School and Fall are Here!
School and Fall have started! I hope that you are enjoying the beginning of your school year.
With the beginning of school, we are back to our regular schedule. Troop 26 will meet most every Monday evening at Trinity Lutheran church, except as otherwise noted. Please wear your full Class A field uniform for all meetings.
Our Patrol Leader’s Council for September will begin on 9/8 at 6pm at Trinity Lutheran. If you have a leadership position in the Troop (a patch on your arm), please make a point to attend this planning meeting. We have a lot to discuss, including Fall Camporee and planning for the rest of our Fall activities.
Our Troop meeting for September 8 will begin at 7pm. Topics include Pets Merit Bade and Dog Care Merit Badge (led by our guest, District Chair, Veterinarian and Merit Badge Counselor Dr. Peter Jennings), Fall Camporee planning and Advancement records. In preparation for the meeting, please look through the requirements for both merit badges and make sure that your book is up to date with your activities (camping and service). Please also bring any partial blue cards on which you may be working.
By the way, I just learned about this method of finding out if a regular alkaline battery is dead or not. The dead battery will bounce while the good battery will not. More on this here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=qrGV7zKEdtU#t=224
