Troop Meeting Announcements for May 26 

At this meeting there were 2 announcements pertaining to rank advancement events that you should attend if you haven’t already had these items signed off.  The first is for 2nd Class requirement 1a & b.  This 5 mile hike only happens twice a year, so all boys at the Scout and Tenderfoot Rank should try and attend the hike, which is tentatively scheduled for Sunday, June 5th in the afternoon.

  1. 2nd Class requirements 1a & b:

a) Demonstrate how a compass works and how to orient a map. Explain what map symbols mean.

b) Using a compass and a map together, take a 5-mile hike (or 10 miles by bike) approved by your adult leader and your parent or guardian.

The other requirement is tentatively scheduled to occur at next weeks scout meeting.  It is 1st Class requirement 5.  Mr. Esposito will be speaking to the scouts for this requirement.  Again, this doesn’t happen that often, so please try and attend.

  1. Visit and discuss with a selected individual approved by your leader (elected official, judge, attorney, civil servant, principal, teacher) your constitutional rights and obligations as a U.S. citizen.

Mr. Barry Rusnock provided the scouts with a brief instruction to the Climbing Merit Badge. A signup is available on the troop website and resources are available in the Document Library.
