WFA & CPR opportunity Jan 28 - 29, 2017 (Time sensitive)

Posted on Jan 3 2017 - 4:22pm

From Mike Dickerson: The Troop has been offered the opportunity to obtain Wilderness First Aid and CPR/AED training at an extremely low price (around $40 plus a small donation) by the Thurmont Community Ambulance Company on January 28 and 29.  They provide this training at cost on their day(s) off.  The EMTs and firefighters provided this training once before for adults prior to the Maine Trip and will be offering it again in preparation for Philmont.  We have a minimum required coverage for this training in order to leave basecamp, so those attending Philmont will have priority (adults and youth).  However, this training is open to anybody in the Troop.  The maximum class size is 15.

Assume that this training will take the entire day on Saturday and Sunday (we haven’t set a start time yet).  You will need to pack a lunch and possibly a light dinner or snack if it goes late.  It will be a very busy two days to get everything done, so please make sure you can pay attention for the entire time.

I apologize for the short notice, but TCAC needs to order the instructional materials soon and I just spoke to them this evening.  So, I’d like to get as many signups as possible by January 16.  A few extra adds or drops after that point will be OK, but I’d like to get the bulk of the responses by then.

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.
