I also have some important updates from last week’s meeting. Some positions are already decided. These positions are: Bianca as scribe, Nora as instructor, Sam as instructor. The rest are still being determined for some certain notice as come up. Harrison is my Assistant Senior Patrol Leader but as of recently, he has to step down because he has his priorities set on schoolwork. It was great working with him as he gave me suggestions, pushed me further, and has accomplished tasks that I asked of him.

Yours in Scouting,

Jeffrey Gomez

Agenda for Tuesday, January 8

Happy New Year!

It is 2019 and I have messed up on my dates already. Many of us want to start off fresh and wish for a better future. To answer this calling, the troop will have more positions after this upcoming meeting

7:00-7:05 | Opening
7:05-7:25 | Presentations of the 6 positions
7:25-7:35 | Ask for candidates (each scout must sign up for 2 preferred positions)
7:35-8:00 | Discussion TBD

Put in your calendars that February 5 will be a COH! We are half way into the year and it is about time that scouts get what they have earned. I will also ask for a MC and have the scout review and adjust the script in the following weeks.

February draws near as such as the trip for it. There will be announcement for it and preparations for the trip will soon come.

Lastly, there will be an advancement session on the 15th. Everyone will need their books then and get as many requirements done as you can before the COH.
