Multiple updates from this years PLC Retreat and upcoming Announcements

Hello Troop 648,

I want to put in one e-mail some updates and information for those not available to receive it this weekend from the PLC Retreat. As you all are aware the next group of leaders have been selected and met this weekend to plan the Troop’s next year (October 2019 – September 2020) of fun and exciting camp outings and meetings ( A huge thanks to Mr. Benyi for planning, organizing and executing the weekend – not to mention the ice cream Saturday Night). Those have already been uploaded to Scoutbook (Thank you Dr Komar). I will have those outings and Meeting Months available tomorrow night on the white board at the meeting.

Since we had a PLC Meeting Sunday Morning, we will not be having one tomorrow night. Also since we had an adult/leader meeting Sunday (Also known as the Troop Activity Committee Meeting – TAC Meeting) we will not be meeting next Tuesday.

A big thanks goes out to the Scouts from last week’s meeting who went above and beyond the call of duty and helped us move all of our Troop Meeting gear to our new and improved meeting place. Which leads me to my next announcement…..we have a new and improved meeting place. Tomorrow’s meeting will be held in “The Forum”. This is the building that our previous meeting place was held (South side of the CCC Campus), but in the “South” room. The meetings will be held there….until we need to move again (which shouldn’t be for a long while).

Here are some quick items that were discussed at the PLC Retreat:

We are going to continue the Patrol method and Meeting assignments (this will be posted all year)

We are going to work on the Chain of Command in the Troop.

We are going to start including time for Patrol competitions and points awarded to the winning patrols, as well as points for attendance at meetings, outings and service events (10 points to Gryffindor!!!!!)

There will be a trial of a “No Cell Phone Policy” for meetings and outings as directed by your leadership Council

Thanks for making it all the way to the end of these updates. Thanks again for everyone that was involved and look forward to seeing everyone soon.

Mr Blair

Troop 648 Scoutmaster
