Hello Troop 737,

Thank you to all the Parents who came to the Parents Potluck on Friday night.  We had a great time and I am looking forward to working with you and your scouts in the coming year.  I especially want to thank those who volunteered to help our Troop.  If you were not able to make it and are interested in helping out please contact me or Michael Johnson our Committee Chair mwjinhills@yahoo.com. Later this week Michael and I will be sending out a list of open positions.

 

This Monday night some of the older scouts will be talking about their summer experiences at Bighorn Leadership training and Philmont Scout Ranch.  All Scouts and parents are encouraged to come and learn about the awesome experiences for older scouts.

 

Our first Court of Honor (COH) is September 29th.  Mr. Landon, our Advancement chair, needs 2 weeks to process all rank advancements.  This means that scouts will have only the next two meetings to complete their requirements for rank advancements to be included in the upcoming COH.  For those scouts who need a Scoutmaster Conference and Board of Review, please email me and Mr. O’Connor mikeoconnor@journeyfoothills.com.  We will try to accommodate as many scouts as possible over the next two weeks.  NOTE: All merit badges earned during summer camp will be included in the COH.

 

As Scoutmaster of a very active troop, I am constantly being approached about our troop helping out in the community.  The troop policy has been to give our Eagle projects the priority over any other service opportunities.  Instead of bombarding you all with these other opportunities I will keep a list and if a scout wants to participate in a service project or he needs service hours for rank advancement, he can email me for the list.

 

Upcoming signup deadlines

After this MONDAY, The price for Camporee will go up from $30 to $35, so sign up this first meeting.  If you can’t be at the meeting you can email our Travel Czar, Mr. Scutallero, ed@wispertel.net and let him know you want to go to the Camporee.  The theme for this year’s Camporee is "Colorado History." Most of the activities will be themed around  Colorado's rich history and Mountain Man historical adventure. Pioneering, Indian Lore and associated activities are some of the most exciting and fun of the outdoor adventures in Scouting.

September 15 is the last day to sign up at an increased price for the Timberline District Camporee.
