Troop 88 Scribe Notes September 20, 2011
Zach Sertic talked about the haunted maze. We still need help building it. We will work on it this week Wednesday from 4-7. Friday there is no school so we can work on it that day starting at 10am. We need at least 20 people per night to haunt the maze starting on September 30 so please sign up! We also need adults to work security and tickets.
Wreath Sales started tonight. Forms were handed out. We have until October 30th to get the forms turned in. There will be two Sunday’s at PEPC to sell wreaths. The 16th and the 23rd from 8:30am to about 12. Those who sign up should attend services too. Questions can be sent to the coordinator. Her email address is on the sheet handed out and her phone number too.
Mrs. Bepristis held a merit badge counselors training during the breakout for adults.
Mr. Garin reminded everyone about dues. 40 boys owe dues. 30 boys have money in their account. He also reminded everyone for the popcorn kernel that forms are due on October 15th.
Mr. Bender gave an update on Fall Camporee – Boot Camp! It will be October 7-9. There will be patrol competitions for things like boot javelin, boot ball, sponge wars, riffle shooting and geocache. Webelos are invited and will be part of the troop patrols. They can camp too but have to sleep with their parents. Medical forms are needed. Patrols will plan meals, shop and cook. Patrols will be planned later. It will cost $10 for camporee. Food costs are per patrol.
Pre-camporee will be the week before at Mr. Lutz’s house. More information later on that.
Mr. Lutz reminded adults about ITOLS on October 8th at Camporee. Adults can register for that online.
Mr. Decker went over how cool fall court of honor was. It was AWESOME! We ate a 200 pound pig and Mr. Albee was surprised. We earned over 300 merit badges! Let’s earn more for the next court of honor!
Alex made an announcement about a religious award class and there were 5 spots open for sign-up for the first 5 that came up.
For the breakout sessions, patrols were told to meet and talk about what they want to do for the next six months.
