*Regular meeting... Court of Honor postponed until Oct.10
****Practice for Court of Honor
****Clemson Merit Badge University: Great Day! 5 scouts went and 4 completed badge.  ****National raised recharter fee to $33 annually and Counci added $5 more for overhead expenses, so total to recharter first Tuesday in December will be $33.   $200 sales in popcorn will cover recharter.  ****We need scouts/adults to help sell popcorn on Saturdays in October.  Recharter date for next year has been changed to December, so I need money for Recharter by December 5. Scouts who sell $200 minimum will fulfill the recharter fee and troop fees (for badges, etc). After $200, the scout then earns towards camping activity fees and trips. Annual plans include two ambitious trips, Yorktown in Charleston and a Spring Break to Washington D.C. The more popcorn sold, the more you earn, not to mention prizes offered.    ***Next outing being planned is a ropes course trip....stay tuned for details........
