New Parent Orientation! April 11th

Posted on Mar 29 2017 - 3:13pm

Welcome to the new parents of Troop 511! 

To help get you up to speed on Boy Scouts and the troop, we'll be having a New Parent Orientation during the meeting on April 11th.  Given your new Scout will be learning at the First Class Emphasis training that night, it's only fair you get information as well!  I'll go through some prepared material that covers things like the Acronyms of Scouting, what Boy Lead means, the Patrol Method, Rank Advancement as well as the various programs and opportunities in the Troop and Scouting at large.  Even if you're not new and have questions. feel free to stop by.  Its going to be very informal with plenty of time for Questions and Answers.

Sign-up for the February Backpacking Campout Now

Posted on Jan 26 2017 - 2:46pm

If you plan to attend the February, please sign-up now. 

The Parks and Wildlife Department now requires an Event Attendee List be turned 10 days before the event. It can be updated when we arrive but it would really help me if it was filled out ahead of time. The headcount will also help ensure that we have enough drivers to get out there.
