Merit Badge University registration starts TOMORROW
I hope that you all had a wonderful President’s Day holiday! I put a lot of scheduling details for the upcoming month in my message last week. Please go to that message and mark your calendars for all of our upcoming events.
We will continue work on Communications at our Scout meeting tomorrow, Monday, February 23 at 7pm at Trinity Lutheran Church. Mr. Lukas will be leading the meeting as I will be out of town.
Our Troop will be holding Order of the Arrow elections on Monday, March 16. Please make a point to attend this meeting, as we can only hold that election if at least half of our registered boys are in attendance. In addition, if you have received a message from me that you are eligible for election to the Order, please make a point to let me know if you want your name on the ballot by the end of this month.
Our Troop Lock-In is this weekend! We will begin swimming at the Natatorium at 6pm on Friday and the Lock-In will begin at the church at 8pm. More details about the lock-in will be discussed at our meeting tomorrow. Please be at the meeting to discuss these details!
Finally, I hope that you all are excited about Merit Badge University next month! Online registration for MBU starts TOMORROW. If you are going, I need to know what merit badge classes you want to take. The list of classes, the schedule and other details is available at http://meritbadgeu.wordpress.com. Mr. Adams will have a sign-up form at the meeting tomorrow; I need your attendance commitment for the event as soon as possible. Some of the more interesting classes (Scuba, Welding, Horsemanship!) are likely to fill up early. The sooner you let me know what you want to take, the sooner I can get you registered.
Have a great Scouting week!
