Tonight's meeting

Tonight's meeting was supposed to be a fun going away party for our SPL Ben and promoting Ethan as temporary SPL until elections. 

However, I didn't realize that Ben would be wrapped up in the Charlotte's Web play until after 8pm everyday this week.  So I think we will move Ethan's promotion to next week. 

I need ideas for tonight's meeting.  We could do merit badge wrap up's and requirements for the scouts who need to advance in rank, or practice knots.  Does anyone else have any ideas? 

Sorry for the late notice. Scoutmaster Julia Bushong

Annual Nominations and upcoming Recognition Dinner

It's that time again to nominate your fellow scouters for all that they do in the troop. I'm a little late in getting this out, so if you want to nominate someone, do not delay, fill it out and email it immediately to kielis@att.net
Or simply type it up in an email and let him know it's a nomination.
The recognition dinner is April 6 in Petoskey.

Hey Everybody, It's time for parents and leaders of Troop 1 to sign up to work the 21st Annual Sportsplex lock-in. This means YOU! We need all available volunteers to come and help out. It's a long tiring night and the more help we have the more that people can work shifts and go home if they need to. Please check out the spreadsheet and put your name down. THis is our biggest event of the year and we generally have between 350-450 scouts and leaders in attendance.

No official meeting tonight, but optional meal planning for Headlands.

Boo hoo! I miss my scouts!
** No School = No meeting. **
However, we do need to meal plan for Headlands, and I have an Eagle board tonight at the hall. Therefore, anyone who is attending Headlands this weekend is welcome to come to the menu planning meeting at the normal time of 7pm. (Optional)
If you haven't signed up for Headlands you need to let me know today (or at the latest tomorrow) so that we can buy enough food and plan for drivers. So call me, email me, text me, or message here so that I know that your scout is planning on coming.
