Welcome Back Troop Meeting - Sunday, August 14th

Posted by fsaenz on Aug 10 2022 - 10:56pm

Dear Troop,

Welcome back! This Sunday, August 14 is our first Troop meeting of the new term. Here's a quick summary of what we will be doing and the attire:

  • As it is tradition, during the first meeting after the summer break we are allowed to wear Class B or Class C uniforms. Class B is our regular troop yellow t-shirts. Class C is any other summer camp, winter camp, High Adventure, or any other BSA shirt. The rest of the attire is still the same, Scout pants/shorts, Scout socks, belt, and closed toed shoes. We’ll resume Class A in the second meeting.
  • We will also be having our Patrol Leader Elections, so if you would like to run, be there!
  • The ASPL of instruction, Lucas Soares, will be conducting a really cool activity for everyone.
  • Finally, we will do a little bit of planning for our next campout (Aqua Adventures!) but no meal planning required.

That is all I have for you guys right now. I am excited to see all of you there!

Yours In Scouting,

Nicholas Saenz, SPL
