Update to the exterior graphics of the Troop trailer

Posted by mtrexler on Aug 9 2022 - 5:42am

Project: Troop 367 Equipment Trailer Reconditioning 

Purpose: To perform maintenance activities, repairs and cosmetic changes to the existing Troop 367 Equipment  Trailer.  

The project will be composed of several parts including but not limited to: 

Making physical repairs to trailer dents, dings and scratches and replacing broken components.

Buffing/cleaning existing painted and aluminum surfaces for either repainting or graphics  overlay. 

Upgrading to LED marker and taillights. 

Making interior modifications & maps of equipment storage locations. 

Graphics Update: Part of this project is to update the exterior graphics of the trailer. This part of the project will enlist  members of the troop to provide ideas and examples of new graphics. Interested Troop Members of  both Troop 367B and Troop 367G will be asked to submit sketches of ideas for new graphics.  

Submissions may be made for any/all of the front, back and left and rights sides of the trailer. There are  also 3 doors whose graphics may be incorporated into the overall or may be standalone graphics if the  door design works well with the overall design. It is possible that the final designs may come from  submissions of 4 or more scouts. Scouts may work with other scouts to submit a design.  

Important features to consider/include in design: 

Design must have a Scouting theme. (i.e. Merit Badges, American Flag, Camping, Hiking etc.)

Copyrighted materials other than BSA may not be included in the design. 

Identifying information such as Troop 367, New Hanover, PA and Charter Organization info  should be included. (Web site info may be included.) 

Simple designs may be better than detailed complex designs. A shadow design like on our tee  shirts may be better than a full color graphic.  

Gender neutral/inclusive designs should be considered.  

Perform an internet search “bsa troop trailer designs” for ideas. NO COPYING! We will look! 

Troop Committee Members will review submissions to determine a preliminary group of sketches for  consideration and final voting by the members of both troops. Prior to voting, attempts will be made to  convert preliminary sketches to a computer graphic. Computer aided designed drawings may also be  submitted by the designer. A copy of the Trailer Template Package is attached.

Important Dates: 

Tuesday 8/2/2022: Project Kickoff 

Tuesday 8/23/2022: Deadline for Sketches/Submissions 

Sunday 9/18/2022: Court of Honor and Voting on final designs.

 

Why volunteer?.... not just for service time rank advancement

Posted by mtrexler on Aug 9 2022 - 5:40am

People choose to volunteer for a variety of reasons. For some it offers the chance to give something back to the community or make a difference to the people around them. For others it provides an opportunity to develop new skills or build on existing experience and knowledge.

Watch this video of NHELC Scout Sunday to learn how the scouting experience has impacted both Scouts and Adult volunteers:  https://youtu.be/IhWH2Lqv4dk

Upcoming opportunities:

August 13: Assistance during 5k event

September 17: Township day at Hickory Park

Merit Badge Competition

Posted by mtrexler on Aug 2 2022 - 4:20pm

The Scouts need to Notify Mr. Berger when they complete a Merit Badge. 

We take the 137 current MB’s and invert them so that the least earned has the highest point value.  For example, the listing for 2019 has “First Aid” as the most earned, so that would be worth 1 point, but  “Bugling” was the least earned and is worth 137 points

So what do I need to do? You need to start and finish your MB’s in the calendar year of 2022.  Previously started MB’s will not be counted even if completed in 2022.  Must start and complete in 2022.

Reminders

Posted by mtrexler on Jul 28 2022 - 5:45pm

Please ensure you bring your Scoutbook to every meeting - Joe Super along with other adult leaders will be checking your books and updating the 'Scoutbook' app so your electronic records are up to date as well.
