Board of Review HELP NEEDED

Posted on Sep 1 2018 - 2:57pm

Parents - the Troop needs your help during Tuesday Troop meetings to conduct Boards of Review. This is one of the important activities that parents need to participate in to keep the Troop running smoothly, and we are occasionally finding ourselves short of parents coming into the weekly meetings to seat BORs for all of the kids that are requesting advancement. 

As a starter, if your Scout has a BOR on any given Tuesday, please come inside and connect with Morris Owens or Matthew McGregor and sit on a BOR for one of the other boys who are also having a BOR that day. 

Participating on a BOR is an easy way to help the Troop go and to get to know the boys of Troop 842.  Don’t worry if you’ve never participated in a BOR before - it is a very easy open discussion meeting format, you will have a “script” to follow along with, and you will be able to follow the other adults lead in the BOR.
