Troop 0750 Tribune for August 15th

View this email in your browser ( Meeting this Week We will be planning for the cooking competition next week and will have the kick-off for the Popcorn Fundraiser starting at 8pm tonight. Parents are encouraged to attend the presentation on the Popcorn Fundraiser.
Troop Leadership Training (TLT) Training for all scouts newly elected to a troop position / patrol leader. We will be meeting at the church this Saturday, August 17th, from 9:00am – 1:30pm. A pizza lunch will be provided for all attendees. If you cannot attend, please let your SPL Joseph Schuessler know. If you’re a patrol leader and cannot attend, please speak to your assistant patrol leader about attending.
Personal Fitness As many of you may know, the Personal Fitness Merit Badge is required for those seeking to attain the rank of Eagle. Troop 750 is in the very early stages of assessing the level of interest among the Scouts in accepting the challenge of earning this badge.
As a matter of introduction, this badge is one of three badges in the program which require a twelve week effort on the part of the scout. The curriculum will cover topics in the areas of physical development, spiritual, mental and emotional fitness, nutrition, and vocational opportunities in the various associated fields of interest.
Additional details of the program format, days in which our group will meet, general organization etc. will be forthcoming once we have a good sense of the level of interest. The opportunity is available to all scouts. However, due to the level of commitment required and dedication expected to successfully achieve a positive result an inherent level of maturity will be helpful.
Sign-ups were solicited at the meeting last week and will be taken again his week. If additional information is needed, you may contact Mr. Ed Spencer, ( or Mr. Adam Kehl, ( or speak with us at the weekly meeting. If you are interested but unable to attend the meeting to sign up in person, please contact one of us to let your interest be known. We are looking forward to great sessions in the coming weeks and sincerely hope you will join us for the adventure.
