Quick tips on registering for Events via the Troop 63 Website

Posted on Oct 2 2020 - 5:20pm

To All,

Just a reminder that for most planned events Troop 63 will need signups via website events. For smaller events, example: a patrol-sized outing, formal signup may not be required. But for most trips and many other events it is very helpful to have a live central count and roster so we ask that all Scouts and parents be familiar with how to register for an event online

To sign-up for an event you must login to the Troop website. EBlast notes will normally include the information about an event within the e-blast announcement message, such as this one. You can always tell if you can register for an "Event" by noticing it listed in the "Event Registration" area (normally a white block in the top-right of the eblast message). Click the link under the "Event Registration" area and you will be taken directly to the Troop website. When prompted click "Login" and provide your login name and password.

Note: If you have forgotten your Troop username or password you can use the "Request new password" link. If you know the username you can enter it but if not provide the email address to which you recieved the eblast message. The website will create a new password for the account and send it to the email address on record.

Once you login the event you clicked on in the message should display. To register the account you are using click the "Register" button. All family members, for example the Scout of a parent's account, can be registered with this button. If you need to register other Troop members click the "Register Others" button and select names as appropriate.

Follow the remaining steps to confirm your registration.

Should you need additional help with this, please send an email to jbakter [at] verizon.net for additional information.

Congratulations to David S.! Newly Elected Troop 63 B Senior Patrol Leader

Posted on Aug 31 2020 - 12:01pm

To all,

Troop 63 is pleased to announce the David S. was elected by Troop 63 B to be its next Senior Patrol Leader! We wish him the best of luck as he starts his SPL reign! For those Scouts interested in participating in a youth leadership position that requires appointment, you should contact David and share the position you would like to fill.

We also take the time to congratulate and thank Jake S. for his service as he ends his tenure as SPL. This was a year challenging in many different ways than the typical Scout year. Jake did a great job navigating the Troop 63 B through these uncharted waters.

Three full Scout-spirited cheers for our new T63 B SPL! Huzzah, Huzzah, Huzzah!

Revised Troop 63B Plan for 27 to 30 Aug

Posted on Aug 25 2020 - 6:22am

Our original plan to have a campout at the church property has been converted to gathering Saturday, August 29 in the morning from 9 am to noon to work on the Safety Merit Badge. Scouts will go home for lunch and a break and then come back at 7:30 pm for a movie night. The movie will be selected at the meeting on Thursday, August 27. The meeting this Thursday will be via the troop Discord server. The Senior Patrol Leader candidates will each give a brief speech and the Engineering Merit Badge will be started.

Scouts will vote this year for the SPL by emailing your vote to me at thetaylor3family[at]gmail.com by Friday, August 28, 2020 at 9 pm. Please copy one of your parents on the email to me, in the interest of Youth Protection.

Contact Jacob if you have any questions or issues with connecting via Discord.


Mr. Taylor
