Lots of great stories and adventures from Summer Camp and Jamboree. Congratulations to all who went to either for a great summer scouting adventure. If you didn't go, why not? Plan on Summer Camp next year, Great adventures with the troop between now and then, and the next Jamboree in three short years!

In preparation for the great adventures to come with the troop next year, there is a planning meeting this Sunday August 15 at Mr. Slicker's house. The meeting is at 3:00. Youth leadership that would like to attend should contact Mr Slicker at tslckr@gmail.com .

The PLC scheduled for Thursday night is cancelled.

Mrs. Coffey would like to plan an AT hike on Columbus day weekend. She her at a troop meeting for more details.

Eric D's Eagle ceremony is scheduled for August 22nd at 3:00. We will practice next Tuesday.

The trip to Eagle Point is at the end of this month. We need commitments from scouts and leaders to make sure this happens. Many hands make light work!

Many of you may know Robin Chandler or her son Travis from various District or Council scouting activities. Robin's Husband and Travis' father Howard S. "Sammy" Chandler passed away on August 7th. Please keep Robin, Travis and the rest of their family in your thoughts and prayers.

Advice from the Scoutmaster: (Thanks Mr. Cloe!) Great Camping experiences this summer - Summer Camp and Jamboree. This only happens with great participation from Scouts and Leaders: Keep up the Momentum!

Upcoming Events:

· 8/15 - Planning Meeting

· 8/22 – Eric D's Eagle Scout Court of Honor

· 8/27-29 - Kick Back Camping Trip (Probably Eagle Point)

· 7/20-7/26 2011 SEABASE!

Please remember that Troop meetings start promptly at 7:30. Leaders are there from about 7:15 and Scouts can gather and take advantage of this time to talk to the leaders. If you are leaving the meeting early, please make sure the scoutmaster or an assistant scoutmaster know you are leaving so we won’t go looking for you.
