This week will be our last meeting of 2017 – and what a great year it’s been! This week will be our last Board of Review. Scouts (not adults/parents) should have contacted Ms. Pallone to schedule a Board of Review if they need one. With the cancellation of last week’s meeting, please arrive by 6:45 pm if you need a Scoutmaster Conference in order to go for your Board of Review. Any Scout needing requirements signed off on should also arrive by 6:45. There will be at least one Scout there to sign off on requirements. Any other Scout leaders (youth or adult) who are also available to sign off on requirements who would like to help should also arrive by 6:45 p.m. Scouts who are not achieving their advancement goals can also request a Scoutmaster conference to help set advancement goals and create a plan for achieving those goals.
“The Scoutmaster conference is neither an interrogation nor a retesting of a Scout’s competence. It should be an informal conversation between Scout and Scoutmaster either toward a certain goal or as a requirement for advancement.”
As well, Scouts (not parents/adults) should be updating their ScoutBook account. Any Scout who has not activated their ScoutBook account was sent another invitation last week. If you are having difficulty signing on please see Lisa Walsh. Between now and December 31 our ScoutBook account will be linked to Internet Advancement (please be sure to back up any information entered subsequent to December 9, see Lisa Walsh if you need help). After December 31 ScoutBook will automatically sync with Internet Advancement. You do not need to have a requirement signed off on in order to enter it into ScoutBook, however you will need to have your handbook signed off on prior to a Board of Review.
