Its time for our Spring Court of Honor on May 15, 2012 – just before Summer Camp and our Sea Base adventures.
Mrs. Wells needs to know if you have advanced in rank since our last Court of Honor. You also have tomorrow night to have any unmet merit badge requirements signed off so that you can receive the badge on the 15th.
Tomorrow night, the PLC will decide on the venue and snacks.
Yours in Scouting,
Scouts who are in position of leadership or that one day would like to be the Senior Patrol Leader should attend NYLT. At NYLT, Boy Scouts and Venture Scouts from across the Greater Alabama Council will be organized as an "ideal" troop to learn leadership skills and operate according to the Scout Oath and Law. You will be led by older scouts who have already been through the program with adult oversight.
There are two opportunities to attend NYLT this summer. May 27-June 2 and July 15 to July 22.
Please download the linked PDF file which will answer all of your basic questions.
Attached are the Philmont documents we’ve used in the past. The first attachment, “Philmont Document Guide”, provides an explanation of the other documents. It helps to know how to navigate them as you look for gear or try to come up to speed on what is necessary for Philmont. Use these resources as you gather equipment for the Philmont trek.
Hey guys, and dads,
Yes it is time for the annual ski trip, but there is no snow. Maybe the trip can be rescheduled when there is snow. Will keep an eye on the situation.
Time for the annual ski trip. Be sure to sign up asap. We do need to have a bunch to lower the cost per scout and dad. Hurry ! ! !
