The patrol leaders’ council is made up of the senior patrol leader, who presides over the meetings; the assistant senior patrol leader, all patrol leaders, and the troop guide(s). The patrol leaders’ council plans the yearly troop program at the annual troop program planning conference. It then meets monthly to fine-tune the plans for the upcoming month.
Only members of the PLC or Patrol Leader’s Council (listed above) need to attend monthly PLC meetings. The PLC is held on the Monday following the second Thursday (which is district roundtable night) so that any information brought up at the district roundtable can be considered in planning for the upcoming month’s meetings and future outings.
There is no official opening or closing and it will end as soon as the Patrol Leader’s Council has completed their meeting.
Troop 108 provides canoes for Earthday attendees to enjoy to paddle around the lake near the Dairy Barn on the ASC Greenway between 10AM and 2PM. This year we will stay after the Earthday festivities are over and camp overnight in the field near the lake we’ll be canoeing in.
Parents are asked to drop off their scout(s) with their camping gear at 9AM on Saturday at the Dairy Barn. Please make sure all scouts bring their scout book with them to work on activities after 2 o’clock.

Coming up on April 1st through the 3rd at the Winthrop Athletic Complex in Rock Hill is the annual council camporee event. This event will have scouts from all over the 6 counties of Palmetto Council together in one location for a fun-filled event where there will be merit badge classes and other fun activities. The weekend will be a busy one, so the scouts have been relieved of cooking duty too – the food is provided and has been included in the cost of the event – $25.00.
Scouts should plan on dropping by the troops meeting location next Monday night, March 14th, from 7pm until 8pm during the Patrol Members Council night to submit their desired merit badge selections and pay for the event. Mr. Whitesell will be available to get you signed up at that drop-off night. There are two blocks for merit badge classes during the day (see below) select one badge from each of the two blocks. There are also some merit badges that will be taught on Saturday night as well that can be selected in addition to the two daytime merit badge blocks. There are also three more detailed merit badges that will take longer to work on and will require both Blocks 1 & 2 and are listed below as “All Morning” classes.
Scouts should select one merit badge from Block 1, one merit badge from Block 2 (or one merit badge from the “all morning” group) and one merit badge from the Twilight merit badge offerings (if they don’t already have them) and bring those (written down with their name on it) along with payment of $25 to the March 14th PLC meeting between 7pm and 8pm to give to Mr. Whitesell.

The 2016 new member campout is a great time to welcome our troop’s newest members and to get to know them better and help them feel like a part of our group. We will be camping in the established campsites near the Rush Pavilion on the ASC Greenway (come in the entrance off of Hwy 21 Bypass opposite Colthorpe Road).
Scouts can be dropped off with their gear begining at 5pm on Friday, March 11th picked up no later than 5pm on March 12th, 2016. Both the drop off and pick up locations are the same – The Rush Pavilion on the ASC Greenway.
ASM Tracy Ross will be working with those scouts who are taking the backpacking merit badge on Saturday during the campout. They will learn to pack a pack, cook some on-the-trail type meals and wrap up the day with a hike that will get them back to the pavilion in time to be picked up by their parents.
Cost is $10 (a small paypal fee will be added if you pay online making your total $10.61)
