Attention Troop 1998 - Josh Turney needs your help collecting books for his Eagle Scout Project

Posted on Oct 17 2016 - 1:36pm
I have begun my Eagle Project and I am in need of your help! If you have any books at home that you do not use anymore, please bring them into any troop meeting from now until October 24th. All donations will be accepted, so bring everything that you'd like to get rid of as soon as you can! I am looking to collect 400 books, and I have gotten generous donations from troop members that have brought my total number of books to about 150! 

Let's keep the donations coming! If you're a scout, make sure it's OK with your parents before you donate books to me.
If you're in need of service hours please contact me, I may have opportunities for you to earn hours for rank advancements. My e-mail is listed below. (No official date/time has been made to earn service hours yet, but if you're interested don't hesitate to contact me.)

Troop 1998 Fall Fundraiser "Gianni’s the Best of the Brands" (Fundraiser goes into scout accounts!)

Posted on Oct 3 2016 - 10:16pm
This fundraiser is a GREAT opportunity to build up those scout accounts to pay for campouts, activities, dues (coming up before the end of the year - and council raised dues!) or to start saving for next year's summer camps!
Pick up order forms from Tina Wolfes on Monday night or use the attached PDF. I've also attached a scanned copy of the order form.

Forms, fees, and proof of YPT renewal is due to Troop Registrar Ian Slade by Monday October 24th, 2016

Last month we announced that the Catoctin Mountain District and the Appalachian Trail District are now one district again and reverting back to be titled the Francis Scott Key District (FSK). This makes our recharter process including up to date Youth Protection Training (YPT) ever so critical.

Personal Management Merit Badge (Eagle Required):

Posted on Jun 20 2016 - 6:08pm

Mr. Tom Mac Phee (assisted by Mr. Dan Kmiecik) is offering the Personal Management merit badge this fall. The badge will be comprised of at least 4 sessions beginning on Sunday September 11th in the afternoon and will run every other Sunday into October. These sessions will be offered outside of the regular troop meetings, so scouts need to make a commitment of time to get this done. Attendance is required for all 4 sessions and there will be homework! A sign up sheet will be available on the troop table beginning Monday June 20th. Space will be limited. See Mr. MacPhee for any questions

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.
