So when Darly & I went up to Tomahawk Ranch June 1st we met up with some very friendly scouts who live pretty close to us and have a very small troop of girls (just 3 scouts) a bit older than Darly. Darly loves scouting and was missing it since we disbanded the troop I used to lead.
I asked "Tink" the troop leader about Darly joining them and after several chats we decided to go ahead.
when Tink called up the GS office she learned that her co-leader wanted
to take over their old troop (kick Tink and her daughter out) but still
keep the troop going.
To have a troop you need at least 3 registered
scouts and 2 registered leaders. So to start a new troop for Tink's
daughter "Boo Bear" we needed another leader and hey guess who is a former leader?
ah Renee! no one asked me! They needed a leader, and just signed me up... I found out from GS, not from Tink.
I got the first email, letting me know that our new troop had been set up with the Leaders being Tink & myself. Second email said "welcome back!"
Actually Tink and I have been in communication a lot about this, but it is all after I get an email from GS. They aren't sending Tink the emails which is ODD because Tink paid my membership. :-/ Tink still doesn't even know how much they are charging her for the memberships...but I'll pay her back as soon as we find out how much...in fact I may just pay her the old rate and then the difference when we find out for sure if they charged the old or new rate.
It is sad funny what a mess GS is in due to lack of funds. They just laid off another 17 people from the office and no one there knows what is going on.
Darly will be heading to GS camp in about a week. Boo Bear is working at the camp this summer. Hopefully if things work out Boo Bear will be up there as well (it is kinda iffy because Boo can only work the first week of this two week camp. Normally they want the counselors to work the entire camp, but we're hoping they make an exception.)
In other news... We found out yesterday what theater classes we have to choose from and we found out two weeks ago what shows will be put on in the fall. We're still waiting to hear who will direct the shows before we choose our show. I might not be doing costumes...we'll see.
