Wow, it sure has been a long time since I sent a message to my Scouts. 

A lot has happened in the short time since I last posted. 

* A new PLC has been elected, with a new SPL (first timer)
* Your Scoutmaster has found a great job (can spend more time focusing on Scouting)
* We've lost some people...we didn't lose them, per say...we know where they are, they just aren't coming to meetings anymore.
* Our older Scouts are growing up (Ethan off to work at camp. Tyler off for adventures in Peru and behind the wheel)
* One of the Rocking Chair patrol is missing meetings now so that he can go back to college for 'extra credit'
* One Scout has returned with a new vigor, and has been handed some weighty responsibilities
* We had a troop swim where a few Scouts finished the requirements for 2nd and 1st Class (Way to go Sam, Dakota and Blake!)

There is a lot of good stuff coming up, too

* Summer Camp is always good
* New member of the Rocking Chair Patrol has been coming to more meetings, and he's ready to get Scouts in the troop!
* With the amount of advancement going on, we should have more Scouts who will be OA-eligible this upcoming year.

Once again, lots of great stuff happening in the troop, and it's a great time to be a Scout in Troop 1363
