    •  Emails that were listed in Troopmaster as "new" or "inactive" have been sent an auto generated password to aid in the log in process.  Please attempt to log in and change your password prior to the in person optional parent meeting next Monday.

    • * If your scout has not turned in their summer camp registration form please do so ASAP.  If you have questions or concerns please ask.  

    • REMINDER: all scouts are expected to attend a minimum of 50% of outings to be considered an "active scout" unless there are mitigating circumstances. If you are a member of the PLC the minimum requirement can go up to 80% for the period of your time in the current PLC. The more outings you participate in the more scouting you accomplish so check your calendars and plan to camp!  

    • Parents, we are selecting camps within an hour drive to make it easier for you to provide transportation for your scouts to outings while the Troop is unable to provide carpooling (Covid-19 restriction.) Reminder, all families are asked to go on at least one outing per year. Since you have to drive anyway please consider staying at the outings.  Please sign up for an outing for 2021 asap. (look at brochure or Troopmaster and send an email if you can commit to an outing now)
