OA Elections & Troop 11 Website Work

Well, I’ve been busy this week. I supervised an OA election on Monday night, and I can’t remember one that I was more unprepared for. I got off very late from work and had to rush to get to the Troop’s meeting place in time for the election. First I couldn’t find my sash … then I couldn’t find the scripts for the participants … never did find them before I had to leave the house. I did find the generic ceremony in the Guide for Officers and Advisers and rushed out with that. To make a long story short, I did make it just in time, and the generic ceremony worked just fine, but I really gained a lot more respect for the phrase, “Be Prepared”. I did find my sash this evening in my sock drawer 🙂 .

Tonight, I added some Summer Camp forms to the Library page, updated the Troop Information Booklet, added a link to the Mulch Sales page on the index page, and added a pdf of the Mulch Sales Form. Mulch sales (our big spring fundraiser) is going well, and hopefully sales will be good in these tight financial times. We take orders for mulch in March, and then deliver in April.

There are a couple of new videos up at my YouTube page. There’s a link on the left side of the page under Resources. Take the time to go there and view them.

Yours in Scouting,

Dick Barnes
