1/14/2019 Troop meeting – all scouts encouraged to attend & seeking new Activities Chair(s)

During Monday night’s Troop meeting, SPL Bryan O’Koniewski will be leading
a PLC (Patrol Leader Conference) to set up a year long schedule of meeting
activities and desired monthly events. All scouts are encouraged to attend
the meeting to provide input.

Additionally, the Troop Committee is in search of a new Activities Chair,
to plan and coordinate monthly camping activities and yearly Summer Camp.
Diane Gill, previously expressed her desire to step back from this
position, and thus far no one has stepped forward to do so. This role can
be performed by more than one person. If you are interested, please reach
out to Diane Gill (diane.gill67@gmail.com) or Annette Schoeberle (

1/14/2019 Troop meeting – 8 PM discussion about Summer Camp

Good snowy afternoon to everyone!

Your scouts have narrowed down their choices for 2019 summer camp to the
following 2 locations:

*Ingersoll Scout Ranch* – isrsummercamp.org/ (more information) –
see attached registration form for camp dates

*S bar F Scout Ranch – Famous Eagle* (same location as last year) –
stlbsa.org/s-bar-f-scout-ranch/ (dates and more information)

*Scoutmaster Gill will NOT be available to attend summer camp* this year
due to his commitment with the Troop’s 2019 Philmont Trek crew, taking
place from 7/15 to 7/27 not including travel days there and back.

Therefore, other adults are needed to take the lead on providing adult
leadership and planning for this year’s summer camp opportunity for our
younger scouts and those not going to Philmont. There is the potential for
6-12 Arrow of Light scouts to cross over to our Troop in the next several
months, so we fully anticipate a large number of scouts attending summer
camp. Summer camp is great opportunity for scouts to work on rank
advancements and earn several merit badges.

Before Monday night’s Troop meeting, please review the above website links;
paying close attention to camping weeks. The longer we wait to reserve a
campsite at one of these locations, the less likely we will get a desirable
week and campsite.

We are asking all adults that are interested in attending camp OR with
Scouts interested in attending, to *arrive by 8:00 PM on Monday night* to
have a group discussion about dates, adult participation, location,
planning, etc.

EHS Summer School dates: 6/4 to 7/17 (6 wk session) & 6/4 to 6/25 (3 wk
session);
Anticipated EHS Marching Band Camp dates: weeks of 7/29 and 8/5 (School
Board approves 2019-2020 school year calendar at their 1/14 meeting).

Thank you.

Troop Committee members
