We will start the meeting 15 minutes earlier - at 7:30 PM on Nov 10, 17, 24, and Dec 1st as we prepare for the Dec 7th Kenilworth Rally. Meetings will go until 9:00 PM.
We will send home Christmas Tree Pre-Sale Tickets with your son Tuesday night. He will get instructions at the meeting but the important part to remember is there are great prizes for top sellers, he is expected to sell at least 10 tickets, and the tickets are like cash. We need $450 and the ticket stubs back. We have lots more tickets for the motivated. Very simply, the Tree Lot is the only thing we do to financially support the troop and we expect everyone to participate. I should have the Tree Lot work schedules finished by Wed orThursday and will get them out to you as soon as I can.
Remember that if your son is planning on going camping this weekend - the permission slip must be turned in no later than the end of Tuesday's meeting. The car loading planning is being done after the meeting, as we leave on Friday. Incomplete or missing forms as of Tuesday 9:00 PM will mean your scout is not going.
I am still in need of Scouts to be the Honor Guard at the Veteran's Day ceremony at the Community House on Nov 11. Email me if you would like to be part of the Honor Guard.
We have a Dec 8th Board of Review that has been added to deal with so many scouts advancing. If you will need a Board then, contact Mrs. Chung (Cilchung@aol.com).
