Hopefully we won’t have any more facility issues! We’ll set up all the tents and check all the stoves to be sure we have the parts and pieces necessary.
Goshen Merit Badges
The SPL will take some time to hand out badges at the end of the meeting. There are a lot of them. I mean a lot……… Note also that many Scouts earned “partials”, meaning that they accomplished part of the badge but didn’t meet all the prerequisites or requirements. Planning to hand these out as well.
We have a new Facebook Group that we are using for photo updates and positive anecdotes – it is located here: https://www.facebook.com/groups/315489231900796/
It’s a closed group for privacy concerns, so send a request via the link and we’ll accept you.
Roaring Run Backpacking Trip – September 14/15
This will be the first true backpacking trip for many of the Nukes. A true test of skill and a Troop favorite!
Down time is Scout time!
Take advantage of your relief from school schedules to work on your requirements and merit badges. Let us know how we can help!

Notes from the Senior Patrol Leader:
– PATROL LEADERS – It is your responsibility to touch base with your Patrols and be sure that they are paying attention to the Skills Training and working on their Advancement
– CELL PHONE USAGE – Not in the troop meetings, except with very few exceptions when they are being used for advancement or merit badges.
– Its Summertime, and the SPL has decided that neckerchiefs are not required, so leave them at home and stay cool!
– BRING YOUR SCOUTBOOKS TO THE MEETINGS! Opportunities for Advancement are being wasted just because Scouts don’t remember their books.
