important information and leadership resources.

Our next Patrol Leaders' Council (Green Bar Meeting) will be Sunday, April 22nd from 6:15 - 7:15 pm at Plandome Village Hall. The agenda will be to plan the May & June Troop Meetings. Scouts who hold the following positions must attend:

Senior Patrol Leader
Assistant SPL
Patrol Leader (or Asst. PL if PL unavailable)
Troop Guide
Jr. Asst. Scoutmaster (JASM)

Pizza will be served. Civilian clothing permitted. 

Scouts MUST come prepared with ideas for the Troop meetings' activities, skill practice, contests, games, guest speakers, etc. (Google it!).  


1. We will regularly take attendance of Scouts during Patrol Reports. This will be factored into the Scout's "active" participation for purposes of rank advancement. 

2. Use of smartphones and similar devices at ALL Troop functions and activities will be limited to note-taking, reference and research in a Scout context/for Troop business. Any other use (games, texting, email, etc.) is prohibited.  Abuse of this privilege will result in the phone being confiscated until the end of the event.  (Without banning them completely, I'm trying to avoid the pattern from last year where Scouts would disappear from meetings to go upstairs, downstairs or outside, or huddled around at various events, to engage with their phones.  This disrupts the functioning of the event and, of course, is disrespectful to the leaders and other Scouts attending.)
