Parental Help Needed for Camping/Cooking programs

Posted on Jul 20 2014 - 5:27pm

Parents of T422,

I am working to finalize two new programs for our scouts. These programs are designed to meet two specific goals. Provide a flexible program to meet the classroom/bookwork requirements, and also provide some structure to our ongoing troop activities to ensure that as scouts complete requirements they are getting the signatures needed to complete the badges. Sounds simple? It is very simple as long as we have the volunteers needed to execute.

I will need 6 parents not currently in a committee role, or ASM position. I will also need 2 ASM/SM participants to assist on the ongoing monthly camping activities. Requirements are minimal, and time demands are also minimal over the course of the year. Again, keeping it simple. It is essential to assist our young scouts in their success. I look forward to hearing from you soon.

To encourage the development of good communication skills, Troop 422 requests that scouts persue answers themselves by calling or meeting in person. This means that parents are asked not to call, email or text, and scouts are asked not to email or text, to initiate contact.

Using announce@troop422.us

Posted on Jun 20 2014 - 10:03pm

Please do not reply to any emails from "announce@troop422.us". This address broadcasts to the whole troop so everyone will get your reply. Instead, see from whom the email came and reply just to that person.

When you send an email now using the announce address, please cc yourself as a recipient. I believe this will make it so others can see who the original sender was. MyTroop/SOAR recently had to change the send settings for announce emails to get around some filtering issues with a few major email providers like Yahoo and ATT. Sorry for the inconvenience.
