Dates

If an event is organized by the District or there is another reason why an event can't be moved, the event was marked with a final date.  If an event is organized by the troop, the date is final, but we have the ability to move it in a pinch.  Those were identified as 'troop event'.  Troop events likely won't move, but it's happened in the past. 

Every second Tuesday of a month, we do Boards of Review for our scouts.  These meetings are the last step for a scout to attain a rank.  The adults needed for a Board of Review cannot be people that the scouts regularly interact with so the scout leaders are excluded.  The Boards of Review for the year are scheduled in the sheet at the link above.  Please sign up for a few so we can be covered for these important meetings.
