    New Advancement Requirements for 2016
    Effective January 1, 2016, BSA has changed the advancement requirements for all ranks. New books with the requirements should be available soon, but until then links to the new requirements are shown below. 

    The impacts of the new requirements are:
    • If a youth is currently in the process of completing a rank and has completed a substantial portion of the requirements, he may complete the rank using the 2015 requirements. When he begins on a new rank or if he has just begun a new rank (within the past month or so) , he will use the new ranks shown in the link above.
    • It is important for each scout to keep their current handbook intact as a record of completion up to the new requirements. They should also plan to get a copy of the new book when it becomes available to use for future advancement.
    • Most of the requirements have not changed significantly, but there are some new details and approaches that we will be following. All of these are in the document above.
    • If you have questions, please ask one of the adult leaders for clarification.

    Calendar and Planning Updates
    The troop calendar has been updated with activities and details for the spring and summer. Please review it and add these items to your family calendar. If you want to receive notifications of changes to the calendar or be able to combine the troop calendar with your own personal calendar, please send Mr. LeBaron your email address. ( The calendar is kept on Google Calendar.

    Summer Camp Planning
    Now is the time to put summer camp on the family calendar. Troop 162 will be at Camp Bud Schiele (CBS) this year from July 10 to July 16, 2016. The summer camp cost has not been set yet, but will probably be around $225.00 for the week. All scouts can benefit from the advancement opportunities that summer camp provides. More information coming, but put that date on the calendar!

    AT hikers near Charlies Bunion On Sunday, 7/26/15.

    I hope everyone is taking advantage of these special activities and doing their best to Do a Good Turn Daily!
