What a great Court of Honor with Troop 2319. The scouts have accomplished so much over the past 3 months, it’s truly incredible. We awarded 153 merit badges and 27 ranks. That’s quite a lot for only the past three months! We also had the privileged of awarding Scorpio his first three palms, Nick his fifth palm, and Avery his fourteenth and fifteenth palms! Thank you to all our all our leaders who help keep the troop running and congratulations to all the scouts again. We ended our Court of Honor with the tradition of passing off the Troop flag from our previous SPL to our new one, Jay Wasser. We welcome Jay and are excited for him to start his role as our next SPL.
Wow it’s been a busy couple of weeks. We rounded off our Troop Outings & Activities with a Troop, Crew, Pack Picnic on Lake Allatoona. There were lots of indoor and outdoor games for scouts to enjoy and with over 125 people attending, there was plenty of people to enjoy them with. The troop would also like to extend our thanks to Chad Carter for bringing his professional grade grille and acting as our grill master for the day. The food was delicious! Thank you Chad as well as everyone else who brought a dessert and or side to share! As usual, click the image below to see the full album.
On Monday the troop held elections for the leadership positions in the troop. Great job to all who ran! Our new SPL is Jay Wasser and his ASPL’s are Jeremy Andre and Michael Carlin. The new patrol leaders are Aiden Mihill for the Flaming Gremlins patrol and Aiden Pinwarden for the Kraken patrol. Other positions include Gavin Huey as Historian, Cavin Davis as Troop guide, Robert Carlin as OA rep, Avery Shumpert as Troop instructor and several more! The official leadership change will occur next week at our troop’s Court of Honor. There will be a PLC for the incoming leadership on Sept 2nd for the new leadership to start setting their goals and laying out their plan. Michael C. Troop 2319 Historian
On Saturday August 17 the troop went up to Buggy Top and Peter Caves in Sherwood, TN. Due to the extremely hot weather the troop decided not to camp but to go on a day trip. The troop drove up early Saturday morning and hiked in. The older scouts went to Peters cave and the rest of the troop went to Buggy Top cave. The cave was at a perfect temperature and little slippery at times with pools of water below. Even though it was very hot outside the scouts had a great time. Michael C. Troop 2319 Historian
