What’s on Our Mind

Meeting Format and Announcements

The way the meetings are being run have been changed to a new format:

7:00-7:15 – Opening ceremony and announcements by Senior Patrol Leader (SPL) – see below
7:15-7:30 – Patrol Meetings – take attendance
7:30-8:00 – Merit Badge and Rank Advancement classes
8:00-8:20 – Troop Activity
8:20-8:30 – Closing ceremony and clean-up

Announcements: We have developed a new method for the way announcements are to be conducted: There will be 3×5 cards on the back table. Print your announcement on the card before the meeting and give it to the SPL. He will read your announcement during the announcement time. Be sure to print your name on the card, so if anybody has any additional questions or needs more information, they know who to go to.


A good way to start the new year. With the brand new Troop 41 website. There’s still a lot of work to do and a lot of possibilities for making into a site we all can use and benefit from. Whats up works but needs some tweaking. The best way to do that is to start using it and address fixes as we see how it will work best for us. So any contributions will be appreciated. I can give accounts to any that would like to help. I will be also looking for some boys to help me administrate the workings of the site and coordinate contributions. So please let me know if you are interested and also keep me informed of any problems or questions so we can address them.

So here’s to a new year and a new tool for the troop.
