Thursday Jan 14th meeting topic - Cooking Merit Badge

Posted by dave.pallozzi on Jan 10 2021 - 3:57pm

SCOUTS!!!!    This week's meeting is going to focus on the 'talking parts" of the Cooking Merit Badge.  This is an Eagle Required Merit Badge and many of you have done alot the actual cooking parts and we just need to finish up the talking parts.  Scouts, please review the requirements in Scoutbook for the Cooking Merit Badge before this week's meeting.  Also, if you still have the 'cook for mom & dad' cooking parts to do, this is a great time of year to knock those pieces out.  

Parents of Troop 808 - Happy New Year - Welcome to 2021 - Please Read

Posted by dave.pallozzi on Jan 10 2021 - 3:56pm

I know we have all been awaiting the New Year in hope that 2021 will certainly be better than the pandemic year of 2020.  As I believe many of you know, the troop is smaller in 2021; we had at least 4 scouts age out, after 3 of them achieved Eagle Rank (Congrats to them) and we had 3 scouts move to other troops to better fit their personal schedules and needs (we wish them success).  In addition we are still in need of an active Scoutmaster.  While I am trying to fill both the Committee Chair and 'acting' scoutmaster role, it is becoming more difficult as my non-scouting responsibilities need more attention.  Therefore we need ALL the parents of the remaining scouts to become more active in the troop.  We need help with meeting ideas and running meetings.  We are only meeting twice a month currently so it would not be overwhelming for any of you to run a few meetings.  We also need you as parents to actively participate in your son's rank advancement needs.  You can help your scout by jointly logging into Scoutbook to see where they stand, what requirements do they need to complete and what merit badges would they like to work on.  To do this for you son is pretty easy, whereas for me to try to do it with 7 scouts is much more complicated and time consuming.

    3. Split Decisions
    4. Two Kinds of Stupid
  5. As an individual or patrol, use the EDGE method and the Student Project Kit to teach Internet safety rules, behavior, and “netiquette” to your troop or another patrol. You are encouraged to use any additional material and information you have researched. Each member of the patrol must have a role and present part of the lesson.
  6. Discuss with your unit leader the acceptable standards and practices for using allowed electronic devices such as phones and games at your meetings and other Scouting events.

Note: All Cyber Chips will expire annually. Each Scout will need to go to Netsmartz  and complete 2 new resources (ie watch 2 videos)  to recommit to net safety and netiquette. Then, with the unit leader, the Scout can add the new date to the Cyber Chip card or certificate.
