***YOUTH LEADERSHIP TRAINING (NOV 23)***
********************************************************
I will be holding a 3-hour youth leadership training on Saturday, November 23rd @ 2:00pm. Any scout that is holding a troop leadership position is encouraged to attend.
This training will be focused on explaining the duties and responsibilities of each of our youth leaders and developing good leadership practices. This is the same location as our gaming lock-in which will start 30 minutes after this training ends.

Saturday, November 23rd -- 2:00pm - 5:00pm

***GAMING LOCK-IN (NOV 23-24)***
*******************************************
Our overnight "Gaming Lock-in" will start at 5:30pm on Saturday, November 23rd at the Southeast Restoration Corporate office on Old Hwy 5. Since our program theme in November was GAME DESIGN - this lock-in will feature a selection of different group games. We will play several large-group SOCIAL games, a few small group BOARD games, CARD games, ROLE-PLAYING games, and later in the night will have console and computer VIDEO games.
If your scout wants to bring a video game console - please make sure to bring extra controllers and label them appropriately.

***DISCORD CHAT SERVER***
*************************************
The Patrol Leaders Council wants to experiment with a troop-wide chatroom where they can post not just announcements, but communicate with their patrols, share ideas and become closer as a team. Some of you adults might be aware of a chat program the kids are using called "Discord". A large number of the boys already use this chat app on their phone or computer to talk with friends at school or video gaming. The PLC would like to use this app for their troop-wide chat rooms.

I have agreed to support this and set it up on a provisional/test basis; but it will be subject to strict rules. It will have be monitored by multiple troop adults and there will be a zero tolerance for inappropriate use. I want to help the boys improve their communication with each other, but also keep everything safe and scout appropriate. If done right, the boys may develop stronger friendships within their patrol.

This is an OPTIONAL communication tool - YOU should choose if you wish to allow your scout to participate or not. If you wish to allow your scout to join the Discord Chat, or you are willing to join, yourself, as an adult monitor here is an invite link - https://discord.gg/ka95faR
