Troop 133/1033 

Tonight's parent meeting is canceled.  We will reconvene in early 2021 with a plan for youth leadership training for incoming PLC, as well as to build our 2021 calendar.  

Thanks to all of you who attended and assisted with EcoGames/Orienteering at Belzer.  We had a great turn out with 40 youth including:
- 20 from T133
- 3 from T1033
- 7 from P200 (5 AOL, 2 Webelos)
- 7 from P282 (3 AOL, 4 Webelos)
- 1 AOL who moved from Georgia
- Plus 2 potential recruits/future scouts.  

Highlights include:
- Youth leaders used the edge method to teach a game
- 15 Cub scouts got to visit a Troop event which is a required activity to earn Arrow of Light
- Incoming parents learned what the transition will look like from Cub Scouts to Scouts BSA
- 11 T133/1033 scouts completed the orienteering requirement for First Class  
- All scouts and parents had fun and enjoyed hot chocolate!  

Overall, it was a great event, perfect weather, and wonderful to see kids being kids, outside, with friends, learning and playing.  Being scouts!  

A friendly reminder, if you have not already done so, please pay your 2021 registration dues so that we can complete our Troop recharter this week.    

Happy Holidays and hoping for a smoother 2021!

Patrol Parents Wanted!

Posted on Nov 29 2020 - 5:07pm

Patrol Parents Wanted!

Last spring, T133 and T1033 were in the process of setting up a Patrol Parent system.  Patrol Parents were going to coordinate transportation for scouts within each patrol to and from campouts.  This plan would allow our Scoutmasters (SM) and their assistants (ASMs) to focus more on scouting and would have enhanced parent-to-parent communication and support within the troops. 

Although we are not going on any campouts for a while, T133 and T1033 are in need of Patrol Parents more than ever!   Under our current COVID “plan-B” situation, the SMs and Assistant Scoutmasters (ASMs) will be working closely with our Patrol Leader Council (PLC) to plan weekend activities that are focused on fun and advancement.  Patrol Parents will then help coordinate the necessary parental support make these plans run successfully.  Scouting is SCOUT LED.  But under COVID, our scouts (and their parents) will need some extra help keeping in touch with each other.  

Some sample Patrol Parent duties might include:
- Working with an ASM (or delegating another parent) to set up small meetings (zoom or otherwise) between patrol leaders and the rest of their patrol to prepare for outdoor events/plan advancement activities
- sending emails to parents to make sure everybody is “in the loop,”
- helping the SMs and ASMs find additional parent volunteers when needed
- fielding basic questions from other parents about dates, times, etc.
- making sure somebody brings a box of instant hot chocolate packets to keep the patrol warm on chilly winter days! (The Troops will be bringing the Jet Boiler to our outdoor events).

Volunteering as a Patrol Parent is a small job that will go a long way towards helping T133 and T1033 operate smoothly during these challenging times. 

Please contact Danna Kostroun if you are interested in volunteering as Patrol Parent at dkostroun@gmail.com
