Weekly Post, Week of November 11, 2012

Post date: Nov 11, 2012 7:57:20 PM

Greetings Troop 737! I wanted to let you all know that I am really sorry that we had to cancel the campout this weekend. I managed to get home on Friday, but even today, I am in no shape to be camping.

This week there is no regular troop meeting. Instead we have another PLC meeting to plan out the rest of the calendar year. All PLC members need to be present of have a substitute as we discussed at our leader training. For the rest of the troop, we have two weeks off due to our extended Thanksgiving break in Jefferson County.

I have also updated and reposted the HALO list on our web site and you can see it at this link: https://sites.google.com/a/themountaintroop.org/membersonly/home/smic-assignments and as you can see when you take a look, we have some events starting early next year that need a HALO or two. I would like to take this time to remind everyone that we need help from every family to make this troop work for our scouts.

Upcoming Signup Deadlines (see below for details):

· Monday November 26th, last night to sign up for Golden Rec. Center Lock-in. You don’t want to miss this one!!!!

· December 3rd; last day to sign up for Okpik, however, if you wait this long, you might not be able to go because we have to sign up for additional slots soon. We have already registered ten scout spots and two adults. If you are interested, and we need more reservations, we will have to know before Dec 3rd.

Service Patrol:

The service patrol for October is the Nuclear Flaming Eagles Patrol!! All members of the Falcons Patrol should be inside our meeting room no later than 6:15 to help set up for the meeting.
