Troop 17 Update...

Posted on May 14 2020 - 4:28pm

Hi Everyone.  It's been a while since I sent a message out, sorry for that.  Obviously, we are still unable to meet at the Lions Club.  What I would like to do is have a Zoom meeting this Monday night at 715pm.  I think a free Zoom account gives you 45 minutes.  We can use this time to allow everyone to check in.  There have been some national and council level developments to go over, as well as summer camp information.  You probably saw today that Camp Durant will not be holding summer camp this year.  Raven Knob is still planning on camp, but has had major changes to what we are used to.  If Monday night is not a good time for everyone, please email or text me and we can try for another time.  I'd like all of the scouts and adult leaders to attend if possible.  I will send out a zoom link on Monday to everyone.  Have a great remainder of the week and weekend!  Bobby

Raven Knob Online Merit Badge Learning

Posted on Apr 24 2020 - 10:07am

Hi All.  I got an email from Camp Raven Knob a couple days ago.  They are offering online merit badge classes through Google Classroom.  You will be able to complete most, or all of it online, and have access to a counselor if the need arises.  As of today, they only have 3 classes available.  Citizenship in the Nation (eagle required for those that need it), Pets, and Dog Care.  Future offerings will include Cit in the World, Engineering, Scholarship, Safety, and Family Life.  Go to ravenknob.com/online for more info and to sign up.  Seems like an easy way to get some of these badges done while we are all stuck at home.  Of course, you can do merit badges yourself and turn them in once we are together again.  Let me know if there are any questions.  Bobby

Hello Everyone.  A message from the national council came out today.  All BSA activities are canceled through May 8th.  I will send out another update as soon as it becomes available.  Bobby

National Council Update - No BSA activities until April 30th.

Posted on Mar 22 2020 - 9:12am

Hi Everyone.  I hope this email finds you all well.  Most of you should have received the email in the last couple days from the national council.  All Boy Scout activities have been canceled/suspended/postponed until April 30.  Keep an eye on your email for any updates, and I will also post here when I see something.  For those of you with advancement work, please do it at home and send me an email on your progress.  If you need any information on where you stand with a merit badge, I can get you that info as well.  Stay safe!  Bobby
