Treasure Report:
1.  Letters have been sent to scouts who owe debts
2.  Scouts on the Waubonsie Trip will be charged an additional $3.00 to offset the additional trip costs.
3.  Scout Accounts policy was presented by Dan Shattil.  Dan presented a plan for each scout to have two accounts. One will be designated for 
fundraising and second for parent deposits.  The second (parent deposit) account can be refunded if a scout decides to leave the troop, whereas the fundraising account balance would stay with the troop.  Charges will always be taken out of the fundraising account first.  If here is not enough money in that account, money will be then transferred from the parent account.  January 1, 2005 will be the date for the conversion to this new method of accounting and all money in the current scout accounts will be deposited in the scout fund raising accounts.

2. Great Eagles are working on swimming to try to achieve First Class by the end of January

Scoutmaster Report:
1.  Tom is working on overnight accommodations for July 15, 2006, the night before summer camp arrival. Jerry Bricker suggested either a youth hostel or a National Guard Armory. The U.S. Air Force Academy only allows outdoor tent camping for Scouts. Peterson AFB and Fort Morgan Army Post have not responded. Another option suggested would be Colorado Springs Methodist churches.
