Grub Money Policy

There has been an issue over the past few years with Grubmasters not getting paid for the food that they purchase. I discussed this last week with the PLC and we are going to do the following:

  • Each Scout will bring an envelope with $20 cash and the Scout’s name on the envelope to the meeting on THIS Tuesday, September 13th. This money will be kept in the safe in the office.
  • The Tuesday before each campout the Grubmaster from each Patrol will be given the money from the envelopes of each Scout from their Patrol that is going on that campout to use to purchase food.
  • After the campout the Grubmaster will divide the cost of the food by the number of Scouts going on the campout  and provide how much it cost for each Scout. The Grubmaster will place an equal amount of the left over money in each of the envelopes of the Scouts that went.
  • After the campout each Scout that went on the campout will replenish their envelope with the amount needed to bring back a balance of $20.

Troop 2016 Advancement Guidelines

As I have stated previously, the requirements for all of the Ranks have changed effective January 1, 2016. 2016 will be a transition year. Scouts that joined prior to January 1, 2016 may switch to the new requirements now or may continue on the old requirements until they reach First Class or their next Rank. Scouts that joined in 2016 must start using the new requirements. Effective January 1, 2017 every Scout must switch to the new requirements.

I have created guidelines for our Troop on who can sign off each requirement and what is expected for each requirement. I will be placing these guidelines on the Troop website in the Advancement Section for each Rank. The complete set of guidelines can be found below. Please let me know if you have any questions.
