OOPS!! No Court of Honor Tuesday!!

Posted on Sep 1 2014 - 5:01pm

I am sorry to say that with the start of school and other things taking primary attention....I am not ready for a Court of Honor....
It has been postponed until September 16....
This Tuesday,
we may have some prospective members show up from a school round-up. So after putting up the tents left to dry out,
the scouts will be doing some knot-tying and possibly fire-starting, depending on weather.
Ready to advance:
Several boys are ready for Scoutmaster Conferences and possible Board of Reviews if we have enough adults to stay and run them:
Shaun is up for Life, Patrick is up for Star, and Nick & AJ are both up for Tenderfoot.
Austin has to recite oath,law, motto and slogan and then he will be ready for Tenderfoot.
Clemson MBU is soon upon us (Sept 13)
I will be sending in the payment this weekend, so if you haven't given your $10 yet, please do so Tuesday night.
We will be picking up popcorn early Saturday morning(9/6) and will start selling that day....
Roxanna is heading this year's sales, so be sure to check with her for when you can sell.
