Our newest Eagles made it into the Troy Times (and online!)

Posted by godfreyc on Jun 26 2022 - 7:25pm

So long to our most recent Eagle Scout!

Posted by godfreyc on Dec 19 2021 - 2:15am

Nate turns 18 over the Christmas break, aging out of the Scouts BSA program as an Eagle Scout.
At this past Tuesday's Troop Meeting, we were reminiscing about Nate's years in the Troop, and Phil had a video of Nate and his older brother Cam from a few years ago.

Take a look and feel free to leave your thoughts in a comment:  https://youtu.be/pZpdn7m4H7Q

If you weren't there to send Nate off, he'll be around, skiing with us in January, and probably other times before his Eagle Court of Honor in June.

Will YOU be up there on the stage receiving your Eagle award as well?  Only time will tell, but we could have 2 or more Eagles to award!

Merit Badge App Testers Needed

Posted by godfreyc on Feb 5 2021 - 1:22pm

You could send it out in an email blast or post it on the troop’s social media page, but as time marches on, the link likely would get lost in those busy channels. If only there was a source that would collect and prioritize helpful information in a handy digital format. The BSA is seeking Scouts to beta-test a new app designed to do just that. It’s called the Merit Badge Helpers app.

Scouts ages 14-20 can apply here – https://bit.ly/3oPTziu

They will need parental permission and any emails will also be sent to parents. Scouts should expect at least a four-hour commitment testing the app and providing feedback. Initial design allows users to post links connected to merit badge requirements. These can be videos, social media permalinks, webpages — anything that Scouts could find helpful. Users can rate the usefulness of each link, increasing its ability to be seen. Every link will be reviewed before it goes live.

Posted by godfreyc on Dec 21 2020 - 8:17pm

In case you weren't on the Webinar Sunday night, it was announced that we have merged the lodges in the Michigan Crossroads Council into a new lodge named Michigami.

We're keeping 29 as the lodge number (formerly Noquet's number).

There's a contest for the new Lodge Flap and below are the details.  It's open to youth and adults (I asked), so get creative!
