Troop 85 Update. 10/9/2021

Posted on Oct 9 2021 - 9:21pm

Hello everyone, I just have a few comments.

Apparently, we are being noticed by some families looking to join the Scouting family.  Liam Moore brought his friend Sean Koroglu to our meeting last Tuesday and he enjoyed himself and left with a positive attitude.  I believe he will be joining our Troop and bringing along another potential Scout in the process.  Great job Liam!  You may have earned the Recruiter Badge in the process.  With that said, Recharter is just around the corner.  I will be sending out worksheets for every family so you will know what is due in the form of fees and how those fees are determined.

Hello all, I only have a short update for tonight.  I apologize for not having a well thought out, long winded rant.  Maybe next time.

I would just like to remind everyone of Tuesday evening's Summer Court of Honor.  As usual, it will begin at 7PM in the HUB.  The uniform for all Scouts is Class A with sash.   The SM, Asst SMs and Committee members is also Class A.  Carter has reached out to everyone with their food and/or beverage assignments for the evening.  I am not sure what everyone's assignments are so please check with your Scouts.  I believe all the Scouts should be there no later than about 6:30 PM.

Hello to all, over the next several months the committee will be concentrating on fundraising while the Scouts and Scoutmasters will be concentrating their efforts on hiking and backpacking, canoeing, the Camporee at Avondale Scout Reservation and Wilderness Survival skills.

First, and foremost, I am excited to introduce the Moore family to Troop 85.  Liam and his father Kenny officially joined our Troop on Tuesday, July 13th.  Liam was quick to jump into the fire with both feet accepting responsibility for both the Troop Historian as well as the Spartan's Quartermaster.  I wish them the best of luck and enjoyment on his Scouting journey with our Troop.

I hope everyone has been keeping up with the activities of our Scouts while at Sea Base.  Steve and Will have been keeping us posted daily of their activities and they appear to be having a fantastic time.

The Scouts had a great campout at 5 Lakes on the weekend of April 23rd thru the 25th.  They survived some pretty ugly rain late Friday and early Saturday, ate excellent food, completed their swim tests for both Sea Base and Bert Adams Scout Reservation, conducted Patrol competition in Orienteering (congratulations to the Spartans) and did an excellent job cleaning and clearing the Skills area at 5 Lakes as an Environmental service project.  Job well done.  I know Jimbo really appreciated the work completed.
