toward Eagle, to help encourage him to get his rank done. What did Mike say? Well, it probably won't be what you expect. Read Mike's response here.

Why do we keep this letter around? Mike's old-school. He knows that the purpose of Scouting -- as developed by Lord Baden-Powell -- was for boys to develop, grow and learn through their adventures in Scouting. Whether they succeed or fail, something is always learned. When we let the boys "do for themselves" we allow them to grow far more than they ever will with us adults in the way. Read Mike's letter and see if you don't agree.
