Troop SPL candidates needed

So far I have not had any scout call me to inquire about being a candidate for Senior Patrol Leader (SPL) for the troop.

Parents please talk to your scouts and let them know we need SPL candidates

We cannot run a boy-lead troop without an SPL.

The election for Senior Patrol Leader WILL BE HELD ON — Tuesday, SEPT.10 at the troop meeting at JayCee Park.

The following qualifications MUST be met for anyone running for the Senior Patrol Leader’s office:

  • Star or better in rank (if you are 1st Class, waiting for your BOR, you are eligible)
  • Maintain “better than average” attendance at all troop functions
  • Has read the Junior Leader Handbook and is prepared to accept all the duties and responsibilities of the office
  • Maintain a “C” or better average in school
  • Have the permission of the Scoutmaster
  • MUST attend a Troop JLT training session on Sept 28th.

All candidates for the job of Senior Patrol Leader are to contact Mr. Gustafson ASAP.

BE PREPARED to personally meet with Mr. G for about 1 hour, to discuss with him your views, goals, choice of ASPL’s and expectations of the troop this year.

BE PREPARED to discuss how you will perform your duties and responsibilities as outlined in the Junior Leader Handbook.

Also, each candidate must be prepared at the Sept. 10th meeting to say to the Scouts in the troop WHY he feels qualified to be elected to the highest position of responsibility in the troop.

This speech is not to be more than 2 minutes in length. Yes, this is YOUR campaign speech to the Troop.

If you have any questions, give Mr. G a call
