Hello everyone, this is Lloyd here, your former webmaster.
As of the 9th of November, I have officially aged out of Troop 30. Thus, it is time to transfer ownership of the website and all future posts to someone new. In this case, it will be easy – my brother, Joseph. Hopefully the site prospers in the years to come under his leadership.
Thank you for the support across the many years I have managed this site. Here’s to many years to come for troop30bsa.org!
Despite the times we live in that doesn’t put an end to camping. During the week of the 18th-19th scouts across the council set up campfires and slept under the stars right in their own backyards. Here are some of the highlights our troop showed off!
Hey everyone, I hope that you guys are staying safe during this time.
I’d like to remind that we still in fact are going forward with scouting, however we just won’t be able to meet up for now.
Zoom calls every week will be held to have meetings and keep people caught up with things that they can do. There are also many merit badge opportunities from many of our counselors that would be beneficial for moving up the ranks, including ones required for Eagle!
Be sure to check your email regarding eligible merit badges, Zoom meeting times, and any other beneficial information.
We had a great time at Klondike this year – with the theme being the Back to the Future series. Sadly it rained all week rather than snowing, but luckily this year our stay at Macaller lodge helped us brave the weather.
While there wasn’t any snow, boy did it rain.
Each group made flags to go alongside their groups:
The flag of the Super Polish Chicken Patrol.
And our “sled” was by far our best yet. However somehow we got disqualified but we still don’t know entirely how… maybe the wheels? Maybe we were too good for the competition? Probably the latter.

We are very excited for next year… let’s hope it snows!
Sorry for the late announcement, but Spaghetti dinner is upon us again!
Here is all the information in this flyer:
Reminder that scouts are asked to sell 10 or more tickets. If we sell enough we will get a reward!
Troop 30 had a great time at Philmont Scout Ranch this year. We had a good turnout both Scouts and Leaders, and each person had a great time.

“Cowball” at Chase Cow. You’d have to be there to understand.
Looking forward – The start of the 2019-2020 school year is almost upon us, which means scouts will be starting up very soon. The first meeting will be held Monday, August 26th. This lines up for the first day of school of Avon Grove School District.
We are moving from TroopTrack to ScoutBook starting this year. Credentials should be sent to you via e-mail if you are a member. If not, contact a leader to get them.
This year we will be hosting Klondike for the Chester County Council! The theme is Marvel superheroes, specifically the Avengers. There will be many themed activities, including an obstacle course, ax throwing, rifle and archery, and more!
Also, new pictures are being accepted to the site! Contact me during a meeting and I will give you more information on where to send them. Here are some photos from our recent French Creek trip:

This cabin provided temporary shelter against the elements.
