Troop 7 Weekly Meetings
on Wednesday Evenings
Our regular Troop meetings are held every Wednesday evening from 7:15 to 9:15 pm at our Scout Cabin (in the middle of the Granada Golf Course, at 1107 South Greenway Drive in Coral Gables). For those of you out there who are a bit more technologically advanced, according to our GPS our coordinates are: 25° 45' 13" N and 80° 16' 29" W.
Please be on time! We also try to finish on time and ask that your parents try not to be late for pickup. (But we hope they will be patient if we are a few minutes late or if it is your turn to help with clean up.)
Each month one of the Patrols will be responsible for cleaning up the Scout Cabin, which usually takes up a Saturday morning. The Patrols also, on occaison, plan other activities of their own.
Twice a year (September and March) we have a Court of Honor to recognize the advancements earned by our Scouts. This includes a covered dish supper.
And perhaps most important of all, we try to schedule at least one overnight camping trip each month. SCOUTING IS OUTING!
Most of the activities at our Troop meetings vary from week-to-week, but we always have a formal opening and closing ceremony. If your parents are there for either the opening or the closing they should either join us (all our welcome!) or wait quietly outside.
At our opening the Scouts take turns leading us in the Pledge of Allegiance, reciting of Scout Oath and Law, etc.
At the closing we all join hands in a "Circle of Friendship," hear the Scoutmaster's benediction and pass a handshake around the Circle. The last item is always the famous Troop 7 Yell. Everyone remains in the circle until the yell is finished.
