TROOP 282 September 18th Meeting and other IMPORTANT ANNOUNCEMENTS

Plans for Rendezvous will fully be put into place. It should be an exciting time. I have seen that the crew is putting together chunking devices. Should be a lot of fun to attend. See you at troop this week.

SCOUT PARENTS please come into circle at 8:15 for every meeting to hear announcements and sign up for activities. It is a very busy fall for our troop and we want to get updated information to you at the meetings! Thank you.



Individual advancement reports will be passed out to all scouts this Tuesday, September 18th. These are printed for convenience so parents and scouts can quickly see where they’re at on their progress toward ranks and badges, and have enough time to address any discrepancies or finish up what they’re working on before the next Court of Honor on October 16th. If your scout won’t be there on Sept. 18th, please let me know and I can get his copy to you via email. Scouts should note that October 2nd is the last week to have a Scoutmaster conference, and October 9th is the last week to have a board of review before Court of Honor. October 9th is also the last week to turn in any completed blue cards for merit badges.

If you have any questions, please don’t hesitate to let me know!



I will have candy bars and meat sticks available for pick up on Tuesday September 18th.

I have a couple extra if you neglected to ask for some or I can get restocked on September 28.

Rather than hauling the boxes in, I will be distributing from my white van in the parking lot starting around 6:45.

Please let me know if you would like to schedule a booth sale.

Deb Watts will have Papas Pizza flyers at the meeting please see her to check some out.

Brandon Gamble Eagle Project: September 23rd

Scoutbook Class Recap

Parents and leaders of Troop 282,

I just want to say THANK YOU to the all the parents and leaders who showed up for Tuesday night’s Scoutbook class! I really appreciated your support, your genuine interest, and your helpful feedback!

If you missed the class, I will be presenting virtually all the same information at October’s Round Table meeting on Thursday, October 4th, at 7:00pm, at the LDS church on North Danebo. As always, Round Tables are always open to all parents and leaders!

A few reminders from the class:

  • Parents, please bring me your child’s partial merit badges! I’d love to help you get their completed requirements in the system so that your scout can easily view their progress, and reference what they have left to finish!
  • Parents, please add your child’s photo in Scoutbook. This is both for convenience for things like record keeping and attendance taking, but also to help other scouts, parents, and leaders learn your child’s name (*points to self*). If you’d prefer, I’d be happy to snap a quick photo of your child on a Tuesday and update their photo for you, upon your request.
  • Leaders, please update your photo as well, so newer scouts and parents can have an easier time of learning who’s who. I’m also happy to take a quick snapshot and update your photo for you any Tuesday if you want. ๐Ÿ™‚
  • Parents and leaders, please remember to be working off of CURRENT rank requirements for your scout (which are always up-to-date in Scoutbook for your convenience), unless you make special arrangements with myself or Mr. Altmiller otherwise.
  • If you want to subscribe to our troop’s calendar with your personal electronic calendar (iCal, Outlook, Google), here’s the link to our Scoutbook calendar: If you want help figuring out how to do this, please let me know!

A few things I forgot to mention in the class:

  • If you have an older scout with their own e-mail address, who would like to have access to their Scoutbook account, you may connect them to their account by going to your child’s "edit profile" page, scroll to the very bottom, then click the big red "invite to connect" button.
  • There are several "quick entry" menus available to leaders, which also allow leaders to check off requirements for multiple scouts at once. This is a feature which may come in handy as we get more familiar with how to incorporate Scoutbook in the operations and management of our troop. If you are a leader and would like more information on what you can do with these "quick entry" menus or how to use them, please let me know.
  • One other optional feature Scoutbook has built in is the ability to manage payments and charges to Individual Scout Accounts (funds). I have not investigated or tested this feature, nor can I vouch for how functional/convenient it is. But the idea of having this information available to families at the touch of a button is intriguing, so I just wanted to put it out there as a potential option. If this is something anyone would like our troop to look into, please share your feedback with myself, Karen (our treasurer), or Paul (committee chair). Thanks!

Answers to a few questions that came up in class:

  • Is there a way in the calendar menu to find out who’s planning on going to a campout, for logistics and coordination? YES, there is! Leaders with calendar privileges can edit an event and "RSVP" which scouts are going, which are then visible for all to see. This is not something we’ve been doing regularly, but we could do in the future. If this would be useful to you, please share your feedback with myself, Bill (scoutmaster), James B, or Scott (our assistant scoutmasters), and let us know. Also, if you are a leader and would like permission to be able to edit events and add RSVP’s, let me know so I can assign you those permissions in Scoutbook. Thanks!
  • In the messaging menu, is there a way for [non-leader] parents to send messages to other parents? There should be! After all, your scout, if they have their own account set up, has the ability to message other [non-leader] parents, so I think you should, too! I am working on getting an answer to this from the helpful Scoutbook support staff, and will let you know. ๐Ÿ™‚
