Troop Elections

April 25th Troop Elections:

We will be holding troop elections at the April 25th troop meeting. The purpose of this election is for the scouts to select their senior scout leadership (SSL) for next year. The SSL is composed of the Senior Patrol Leader (SPL), one or more Assistant Senior Patrol Leaders (ASPL), a Quartermaster and a Scribe.

Descriptions, requirements and base expectations of each position can be found on the troop website at http://troop540bsa.org/Leadership/ScoutJobDescriptions.aspx .

If you are interested in running for one of these positions, please download a job description for your desired position, complete the application and return it to Scoutmaster Rihm no later than Sunday, April 23rd.

Shortly after the SSL elections are completed, the new SSL will meet to select patrol leaders and troop guides. So, if you are interested in serving as a patrol leader or troop guide, please review the job descriptions and submit an application to Scoutmaster Rihm by Sunday,  April 30th.

The minimum age for leadership positions is 13 and the minimum rank for leadership positions is First Class.

 

Summer Camp July 9-15

Camp June Norcross Webster (JNW) - Ashford, CT 

Cost: $405.00 If you take advantage of the “early bird”. The “early bird” is available if you register on the website and pay the $50.00 to Troop 540 by 2/14 Troop Meeting or 2/21 if by mail. If you do not take advantage of the “early bird” price (due 2/21), the price is $455.00.  A new “crossover” Scout is $405.00.  Checks are payable to Troop 540 but please contact the Troop Treasurer for exact balance which includes updated extra camp fees and Scout credits before you write the check.  The balance is due by May 9, 2017.  There MUST be a registration on the T540 website to match the payment.  There is a $100 discount for a second week of camp or a Specialty Camping Week.

Scouts: Log on to Troop Summer Camp website and sign up to attend Summer Camp so that Leadership can complete registration with Council.  Sign up for Merit Badges and other options as soon as possible!  ANY questions about what you should sign up for, please contact Mr Cannon.

The most significant issue regarding Summer Camp each and every year is the necessity to complete the Annual Health Forms. The forms will be available on the Troop website.  Timely completion of the health forms insure your scout is able to attend camp!  ANY delays will cause participation issues. 

 For more information on any of the Summer Camping opportunities, contact Jack Cannon; 860-559-2230 (h); jcannonjr@cox.net.  Payments can be mailed to Paul Kehoe, 332 Great Pond Rd, South Glastonbury 06073.
