Old BusinessThe PLC discussed the New Scouts that we expect to be joining the Troop. A date has not yet been established for Crossover however it should be some time later this month. A Webelos outing is planned for Sunday April 4th.
The subject of ice axe training was discussed. Christian will coordinate an after-school ice axe training session with Dr. Brown.

The trip to Battleship Cove is scheduled for 22-23 May. Paul F and Michael will serve as the planning committee.
