Ski Weekend: Feb 8-10, 2019

Remember to dress appropriate for the cold weather on the slopes.  Dress in layers, wear comfortable clothes that allow for movement, with an outer waterproof layer to keep you dry.

Merit Badge Pamphlets

If you’re thinking of working on a Merit Badge, but aren’t quite sure where to start, you may want to check out Troop 22’s on-line Merit Badge Pamphlet archive.

Merit Badge Pamphlets Archive

Please be advised that the BSA is constantly updating Merit Badge requirements, so some of these pamphlets might not have the most current information.  To be sure you may want to check out the most up-to-date requirements as found on Scouting.org

BSA Merit Badge Requirements

And finally, you may want to go over to MeritBadge.org and download the merit badge worksheet – just remember filling out the worksheet doesn’t mean you have completed the merit badge requirements.  The worksheets are a great tool to keep track of what work you completed for each requirement and as handy notes to be used when discussing what you have done with your Merit Badge Counselor (you can find an updated list of MB Counselors in the Troop Forms section of this website).

Cheap Camping Gear!

If anyone is looking to save a few bucks on camping gear, you may want to check out some of the below deals that are currently available on Craigslist.

I’ve purchased a lot of gear off of Craiglist in the last couple of years…the trick is to do your homework and know what the items are worth new and make sure you’re getting a good deal based on the condition the item is in.

Another tip I found to be useful – tell them you’re buying it for an active Boy Scout…a lot of these sellers are former Boy Scouts and will usually give you a better deal if they know the item will get some good use.

Troop & Patrol Meeting Planners

If you look in the Troop Forms page of this website you will notice 2 new documents that have been uploaded for our Scouts to use when planning Troop and Patrol Meetings.

The Troop Meeting Plan and Patrol Meeting Agenda are very useful forms that will help the SPL, ASPLs, PLs plan more productive, efficient, meaningful and enjoyable meetings.

Going forward, all PLs should have a Patrol Meeting Agenda completed and in-hand at every Troop Meeting.  If you have any questions or concerns as to how to use these agendas, please see either the SPL or one of the ASPLs.
