Have you ever wanted to take part in the world’s largest Scouting event? Make new friends in faraway places? Find out what other Scouts are doing in their packs, troops and crews? Discover the magic of communication without wires or a monthly bill? Then you’ll want to take part in Jamboree On The Air, the annual worldwide gathering of Scouts via amateur, or “ham” radio. Scouts of any age can participate – Cub Scouts, Boy Scouts, Venturers…Girl Scouts too! There will be a JOTA amateur radio station at the Super Day of Training event at First Presbyterian Church, 26165 Farmington Road at 11 Mile, from 9 am to 4 pm on Saturday, October 15. You’ll find out about amateur radio and have an opportunity to talk on the air with Scouts in far-flung places, and learn how easy it is to get started earning your own amateur radio license. No need to register – just stop by, and there’s no cost. For more information, contact Frank Maynard at

It has been a great summer!

Summer camp, high adventures, 2 MIS races and troop meetings have made it fun for all of us!

First troop meeting is September 6th at Meadows 5th grade house. We’ll be back to meeting every week that school is in session.

Hope to see you there!

Merit badge name change

moviemakingThe latest change to the merit badge system took place this week with a name change. The Cinematography merit badge will henceforth be known as Moviemaking.

The change was made to recognize the fact that cinematography is just one part, albeit an important one, in the process of making a movie. The badge covers the full range of cinematic expression, not just the camera and film part.

The requirements remain largely unchanged but have been updated slightly in light of the name change.

You can read more about the change here. Scouts wishing to earn the Moviemaking merit badge should follow the usual procedure – visit with the Scoutmaster to obtain a blue card and a referral to a counselor.
