The Great Frederick Fair Parking Lot Fundraiser (September 15 – 23th) sign-ups begin July 10th

Posted on Jul 18 2017 - 8:50pm

Troop 1998 again this year will volunteer for this opportunity to man a couple of the parking lots during the Great Frederick Fair in September 2017. Currently we are planning for the schedule to be similar to last year with both scout and adult volunteers needed to cover both day and evening shifts for the entire 9 days of the fair. We hope to gain support from the ENTIRE troop to manage this rigorous schedule, so please mark your calendar and plan ahead to help us out. Remember, volunteer hours 1st go to satisfying the annual 5 hour minimum/ scout obligation to the troop before any remaining proceeds go into scout accounts.

New Rank Criteria:

Posted on Jun 20 2016 - 6:05pm

In case you were not already aware, BSA has changed some of the rank advancement requirements beginning in January 2016. It is my understanding that scouts new to scouting this year are required to follow these new requirements (hence the “new” scout book) where as existing scouts (joined before 2016) have this year to be grand fathered into the new requirements. Either way, please see the attached pdf document for a snap shot of what you need to know moving forward. The fileis courtesy of the AT District Commissioner via facebook and shared with us thru Becky Stalnaker.
