While the first Thursday of each month is usually dedicated to Rank Advancement Requirements, this week we will be welcoming new Boy Scouts from Cub Scout Pack 169 (Otisville) and Cub Scout Pack 59 (Slate Hill). I know everyone will make our new Scouts and their parents feel welcome and right at home.
We are also working on transitioning to using Scoutbook for Advancement Tracking as it will soon connect directly to BSA’s Internet Advancement System. It also gives each Scout a nice one page overview of his rank advancement progress. As well, Patrol Leaders will be able to review a Patrol Report which will aid them in planning meetings. Please go to Scoutbook.com to set up your free Scout account. Each Scout account can also have a free, linked adult account. When entering Troop information, please use “1169” as our Troop number. If you have any difficulties, please see Lisa W.
For those who are interested, the Pocono Environmental Education Center (PEEC) is holding a free “Introduction to Orienteering” program on Sunday, March 12. You can go to PEEC.org for more information. PEEC runs engaging, quality programs with knowledgeable, personable staff. And you can’t beat FREE!
Looking forward to seeing everyone!
