Rules

  • Attending meetings every week is a must.
  • Weekly meetings start at 7:00 p.m. SHARP so arrive early!
  • At the start of every meeting, all scouts are to be in Class A* uniform.  This does not mean scouts are still changing into their uniforms. This also means that hats, coats, and jackets are to be off.  (The only exception to this would be pre-scheduled activities that require the Class B** uniform.)
  • Everyone must bring paper, a pencil or pen, the calendar, and their copy of the official Scout Handbook to every meeting.  It is a good idea to keep everything in one binder.
  • All patrols are to be organized in the manner agreed upon by the Patrol Leaders.
  • All money for outings is to be collected no later than the due date specified on the permission slip, before the close of the meeting.  All money is non-refundable once food supplies have been purchased.  Completed permission slips, with parent signatures, are to be turned in at this time also.
  • Attendance of an outing should be for the complete outing.  However, if prior arrangements are established, allowances can be made.
  • Scouts in leadership positions (SPL, ASPL, Scribe, etc.) must attend three out of four weekly meetings per month.  If three meetings in a row are missed, the scout will have a conference with the Scoutmaster and be put on probation.  If three more meetings are missed, the scout must resign from his position.  This means that no credit will be given for serving in that position.
  • Once requirements for rank advancement are met, including fulfillment of all leadership responsibilities, the scout should schedule a Scoutmaster Conference.  After receiving the Scoutmaster Conference, arrangements for a Board of Review can be made.
  • Parents/Guardians must be involved with Troop activities in some way.  This could include serving on Boards of Review, serving as a merit badge counselor, driving to and from outings, assisting with fundraisers, or otherwise helping as needed.
  • Scouts and their parents/guardians must uphold and abide by the Troop standards, expectations of behavior, and Discipline Process and Consequences as set forth in the Troop 1814 Operations Manual.
