First Class Skills

Posted by jbungerspiecha on Oct 21 2016 - 12:37pm
During the coming year, our Troop will emphasis First Class Skills.   Our goal is to ensure every scout is proficient at the basic scout craft skills outlined in the first four ranks - Scout, Tenderfoot, Second and First Class.  We propose to reinforce these skills though instructor activities, scoutmaster challenges, one-on-one work with scouts and review sessions prior to a scout's official scoutmaster conference.  
Reece Lenaz, a Life Scout and a Troop Instructor, is offering one-on-one advancement help to any scout who asks.  Attached is a flyer with information and his contact information.

Before all the leaves fall, each scout is asked to assemble a personal leaf collection. Each leaf should be taped to a piece of notebook paper with the tree's common name written below the leaf.  Collections can be as large as the scout desires, but should include leaves from the trees listed below. Download the free Leafsnap app to your smart phone for help identifying trees in the field.
