Plant a Tree

Join the Boy Scouts of America and the Arbor Day Foundation: plant a tree in honor of 100 years of scouting in the US.

Youth Protection Training

Effective June 1, 2010, every registered BSA volunteer is required to have Youth Protection training, and the renew it every two years. All Troop 185 ASM's, merit-badge counselors, etc. are encouraged to complete this training ASAP.  We encourage all parents to do so as well, and the BSA may soon require it of all adults who go on over-night trips.

You can get the required training on-line at the MyScouting.org web site. For more information, see the scouting.org site.

On a related note, the Knox Trail Council requires all adult leaders to submit a CORI request form.  You can download the form from the Council's CORI Policy page (see the bottom of that page.)

New Web Site Design

Welcome to the redesigned web site for Troop 185. I hope you like it!

The design is part of a system (Drupal) that has several advantages:

  • More consistent design and navigation on different pages.
  • It looks better. (You be the judge.)
  • Easier to maintain. (I judge this one.)
  • Better use of our photo collection. (See?)

There are also several features that may or not be useful for us: blogging, forums, and more.

Some part of the old site have not yet been moved to the new one. Until they have, you can find them using the "Old Site" tab at the top of the page.

Let me know if there is anything you like or hate about the new design. You can talk to me at a troop meeting or use the Contact tab at the top of the page. Expect to see more changes in the near future.
