Since Snowmageddon is a bust, we are going to hold the meeting tonight! Here are a few notes:
WEBELOPALOOZA IS WAS A GREAT SUCCESS!
Despite the weather, our annual Webelopalooza was a great success! We had several Webelos come out for the day and, as always, Tom Soszynski prepared an excellent feast for us all. Thank you to everyone who came out and participated!
February 21s at Pine Hill. Plan on meeting at the church at 7:30am and coming back at 5:30pm. We will field two sleds this year. Cost is $10 which includes lunch. Please sign up
On February 28th we will be taking a day trip for skiing/snowboarding/tubing. Families are welcome to come. The cost is approximately $70, which includes ski/snowboard rental. Signups will be posted tonight.
It’s time to start thinking about Summer Camp! This is our biggest event of the year and the culmination of our scouting experience. Scout that don’t go to summer camp don’t stay in scouting. Please plan to attend!
This year we are going to Rodney Scout Reservation in Maryland. This is one of BSA’s premier scout camps with arguably the best waterfront in the entire BSA (imagine learning to sail on the Chesapeake Bay).
Our dates are July 5-11 and the cost is about $450. This includes your camping fee, food, a seat on the bus, two Troop 36 T-shirts, and a camp shirt. As scout is Thrifty, so start planning your money NOW!
I will start to have signups and other informational forms posted on the website starting next week. I will have a signup sheet on the
February 8th is Scout Sunday. This is a national event to highlight a scout’s Duty to God. This year, we have been asked to hand out bulletins and usher during a service at our Chartered Organization, First Presbyterian Church.
This will be FULL CLASS A (no sashes). Please plan to participate. First Presbyterian Church has been an outstanding host to our troop for over 68 years. Lets show them some Troop 36 spirit and come out for the weekend. There is a signup sheet on the bulletin board.
Its time for troop elections! We will be having elections for Senior Patrol Leader and Patrol Leaders in February. If you meet the requirements, please consider running. All other positions are appointed by the SPL and the PLC. Take a look at all of the positions available and see where you would like to work for the Spring. You can find the job descriptions and rank requirements here (look under “Troop Leadership Cards”): http://troop-36.org/plc-forms/
As a reminder, you MUST fill out a form signifying your intent to run and that you understand the job requirements. Additionally, you MUST have a scoutmaster conference with me and be approved by me prior to running for office or being appointed for an office.
