2.) There will be no Scout Meeting on Monday, April 20th due to the Holiday, however there will be two meetings the following week, April 27th and April 29th in final preparation for West Point.
3.) The Troop will be heading to West Point on Friday, May 1st. We will leave from the Church promptly at 8:00 AM, so please be on time. Please see earlier e-mail for detailed information on the West Point trip.
4.) The Troop will be scheduling Scoutmaster conferences and Advancement Boards of Review in early June. There will be a sign-up sheet for those Scouts ready for Advancement at Monday’s Meeting, on April 27th. Please take advantage of Advancement opportunities over the next couple of weeks to finish up the next rank. The Troop will only offer SMC’s and BOR on scheduled dates, so please sign-up accordingly or wait until the next schedule opportunity. Mrs. Weatherby, Troop 42’s Advancement Chairperson, will be reaching out to parents to volunteer to sit on the scheduled BOR’s, if you are interested, please see her at one of the upcoming Monday Night Meetings.
5.) The Troop is tentatively planning an outing June 6th and 7th. There will be a sign-up sheet at Monday’s Meeting. More information to follow, however this trip is likely to center around Advancement Opportunities and we will be “trailer” camping.
6.) Reminder that the Troop will be conducting an Eagle Court of Honor for Alex Klein on Saturday, May 30th. Please mark the date on your calendar, as more information will be coming out for this planned event.
7.) The Spring Court of Honor is tentatively scheduled for Monday, June 22nd. Scouts should be planning advancement with that date in mind.
8.) Scouts should turn in their Merit Badge Selection sheets for Summer Camp, as well as final payment in order to receive full credit for the early bird discount by May 1st. In addition, all medical forms are required to be turned into the Camp by June 1st or at least an understanding of when we can expect them. Delays in turning all the proper paperwork in on time, results in lengthy delays in August when the Scouts arrive at Camp, so please assist the Troop in properly getting everything in on time.
