March PLC meeting minutes and agenda:
Patrol Leader Reports - report on patrol boxes, flags, rank advancement, behavior, etc.
Rank System - Concerns voiced by scouts and parents. Discussed use and abuse of the system. Rank is an obligation for those of higher rank. It is not to be abused (eg. with lines, seats, etc.). However, this may not be clear to some scouts. Power can corrupt.
Sasquatch Patrol - Free from other patrol duties (eg. cooking and cleaning) to focus on leading. Each member of the Sasquatch patrol has a designated responsibility which he is held accountable for. As a reward, the Sasquatch patrol should have various high-adventure trips without lots of adult supervision.
Troop Guidebook - Committee looking into writing a troop guidebook that explains topics such as the rank system, the uniform, tradition, etc.
Quartermaster Update - Patrol tables ready for camporee, patrol boxes in fair condition (painting finished), all supplies ready, tents in repair process.
Librarian Update - Still missing some content, tasked to update and add to training (using sign-out system to scouts).
Meeting Improvements - Review meeting schedule for coming weeks and past weeks. Consider improving meetings in future.
