Cyber-Chip Meeting – Monday September 18
Scouts will learn about online safety and responsible use of the Internet and digital resources.
Before the meeting, scouts should work with their parents to establish/update their Internet Use Agreement, which outlines acceptable use policy for the scout.
Scouts who have previously earned their Cyber Chip should bring it to the meeting so it can be renewed. New Cyber Chip cards will be presented to scouts who have not previously earned one.

Troop Leader Resources
This website is filled with videos, action photos, useful information and practical ideas, to help make it easier for youth and adult troop leaders to present Scout meetings that are fun with positive outcomes.
The troop meeting next week has been changed to Tuesday Nov. 1 at the church. This gives everyone the chance to go Trick or Treating on Monday and enjoy their candy. The meeting on Tuesday Nov. 1 will be planning for the Turkey Shoot.
Also, there is a Patrol Leaders Council (PLC) meeting at the church on Wednesday Nov. 2. It is important for Scouts who are members of the PLC to attend.
Correction: There is an error on the Eagle Ceremony invitation for Jacob Francis. The date should read Saturday afternoon, August 6th at 3pm. Sorry for the confusion.
During the troop meeting on February 8th, we will be visiting SWAT headquarters. We will be meeting at the church at 6:30pm and returning shortly before 9pm. Please make sure you show up on time for this fun tour of the SWAT headquarters.
BSA 365 is meeting on January 12th from 7:00 to 7:45. We have awards to give out and conversations to have about some upcoming Scouting Outings, etc. GO BUCKS!

At the September 15th troop meeting, scouts will have the opportunity to learn about responsible use of digital technology, culminating in their earning the Cyber Chip. In order to earn the Cyber Chip, scouts should complete the following prior to this meeting:
Write and sign a personalized contract between the scout and their parent or guardian that outlines rules for using the computer and mobile devices, including what you can download, what you can post, and consequences for inappropriate use.
The troop meeting on August 11th will include advancement wrap-up so make sure that you bring your scout book and come prepared for a scout master conference and board of review if you need one.
Also on August 11th, the troop will be having a gear swap/sale — bring your unwanted camping gear to sell at affordable prices, and your money to buy affordable gear. We will be auctioning off the lost and found items — 20 minutes after the lost owners have had a chance to claim and identify it.
