Welcome !

Welcome to Troop 642's Home Page!

Update November 13th, 2017

I hope this message finds your all happy and healthy.
Popcorn is here: Stacy Byone wants you to know that popcorn orders have arrived and she will bring the popcorn to the meeting this Tuesday. Please plan on picking it up.
Meeting this week: Will Ronnau has a special meeting planned for you this week. I think you will all have fun and find it rewarding and he has gone to a lot of effort to plan something unique and interesting. I expect an improvement in behavior at the Troop Meetings from many Scouts. Too many meeting plans have gotten derailed by scouts unwilling to participate or even worse, deliberately sabotaging the plans of our Troop Leadership. There will be zero tolerance of this going forward. 
A few updates and reminders: You should have held Patrol Meetings this past week. Next month, you will be electing Patrol Leaders and Assistant Patrol Leaders for January through June.
Recharter: It is time to Recharter for next year. Please let us know if you are not planning on sticking with Scouting and we will not recharter you. Otherwise, we will expect the full $120 per Scout (includes one adult) recharter fee. Checks should be made payable to Troop 642 and need to be turned in this month. In addition, we need an adult application and proof of YPT completion for each actual application. 
Troop Meeting this week but not next week, the week of Thanksgiving.
Adult Training: Online training is available now. A LOT of it. Please go online tohttp://voiceofscouting.org/scouting-u-finishes-online-training to see more details.
Summer Camp 2018: Troop 642 will be attending Camp Emerald Bay in Catalina from June 24 - June 30. Emerald Bay is widely considered the premier Boy Scout Camp on the West Coast. We have reserved 32 spots for Scouts and 8 spots for adults (which I am hoping will be taken up by some of our graduating seniors.) Please look for sign-ups this week. A $100 non-refundable deposit is required to guarantee your spot. 
Outings update: I know there are several scouts who need to lead a campout to complete their camping merit badge. Plenty of you have good ideas rolling around in your heads about places that you would like to go visit. Even if it is not for the Camping Merit Badge, let's get camping! Please see me so we can set up an outing.
There will be a meeting for all interested in planning future outings over the next year at Suzie Morgan's house on Wednesday November 29th at 7 pm. Please come if you have ideas on where you would like to see the Troop visit.
