Here are the Troop 88 Scribe notes for February 7, 2012
Tonight we had OA Elections. Congratulations to everyone who was nominated. We will know who made it later.
Josh said that tonight’s flags were pretty good considering we had some new guys doing them for the first time. He reminded us that we were all new to the troop once so make sure you talk to the new guys and make them feel welcome.
We had 8 patrol flags tonight. A NEW RECORD!
The troop needs two new buglers. If you play trumpet or want to learn how to bugle, please talk to Mr. Ski or Mr. Best.
The troop will have a DARE program on March 20, 2012. Thanks to Nick J. and his dad for getting this setup. It’s a requirement for rank so if you haven’t done one yet, make sure you bring your books to get that signed off.
OKPIK was cancelled due to too much snow. It will be rescheduled. Maybe in March. Stay tuned for more details later.
Klonderee is the last weekend of this month, February 24, 25 and 26. Please sign up before February 14 if you want to go. The cost is $15. This is winter camping at Tahosa. If you don’t think you are ready for camping, then you probably don’t want to do the winter camping. There will be patrol competitions at Klonderee for things like orienteering and sled races.
Mr. Bender will be doing a pre-Klonderee at Mr. Lutz’s house. He will send out more information on this. This is a good time to figure out if you can do a cold weather campout and if you have the right stuff.
Merit Badge College is April 14th. Sign up online at http://pioneertrails.org.
Dinosaur Ridge is May 12th. You can earn the Geology merit badge.
The 2012 Council Camporee will be Sept 21-23. Registration opens in March. There will be over 100 things to do according to the flier.
Mr. Ski gave a great big welcome to the new scouts and parents. WELCOME!
Mr. Ski reminded us all about the Scout Law. He talked to us about Friendly, Courteous and Kind. We need to be better about those things with each other, with our moms, dads, brothers, sisters and our leaders.
We have 25 new scouts joining us this year coming from Webelos.
The dutch oven cook-off was great. Lots of guys did a great job.
We need someone to help setup the “Love Bowl” football event. Mr. Ski said he is going to be a ref this time because he’s too old to play with us now. His knee just now feels better from the “Turkey Bowl”.
March 6th will be Troop elections. Send your resume to Mr. Ski if you want a leadership position.
March 6th will also be the Troop Court of Honor. Stay tuned for more details on that.
Mr. Miller told us that this Sunday at PEPC will be Troop 88’s Scout Sunday so we can say Thank You to PEPC for all they have given us. We will help with handing out bulletins, collections and DONUTS! We will be making the donuts.
Mr. Ski wants us at PEPC by 7:00 AM so we can get everything ready for Scout Sunday. Lots of people raised their hands to help so let’s all be there.
Mrs. Laster said that all rank and merit badge stuff should be in by February 21st so we can get the awards at the March 6th Court of Honor.
I think that’s everything.
