SM Report – Mike Z, SM. Summer camp went well. Fast Track is going well. Planning for Fort Ridgely – will need more adults to come if they can.
Additions to Agenda – none
Summer Camp – follow-up and close-out issues. Overall it went well. Boys had a wrap-up meeting last month. Can have an adults wrap-up meeting if desired.
Ft Ridgely – Aug 19-21 – historical sites
Interstate SP (Taylor’s Falls) – Sep 9-11. Climbing. Aaron is trying to track down climbing gear – is having a hard time finding. Planning to invite the Cub Scouts to this campout.
Carver Park or Camporee – Oct 7-9. Boys would rather do Carver – we would plan to invite the Cub Scouts to that one.
Halloween Walk. October 29. Drew thinks with the bigger group we can do well with a little structure and guidance. Would like to start earlier in September prepping.
Scoutbook Transition – Making progress. Entering data in the system which is sometimes tedious work. Can involve Scouts but individual parents will have to invite – Aaron will send info out on how to conduct. Scoutbook will significantly reduce or may eliminate the need for blue cards to track merit badges.
