The most notable change is the addition of an "Early Bird" discount of $5 for signing up for an event 10 days or more in advance of the event. Several other fee policies surrounding partial attendance were also formalized.
On August 12 – 14, the Troop 84 scouts packed their bags and headed off to the Little Miami Canoe Rental in Oregonia, Ohio. When we got there we set up our tents and then ate a cracker barrel (Oatmeal Crème Pies) while we played card games; mostly Euchre and a new game called: Scum. Then we went to bed and woke up the next morning. For breakfast we had Cheerios and Pop Tarts with Sunny D and Bananas. Then we walked to the canoe rental and headed 8 miles up the river in a van. We had the rest of the day to canoe the 8 miles back up and be back.

On July 10 – July 16, Troop 84 packed their bags and headed off to the wonderful Camp Falling Rock to enjoy the week of summer camp. Each day the first year scouts would go to Brownsea, while the older scouts would earn merit badges. Liam, Abe, and I earned the Environmental Science merit badge; one of the hardest merit badges out there. Everyday we had delicious food and ate it all up. On Monday, everyone was settled in and had gotten blue cards for all of the merit badges they had wanted to do and started them.
