2017/06/09 Meeting Recap

Hello Troop 395! Today I have a recap of Thursday's meeting.

For those who have not yet turned in health forms for summer camp, you can turn them in at the yearly planning meeting. You can also turn them in at the troop meetings unless you are going the first week of summer camp. The yearly planning meeting is in the Living Word Church from 1-6pm. It will be held in the room where we normally have PLCs. For those who don't know which room that is, it is the one at the end of the hall with the large table and rolling chairs with the door usually open. Anyone can come to the yearly planning meeting, not just leadership. Please come with campout, service, or meeting ideas. If not, then you can take notes and alert your patrol of what's ahead. Please wear class B to the yearly planning meeting.

For those of you who usually go to Mr. Colter for advancements, you only need to see him for a Scout Master Conference or blue card. If you had a conversation with him about advancements that can be explained to the ASM. You can use Mr. Colter as a witness if need be.

This meeting we went over how to pack for summer camp. If you want the list, then refer to Zack's email sent several hours ago. We also explained the swim test, which is needed to be passed for the swimming merit badge and First Class. This test goes as follows for those of you who want to practice before summer camp:
Jump in the pool feet first.
Complete three laps freestyle(which apparently isn't what you think freestyle would be. It's apparently an actual style of swimming).
Complete one lap using the back stroke.
Float until the director tells you to stop.

That's all for now. But remember, Spider-Man Homecoming will be released July 7th!
