News:  (updated as the info comes in)  
bullet

Please join me in congratulating Jakob Nypaver for passing his Eagle Scout Rank Board of Review on Monday, November 3, 2014

bullet

Registration for 2015 will take place in November.  If you have money in your scout account to cover it, we'll register you.  If you don't, we'll send an email to arrange payment.  Cost to re-register is $33 without Boy's Life, $44 with Boy's Life. If you want to pay by cash or check, that's OK too.  Payable to "Troop 652".

When BSA changed their registration fee from $15 to $25, we dropped the Boy's Life subscription requirement in order to keep the cost the same.

Scout Parents:

I found a brief summary describing how parents can be involved in their son's scouting experience - scan down the left to see what best describes your situation, then scan the possibilities for your involvement. Click Here.

Pages extracted from the "Scout Parenting Book"

We'll need some parent/adult volunteers to learn the Committee positions from the current people so that we won't lose any knowledge as people graduate from the troop.  We need to "Be Prepared."  We'll probably schedule a parent meeting to ask for people to staff committee positions and "events" (like Popcorn, Brecksville Home Days Pop Sale and Summer Camp Family Night dinner) and putting outings together like the Gettysburg trip, etc.)

Youth Protection Training

You do not have to be a registered member or have a member ID to take Youth Protection training. To take Youth Protection training go to MyScouting.org and create an account. From the MyScouting.org portal, click on E-Learning and take the Youth Protection training.

Upon completion, you may print a certificate of completion to submit with a volunteer application or submit the completion certificate to the unit leader for processing at the local council.

When your volunteer application is approved, you will receive a BSA membership card which includes your member ID number. After you receive your membership card, log back into MyScouting, click on My Profile and update the system by inputting your member ID number. This will link your Youth Protection training records, and any other training, in MyScouting to your BSA membership.

Welcome new scout Matthew B. and Anthony C. who crossed over from Pack 652 on Friday, February 21st.

bullet

Welcome new scouts Tom A., Brian C., and Ethan M. 

 

Welcome new scouts.  Remember to:

1. Register, (I can't transfer your records to the troop after March) 

2. Go over the Youth Protection insert in the front of your book with a parent,

3. Practice your "Scout" rank must-know's (just like Arrow of Light)

4. Part A Health form ( which lists "things we might need to know" and who we should call in case of an emergency.

5. See the "Getting Started with Troop 652" page

 

Mr. Jack Wygonski will be issuing troop tents in April & May.  There's a form that goes with the tents saying that you'll return the tent in good condition when you leave the troop or you'll pay $50 toward helping to replace the tent.  A parent must read and sign the form in addition to the scout signing it.

 

All of the new scouts should earn their "Scout" rank as quickly as possible.  Please  remember to go over the youth protection stuff in the front of the book with a parent or guardian!   Practice the other requirements and ask for a Scoutmaster Conference!

 

All new scouts should have received a video DVD showing how to do all the requirements through first class rank.  

 

The Patrol box maintenance instructions have finally been posted.

2010 Summit County is now also a "Quarantine" county.  This should mean that we can take firewood from Cuyahoga County into Summit County (Manatoc, for example) and back.
2006 Emerald Ash Borer Notice for Firewood
Cuyahoga County has been added to the quarantine list for the Emerald Ash Borer.  No non-coniferous firewood (hardwood) is to leave a quarantined area under any circumstances.   Do not to take any firewood out to Beaumont or Manatoc/Butler or Avery Hand.    Non-coniferous means any hardwood but would not include pine.)  Current updated information is available at: ohioagriculture.gov/eab
