About Troop 9

Introduction - We have an active program run by the boys, but with much support from the adults. The Scouts organized their own patrols, with elected patrol leaders and a senior patrol leader. We go camping, hiking, canoeing, or caving more or less once a month, 12 months a year. Our program is active year round!

 Mike Welch Scout Master Troop 9

 Scoutmaster - Our Scoutmaster is Mike Welch. He can be reached by phone at (317)714-3610 or by e-mail at scoutmaster@troop9bsa.org.


Troop 9 - Uniform

Uniform - The official "class A" uniform consists of a scout shirt belt, and pants of course. Troop 9 does not wear neckerchiefs. The headgear is optional as well, but when it is worn, the hat needs to be a "Scouting" hat. The preferred hat is the baseball style Boy Scout hat.

Dues - There is $1.00 of dues every week that we have a regular meeting. There are no dues for Court of Honor nights, or the week of summer camp. Dues pay for things like awards and other miscellaneous expenses.

 Parent's Guide -  The Troop Committee created the Troop 9 Parent's Guide to help parents understand what Troop 9 is all about.   It goes into much more detail then the web site.  So, take a look by CLICKING HERE to download the guide.
Trail's End Popcorn
Fund Raising - The only fund raising activity that Troop 9 does is Boy Scout "Trail's End" Popcorn. The profits from the popcorn are split 50/50 between the scouts and the troop. Every year several scouts pay for all or part of summer camp with money they have earned from popcorn profits.
