Next Outings
Our next outing is this weekend, Peterloon! The troop will be departing HPC Friday at approximately 5:30 PM and driving to the Loveland area. Cars will not be permitted on Cub World property (where we are camping), so we will be dropping off at a remote parking site off of Wards Corner and shuttle in to Cub World. Please pack light for the ride down as you will be required to carry any gear you have from shuttle drop off point to our camp site. Sunday the troop will shuttle from Cub World to Wards Corner, and then back to HPC. We will try to notify the Troop when we are departing Cub World (we will have to wait in line for the shuttle to Wards Corner). Thank you for those that volunteered to drive the Scouts to and from Peterloon!

Troop 750 Shutterfly Account
Since we have so many new Scouts and families, and we haven’t posted the information in awhile, many of you may not realize Troop 750 has a Shutterfly account that allows you to upload and add photos taken at scout specific events. It allows all members to view, print and enjoy even when they aren’t able to attend our events. The website is here: https://bsaheritage.shutterfly.com/
If you already have an account with shutterfly simply log in and you will now see the BSA site shared with you. If you do not have an account, please create a user id/pw. If you cannot access the site and you want to be added to the shutterfly account, please send an email to Mrs. Enouen at denouen@zoomtown.com with your desired email address. It’s a great way to share the many memories from Troop events!

Merit Badge Counselor (MBC)
Are you interested in getting involved to help our Scouts? Would you like to become a Merit Badge Counselor? Check on this link to take a look at the MB’s available, http://boyslife.org/merit-badges/ , and get in touch with Jen Ponstingle (jponstingle@gmail.com) to register! We really like to have all of the Eagle required MB’s covered by an adult in the Troop and are currently in need of MBC’s for Sustainability and Environmental Science – if you have interest in this area, please let us know.

Eagle Projects
Please watch for Eagle projects scheduled on the troop calendar! There are several upcoming projects over the next few months. With all of the commitments our Scouts and Scouters have from fall sports to marching band (and other commitments), if you have a few hours you can contribute in support of our Life Scouts, all time is appreciated!!!

Fall Court Of Honor
Our Fall Court Of Honor is almost here! October 27th, please mark your calendars now! In order to prepare properly, we will have to cut off all advancements two weeks prior to the 27th. So if you want any of your rank advancements, merit badges or other special awards recognized on the 27th, please have all sign-offs, blue cards, etc., completed no later than October 4th to have them included in our Court Of Honor. This will allow us to prepare all advancement cards.

Advancements and Eagle Projects
Scouts needing a Board Of Review should contact our Advancement Chair, Mrs. Enouen at denouen@zoomtown.com. Scouts needing Eagle Scout Project Approval should contact Mrs. Peischl at
gpeischl@cinci.rr.com. Before scheduling your Board of Review, please request your TroopMaster records so that we can confirm all rank advancement requirements have been met.
