Kick off meeting for 2016-2017

Tuesday, September 6


It’s that time of year again and with school starting yesterday for most of you (yes sorry I used the “S” word!) the other “S” word – Scouting- gets in full swing as well.

The Troop kick off meeting will take place on TUESDAY, September 6th at 7:30 in the St John School hall.  All Scouts need to have a parent with them.  Parents should bring their checkbooks.

The Troop PLC has planned an activity packed, fun filled year of meetings and trips and we will be once again be announcing the trips, distributing the Troop calendar, collecting forms and dues at a joint Scout & Parent meeting. 

Forms Attached

  • Saco Permission & Equipment Lists – due by September 12th
  • BSA Medical Form - I do not need medical forms for anyone who went to Resolute or Mexico with the Troop this summer.
  • Code of Conduct & Anti Bullying info – Turn in on the 6th
  • Activity Consent Form – Turn in on the 6th
  • Scout & Parent Participant Sheet – Turn in at meeting on the 6th

The Order of the Arrow Ordeal is the weekend of September 9 – 11 at Camp Resolute – go to to register.

We will then start regular meetings on MONDAYS – starting on September 12th.

This will be a meeting partially for planning the Saco River trip with weekend of September 16 – 18.

The members of the PLC should be hearing from Max & Brendan soon about a PLC meeting for all Patrol Leaders, Troop Guides, ASPLs etc. on September 7th.

I hope everyone has had a great summer and we look forward to the start of another fantastic year of Scouting in Troop 185.

See you all on the 6th
