Scoutmaster update - August 13, 2012

posted Aug 21, 2012, 1:10 PM by Brent Browning

Summer is winding down, which means…  Back to Scouting!

Well, actually we have been Scouting all summer long.  Summer is one of the most fun and active times for Scouting and Troop 33 was certainly active.  We attended Camp Wente (37 scouts and 4 adults), Camp Oljato (48 scouts and 8 adults), Philmont (17 scouts and 7 adults), NYLT (5 scouts), NAYLE (4 scouts), and just this past weekend a Water Sports outing (4 scouts and 2 adults).  Wow.

First Troop Meeting – Tue 8/21, Summer slide shows

Our first troop meeting will be Tuesday 8/21 @ 7:30pm.  Parents are invited as well to watch slide shows created by our very own Scouts from our summer activities.

Court of Honor / Eagle Court of Honor – Sun 8/26 @ 3:00pm

We will have a combined CoH / ECoH on Sunday 8/26 starting at 3:00pm in the LAUMC Sanctuary.  Come join us as we recognize those Scouts who advanced in rank or earned awards over the summer.  We will  also be recognizing adult volunteers from this past year.  Immediately following we will recognize Austin Browning, Brian DeAngelis, Caelan Conant, John Wilken, and Brian Wipfler at their Eagle Court of Honor.  First year scouts can earn activity credit for attending.  Cake will be served.

PLC – Tue 8/21 @ 6:00pm

Green Bar please bring $5 for dinner and plan on coming to our first PLC of the year.  We will be planning Aug/Sep meetings.

SPL Election – Tue 8/28

The SPL election will take place on Tuesday 8/28.  Scouts interested in running for SPL must contact me by email.

Fall Leadership

Scouts interested in a PoR for the fall term should sign up on my pink clipboard at a troop meeting.  PL elections will be held on Tuesday 9/4 and our mandatory ILST (Intro to Leadership Skills for Troop) will be Sunday 9/9.

PoR expectations

I will be announcing some new policies regarding Scout Positions of Responsibility.  I am doing this to set expectations for the various positions and what it means to “serve actively”.  Stay tuned for further details.

Activity Coordinators Needed

Parents, we need your help!  We have a total of 35 activities planned for 2012-2013 ranging from half-day service projects, day trips, weekend camping trips, week-long summer camps, and high adventure trips.  We are a volunteer organization and need your help to coordinate these trips.  Kathleen McGall is our volunteer coordinator and will be sending an email soon with details.  If you can help out please send her an email at
