Schedule changes

Hello Troop 7,

Our next event, is the Emergency Services Camporee.  Initially it looked like we would not be able to go due to a school conflict that prevented our older leadership from going, but fortunately the school calendar has changed.  September 26 -28.  Get ready for some exciting events, and a chance to earn some patches in the five categories (Police, Fire, Search and Rescue, EMS, and Community Emergency Response).

Two, to eliminate any school conflict with Solo & Ensemble, we will be moving our much-anticipated ski trip to the first weekend of midwinter break (February 13 to February 15) .  Please mark your calendars.

Looking forward to a great year.

Mr. Chettleburgh, Scoutmaster

PLC Planning Meeting Monday July 28

Hello Troop 7

We have a PLC planning meeting on Monday July 28.  I’ve spoken to many of the Scouts about what activities they are hoping to do next year.  Here are the results, in order of the level of excitement I heard–

1.   A Northern Michigan Ski Trip

2.  Backpacking, possibly with two levels of expertise

3.  Camping (of course!!!)

Looking forward to meeting with our leaders and filling in the calendar.

Also, if you have a tent which needs to be returned, this is a good opportunity to do so.

Troop 7 Scoutmaster

Hello,  I am the new Scoutmaster for Troop 7 in Ann Arbor.  I invite you to check our troop out–we meet Monday nights during the school year at the First Presbyterian Church in downtown Ann Arbor.  Our monthly trips this past year included White Water Rafting on the New River in WV, bicycling, kayaking, shooting sports (rifles, archery, and shotgun), and of course Summer Camp–this 2104 at Camp Gerber.

We had 4 Eagle Scouts this past year, and pride ourselves in boy-led leadership and advancement.  We currently have about 30 active youth Scouts.

Please feel free to email me for more information.
