Popcorn Sales Status and Update

We did pretty well with the sale but we do still have popcorn to get rid of. We have 24 bags of the grab and go caramel corn for $10.00 each. IF WE DO NOT SELL THESE THE TROOP WILL ABSORB THE COST. I will have them with me at the meetings to sell, so please consider buying them.. we do take credit cards.

I placed the second order for the items needed to fill the take orders. and will have them with the show and sale orders at Thursday night’s meeting ready to be picked up. I was short two items for Billy Hayden, so they will arrive in a few weeks. Thanks for your participation.

11/13-15/15 Patrol Camping / Camp Saffron in Broadcreek

Description: This is a PATROL OUTING, where each individual Patrol has and retains their autonomy for their own trip. Where it’s different, is, a single location was selected with the space to allow for each Patrol to spread out to have their own trip.

Goal: ASM Ken Karlic to work with the Trip SPL, Bobby Fitzgerald, as much as is feasible, and coach him in organizing the trip (the stuff adults now do), and all subsequent communications and decisions be made using the Patrol Method. Patrol Advisors may want to talk with Patrol Leaders and Patrol to begin some planning.
Final headcount necessary by Thursday’s meeting 10/29, with permission slips. Information will be added to the outing page at
More to come…

There will be a camping trip to New York City December 4-6. Yes, you read that right. Camp Pouch is the ONLY Boy Scout Camp inside NYC, on Staten Island. Just one (free) ferry ride away from Manhattan. This is a fun trip for adults (leaders, dads, moms) and youth alike, at a festive time of year. Please plan to join the troop on this one. Permission forms available soon.

Stem Merit Badge Classes, November 6

The Baltimore Robotics Center is pleased to announce it will be running instruction classes for the “Robotics”, “Game Design” and “Signs, Signals & Codes” merit badges on Sunday, November 8th.

This is the first time we’ve offered “Signs, Signals and Codes” merit badge instruction and we are excited to be bringing this new merit badge to area scouts. Scouts will study the nonverbal ways we communicate, including emergency signaling, Morse code, American Sign Language, braille, trail signs, sports officiating hand signals, traffic signs, secret codes and more. This badge even covers emoticons.

The classes are designed to take the whole time period, so don’t sign up a scout for more than one merit badgeplease.

Details and sign-up here…


This event is part of the Maryland STEM Festival and I expect that the sessions will sell out, so please do not delay in signing up.
