1. Ice Fishing - Due to ice conditions and expected extreme weather, the Ice Fishing Camp-out has been tentatively moved from this coming weekend to Saturday, January 23rd (returning 1/24). As soon as the ice houses are confirmed, there will be an RSVP on the Troop website.
2. Submarine Camp/Star Camp - Due to significant encouragement from the Northern Star Council, the Submarine Camp that was planned for May has been at least tentatively cancelled in favor of attending the "Star Camp" 2010 Council Jamboree, to be held at the Arden Hills Military Training Center (where we camped in September) on the weekend of May 22-23. This Jamboree marks the 100th anniversary of Boy Scouts in America. We will revisit the Sub idea at a later time.
3. Troop Discipline Policy - It is yet again time to revisit our troop discipline policies. Along with troop discussions, the permission slip for camping trips will be changed to include a discipline policy statement that each scout will be asked to review and sign for each camping trip.
4. Troop Leadership (SPL, ASPLs, Patrol Leaders) Meeting - There will be a planning meeting for the Troop Youth Leadership (see new positions below) next Sunday, January 10, at 7:00 pm at Mr. Loff's House (5116 Meadow Ridge, Edina, 55439).
