New Rank Requirements
January 24, 2016
As most of the current scouts know, the BSA has changed the requirments for rank advancements for all of the Boy Scout ranks. These changes effect the Scout through First Class ranks the most, but all ranks have been effected. New scout handbooks with the updated rank requirments will be available soon, but it may be some time before we can get our hands on them due to high demand. Until then, the BSA has released insert style printable PDF versions that scouts can print off and add to their current handbooks. Follow this link. For a more complete explanation and comparison of the requrement changes, click here.

Spring Court of Honor
January 24, 2016
Troop 843 will hold a spring Court of Honor on Tuesday, March 29th starting at 6:30. The Court of Honor will be held in the Legion Rooms of the Oostburg American Legion Hall. We will be recognizing the accomplishments and advancements our scouts have made since the last Court of Honor in fall. The meeting will also include a short partents meeting to discuss things like camp and the possibility of a spring fundraiser, so at least one parent should plan on attending.

Eagle Courts of Honor
January 24, 2016
Two scouts from Troop 843 have recently earned the rank of Eagle. Because this is such an accomplisment, we hold a special Courts of Honor for those scouts, and recognize them individually. Alex Malueg's Eagle Court of Honor will be held at the Town of Holland Hall on January 30th, starting at Noon. Greg Scholten's Eagle Court of Honor will be held in the Ansay Center at Harrington Beach State Park on April 9th, starting at 3. The scouts from Troop 843 will be participating in both of these events. Please plan on your scouts attending both events. Scouts parents and families are welcome to attend as well.

Summer Camp 2016

In July of 2016, our troop will be attending Bear Paw Scout Camp the week of July 24th through July 30th. We will be staying in the Munsee campsite. More info about Camp Bear Paw can be found here.

Sign up deadline is February 27th, and final payment is due by April 26th. Current health forms are due to Scoutmaster Jason by July 3rd.

Our Troop is becoming very active, and we need your help to keep it going. What better way to show interest in what your son is doing than getting involved? Become a Committee Member, an Assistant Scoutmaster, or even a Merit Badge Councelor. Or do you have another idea of how you can help?
