Happy New Year to all scouts and families!
We have two events that follow hot on the heels of this Wednesday’s Troop night that we’d like to share with you. Details for both events are in the attached PDF. Please discuss these with your scout(s) as we will be collecting names of those planning to attend each of these events at this coming troop night.
On Saturday 9th January we will be holding a First Aid Merit Badge event where scout will be able to earn the Eagle-required First AID MB and the first aid requirements for rank advancement.
On Sunday 17th January, we’ll be having a scouting skills workshop where scouts can work on many requirements for Tenderfoot, 2nd class and first class ranks. This will be the only opportunity to complete many requirements for advancement before the next Court of Honour.
Boy-led troop: Troop Guides are expected to attend the scouting skills workshop and are welcome to attend 1st Aid. Other older scouts who want to lead the development of the skills of the newer scouts of the troop will also be welcome to attend either event – there will be the opportunity for Star Scouts to earn Life Scout Requirement 6.
Note that the requirement numbers refer to the new centennial handbook. Details of the changes in the new handbook and transition are on the troop website.
