We will consider changing the next Eagle Court of Honor from 4/28/02 to 5/5/02 or 4/21/02. Mike Coffey will discuss this with Joe Johnson.
Greg Kent: Three new preliminary Eagle projects approved. We have ten life scouts who have been in this rank 1-˝ years. He would like to encourage them to work more actively toward Eagle. A long discussion took place about offering a “mentor” to Scouts that are 15 years old & been Life rank for a year. That adult would coach and encourage that Life Scout.

Greg Spies plans to buy new regulators for propane stoves. He would like to find out whether we will have new tables donated or we will have to purchase them. We will eventually need new tents also.
