Meeting was called to order at 2:30pm. Congratulated Scott Weaver
on his promotion to
Scoutmaster Scott Weaver
Thanked those that attended his promotion ceremony. Troop elections completed. Deputy ASPL’s will be announced within the next couple of weeks. William Seabaugh was elected SPL. Scott Weaver appointed Mitch Smith to be Junior Assistant Scoutmaster. Patrol leader cards are due by February 26.
Advancement Brent Reynolds
Scoutmaster conferences should not be given unless the scout has a Scout Spirit card. Scoutmaster’s should not give full credit if the scout did not perform the leadership position up to standard. It is ok to give partial credit or make a deal with the scout to do something above and beyond to get full credit. Scribes should give attendance forms to William Easley during the troop meeting. Scouts are responsible to check the website to make sure attendance has been recorded accurately. Ted Fuehr will setup a table next to Brent Reynolds during the meetings to establish an area for leadership questions.
Alex Borchof completed his project write-up. Morgan Baker needs more leadership hours and has been granted an opportunity to conduct an additional leadership project prior to his 18th birthday. Ten scouts scheduled for the Spring Eagle court on April 29.
Treasurer Kevin O’Farrell
Balance of Bartle fees due February 26. Philmont payment will be due in February.
Outdoor Tom Baker
February campout is scheduled for the 9th -11th at Rich Caffrey’s farm in Lucienne, KS. It will be a pioneering event and the scouts will build a shelter to sleep in. The scouts will also be engaged in orienteering, observing and reporting. 16 scouts currently signed up. Campout may be postponed due to cold or snow. Motion was made to move the meeting to the 23rd – 25th. Motion approved and the campout has been moved. JLT will stay the same. Rich Caffrey requested that large trees not be cut and no oak trees be cut. Any trees that are cut should be cut very low to the ground. Scouts are not allowed to go near the ice. City water and phone will be provided at the house. Two Johnny on the spots have been ordered.
