Good Turn Weekend: May 2nd - 4th we will be performing our annual "Good Turn" project to fulfill the pipestone requirement for all scouts and adults. Permission slips are due at the April 22nd troop meeting if you are not able to make this event you must see Mr. Smith.
Scout-O-Rama: May 10th Buckeye Council is brining back the Scout-O-Rama from 10am to 2pm and they need volunteers to run the different stations. We are signed up for a Dutch Oven station and need to be there to setup at 7am. Permission slips are due at the April 22nd troop meeting. We need help from both the scouts and the adult leaders to make this event successful.
Pipestone Wood: With the snow gone and the almost nice weather all scouts going for their first through fourth year pipestone should be collecting their pipestone wood. Any scout with questions should ask a fourth or fifth year scout for help.
Congratulations to our newest Eagle Scout: Congratulations to Matt R. on becoming the 60th Eagle from Troop 935. He joins a small percentage of Boy Scouts who have earned the Eagle Rank which epitomizes Scouting's best efforts and beliefs. May the high goals and ideals that have guided you here, continue to inspire you in the years ahead.
Law Merit Badge: On April 18th Buckeye Council will again be offering the Law Merit Badge, this is a fun merit badge that will allow the scouts to see how our legal system works. Since you will be visiting courtrooms and having lunch at a restaurant class A uniforms are required for this event. You can register for this on line at Buckeye Council's website or by sending the registration form (this also has the schedule of events) into council.
Eagle projects: This post will be kept open as we have several Scouts arranging work days for their projects. If you have a need for a posting please send an email to Mr. Smith to get this updated with current information. The latest Life to Eagle Packet has been posted and should be reviewed by all Scouts once they earn the Life Rank.
Cooking Merit Badge: Effective Jan. 1, 2014, the Cooking merit badge is required to obtain the Eagle Scout rank. Regardless of when a Scout earned the Life rank or began working toward Eagle, unless he fulfilled all the rank requirements—with the exception of his board of review— before Jan. 1, 2014, he must earn the Cooking merit badge to become an Eagle Scout.
Sea Base: Council is putting together a contingent for Sea Base for the summer of 2014 with plans to take part in the SCUBA adventure. Here is the flyer with the age requirements, cost and date information. There is a chance the travel dates will be different depending on the availability of flights and which airport is used. If you would like to join in the Sea Base adventure please see Mr. Smith for more information. Remember this is is called high adventure for a reason only strong swimmers and scouts that are in good physical condition should plan on attending.
Philmont: Council is putting together a contingent for Philmont for the summer of 2014. Here is the flyer with the age requirements, cost and date information. There is a chance the travel dates will be different depending on the availability of flights and which airport is used. If you would like to join this event please see Mr. Smith for more information. Please keep in mine you will need to be able to adjust to the different elevation to be able to partake in this event.
Medical Forms: BSA National has once again revised its medical form in 2014. The form consists of 4 parts: Parts A and B are to be completed at least annually by participants in all Scouting events. Part C is the physical exam that is required for participants in any event that exceeds 72 consecutive hours, for all high-adventure base participants, or when the nature of the activity is strenuous and demanding. Part D is required to be reviewed by all participants of a high-adventure program at one of the national high-adventure bases and shared with the examining health-care provider before completing Part C.

New BSA advancement requirements: A new edition of Boy Scout requirements released in January 2010 includes revised requirements for all of the ranks, major revisions to 5 merit badges, minor changes to 12 merit badges and the requirements for a new Scuba Diving merit badge. If a Scout started work toward a rank before January 1, 2010 using the requirements that were current before January 1, 2010, he may complete THAT RANK ONLY using the old requirements.

Homesickness: This is a fantastic article from a past Scouting magazine issue pertaining to dealing with homesickness. It gives a lot of good advice for leaders and parents pertaining to how we should deal with it. Please pay specific attention to the section titled 'Set up a no-call policy'. We have had to deal with this issue frequently. This is a reason we do not allow cell phones to be seen at campouts. While we can't control use inside a tent, we hope parents will understand, support, and reinforce our position to your sons. Not a Happy Camper
Welcome to the latest iteration of the Troop 935 website! Take a look around; if something isn't working right let us know. If you would like anything added, let us know that as well. Hopefully, all of the forms you need are readily available in one of the four headers on the left under 'Forms'. We have a few things to do here yet, including adding more to our picture pages and try a password protection area for family contact information, committee meeting minutes, Scoutmaster reports, Scout account status, summer camp payment status by Scout, and other things. For you 'old timers' out there, there are plenty of things that are missing and gaps that need filled in, so please feel free to contribute or offer missing details!
A PDF version of each program year is available in our 'Unit Information' link on the left menu.
