Good Evening, hope all is well and that everyone had a great Spring Break. We have a regular meeting tomorrow night at 7:30 pm. Please bring down your book. We will be finishing up First Aid (Please bring down your first aid kits) and and work on rank advancement as well.
As I mentioned in my previous email, we have a busy spring coming up with three Eagle Scout Service Projects correctly scheduled and two more on the way.
If you have not signed-up for camp it’s not too late or if you need to apply for a campership, money is still available.
Please see below the information about Eagle Camp,
Scouts attending camp during Week 6 will have the opportunity to earn some merit badges not typically offered at summer camp. This is due to Eagle Camp taking place at Camp Aquehonga during Week 6. The following Eagle required merit badges are expected to be offered in the morning:
Citizenship in the Community
Citizenship in the Nation
Citizenship in the World
Emergency Preparedness is expected to be offered in the afternoon.
Counselors for some of these badges will also be attending camp with Troop 106 both Week 5 and Week 6.
Scouts wishing to work on any of these badges are advised to look up the requirements on www.scouting.org. From there, click on: Skills, click on: Merit Badges and then click on: All Badges. Finally, click on the specific merit badge of interest. (Requirements can be printed out from this site)
Please be reminded that all merit badges require Scoutmaster approval before a scout can begin work with a counselor. Please be advised that many of the badges listed above will require the scouts to complete some requirements before arriving at camp or, those requirements will need to be completed following camp.
Please advise Scoutmaster Anthony Zalak as well as Jim Mckay if you plan to work on any of these badges while at camp Week 6. Jim McKay has been asked to inform the Eagle Camp staff of which badges scouts from Troop 106 plan to work on.
Also, if you have any equipment that you want engraved, please bring it down tomorrow night as Jim McKay will have his engraving machine at the meeting.
Lastly, their will be a Committee Meeting tomorrow night so if any scout needs a a board of review, please let me know.
Thanks and as always, please reach out to me with any questions or concerns.
