Troop #315 Newsletter – August 2017

North Baltimore Boy Scout Troop #315 Newsletter – August 1, 2017 (written before GOST)
From the Scoutmaster

Over the past 85 years of our troops existence,  There have been a few scouts who have ramped up their activity in the troop and really embraced scouting to its fullest.  From camps to merit badges, fundraiser’s to advancement, scouts feel challenged to work together to reach their full potential as a Boy Scout.  I see that in all our troop and the following boy has done so much to achieve top rank and beyond.  You can’t help

but notice Noah Pelton and all he has done , this year, alone.  NYLT grad, Eagle with 5 palms, Jamboree attendee, Summer Camp CIT Counselor.  Employee at the National Scout shop in Findlay just to name a few.  Noah has also earned 75+ merit badges, (13 this year) Ad Alteri Dei Catholic scout award and nicknamed ” Mr. Junior Baden Powell.  He currently serve3s the troop as Junior Assistant scoutmaster.  He plans to enlist in the armed forces after graduation but also attend college . Pretty aggressive commitments from a young man.   Noah Pelton Camp to the troop at 10 1/2 years old.  Feel free to chuckle and smile at some of the great pics we have of Noah in his scout journey.

August 11-13  Retro Camp
Miakonda is having a 3rd celebration for their 100th year and this one is aimed towards scouts.  Our troop has been selected to participate in a 1950’s theme d camp.  Any scout who wants to camp that weekend will be outfitted in retro attire and sleep in canvas tents, cook over fire, and behave like ” Leave it to Beaver”.   They will feed us 2 meals so we have to cook 2 .  We have lots of brats left from GOST so it sound like that’s one of them.  Breakfast  TBA.
August 14  School Open House
We will set up a sign up booth at Powell Elementary on Monday , August 14 from 5:00pm to 7:00pm.  Any scout who wants to help recruit can come in uniform to the table.
August 20
We will return to normal meetings.  Levi Trout is the new  Senior Patrol Leader so our leadership will organize and patrols will start planning the years calendars
Committee meeting
Troop Committee,  I’d like to ask all registered if Thursday, August 31 @ 7:00pm would work to have our quarterly committee meeting.  I’d also like to see if any parents would like to consider joining.   Our troop committee basically manages the leadership and approves finance, calendar and offers support to the scoutmaster and assistants.  You are our bosses.
A bit of bad news.
The Davis Besse Nuclear Science merit badge is full.  The organizer of the camporee informed me that the sign is closed due to full capacity.  He is letting me know about the next one in spring.
