Dec 10th, 2009 by Troop110

Monday, December, 14th is Troop 110’s “Winter Court of Honor.” We gather as an entire troop to recognize awards, rank advancements and Merit Badges the scouts have recently earned.  As usual other important information is also passed along to parents.

This COH is a dessert so every family brings a dessert to share and the whole troop is the service patrol.

What to Expect

  • Order of the Arrow Tap Out – A solemn OA event to nominate new members
  • All merit badge counselors need to fill out a new forms – Download HERE
  • 2010 Registration Collection – $55.00 per scout ($25 NFC registration; $24 T110 dues; $6 adult leader’s registration)
Shedule Change for Camp Blanding
Dec 10th, 2009 by Troop110

The troop will camp Friday night only and return to COOS late-afternoon on Saturday.

Anticipated weather on Saturday afternoon may cause the obstacle course and repelling tower to close.  This will adversely affect a number of our goals for the weekend.

A number of scouts need nights of camping for advancement.  By staying just Friday night helps this cause.   On Saturday we can still get some other requirements completed before returning to COOS.

Happy 40th Birthday Internet
Oct 30th, 2009 by Troop110

On this date in 1969 a message was sent 400 miles between two California university computers, laying the groundwork for the Internet and for to exist.

Then, in 1980 Tim Berners-Lee developed the concept of hypertext which became hypertext markup language (HTML) that makes today’s World Wide Web work. The Internet didn’t become a household word until the 90s when Berners-Lee, a British physicist invented the Web, the first Web browser and the first Web server. After those inventions, service providers like America Online (AOL) connected millions of people for the first time.

Scouts will have a good laugh seeing some of the early video games and computers the troop adults grew up with by watching a three-minute National Geographic video on the topic HERE
