Hello Troop 160
 
The Youth Leaders(Patrol Leaders Council) have gotten together and have decided to have small group meetings on Mondays which will teach specific subjects that will allow scouts to learn and get advancement requirements signed off in their scout book.  We will start off small and schedule each Monday from 6:30pm-7:30. SIGNUP ON TROOP WEBSITE BY THE  NIGHT BEFORE THE EVENT IS MANDATORY. We need to have signup the night before so that we can plan instructors/additional concurrent sessions as needed.  Depending on signup we may run an additional session concurrently or from 7:30-8:30pm.  Particulars will be emailed on Monday am to to those signing up.

Spring Popcorn Sales

Posted by cgolke on Mar 19 2020 - 9:57am
Hello Scout families,
 
The troop is participating in Spring popcorn sales. This is optional to the scout and in light of recent events, please use your best judgement on if or to whom you sell. We will try to come up with another fundraiser at some point during the year. If you have any ideas, please let me know. 
 
Attached are instructions and the order form. If you are not able to print it, I have 50 copies at my house - feel free to come by and pick one up (317 Sherwood Drive, Cary).
 
In addition, there is an option for online selling. The scout will create their own web page and can send family / friends the link in lieu of going door-to-door. The items and prices available online are different than what is on the door-to-door form. Please see the attached materials for details and if you have questions, please contact me:
