- Camp Balboa– Our Mini-PLC before the meeting consisted of just Camp Balboa planning. We discussed things like equipment, schedule, and what to teach younger scouts.
- Opening Ceremonies

- Scouting for Food– Scouting for food has started! Be sure to collect those cans! Nick Greco is the SIC for this.
- Camp Balboa– Camp Balboa is next weekend! It is March 17th-19th. Make sure all your checks go to Mrs. Lee. Gabe Altamirano is the SIC. In your response, tell me if you are going to Camp Balboa.
- Scout Fair Coupon Books– Be sure to sell those coupon books! Remember that if you don’t sell them, you have to either return them or pay for them. Jacob Sur is the SIC for this.
Hello good people!
- Opening Ceremonies
- Cub Scout Rotations– Each patrol was responsible for a station. In your response to me, please include what station your patrol did.
- Scoutmaster’s Minute– Cam Newton got benched because he didn’t wear the proper attire while he was traveling with his team. Make sure that you always wear the scout uniform correctly, so that you don’t get benched. Watch out everybody who doesn’t wear the full scout uniform, the bench is coming for you.
- Closing Ceremonies
- CPR/First Aid Class– There will be a CPR/First Aid Class at St. Therese on Saturday, 12/17. Owen Riley is the SIC. The cost is $40 per person. If you take this class, you will become CPR Certified. So, if you are not CPR Certified or need to renew you certification, I suggest that you go to this class.
- Philmont 2018– We are going to Philmont! Our adventure will be Aug. 5 – Aug. 12, 2018. In your response, please include: Hooray for Philmont!
- Tent Set Up/Pack Up: Blue Angels
- Cooking with Dutch Ovens: Hydra
- Lashings: Dumbledore’s Army
- Good/Bad Tent: Dwaggens
- First Aid Stretcher: Boss
- Orienteering: A10 Spartan Warhawks
- Opening Ceremonies
- Flags– We need to be able to do a proper flag ceremony. Make sure everyone knows what they are doing before they do flags.
- Earlier Elections– The PLC has decided to hold troop elections more than a week before the COH, so that the old PLC can teach the new PLC about their jobs before the old PLC leaves. For example, I will be teaching the next Scribe about his new job before my term ends. This is so that the new officers are not completely clueless when they take on a position. Fun Fact: This motion was passed unanimously!
- Troop Projector– Micheal Taylor is working on finding a projector that the troop can buy. This could be used for skills instructions and other things.
- New Patrol Box System– Edwin Lim and the new Event Quartermaster, Ryan Clairmont, are working on getting the new patrol box system proposed by Edwin set up.
- Troop Equipment- Many members of the PLC have seen a lack of good equipment in the troop. This includes incomplete or broken tents, and uncleaned utensils and stoves. To fix this problem our Quartermaster of Events will be taking inventory and finding out what equipment needs to be replaced. Buying this new equipment will help us to be better prepared, which is part of our vision.
- Patrol Quartermasters– We will be re-assigning patrol quartermasters to help our troop quartermaster, Ryan. Ryan can’t do everything on his own, and things get done a lot faster when 7 people are working on it instead of 1. Ryan would be the chief quartermaster and overseer, and the patrol quartermasters would help him out. If you understand, please respond to me, “If I am chosen to be the quartermaster of my patrol, I will do my best to help Ryan do his job.”
- Open House– Open House is on Tuesday! Make sure your patrol is ready.
- Donut Sales- Donut sales are next Sunday, December 11th! First shift at 9:00am is Blue Angels. Second shift at 11:00am is Boss. Be sure to come early to get set up.
- CPR/First Aid Class– There will be a CPR/First Aid Class on December 17th at St. Therese of Carmel. An SIC is needed for this event.
- Christmas Caroling– The annual Christmas Caroling event is December 18th at Brookdale Carmel Valley. Chris Caligiuri is the SIC.
- Dos Picos Campout– This will be a campout for younger scouts to get some requirements done. It will be December 17th and 18th. The SIC is Chris Grecko.
Hello good people of the Troop,
Next week is the Court of Honor, held at St. Therese starting promptly at 6:45. Get there early to help start and finish on time!
- Opening Ceremonies- Stay responsible!
- SPL Election– And Troop 765’s next SPL is… (drumroll pleaaasssee…) TREVOR!!!! He is a junior in high school and has a lot of experience. His chosen ASPL’s are… Tompson and Gabe!
- Elections– Attached is a picture of the elected positions and which scouts have a position.
- Orienteering Skills Instruction– Nick Greco taught the scouts how to use the step-calculator. Make sure to come to the orienteering event!
- Scoutmaster Minute– A reflection on the results of the presidential election. Don’t be afraid to speak up in this troop if something’s wrong or if you need help!
- Orienteering Event– See SIC Nick Greco’s emails.
- Ending Scribe Announcement– Well here it is. My last week. I want to thank everyone that read and responded to my emails, for bearing with me through long paragraphs of information. I will try to make sure the next scribe will do better than me to keep strong digital communication within the troop by rewarding people with candy. And without further ado,
Attendance is attached. Again, the patrol leaders took the responsibility of writing down who in their patrol attended. Although, next term we will have different patrol leaders and a different scribe but I hope to make the transition smooth.

- Troop Projector– The PLC has decided that we would like a troop projector. The projector would be nice to use during meetings with Skills Instructions, Games, presentations, and other announcements. So, Harmon has volunteered to work with the Quartermaster of Meetings Michael Taylor on the task to try and find a fitting projector for our troop and a plan for it. Happy hunting!
- Position Emails– You probably realized this isn’t my usual email. Well, if you didn’t, then I should let you know that this is now the Scribe email for Troop 765. Webmaster Spencer Lee is trying to make sure everyone in the PLC has their own email for their position, so it kind of separates their personal from their “work” And when you’re no longer that position you pass it down… generation after generation. Isn’t that just legendary? So yeah you’ll probably see emails from names like mine in the future.
- Being SIC for Events- If you are in the PLC, remember when you signed up to patron all the events the PLC made in a year’s advance? Yeah, for you guys out there, you don’t have to go to the event. Again, you don’t have to go to the event. However, you ARE responsible for making sure if you aren’t, someone else does. No matter what, by your responsibility, the event must be seen through.
- Family Night- Taking one meeting out of the regular calendar and doing something fun! The PLC has chosen! Once a PLC term, we will have family night! Miguel is in charge; some possible events include Beach, Park, Dinner Fundraiser, Dave & Busters, etc. If you understand, please reply back to me which one of these (or come up with your own!) that you would most likely want to attend.
- Community Service Project @ Helen Woodward– Sean Cooney is trying to plan this. Approved by PLC.
- Patrol Leaders Sheet– Patrol Leaders! It is important that if you haven’t already that you fill in your patrol’s information on the Patrol’s document.
- Toy Chest! So I mean I brought this up at the meeting. We could possibly have a Game-Master type position where they are in charge of different types of games the Troop can play. We can buy troop-footballs, soccer balls, and frisbees that will stay in the trailer and stuff. The Game-Master can bring and make up new games that we could play. I offered up the game of Spikeball, which seems pretty cool (you can look it up).
- August Donut Sales– DA is first shift and Hydra is second shift. If you are in one of these patrols make sure you contact your patrol leader saying whether you can make it to one of these or not. Be responsible! For more information on what to do ask your patrol leader. Patrols need to contact Mr. Taylor with a roster.
- Merit Badge Day– The planned date is August 20th, pending on the location of St. Therese… for the merit badges of Emergency Preparedness and Personal Management taught by Mr. Taylor. More parents are signing up to teach merit badges for this event so stay tuned for all kinds of different merit badges! If you are a parent it is encouraged that you can try to teach a merit badge for this event.
- Troop Feast- The annual Troop Feast is planned for September 10th. Everybody better get ready for the astronomic event that is the end of the Summer Games! If you understand, please respond to me that “my patrol is going to cook (insert example meal discussed with your patrol here).” So yeah, make sure that your patrol is ready. I suggest meeting up beforehand outside the meetings and cook and taste and play video games and whatever…
- Rocket Camp- Sumit / Andrew K. are SIC for this fun campout. AIC is Mr. Kearse. The date is October 1st. Mark your calendars!
- Blue Sky Reserve Hike– August 6th. SIC is Eric Chang and his advisor Edwin L. It is located in Poway, and is a new area that we can start hiking in. Be sure to try and come!
- Fiesta Island Campout– SIC Ben Young and Jeffrey Taylor is going to reschedule this campout to somewhere in the Spring.
Hi Troop 765,
- Summer Camp Troop Yells– Me, Gabe, and Harmon led a voting for the best troop yell in the troop. See IMPORTANT results in Summer Camp Stuff
- Summer Game: Freeze Tag With Knots by Blue Angels– Might I say this was a very creative and fun-filled game where everybody could run around with tons of energy and enthusiasm! Good job Blue Angels! Please make sure you know when your patrol does it’s next Summer Game. For more information on summer games, please email our SPL at email@example.com
- Attention All Life Scouts! Eagle Scout Harmon Jones is welcoming you all to learn the ropes of how to start (and finish) your Eagle Project! We will do an Eagle Project together going step by step after Summer Camp! More information on this to come…
- Scribe Notes Rewards- So, as said during the meeting, I want to improve digital communication within the troop by (at certain, mysterious times) rewarding the people who correctly respond to my scribe notes emails. If you respond you could earn some real delicious smarties! But IMPORTANT- when the meetings are at Temple Beth Am you are NOT allowed to eat on the premises. If I catch you then I won’t give it to you next time!
- Scoutmaster’s Minute– Play Pokemon Go? (Well me too! Please respond to me with your team name IF you play. If not, then you don’t have to respond) Anyways the scoutmaster’s minute reminds everybody to be responsible while playing, be aware of your surroundings, and of the 5 4 3 2 1 method of self discipline. Do the things you have to do so you can do the things you want to do.
- Important Information Said During the Meeting– Be on time! Make sure to bring a breakfast for the first day! Lunch will be provided! Take motion sickness medicine if you need it the night before! If you take it last minute we cannot guarantee a nice boat trip for you!
- Other Important Information– Lists, Rules, What to Bring, the Schedule: You can find by looking at the Troop Blog or by emailing AIC Mr. A at firstname.lastname@example.org
- Troop Yells– The votes are in! Our ranking of Troop Yells is as follows: #1 We Got This, #2 Compass, #3 Camping, #4 Sports, and #5 Mickey Mouse! Please see the attached document of our Troop Yells and try your best to familiarize yourself with the top 3 yells. If you understand, please reply back the lyrics of the We Got This Yell. I hope you guys can be very enthusiastic and energetic when we say these yells so we can impress everybody else at Camp. If you understand, please reply back in the most energetic and enthusiastic way possible.
- A Word From Your Author– So! Guys most of you know me a little bit. I’m Ethan Lee, and as Co-SIC of this Summer Camp I KNOW we are gonna have a great time. If you guys ever need anything at all, don’t hesitate to talk to me or Gabe or Harmon. Our experience and amazingness is unmatched! Are you as excited as I am? I sure hope so! Anyway some other tips you might want to know for summer camp… a nifty little list I jotted down a while back, and continue to add on to this day. See attached document.
- Opening Ceremonies– Just some reminders- please remember to not walk in during the flags ceremony. If you are a Color Guard, you do not have to salute while holding / following the flag. After the meeting ends, the Flags patrol must remember to clean them up and put it away.
- Patrol Yells- 4 of our 6 patrols had their yell ready to present to the troop. If you are not one of them have it ready for next week! Here they are- (Hydra) “Hail Hydra!” (Boss) “Boss!” (DA) “Expecto Patrolnum!” -get it? get it? (Blue Angels) “Blue Angels! Flying High! Blue Angels! Troop 765!”
- Summer Game: Ultimate Frisby– Dwageenz hosted a fun event of Ultimate Frisby. In 1st place was Hydra, 2nd place was Blue Angels, and 3rd was DA (but we shoulda won). Please remember to plan out your game completely and tell Miguel the deets of it. Make it a fun, timely Boy-Scout related game. If you understand, please email me back saying “My patrol will host (insert summer game name here) on (insert date here)” so I know you guys are ready 🙂 Details of who is doing the Summer Games next Below.
- Scoutmaster Minute- A reflection on 2 week’s ago’s 5 4 3 2 1 bit. It’s easier than it looks and shows proven results! Try it out sometime. If you understand, please email me back “#timetodosomethingwithmylife
- Rockin’ Jump– Sean Cooney has stepped up to become the SIC of this event! Don’t miss out on a giant bouncy house (well, not exactly, but you’ll see 🙂 with your friends! It’s tomorrow, Saturday July 9th from 10 am-12 pm! Email Sean to sign up NOW at seana.k.a.snorkelman@gmail.
- Be an SIC– As a pretty experienced scout myself, I’ve seen a lot of scouts come and go through the ages. What really separates one from another is how much they care. How much each scout cares to make a difference, help other people, and work on his own to the finale of Eagle. If you are a 1st Class or Above scout, I would say it is a MUST that you sign up for at least 1 event. It could be a campout, a fun activity, or even just one of the monthly hikes. Email our SPL email@example.com for more information. We need you guys.
- Summer Camp– See our amazing AIC’s (Mr. A) emails on updates on bag information, merit badges, what to pack and more! I strongly suggest everyone going starts packing now! Get all your gear, buy your new gear, and prepare yourself… Also if you guys didn’t know, me and Gabe will be your guys’ Co-SICs. Yeah, that’s right. We are in charge! (buahahaha) Anyway it’s also really important we think of a yell. Please read the attachment and tell me what you think by emailing me back “I like this one (insert Yell here) the best” and/or anything else you have in mind. People who respond to this one may get something more!
- Donut Sales– Okay I checked the Troop Responsibilities Website, and it is INCORRECT. During the meeting, it was said that DA & DWAGEENZ is in charge (DA first shift, Dwageenz 2nd). If you are in one of these 2 patrols, please go if you can. It is very important we have another successful donut sales. Also, whoever is doing it has to buy the donuts individually, because Mr. A will be unavailable. Email Mr. Taylor at firstname.lastname@example.org with any questions
- Scribe Notes Announcement– Sorry for messing up here guys. ALL OF YOUR INFORMATION IS RIGHT HERE. VERY IMPORTANT IF YOU LIKE SMARTIES (THE CANDY). So to be clear (ahem) I get to choose when I give you guys candy. It could be this week (wink wink) or it could be next week or it could be a month from now. You don’t know. Which is why you must respond to me EVERY TIME. Or else, you could not have responded one week when I would reward everybody else that responded to me. Get it? Any questions email me.
- SIC– During this PLC we had every single PLC member sign up for at least 2 events on the calendar, that was created by the Patrol Leaders beforehand. If you did not attend the PLC and are a member of it, signing up to be in charge of at least 2 events is critical. You don’t necessarily have to be the SIC, but you must take responsibility for finding a replacement SIC. You can plan it yourself in your own way, so don’t be afraid to sign up for something you are interested in.
- Summer Games– Every single patrol will have to host at least 2 Summer Games. Make sure your entire patrol is ready and knows what to do. Make sure you know when your patrol offered to sign up and has to host it. Make sure someone in your patrol (probably the PL) sends out an email to Miguel beforehand stating the setting of the game. ALSO PLEASE do your best to make the game Boy Scout related! If you have a game that includes Boy Scout information they might not know, ask the Troop beforehand in an email to study up certain pages in the book. The more they know, the more they will benefit in the game. If you understand, please respond “I will be a good Summer Gamer”.
- Member Responsibilities– Patrol leaders and members, I STRONGLY encourage all of you to think about making Aid-type positions for each of the people in your patrol. Give them a sense of responsibility that they use to grow up and be a leader, by becoming a Outdoor Ethic Guide Aid (see below), or a Mini-Scribe! Or a Mini-Quartermaster! Or a Mini-Grubmaster! I’ll leave it up to you, Patrol Leaders. If you understand, please respond with “I want to be a Mini-(Insert a position you are interested in here)!”
- Business Emails– Webmaster Spencer Lee suggests everyone with a position make an email with the format of yourpositionhere.bsatroop765@
gmail.com. For example- email@example.com. Now, I know I would send out an email using that email and not my personal one now, but once you are all set up and in the google groups you can contact anyone you need to! If you’re a younger scout you could email firstname.lastname@example.org for help advancing in rank! We plan on doing this in the future so for more information contact Spencer at webmaster.bsatroop765@gmail. com . The webmaster will probably later put these emails on the website.
- It’s time to Work- Summer is not just all about games and playing around, people. Summer is a period free of school; we can take up new opportunities and work to better the Troop and other people even more! For example, the 2 quartermasters of events want to re-style our entire camping gear. The 2 grubmasters want to create an example cookbook for good meals people can cook on campouts. The 2 webmasters are working hard to update the website! Please keep all of this in consideration.
- T-Shirt Design– We talked little of this in the PLC, but I got the design we voted for a couple of months ago to the SPL and the ASPLs. They will work to place the order with the parents and I will keep you updated with more information in the future. If you want to see the future design of our Class B shirts, please look at the attachment Luke Hornsten drew!
- Student Stress Release Workshohp– Miguel’s older sister kindly presented us an important opportunity to keep the SSR Workshop alive. We need older scouts to sign up to be in charge of the program to help younger kids deal with stress and other areas of life. At least 2 leaders would be very appreciated to organize events and help other people. You could also get community service hours.
- Orienteering Course– Nick Greco plans to host an orienteering course on November 5th. Mark your calendars.
- Fiesta Island– We decided to replan the date of this campout due to the fact that it was too close to another campout. The SIC (Ben Young) will find another date.
- Summer Games Responsibilities– PLEASE READ SO YOU KNOW WHEN YOUR PATROL IS TO DO THE SUMMER GAMES. Next week is Dwageenz. The week after that is Blue Angels. The week after that is A10. The week after that is DA. After that we will go in the same order as last time- so Hydra, Boss, Dwageenz, BA, A10, DA. Also, the (A)SPLs will make a Google Sheets record of the summer games, ranking of points, and the future responsibilities. Stay in tuned to this document.
- Hikes– We plan to have a hike the first Saturday of every month. It doesn’t necessarily have to be 5 miles or a mountain or a beach, but if you are in charge you get to decide who (by selling the event so people want to come), what (type of hike it is), where, and when! Be a leader!
- Outdoor Ethics New Group– Please see Gabe A’s recent email about this. To learn more about becoming an Outdoor Ethics Guide Aid please email him at email@example.com
- 1st Class Citizenship Requirement– On July 12, before the regular meeting, Mr. Cooney will host a 30 minute session where you can get signed off on this requirement! Max Meinert is in charge.
- Video Skills Instructions– As part of Adam Salem’s Eagle Project, he needs Older Scouts to help participate in making videos of skills instructions, where if you need help doing one or want the information you can look at them forever! Older scouts please help Adam by emailing him at firstname.lastname@example.org
- Troop Feast– It’s coming up! September 10, and your patrol better be prepared for this year’s end of Summer Games Finale! We gonna cook off, so practice making your yummy meals! (Anybody seen Cutthroat Kitchen? Look it up 🙂
- Del Mar Flag Raising– Congrats to everyone that went! A hearty thank you to SIC Gabe A. that organized it very well! Was a madly fun day at the fair! <- get that? HA!
- Flags, Outdoor Code, Chaplain’s Aide- So! I am proud to announce that Outdoor Ethics Guide Gabe A. had smartly asked me to fill in to say the Outdoor Code, since he knew he was not going to be there. Good job Gabe! And hopefully in the future all of you guys with positions yatta yatta yatta I said this before you should know what to do… Anyway please memorize it! It’s really not that hard and is as important as our Scout Oath and Law and such. By the way, if you guys know the Outdoor Code (which you should), please… enlighten me! Reply back with what it is (yes, even if you have to look it up 😛 but then you be a lmao) and you could be in for a tasty treat!
- Patrol Corners- Patrols stepped up for a date to organize a Summer Games. Ask your patrol leader when it is, what you are going to do, and make sure that everything is ready for a fun boy-scout related game!
- Summer Games– At the last minute, the Boss Patrol organized a Capture the Neckerchief! Teams squared off on the field of Ashley Falls and raced at the buzzer! Although teams were slightly unclear, and the game wasn’t completely organized, everybody had fun 🙂 I mean, I know I sure did!
- Cleanup- None today at Ashley Falls! Although remember Chaplain’s Aide, then Flags!
- 5 Mile Hike– See SIC Ryan Clairemont’s emails for permission slips, details, and what to bring. Email email@example.com
- Younger Scouts Need to Rank Up? Nick Greco is our Troop’s Guide. Talk to him for help. Email firstname.lastname@example.org
- Adam Salem’s Eagle Project- Thanks to all that went! Was fun and helped one of our own scouts on his way to Eagle!
- Philmont- WOWZA! Already 18 scouts and 10 adults have signed up already! YEAH! We got 2 full crews and even more that want to go! If you are interested and will turn 14 in 2 years then by all means please talk to Backpacking Guru Mr. Rodi, so we might have 3 whole available crews! In addition to that if you are already signed up please attend (and organize, too!) all of the hikes you can. During the upcoming 5 Mile Hike on Saturday you can practice wearing a bacpack and using water survival. Email email@example.com
- Del Mar Fair Flag Raising Parking Passes- Get them now! Talk to SIC Gabe A. or AIC Mr. Blume for the bargain value $150 for free! Email firstname.lastname@example.org
- Summer Camp Tent Buddies– Choose ’em wise, choose the ideal tent-mate, choose ’em quick, choose ’em before it’s too late! (A sad attempt on a rhyme), Please email Mrs. Altamarino you and your tent buddy’s name! Email email@example.com
- Summer Games Planning Info- Patrol Leaders must have materials ready before the meeting and contact Miguel with the details of the game. Please do your best to be creative with the game and keep it boy-scout related! Email firstname.lastname@example.org with your plans
- Flags, Outdoor Code, Chaplain’s Aide– Since we didn’t get the meeting started on time, we had to start it without chairs or tables. Even though it’s summer, we should still focus and not forget all of our responsibilities. I think everybody should get to the meeting place at 6:35 at the latest, so we can get the meeting started on time. If you understand this, please respond with “I will do my best to be at the meeting by 6:35”. One more thing- if you are the Patrol leader for the patrol that is in charge of flags or Outdoor Ethics Guide or Chaplain’s Aide, and you know you won’t be able to make the meeting, please make sure to find someone trustworthy (loyal, helpful, friendly yatta yatta yatta) to cover for your position. If you are one of the positions above, please respond to me “I have a person in mind if I am unable to attend a meeting.” (and think of someone too)
- Game by Hydra– We played a fun game of Gaga (if you don’t know what Gaga is look it up, but remember to put in “Gaga Game” otherwise it will just show the popular singer Lady Gaga) , in which Esteban was rightfully crowned champion. The Hydra patrol organized the game well, encouraging patrol spirit, fun, and the art of crouching like a monkey and defending your legs from the ball with your hands.
- Patrol Corners- Each patrol was led by their patrol leader in discussing the topics of future summer games they would be in charge of, fun patrol outings / meetings, and getting to know their potatos. If you understand that joke, just laugh at it. If not, wait till you are on the PLC.
- Cleanup– Remember to stack the right amount of chairs and that no trash is left on the ground.
- Adam Salem’s Eagle Project- Support one of our own scouts that is on his way to Eagle! Please sign up by emailing him @ email@example.com saying you want to go. Sign the permission slip that is attached in his emails and be prepared by bringing a hat, sunscreen and work gloves. The work days are on the 20th and 21st of June from 10 AM to 3 PM.
- 5 Mile Hike- SIC Ryan Clairemont has been working hard to organize this important event for getting some requirements signed off. Sign up and see other details in his emails.
- Del Mar Flag Raising- SIC Gabe A. has thoughtfully decided that anyone that wants to sign up last minute can do so if they do it right now! See his emails for the link to sign up, but the fun event is on July 1st from 9:30 AM to 12 PM at the Del Mar Fairgrounds! See you there!
- Summer Camp Tent Buddies– Summer camp is right around the corner and you want to ask your friend to be your tent buddy now! YOU will decide your fate, and another scout’s, on whether it will be an enjoyable 7 nights, or not… Don don don….
- Donut Sales- A big thanks to Max Meinert, who organized the month of June’s donut sales and sold a whopping 13 dozen donuts! Make sure your patrol has attendees, and buy more donuts if needed so you don’t run out! July’s donut duties are 1st Shift Boss and 2nd Shift A10. Don’t forget your responsibility and keep on selling!
- IMPORTANT PARENTS READ- Hello parents. With all of the events going on in our Troop a number of scouts are trying to rank up. They need YOUR HELP to stay at future meetings to be on their board of reviews and leadership reviews. Help these scouts by staying through Troop meetings and helping Ms. Seki with these reviews.
- Summer!!!!!– You can wear class Bs now! Yay! Make sure to have a Scout-Related Shirt, Scout Pants, and closed-toe shoes. Everything else is up to you! Also, the summer games. If you have an idea, get ready to present the troop with your game as each patrol will have to organize a game.

- Summer Camp- Start asking other scouts (preferably ones you like) to be your tent buddy! Unfortunately, guys, I’m taken ;P. Your tent buddy doesn’t have to be in your patrol, and choose wisely, for he will be your buddy for 7 whole days!
- Philmont– Over the next 2 years, we are going on a series of hikes in preparation for Philmont. Sign up now! Parents and scouts interested should talk to the Backpacking Guru Mr. Rodi. He has more information on this once-in-a-lifetime event. I’m going, so even more incentive to come! If you have any ideas for a possible hiking trip, please tell someone in the PLC or Mr. Rodi! More information to come.

- Game on Broken Bones– A10
- Cleanup Duty- BOSS
- For the majority of the meeting we did Patrol Corners on the topics of the Summer Games, Patrol Responsibilities (Scroll down for next week’s responsibilities), Patrol Communication, and other Future Events.
- Del Mar Flag Raising- SIC Gabe A. See his previous emails for more information. Sorry if you wanted to sign up, Signups closed June 1st. Tough toenails, buddy- you must be so “mad”. Event is on July 1st. Free admission to the annual Summer Fair – “Mad About The Fair”. Cool event! See you there!
- Philmont- Over the next 2 years, we are going on a series of hikes in preparation for Philmont. Sign up now! Parents and scouts interested should talk to the Backpacking Guru Mr. Rodi. He has more information on this once-in-a-lifetime event. I’m going, so even more incentive to come!
- Summer Games- Start thinking about it now, because it’s right around the corner! We shall be starting this soon. If you want more information email me. Remember that each patrol will be hosting at least 1 of these during the Summer, so be prepared to organize a fun Boy Scout related competition!
- Setup Duty- BOSS
- Greeter Duty- BLUE ANGELS
- Flag Duty- HYDRA
- Skills Instruction on Broken Bones-A10
- Game on- BOSS
- Cleanup Duty- HYDRA
- Camp Mataguay Shooting Merit Badges Campout – It is from June 2-4. Since it is coming up soon, we need to quickly plan this event to make it happen. If not enough people are interested, we will open up the opportunity for other troops to join in. For more info see AIC Mr. Meinert’s emails. Don’t miss this fun event!
- 5 Mile Hike– To avoid conflict with the event above, Andrew Kang is going to reschedule this hike for another time. So, please take advantage of the event above, as otherwise it will be another missed chance to do some exciting things.
- CCA- event needs volunteers for cleanup of senior’s Grad Night. Unfortunately, I do not have much information on this. If anybody else does, please email the troop or me about it.
- Philmont- Duh Duh Daaaahhh! I am 110% certain, and absolutely truly know that if you ask anybody that has gone to Philmont, that it meant billions to them. It’s an experience of a lifetime, seriously. More details on what it is to come (so stay tuned), but get interested now. Over the next 2 years, Backpacking Guru Mr. Rodi (thank him for all of the backpacking opportunities), will be leading some boys that will be over the age of 14 on many different hikes in preparation for the big event. Older scouts can help train some of these scouts. It is the ultimate camping, hiking, backpacking experience.
- The Hydra Patrol is 1st Shift for June Donut Duties. The Blue Angels patrol is 2nd Shift for June Donut Duties. Patrol leaders need to get their members signed up now. Let’s whip (cream, haha) these scouts into shape soon and sell some donuts and help our sponsor!
- Memorial Weekend Flag Placements– see the many emails the good Scout In Charge Juan C. has sent out. Please remember it’s not how many flags you place. It’s honoring each and every one of the men and women who bravely fought for our country. It’s honoring their sacrifice for the lives we have today.
- Patrol leaders- please, always talk to the members of your patrol about upcoming events. It is a good way for more people to understand how all these events are coordinated by people who work really hard for other people to enjoy.
- We should always have a Scout In Charge and his chosen assistant for any given event. You don’t always have to be an older scout to do it. If you need help you can always ask. It is a good thing to do and gives you a sense of responsibility and helps you grow to be a good leader. Patrol leaders, especially, should partake in doing this.
- Servant leadership. What is servant leadership? If one of you scouts happen to know it and are all the way down here in my email, respond back to me what the meaning of it is. I want to see how many of you go above and beyond to stay updated within the troop. Maybe there’s a lil something in it for you, too. 🙂
- June 13th is the first day of Summer! WOOOHOOO! Who else is excited? I know all of you are, because it’s the first day we don’t have to wear class A! Yeah, that’s right! Starting on that day, you MUST WEAR CLASS B: which does require a scout-shirt and any type of pants, but no open toed shoes. PLC members, you know what we talked about right? Patrol leaders know what they’re supposed to do? If not email me and I’ll remind you. It’s a secret…
- Guess what else Summer means? The annual Troop 765 SUMMMERR GAMESS!!!! It’s right around the corner, and during the PLC we talked about all the different terrifying, scary, awful suffer games we have for you… buahahaha… Nope! Just kidding, the Summer Games is a Troop competition between patrols involving fun, Boy Scout related games every week during each meeting. Things like team-based CTF, an obstacle course, a triathlon! Dumbledore’s Army is the patrol to organize the 1st round of the Summer Games, the date of which TBD. If you have any ideas whatsoever, please: Tell your patrol leader to bring it up at the PLC! You… could be the one… to change the entire destiny… of the Troop for a whole hour in the summer!
- The PLC Meetings during November and December will be moved to the 2nd Tuesday. Otherwise, the PLC would have gone without having met for a long time.
- For those that were once patrol leaders, I believe Mr. Taylor had given you each a Patrol Leaders Handbook. Something like this is very useful, and it would be great for it to be a thing passed down from generation to generation. Make it the treasured Skywalker’s Lightsaber. I truly do apologize if you haven’t yet seen the new Star Wars Movie, but seriously- don’t lose a Lightsaber. Please give it to the new patrol leaders and help them with anything they might need to become a better leader.
- Honor Patrols- We will be starting to have these soon. Patrols are very important, ya know. Patrols that participate and coordinate events, have high attendance and advancement will be awarded this. It’s easy to start and easy to do. Who will be an Honor Patrol?
Anyone interested in taking the CPR/1st Aid class on Sat. Jun 28th from noon to 4:00
please let me know, we need a minimum of 20 attendees. Scouts, this is part of the
1st Aid merit badge. Adults, we need a CPR trained parent for every troop outing,
the more the merrier! Everyone, this class is great basic knowledge that I hope you
will never need but is good to have in your back pocket.

Scribe Notes 7/9/13
Happy 4th of July weekend
- We are picking up trash next meeting for service hours
- Bring work gloves unless you like picking up trash with your bare hands
- You can wear Class B’s to meetings now or Class A if you really want to show scout spirit
- New class B shirts and jackets will be here in two weeks

Things we did
- Gnarly Narwhals did a skills instruction on setting up a tent (which is something EVERY self respecting scout should know)

- Assigned SIC’s for events
- We have many events planned but if no one signs up to be in charge for them, they will be cancelled. And we like events!
- If you are having trouble contacting people in your patrol, call them instead of just emailing. People feel guiltier after ignoring calls than emails. Trust me.
