Good morning Scouts, Parents, and Leaders,
We are getting ready to submit another order for our 90th anniversary commemorative t-shirts. If you would like to get another shirt or your first shirt, if you did not go to summer camp, please turn in your size required with your name to your Patrol Leader by next Monday.
Adults wishing to get another shirt please just send me an email or get with me next Monday night. I will collect Patrol roll ups from the patrol leaders starting next week.
The shirts cost $7.50 and I will need that no later than shirt delivery.
Thank you all and have a great rest of your week!
— Assistant Scoutmaster, Troop 103
Attached is the permission slip for our November Camping Trip. Permission slips are due back to your patrol leader November 3, 2014.
This is one of the funnest trips of the year, GREAT food and deserts, the largest campfire of the year, and some of the best views in this part of Virginia. This is one of the great trips of the years and one that everyone remembers as they move through scouts!
Parents and siblings are invited to join us for coffee, hot chocolate, and all sorts of deserts from 7:00 to 7:45 (or so). Then join us for our annual Thanksgiving bonfire for songs, skits, and stories.
— Scoutmaster, Troop 103
A MESSAGE FOR REGISTERED ADULTS OF TROOP 103:
Last month, Colonial Virginia Council put in place a policy that modifies how we submit our annual Recharter package in December. We must now submit proof that EVERY adult volunteer registered with Troop 103 (if you submitted a BSA Adult Application to the Troop 103 Committee, then you are a registered adult) has completed Youth Protection Training such that the training WILL NOT EXPIRE in calendar year 2015.
Stated another way: the Colonial Virginia Executive Committee now requires every registered adult to complete Youth Protection Training EVERY CALENDAR YEAR. It requires the Troop to provide a current training certificate for EVERY registered adult as part of the annual Troop Recharter process.
I hope you all are having success with your popcorn sales — besides drying out from the canoe trip this weekend. I will be at the meeting tomorrow night with POPCORN and will be taking orders. Keep up the good work with selling and remember to say "Thank You" even if the customer does not make a purchase.
— Popcorn Kernel, Troop 103
