Last night, Colin received one of his last remaining Merit Badges on the way toward becoming an Eagle.  Check!

Then, Huron passed his Board of Review to receive his First Class Rank.  And this was right on the heels of his earning Second Class at the last campout!  Someone needs a Leadership Position - stat!  Double Check!!

Finally, Phil, Zack and a newly First Class Huron were voted in by there peers to be eligible to join the Order of the Arrow - Scouting's National Honor Society!  Next comes their "Ordeal" in May or September and their opportunity to progress from Candidates to Ordeal members!  Triple Check!!!

Scout Advancement Records

Posted by mhachig on Mar 10 2018 - 7:55pm

I discovered many requirements in Scout handbooks at the campout this weekend that had been completed but not reported to me.  Please be sure your Scout gives me his handbook at the beginning of the meeting on March 13 so that I can verify all records for future planning.

April campout date change

Posted by mhachig on Mar 10 2018 - 2:21pm

Since Camp Miakonda is not available the weekend of April 20, we have moved the April campout to April 13-15.  The fort and the camp are both available at that time.  Sorry for the change; hope everyone can make it on the new dates.
