Troop Parent Survey

While the youth leaders run the troop, there's a whole slew of positions behind the scenes to help make what the boys plan each year come to fruition. The Troop Committee is looking for parents to help support service projects, merit badge classes, fund-raising, camp outs and other important activities that support our boys. 

Please take a moment to complete the Parent SurveyThe Troop Committee will compile the feedback and contact you for your support. Remember, the Scout you help may be your own. ;)

Do you want to earn service hours towards rank advancement or a merit badge? Then you can serve as a Boy Scout staff member at the Golden Arrow District "Twilight Camp".

Blue Card Signatures

Posted on Apr 7 2017 - 11:33am

Make Sure You Get Those Signatures

Recently Scouts have been attending MB courses and have not confirmed that the MB counselors have fully completed the "blue cards" before leaving the class.

Scouts, remember it is your responsibility to make sure:

 1) The Scoutmaster has signed off on the front of the card before you begin work on the MB (see green box in top graphic).

 2) All requirements have been signed off with the date of completion by the counselor (see red boxes in top graphic).

 3) On the back of the card, the section with the counselor's information is completely filled out. This is important to make sure we can contact the counselor if we have questions (see red boxes in bottom graphic).

 4) On the back of the card, make sure the middle portion is completely filled out. This must be done fully in order to give credit for the MB (see red boxes in bottom graphic).

5) The last step is to have the Scoutmaster sign the back of the blue card (see yellow box).

If you don't have a completed blue card you can expect it to take longer to get credit, so please make sure you follow this example. If you have any issues with your MB counselor be sure to contact the Scoutmaster.

Requirements Changes for 2017

Posted on Mar 17 2017 - 11:44am

BSA Publishes Rank Page Inserts

Starting in 2017 all Scouts will need to use the new requirements published by BSA in 2016. Any "old" requirements that have been completed will credited, but the new 2016 requirements will apply and will also need to be completed to achieve rank.

You DO NOT need to buy a new Scout Handbook. You can download and print off a copy of the new requirements for each rank here and put them in your handbook. For details about the requirements change and timeline for implementation click here.
