Well the website I created last year for our troop lasted, oh, about 3-4 months, then I realized I was way too busy to keep up with it. I decided that instead we should just have a troop blog. Parents can upload photos directly to the site and comment on any events directly to the blog. Also, you can add your own blog entries about the troop if you take a minute to register. It's super easy, just look on the right hand panel and click on JOIN THIS SITE.
Most importantly, the calendar will show upcoming events, so if you have a question about future dates, take a look on the calendar on the right hand side.
If anyone has questions, I can bring my laptop to a meeting and run you through it.
