Training Opportunities - Please read

Greetings from Troop 66:

This note is for all adults in Troop 66, leaders or parents. In order to provide a safe program for our boys, we insist that all adults take the youth protection course (details below).

I would also strongly encourage anyone interested in helping out on the committee or as an assistant Scoutmaster to sign up for the Scoutmaster training.

This isn't a large commitment and it is essential for us to keep up the quality of our unit.

Please consider this training.

Mr. C

Scout Meeting - May 9, 2008

Greetings from Troop 66:

New Scouts cross over from Pack 67

We welcome the new Scouts from Pack 67. We had 8 of the 11 Scouts crossing over attend our meeting. Charlie T, their Troop Guide, worked with a number of other Scout instructors to help the boys earn their Scout badge. The Scout badge is the first badge the boys can earn. Requirements can be found in the Boy Scout handbook or at this link.

Our Jaguar and Dragon patrol continued to work on First Aid Requirements.

The Roadrunners, Red Moon Raccoons, Falcons, Eagles, and Vipers served as instructors for the first year Scouts and completed a Quartermaster project.

New Senior Patrol Leader (SPL) Elected
Last week's election was our primary to narrow the slate of candidates down to the four candidates who ran at the meeting yesterday.

The new-elected SPL is James. The Assistant Senior Patrol Leader (ASPL) is Mark.
