My troop does not have "by-laws" per say. I don't believe in
making Scouting too much like the corporate world because
more rules tend to take all the fun out of it.
HOWEVER, I did write down a bunch of stuff in one place for
the new Scouts and their parents. It pulls together information
that's sprinkled throughout the Boy Scout Handbook. It explains
advancement, and patrols, and general stuff like that with
page number references to the Handbook.
There's also a LOT of stuff that's specific to our troop such as
meeting time and place
who our charter organization is
how to tell if meetings are cancelled due to weather
what the joining fee is
what fundraisers we do
when troop elections are (approximately)
The online version of this handout is
It's last year's version and I see I must do some updating.
