Troop News 8/25/14

Hope all in Troop 29 family has had a wonderful summer.    Below are some updates as we begin our new year.

9/3/14  PLC and Troop Committee Meeting – Charter School

  • PLC 6:30pm.  Key items to be discussed will be:  Review and confirm patrol membership;  Confirm scout role assignments;  Review options for Oct and April troop outings and prepare for patrol votes on 9/10;  Assign monthly outing to patrols
  • Troop Committee 7:30 – all parents are encouraged to attend.  Key items to discuss will be:  Assign adult support for each monthly outing;  Fund raising;  Review opportunities with community service; Reverence; Journey to Excellence; New volunteer roles


2014-2015 Troop Calendar   

  • Attached is a draft calendar for this year.     TROOP 29 Schedule 2014-2015
  • There are 3 months where the troop outing dates have not been finalized:  October,  April and June.  The scouts will make decisions in September for October and April.  As we clear the winter months we will be able to finalize June.
  • Our first scout outing will be 9/26-9/28.
  • Please take a few minutes to update your home calendar with the attached information.


Opportunities for Adult Involvement

  • Coordinate a trip outing for a month.  You would work with the Scout Master (or ASM) and the assigned patrol a few months in advance to define the details of the trip.     If we can have 10 adults (each owning a month) this makes for a very manageable effort!
  • Community Service Coordinator – We would like to do more community service and need assistance in identifying opportunities and assist the troop in coordinating.  There are already a number of ideas the Troop Committee have brainstormed, but need help implementing.
  • There will be movement in current roles (Chairman, ASM, etc) this year as families complete their scouting journey – so please begin thinking about how you can serve.


10/5/14   Scout Volunteer Opportunity for Remington Jefferson Challenge  (Rain Date 10/19)

  • Remington Jefferson is holding  a 2K-5K walk/run in addition to a Spartan Obstacle Course (for ages 7-14 yrs. old.) and needs youth volunteers for the water tables from 10:30 – 3pm.  They are needing 3-4 youth at each water location throughout the course handing out water.
  •  Please contact Rachel Klawson at  Mrs. Klawson will also have sign ups at the 9/10 troop meeting.


Please contact Deb Ryan at if you have items to communicate to the troop.   Deadline to submit communications is Monday morning by 9am.
