The troop also welcomed in several new scouts that crossed over from Pack 193 and Pack 185. An induction ceremony was conducted to welcome them into the troop. This was followed by the presentation of awards, with several scouts being recognized for having earned merit badges and rank advancement. Mr. Kindron awarded Elliott the Rank of Tenderfoot and Eammon the Rank of First Class. He also started a new tradition by presenting Eammon with a handmade Turks Head woggel. The woggle is all black to represent the troop colors. It is also a two stranded Turks Head made from paracord. All future scouts that achieve the rank of First Class will also receive this recognition.
Following the COH, Troop elections were held. Eammon was elected as the new SPL in a very close contest with Michael. Only one vote difference. Michael was appointed as the new ASPL. The Phoenix Patrol elected Greg as the new PL and Luke was appointed as the APL. The New Scout Patrol elected Gabe as its new PL and Carter was selected as the the APL.
My congratulations to all of the scouts in the troop tonight.
