    The University of Scouting is THE place to be! With more than 60 classes to choose from that range from the beginning leader/Cub Scout parent to Boy Scout leader/veteran Venture Crew advisor, or a youth in a leadership role, you are assured of finding the help you are looking for! University of Scouting is a one day supplemental training that offers everything from the most basic Leader Specific training to more advanced sessions. This year will feature lots of new and exciting classes designed to help you, the unit leader, take your unit to the next level of program.
  • Feb/Mar – Disability Awareness clinic/hockey game
  • Fundraising – Tara Hampton
    • Camp cards will be available at the end of January.
      Sales will go into April
    • Pine straw sales
      Purchase price of bales went up 10 cents → $3.75 a bale
      We will sell the bales for $4.75 (is that correct)
      Scout/Troop percent of profit still needs to be determined
      Church will purchase 500 bales and scouts will spread the pine straw.
      Roger will work on getting approval for this.

  • Philmont – Mark Fulcher
    • We have 12 spots available
    • 5 scouts from Troop 75 and 2-3 adults from Troop 75
    • Roger Brand will contact Troop 1776 to fill remaining spots
    • Mark Fulcher will work on setting up a schedule for prep hikes

  • Other Topics
    • Seabase 2020?
      • Nicole John has volunteered to research and provide two available options for a Seabase trip.
      • Will try and send an email out prior to our next Committee meeting to get an idea on interest.

    • Gym Games
      • Request the gym be locked prior to scout meeting, so no scouts are able to wander in unsupervised.
      • Also need to insure there are 2 adults in the gym when scouts are present.

Also need to monitor the number of balls available when playing games
i.e. if the scouts are playing basketball only basketballs should be out. Do not allow scouts to bring out volleyballs or any other type of balls in the closet.
