PATROL LEADER COUNCIL MEETING
The next PLC Meeting is on Tuesday, June 1, 2010.
On the 1st Tuesday of each month, we hold the monthly PLC. This is where the Scout Leaders will determine what the Troop is doing and who is doing it. We will meet at the same time and place as a regulary Troop Meeting.
This PLC will be to put together the 2010-2011 Troop Plan. Patrol Leaders should talk, call or email their Scouts to see what they want to do this next year.
It is EXTREMELY DIFFICULT to have a BOY RUN TROOP when the YOUTH LEADERS DO NOT COME to THEIR PLANNING MEETINGS.
If a Troop Meeting is BORING, it is OUR SCOUTS' FAULT!!!!
The next Committee Meeting will be Tuesday, May 18, 2010.
We need Parents to help make this Troop SUCCEED.
At this Committee Meeting, we will be discussing:
May Hiking / Canoeing Campout
Summer Camp 2010 (Camp Rotary)
Community Service Projects
Troop Budget 2010-2011+
Adult and Scout Participation
Summer Camp 2011 or High-Adventure 2011
If you would like your voice heard, this is the place. The Troop Chairs and Coordinators could use help in Fundraising, Community Service, Picnic, Court of Honors, Christmas Party, and many others. Also, this is where plans are made.

SCOUT ATTENDANCE (at Troop Mtgs)
EVERY Scout needs to be accountable for their attending Troop Meetings.
If you CAN NOT make a Troop Meeting, it is YOUR responsibility to CALL your PL - Patrol Leader, ASPL - Assistant Patrol Leader or SPL - Senior Patrol Leader.
If you do not call, then you will be marked as UNEXCUSED.
If you are unexcused, then you will be flagged in the Scribes / PL Notes.
At a Scout's Scoutmaster Conference and Board of Reviews, your UNEXCUSED Absences will be discussed.
This could affect your ability to hold certain Youth Leadership Positions.
We are trying to teach responsibility and accountability.
SCOUT DUES (at Troop Mtgs)
Once again, our Troop Scribe (Brenton) will be collecting Scout Dues. The dues are $0.50 per meeting.
There is NO LONGER a penalty or late fees. However, if a meetings dues of $0.50 are not paid on time, the will be assessed to the Scout the following meeting.

STEPS TO EARNING A MERIT BADGE
The following are the normal steps taken to earn a merit badge.
(for MB Requirements and Worksheets, see US Scouts Org under Advancement / Merit Badges)
- Pick a Merit Badge Subject (Read the requirements, talk to Leaders and
- Talk to your Scoutmaster or Advancement Coordinator (Get a Blue Card
and a MB Counselor's name)
- READ the Merit Badge Pamphlet (From front to back / see if the Troop
already has a MB Book)
- Call the Merit Badge Counselor (Introduce yourself, discuss your interest
in wanting to earn the merit badge, set-up meetings, understand the
requirements, know what you need to do)
- REMEMBER TO USE THE BUDDY SYSTEM (You must have another
person with you at each meeting with the merit badge counselor. This
person can be another Scout, your parent(s) or guardian, a brother or
sister, a relative, or a friend.)
- Work on Requirements (Once you know what you need to do, work on the
requirements, don't hesitate to call the counselor again)
- Show your stuff - BE PREPARED! - (Take write-us, posters, articles,
pictures; be able to discuss / explain each requirement)
- Get the Badge - Once the Blue Card is SIGNED-OFF by the Merit Badge
Counselor, give it back to your Scoutmaster or Advancement Coordinator
- REMEMBER - NO MORE, NO LESS (You will not be asked to do anything
extra, but you will need to do exactly what the requirements say. If it says
"show or demonstrate," that is what you must do. Just telling about it isn't
enough. The same thing holds true for such words as "make," "list," "in the
field," and "collect," "identify," and "label.")
If you have any questions, just ask one of the Scout Leaders.
