Corn Roast: We will be having a corn roast and trailer dedication on August 19th. This will start promptly at 7PM, at McDonaldsville/St Paul UMC. This is an event for the family to attend, and to officially "kickoff" our next year. Since this is a special event to thank The Sons and Daughts of Herman Benevolent Fund, Inc for donating the funds to purchase our new trailer Class A uniforms are required for this event.
Class A Uniforms: As a reminder troop policy is scouts can wear a Class B scout shirt (except for special events, Scout Master Conferences, and Board of Reviews) between Memorial Day and Labor Day. This means scouts will be expected to be in Class A uniforms on September 2nd, a sad farewell to summer.
Scoutmaster Conferences: There are several scouts that should need SMC's resulting from completing the F.R.O.G. programs at summer camp. You will need to make sure your Scout Books are up to date with the Advancement Representative, Mr. Kalmar. Then see Mr. Smith to schedule your SMC. At that point we will make sure we have enough representatives to form a Board of Review and get this accomplished after the SMC.
Advancement Sign Offs: This is a boy lead troop so the scouts with a rank of First Class or higher do sign off most of the requirement for other scouts but there are a few exceptions, here is a helpful list of the exceptions.
Put-In-Bay Camporee (Sept. 5-7): We will be attending the Put-In-Bay Camporee from Friday Sept. 5th - 7th. The permission slip and payment is due to Mr. Elkins by June 30th, this date is set by the troop sponsoring the camporee. This is a fun but busy weekend and the scouts should only need money to purchase souvenirs - see the permission slip for everything included with the cost.
Summer Camp (June 22-28): Summer camp 2014 is now history and what a week it was! We completed another successful week at Seven Ranges Scout Reservation, and came home with many merit badges, two coup feathers, camp honors, two new OA candidates and a lot of great memories. We've posted a few photos of the week.
Eagle projects: This post will be kept open as we have several Scouts arranging work days for their projects. If you have a need for a posting please send an email to Mr. Smith to get this updated with current information. The latest Life to Eagle Packet has been posted and should be reviewed by all Scouts once they earn the Life Rank.
Medical Forms: BSA National has once again revised its medical form in 2014. The form consists of 4 parts: Parts A and B are to be completed at least annually by participants in all Scouting events. Part C is the physical exam that is required for participants in any event that exceeds 72 consecutive hours, for all high-adventure base participants, or when the nature of the activity is strenuous and demanding. Part D is required to be reviewed by all participants of a high-adventure program at one of the national high-adventure bases and shared with the examining health-care provider before completing Part C.

Homesickness: This is a fantastic article from a past Scouting magazine issue pertaining to dealing with homesickness. It gives a lot of good advice for leaders and parents pertaining to how we should deal with it. Please pay specific attention to the section titled 'Set up a no-call policy'. We have had to deal with this issue frequently. This is a reason we do not allow cell phones to be seen at campouts. While we can't control use inside a tent, we hope parents will understand, support, and reinforce our position to your sons. Not a Happy Camper
Welcome to the latest iteration of the Troop 935 website! Take a look around; if something isn't working right let us know. If you would like anything added, let us know that as well. Hopefully, all of the forms you need are readily available in one of the four headers on the left under 'Forms'. We have a few things to do here yet, including adding more to our picture pages and try a password protection area for family contact information, committee meeting minutes, Scoutmaster reports, Scout account status, summer camp payment status by Scout, and other things. For you 'old timers' out there, there are plenty of things that are missing and gaps that need filled in, so please feel free to contribute or offer missing details!
A PDF version of each program year is available in our 'Unit Information' link on the left menu.
