What would a Scout camp out be with out rain???

WEAR RAIN GEAR, No Tennis shoes, make sure all of your things (clothes, books, etc) are sealed in ziploc bags, bring a pencil

On the Survival Trail you will need: Your Scout Handbook (in a ziploc), a Scout Field Book (if you have one), a first aid booklet, and a book on knots.

Be Prepared, Dress for the weather, you will be hiking (BOOTS).

Philmont Crew Spot open on a GLFSC Provisional Crew

There is still time to join a Philmont Crew - Council has openings in one of their 2017 provisional crews for 4-5 scouts and for 1 adult.  (1 youth is needed to meet the minimum requirements for the crew.)  Please let me know if you know of anyone that might be interested.  NEED TO KNOW ASAP.

This is NOT the T125 Crew but a provisional crew made up of Scouts from several Troops.

Hey Scouts

Changes to Rank Requirements are here. All Ranks have changes and new requirements.

If you are in the 7th Grade or older you have to switch to the NEW 2016 Rank requirements. ALL Scoutmaster Conferences going forward will be checking to make sure that you have the new pages in your book or have a new book and that you have completed all of the New Requirements too.

You can download the pages in PDF Format from the Troop Website under the file tab at the top - File Downloads>Forms>New Rank Requirements.
