Troop 108 Scoutmaster Bob Ludolph addressed the troop tonight as we circled up outside our meeting room as the sun began to set. He explained that he had accepted the lead role in the Pit Crew for the Nation Ford Marching Band for the coming season and didn’t feel like he could give both the Pit Crew and the scout troop his best effort and decided to step aside and allow long-time scouter Tim Whitesell to step up as the new Scoutmaster. Bob will continue as an assistant scoutmaster with the troop and will attend and assist where he can and plans to take on a larger roll with training on the district and council levels. Bob, we thank you for your leadership over the past two years and wish you the best of luck as you lead the Nation Ford Marching Band Pit Crew.
We welcome Tim Whitesell to step out of his Committee Member roll with the troop to take the helm of the adult leadership with the troop. The transition from one leader to another should be seamless as the youth of the troop continue to plan and lead our weekly meetings and Steve Finch continues to chair the Troop Committee.
