Tayler Gongliewski was selected new Scout patrol leader with Kristoff Finley as Asst. Patrol leader and Alex Reber as Troop Guide.  If your application was submitted for new Scout patrol leader or Troop Guide please see me on Tuesday to change your desired position.

Signups for the Alaska Rock Gym outing (March 28-29) will begin this Tuesday.  Cost is $20.  A helmet is required and both Troop permission AND Alaska Rock gym liability forms must be filled out.  Youth and Adult liability forms can be found on the Alaska Rock Gym website while Troop permission forms can be found on the Troop website.
