We Welcome You To Troop 650!

Welcome to Troop 650. We have many exciting things to offer your boys to get them excited for the Scouting program, such as monthly campouts, fundraisers (such as the BBQ and campcard fundraisers to help them pay their dues or to help them go to Summer Camp), community service projects, and so much more. Boys will have a very fun experience in this troop, and they'll learn some very important things too. For more details, come check us out at Pinewood Presbyterian Church on Mondays (except school holidays) at 7:00pm. 

Please be aware that access to this site is limited to Troop 650 members only. To get access, you must be fully registered with the Troop. ~Thanks

Scout parents are often interested in what advancement, training or other records the troop has in their database.  Sometimes you just want to compare the scout handbook with the troops records.  Or you are out camping with your son, who forgot his handbook (again) and you wonder what requirements he could be working on during the campout.  Well you have two ways to check this information online.  First is to go to TroopMaster Web site. The link is located on the top right corner of this webpage.  OR you can download the TM Mobile app for your smartphone. It's free.  In both cases, you will be asked to enter your user ID and password.

Leadership Position Review - Monthly Reminder

Posted by Terri Dollinger on Sep 28 2016 - 1:39am

As a reminder, scouts holding leadership positions should have their monthly check off sheet reviewed towards credit of the time requirements for their rank advancement. Adult leaders will be available at Monday, October 3rd troop meeting to review your progress. Remember, the time does not have to be consecutive. There can be gaps and it doesn't have to be the same leadership position. You may want to keep your check off sheet even after the requirement is signed off in your book. It is the Board of Reviews responsibility to ensure the rank requirements have been completed. Your request for advancement can be denied due to your lack of response, or unpreparedness to questions asked about how you satisfied the leadership requirement over the required time frame. Your check off sheet will help remind you. Lost your position monthly check off sheet or need a new one? Forms are available under the Leadership PDs link.
