Please make some cakes, cookies and confections for Sunday. Bring them either Saturday or Sunday.

Also Saturday:  TOSW setup begins 0830 in the gym and kitchen.  Mr. Garrity needs help prepping vegetables. Table set up will begin at 0900. Table dressing and prep begins after table set up.  ALL AVAILABLE SCOUTS ARE NEEDED.   Setup should be completed by noon.

NO Troop Meeting, September 6th

Troop Meeting Monday, August 30th, 7pm

Posted by admin on Aug 30 2021 - 1:34pm

Our Troop meeting for August 30th will open at the Scout Hut.  We have our old AC & heating unit out of the closet and we thought it would be interesting for Scouts to take a look at some of the parts of a typical house HVAC system.  That will start at 7pm.
 
We will then move over to the church gym for the remainder of the meeting.  We have Troop Leader elections and we will hand out Taste of ScoutWest tickets.  We also have a couple of conferences and Boards of Review to complete.
 
A reminder for all that Taste of ScoutWest is coming up on September 19th.  Our annual fajita dinner fundraiser will be held on the Pollard church gym and we will be selling tickets for $10.  All Troop Scouts are expected to participate.

Troop Meeting Monday, August 23rd, 7pm. Church Gym

Posted by admin on Aug 22 2021 - 10:38pm

Our Troop Meeting this Monday evening will be in church gym.  While we now have completed our electrical repairs in the Scout Hut, we still await our new A/C system installation.
 
At this meeting, Lightning Bolt patrol will hold their Patrol Leader election.  We are going to postpone our other Scout Leadership elections as we need to do interviews and discuss aspects of Leadership with all Scouts.  Attached is the Troop Leadership Application for those Scouts needing positions.  The Application may also be found under Menu, Files, Troop Forms.
 
Remember, each of the upper three ranks; Star, Life and Eagle require serving in Positions of Responsibility for advancement.

Troop Court of Honor, Sunday, Aug. 15th; Troop Meeting, Aug. 16th

Posted by admin on Aug 12 2021 - 12:23am

Here is a reminder that our post Summer Camp Troop Court of Honor will be held in the Pollard UMC gym on August 15th, at 3pm.  We will be handing out a whole load of merit badges to the 21 boys that went to camp with us to San Isabel Scout Camp in Colorado.  We'll also show some of the photos from our White water rafting trip and the fantastic Bishops Castle.
 
Mrs. Burt is coordinating this Court and she will be contacting Scouts to help with the event.
 
We will also have our next Troop meeting in the church gym on August 16th while we continue the A/C renovations in Scout Hut.  We do see an end in sight for that and hope to be back in the Scout Hut by the end of the month.
 
See you on Sunday!
 Mr. Fowler
