From Scoutmaster Maney's Backpack (8/4/14)

Good morning ALL,

Thank you to those who were able to help with our gear clean up from summer camp. Many Scouts and Leaders showed up to get everything back in order from Summer Camp.

Originally our Annual Planning Conference was scheduled for this Thursday 8/7/14.  We needed to move this to next Thursday 8/14/14.  There is a District Kickoff Meeting that I need to go to get the information for this coming year.  It will help us during our planning. This will be for the new leadership of our Troop.  More information will be passed out to those involved, so be on the lookout.

If anyone has anything more to add to the list that we collected at our Troop Meeting at Summer Camp, please let me know by next Tuesday 8/12/14.  Let me know what you liked last year and what you did not like.  Also let me know of ideas for outings and improvements to our Troop.  This will be brought to the Planning Conference and will be considered during our planning.

We are looking for a Scouts to be our Librarian, Quartermaster & Troop Leave No Trace Trainer.  If interested, send me an email with how you plan to fulfill your obligations and how much participation you expect to have this term.  I will forward this to Alec.

Be sure to sign-on to the website to read additional Troop 142 postings - especially regarding Troop Dues (time-sensitive information). 

Have a GREAT WEEK!!!

Yours in Scouting,

Mr. Maney

Congratulations Troop 142 for attaining the Troop Award of Excellence following your week of summer camp at Bashore Scout Reservation. 

To receive this award, all 7 patrols from the troop had to earn the Baden Powell Patrol Award (multiple tasks that each patrol had to complete) - try keeping 46 boys focused for a week! 

A special "WELL DONE" to Senior Patrol Leader Colin Heckman, his assistants and the 7 Patrol Leaders for all their hard work to achieve the awards! 

This continues our summer camp tradition of attaining these awards dating back to the 1990's!

Also, many thanks to Scoutmaster Maney and his assistants for giving their time this past week on behalf of the scouts!  

Great job scouts and leaders!
