I hope you all had a nice winter break and that if you were traveling, all went well and you had fun.  Back to the grind today!

We have the three elections Tuesday evening, so we need all Scouts to show up so we can have a majority voting for the Senior Patrol Leader Election and Order of the Arrow Elections.  Following those elections, the new SPL will announce who he has picked for appointed positions (Scribe, Chaplain’s Aide, Quartermaster, etc.), and then we will conduct the Patrol Leader Elections.

All Scouts elected or appointed to a new Position of Responsibility (to include new Troop Guides) are required to attend the mandatory Introduction to Leadership Skills for Troops (ILST) this Sunday, March 4, from 1 – 4 pm at LAUMC.

This Tuesday

Everybody - SPL and OA Elections take place first, where we need maximum Scout participation for the elections to count.  

Main Troop - Following the announcement of the appointed positions, the patrols will break off to conduct their PL elections. There is a presentation by Austin Townsend and Arjun Shivkumar of their recent world travels, followed by a game.

First Year Program Scouts will be meeting for the last time, finishing up any last minute items and conferences as they can, but they all need to be present for the SPL and OA elections prior to being released to their program.

Camp Oljato sign ups are live!

SIGN UP!  Sooner the better so that our Troop can register scout names and secure their favorite Merit Badges!

Camp runs July 8th to 14th, 2018.  Oljato is Pacific Skyline Council’s premier summer camp and a favorite destination of Troop 33.  We return every year to this picturesque camp on Huntington Lake in the Sierra Mountains. It offers aquatics, nature, handicrafts, shooting sports, horseback riding, log rolling, and water skiing.

An absolute MUST for First Year scouts as we integrate our FY skills / rank advancement with their Oljato program.    All Troop scouts, and even a few adult helpers welcomed.
