Troop 88 Scribe Notes – Sept 27, 2011
Josh announced that the schedules will be posted by the door for all meetings. Sorry if there weren’t enough tonight.
Josh asked for all Troop Guides and Patrol Leaders to meet with him to discuss the schedule during the breakout.
Fall Camporee is in two weeks. It will be on Oct 7-9 at PV. Mr. Bender is in charge of Camporee. Please talk to him about signing up. Please also talk to Mr. Bender about who can drive and how many extra people you can take. All adults who will be camping need to have their Youth Protection Training completed. We also need all medical forms for campers.
Pre-camporee will not be a camp-out. It will be Saturday at Mr. Lutz’s house from 7 or 8 until 12. If you don’t know where Mr. Lutz lives, please contact him or Mr. Bender. Please dress appropriately for the weather since we will be outside. You don’t need to be in uniform for pre-camporee, just normal Saturday clothes.
All popcorn orders must be turned in by Oct 15 to Mrs. Hoaglin. Please email her with what you have sold and what you need ordered. Her email address is firstname.lastname@example.org.
Zach said there is one more work day for the maze – tomorrow starting at 4. Please show up to help!! Haunt nights start this Friday, Sept 30. Haunts are every Friday and Saturday until Halloween from 7 – 11 each night. You need to have your own costumes. No characters like Disney. We want to scare people! Bring warm clothes and a flashlight. We need at least 20 people every single night to haunt the maze. There are thousands of flyers that have Troop 88’s name all over them. We need to keep our commitment to Flat Acre Farms. We also need adults to help with security and admissions.
Mr. Ski wants to know where the Facebook page is to advertise this haunted maze!
Mr. Ski also said this is our third year doing this so we can’t let people down who have been before.
Morgan Miller was recently elected as the Section Chief for the OA Chapter for our section. This is a first for Troop 88! He also recently obtained his vigil for OA. Way to go Morgan!!!
Closing announcement from Josh was that everyone needs to do better with leadership. The Venturing Crew did an awesome job tonight with knots and lashings but people were disrespectful and left after only a few minutes. Scouts need to be more attentive to what their Patrol Leader is telling them.
Nando lead the Troop in a poetic prayer about faith and God’s leadership.
