Troop, we are in the last couple weeks for Merit Badge College registration.

To remind you, this is a two-Saturday opportunity in Newark Delaware to earn up to 4 merit badges on 1/10 and 2/28.  You must attend both Saturdays. The troop will organize drivers and lunch.  

If you have not registered on your own, or thru me, please email me at t153scoutmaster@gmail.com and I will register you.   The $25 fee will be deducted from your scout account.

Some classes are already full.  
The pre-requisite list was released Monday.
Those that are registered should obtain the Merit Badge pamphlet, and start the prerequisites from the librarian, or from the Council store ($6?).

More information is available on the troop website here:

Mr. Ryder will be offering the Personal Management merit badge starting in December.  The work and meetings around this merit badge will be done outside of the regular Troop meetings.  The first session will be on Sunday, 12/14 at 5:45 PM in TPH.  Please complete requirement #1 prior to 12/14 and bring the attached worksheet to the meeting. 

 

FYI – several scouts started but have not completed this merit badge (Sean B, Will D, Patrick F, Joseph G, Will H, Marek , Shane, and John T) – now would be an excellent time to finish as it is an Eagle Required merit badge.

 

 

Thanks and have a great Thanksgiving!

Hello Troop!
It’s Thursday again, and I have a couple of announcements.

We won’t have a troop meeting this weekend since we have wilderness survival at camp Rodney. We will be departing from St. Agnes at 5:30 tomorrow to get to Rodney.

Our next meeting will be the CLASS A webelos invite meeting on 12/7. After our first half of the meeting led by our Geckos, we will be having a presentation on northern tier for the remaining time. I will be having a PLC before this year is up (still trying to find a date for that to work so I will keep you updated on that).

If you have not done so already, go onto signup genius or check your email from Mr. Schmit about our annual ski trip.

On the 12/14 meeting, Mr. Ryder would like to meet those starting the personal management merit badge before the meeting starts(more details about that in the coming weeks).

Your SPL & Webmaster,
Zack

Hello Troop!
Tonight I have a couple of things to share with you…

This Saturday, the pickup and delivery to St Agnes Day Room for Scouting for Food will start at 11amThis Sunday we will be having a class B troop meeting starting at 6:30-8. Also this Sunday(after the troop meeting) there will be a mandatory trip meeting for all parents of the scouts going on the Wilderness Survival. After this meeting we will not have a meeting until the Welcome the Webelos Meeting(12/7).

We still need a grubmaster for our Wilderness Survival trip. Somebody talked to me last meeting but I do not remember who…if that was you then either email me or tell me next meeting. (to pay for your food and lodging, pay $20 before we depart or use money from your scout account)

We have the Gecko Patrol who have volunteered to LEAD, organize and conduct the 12/7 Welcome the Webelos meeting. (please present your plan so that it can get passed by the SPL and SM). Also, Geckos, note that Mr. Schappert will be talking about Northern Tier from 7:15-7:45 on 12/7

During the last troop meeting we have had two scouts take over leadership positions, Jack D and Jake C. Jack is our new troop librarian replacing Trenton B who has left the troop and Jake who is taking the place of Adam K. as the Troop Guide.

Please remember to bring your scout book to every meeting and be prompt due to the security doors.

SPL & Webmaster Zack
