Mike Coffey instead of the 6/9 Troop Committee Meeting we will have a meeting of Mic-O-Say Tribal Council to begin at 5 PM all adult leaders are invited
Mike Coffey reviewed the policy for scouts who drive to and from events it was voted to adopt this as a new policy:
Older scouts are encouraged to continue participation in the troop, and the troop recognizes that due to the many demands on a high school students schedule, travel with the troop is not always possible. Scouts are discouraged from driving personal cars to/from troop activities. However, licensed scouts may drive to outings with parental permission provided that the following criteria are met:
· The scout must advise the scoutmaster of his intention to drive and expected arrival time before the outing is scheduled to occur.
· The scout must use his vehicle solely for the purpose of transportation to and from the scheduled activity.
· He may not use the vehicle during the outing without the express permission of the scoutmaster. This includes hanging out in the vehicle.
· Other than siblings, no scout may transport another scout.
Under these circumstances, scouts and their parents need to be aware that they are not officially participating in a BSA-sanctioned event until their arrival at the activity location and may not be covered under BSA insurance.
Herb Strain suggested a new policy regarding alcohol in Troop 10 activities it was voted to accept the following:
Under no circumstances will Troop 10 tolerate the use of Alcohol or Illegal Drugs by any Scout or Adult prior to or during Troop activities.
