Eagle Project that needs your help

We love to hear about Scouts that are setting goals and achieving them.  One such Scout is doing just that as he has planned a special Eagle Project.  This project will be a soccer clinic for kids with special needs.  This is being done to introduce them to soccer.  It is anticipated that there will be over 140 kids at the camp.

Volunteers are needed to act as buddies at the soccer clinic.  If your troop is available to offer a helping hand, please let Tanner know. 

Here is an excerpt from the flyer:

Please e-mail Tanner at sparta96white@yahoo.com  if you have a sibling or parent who would like to volunteer as a buddy!

Lots of Merit Badges Being Earned

We have been helping Troops track advancement now for just over three years.  Since that time there has been significant growth in the number of Troops that use our website.  If you haven’t signed up for our Scout Tracking module, get started today.

As of this morning, our system has been used to record over 103,000 completed merit badges!  Congratulations to all of the leaders that are working with these young men.  The number of completed merit badges continues to grow each day.

The most common merit badges completed are:

  1. First Aid
  2. Environmental Science
  3. Swimming
  4. Citizenship in the World
  5. Citizenship in the Nation
  6. Citizenship in the Community
  7. Communications
  8. Emergency Preparedness

  10. Leatherwork

We are suprised that Basketry didn’t make the list. 🙂

It is great to see so much progress.  Keep up the great work that you do.

Report Delivery Problem

Many of you have noticed that all of the reports scheduled for this past weekend did not get delivered.  This was due to a bug we found in our report generator module.  We have fixed the problem and feel confident that reports will be sent out now to all those who have subscriptions setup.

We would like to thank those of you that have provided feedback on this issue.  It helped us identify where the problem was.

If you have subscriptions scheduled for this weekend, let us know how it goes.  If you do not get reports like you thought you should, please let us know.
