BPSA Scouting Informational Meeting

  • Sep 8, 2013 · 7:00 PM
  • Nick's House

We will be meeting with any interested parties on starting one or more BPSA troops (http://bpsa-us.org/). Several parents have come forth interested in running the troop and I'd like to get everyone in the same room to discuss it and go over the various options for running the troop(s) and activities that can be incorporated. I do not believe it'll actually take the full two hours.

I'll have some snack foods available (and feel free to bring some) but this won't be a full dinner.

The general idea is that individuals have expressed an interest in having the outdoor and learning experiences of scouts without the religious elements. We'll be discussing the goals of running a troop of this sort and some surrounding issues. 

If you are unable to attend but wish to receive information, please leave a comment with your email and I'll get you on a mailing list.

      Hey everyone - I just un-buried myself from month end at work (well... still ongoing) and realized we were hoping to meet tomorrow.  Sorry I let that slide and didn't respond to a few emails.  I'm now swamped tomorrow - but looks like next Sunday is could work.  I'll verify in the morning and send out a note.  Meanwhile, here's a recap of where we are:

      Emily has offered to be Membership Chair (Yay!)
      April has offered to be Camping Chair (double Yay!)
      Shannon (please confirm) - Otter Leader
      Becca - Timberwolf leader
      Dan - Pathfinder Leader and Committee Chair (for now until we can identify more leaders)

      We have commitment from FoF!  I'll work on getting us chartered this week.

      That's all for now, hopefully meeting next Sunday will be good for everyone.

    Hearing both Nick and Dan speak about their personal, positive experiences with Boy Scouts reminded me of why most of us are in this group (FoF) in the first place. Many of us have positive, personal experiences with church and we are trying to recreate that for ourselves and our children. The meeting was inspirational, that we could actually get this off the ground. Glad to be a part of it. [masked]

    We didn't know about the meeting until just now. Unfortunately, our kids come home from their dads at 6:00. Evenings on school nights are generally difficult as well, because we have young ones that need to be in bed at 8:00. We are so disappointed to miss this!
