Court of Honor – May 6
In lieu of our Troop Meeting, we will have a Court of Honor on May 6 at FBC. All Scouts and Parents are invited and encouraged to attend to honor your achievements!  Although I am not able to be there as I am out of the country, I want all you scouts to know that I am proud of each and every one of you for all your accomplishments to in your activities, rank requirements, merit badges, and for just being Good Scouts!
Life to Eagle check-in
Calling all Life Scouts and their parents! The Advancement Chair invites you to a conversation during the meeting on May 13. Just a run through a practical checklist and to hear any questions you might have about the process or areas to prioritize on the basis of your work thus far.

NYLT, National Youth Leadership Training
Are you 14 or in 8th Grade? Are you a First Class Scout? If so, you have the opportunity to participate in an exciting, fun, and useful training through scouts – NYLT! We have some confirmed attendees, so let me know if you want to attend!
High Adventure – Dolly Sods July 10-14
Our five-day four-night foray into the wild of West Virginia’s Dolly Sods trip is scheduled for July. The Dolly Sods crew’s next steps are locking in our participants ( that includes adults) and selecting our crew leader. This position is perfect for the scout who is looking for a leadership position that will challenge him and help him become an even better scout. You don’t have to do everything but you will have to delegate. Don’t hesitate to step up.
The route is set, and meal planning has started. Training hikes, gear preparation are the next step.
See Mr. Rodger and Mr. Guynn for more information.
Stem Committee and Events:
Did you know that over 50% of Merit Badges are STEM-related? Mr. Steenstra (dan.steenstra@gmail.com) has found quite a few STEM opportunities coming up.
