Troop 746 Turned 60 In 2012

A couple of years ago Troop 746 celebrated its 60th anniversary. Colin, one of our scouts designed the Anniversary patch. If you would like to see a short blurb about the activities of the weekend visit this page. Thanks to everyone who helped out and also to everyone who attended. We hope you had fun, we did. Here is a link to the video on You Tube that was professionally produced by George Stover of Adventure Productions. If you would like to have a copy of the video, here is a link from our website. Use Windows Media Player to play the video if using the link from this site.

60th Anniversary Patch
Beginning in 2008 a several of our scouts expressed an interest in documenting their experiences on Troop 746 camping trips.  Here in their own words are their experiences.
Troop 746 Tee Shirts

Do you want a Troop 746 Tee Shirt? One of the hottest things going on is the appeal of our very own Troop 746 tee shirts. Our very own Mr. Mike Cox is leading the effort to see that every boy in the state of Maryland, I mean everyone in Troop 746 has his own 746 tee shirt. If you want to know the what is available just print and fill out the order form and turn it in to Mr. Mike Cox with a check made out to Troop 746 to pay for the stuff you are ordering.

Inclement Weather Policy

If the weather is inclement enough to close the public schools, (and St. Joseph School follows the Baltimore County Inclement Weather Policy) all Scout activities will also be canceled for that evening.

Troop Uniform Policy

Class A Uniform (including neckerchief) should be worn at all times except for service projects or when otherwise noted. The neckerchief may be ommited durring the summer months between Memorial Day and Labor Day.

Troop Travel Policy

The Troop now has an official policy of traveling in Class A uniform. The troop leadership also decided that the neckerchief is part of the Class A uniform and as such should be worn to be in full uniform.
