If you have an older book, you should print THESE REPLACEMENT PAGES so that you are up to date with the requirements that became mandatory on 1/1/17.  You do not lose credit for any requirements completed, but you must meet all the new requirements in order to advance to the next rank. 

The Conservation Project requirement for Life seems to cause a lot of confusion for Scouts

The best and most consistent source we have is the BSA’s “Conservation Good Turn” award which can be viewed in its entirety by clicking here.

Although you DO NOT need to complete this award to satisfy the requirement, we do ask that you use it as a guide when you and your patrol together explorer patrol projects that would.  The following is an excerpt which should serve as your guide when organizing projects that would satisfy the requirement:

Boy Scouts, Varsity Scouts, and Venturers - Suggested projects include, but are not limited to

  1. Plant shrubs to provide food and cover for wildlife.
  2. Build and set out bird and squirrel nesting boxes.
  3. Conduct stream improvement projects to prevent erosion.
  4. Plant grasses and legumes to provide ground cover in schoolyards, public parks, and recreation areas.
  5. Plant tree seedlings as part of a managed forestry plan.
  6. Help thin and prune woodlands in a managed tree improvement project.
  7. With a local forester, take part in or conduct a forest fire prevention program.
  8. Make an exhibit on conservation for a county fair.
  9. Develop a nature trail in a public park.
  10.  Assist a local forester in a tree insect- and disease-control or public education project.
  11. Assist a local agency with a trout stream restoration project.
  12. Participate in a wildlife or wildfowl count.
  13. Conduct a rodent-control and public health education program under the guidance of the local health department or agency responsible for rodent control.

To verify the completion/satisfaction of this requirement, we ask that you FIRST arrange the project with either the Campmaster or Ranger of the facility, THEN carry out the project and have the Campmaster/Ranger document and verify the hours worked and that the project was satisfactorily completed.

Troop 101 Scouts have a special opportunity over the next few months to participate in some great programs!

On Thursday, December 1, the Troop 101 Honor Guard will present the flag for the opening of the Cavaliers / Lakers game in Cleveland.

On Saturday, February 18, 2017, at 12:15 PM, the Troop 101 Honor Guard will lay a wreath at the Tomb of the Unknown Soldier in Arlington National Cemetery near Washington, DC.  Changing-of-the-Guard 

How does a scout get to participate and join the Honor Guard?  Between now and each activity, Scouts are being judged on three criteria.  Those with the most points get to participate.

  1. Uniform / Impression - is it neat and pressed?  Are all the patches on and in the right places?  Do you wear it every week?  Beyond just the uniform, do you make a favorable impression when people observe you?
  2. Attendance / Participation - Scouts who want this opportunity are the ones who are attending meetings and events regularly.  And they are not just attending, they are participating and contributing to their patrol and the troop.
  3. Marching / Flag Handling - can you keep in step?  Can you do a proper about face without landing on your face?  Mr. Szewczyk and other ASM's will be at meetings 30 minutes early to help those interested in learning and drilling.

Additional details on the Washington DC trip:  Feb 17 (Friday) leave Warren early am, 18th Saturday 1130 have to be at Arlington Tomb of Unknown Soldier. The actual presentation is at 12:15 (possible tour after) 4 Honor Guard Scouts will present, 4 Honor Guard will be on either side of stairs (2 on each side) other scouts will be behind them on the stairs all in uniform.

Friday night was an event in itself, with snow reaching the tops of boots, and tires spinning on the slopes.

Saturday, the inches of snow turned into snow creations, then melted away to reveal the mud below. The rockets fizzed, the catapults caused snowballs to soar, and the sun shone high in the sky, warming our February trip to Custalogatown.

Family Camp & 40th Reunion

True to 101 camping, it rained, but that didn't dampen our spirits as we celebrated and had fun this weekend.  A lot of history and stories were shared between generations near and far.  One of our Eagles even flew in from Alaska to visit!

The day started like most family camp trips, canoeing around Pymatuning, but took a turn after lunch when each patrol was handed a frozen t-shirt, and told the first one to put it on would win a special treat.  Competition was fierce, but the Owl Patrol took the lead and secured victory.

The group spent the remainder of the afternoon over at the lake swimming and playing with a Frisbee.  Meanwhile, back in camp, dinner slowly turned over coals and guests began arriving from near and far.

Dinner was excellent, from sides to the main dish, an Ox Roast... 100 lbs of it!  Special thanks go to Erik Hoover of Cockeye BBQ and Matt Kassos of Premium Meats!  Both dad's have Scouts in the Troop.

After dinner we had a campfire led by Dr. Ken LaPolla.  Songs and skits, followed by a short slideshow highlighting our last 40 years.

Photos from the event can be found in the Troop Photo Gallery.  If you took photos, please send a disk to Mr. Matt or Jim Potjunas with your photos so we can add them to our collection.  Please print your name on the disk so we know who to thank.

Thank you to everyone that was able to attend, or help with the Event.  We would also like to give a shout out to the Kuszmaul family for the extra hours and time they put into this past weekend!

To: National Board, Advisory Council, and our BSA family:

We are all struggling to come to grips with the tragic school shooting in Connecticut. I have the sad responsibility to report that this tragedy has also struck within the Scouting family.

We’ve been informed two of the young victims, 7-year-old Chase Kowalski and 6-year-old Benjamin Wheeler, were new Tiger Cub Scouts with Pack 170 in the Connecticut Yankee Council. In addition, three of the victims were siblings of other boys in Pack 170. Victoria Soto, one of the hero teachers, was an Explorer as a youth.

Please join me in remembering these victims and families in your prayers.

We have been in touch with council leadership. The National Council is offering any support possible during this difficult time. 

Working with the leadership of Pack 170, the Connecticut Yankee Council has established a memorial fund in support of the five families. If interested, donations, cards, and letters can be sent to the Pack 170 Memorial Fund, c/o Connecticut Yankee Council, P.O. Box 32, Milford, CT 06460

God bless everyone as we take a step back and think about the safety and well-being of our own families and loved ones in the midst of this national time of mourning

The Trumbull County Bar Association is starting a new career interest based Exploring Post for young men and women interested in learning about careers in the field of Law.

Law Explorer Post 4024 will hold its first meeting on April 26th from 3:30 – 4:30 at the Trumbull County Family Court Building, located at 220 South Main Avenue Warren, OH

The Post will meet monthly, giving Explorers the opportunity to meet with attorneys, judges, and elected officials. Explorers will also learn a great deal about the legislative process and a variety of specialized practices.

Please share this information with anyone, between the ages of 14-20 who are interested in the field of Law.

Space is limited – Reserve your space by April 20th by calling Alex Savakis at 330.675.2317 or email at

To join you will be asked to fill out a registration form and submit a registration fee of $16.00 which is good for one year.

Wed Mar 07, 2012
The BSA requires that every Scout and active leader have a physical exam once a year. Scouts will not be able to participate in programs such as summer camp or the bike trip without one. Later in the spring we will work with the physicians in the troop to provide exams at no charge during a meeting. However many Scouts and adults will be getting exams from their own physician anyway. It is extremely helpful if you take in the Scout Form and get it filled out at the same time.

By the time summer camp comes around, our coordinator, Jack Norton, will need to obtain over 80 forms (Parts A,B, and C) as well as copies of your insurance cards. The more we get done early, the better. You cooperation would be very much appreciated. HERE is a link to the form.
