***But wait--there's more!***

As many of you may or may not have noticed, I have been missing every other Troop meeting becuase of musical committments I have made. If any of you are interested in being an alternate Scribe for the Troop (all you would have to do is write the notes for the Troop meetings I am not in and send them to me; I can take care of the rest), you can either contact Jake Kloman and he can get back to me or you can email me directly. Keep in mind that you would only have to do this until the next Elections at the end of January.

Thanks a lot,
