About The Website
Troop Resources are only available to troop members, to become a member click the "signup" button at the top. To log in click the "log in" button. The webmaster will have to approve you before you can access the troop resources. Contact the webmaster here if you need help, or talk to him/her at your next scout meeting. Pages that are only available to the troop with the exception of this page will have a blue header, like the one shown above.
Troop 71 requires members to log in to the website in order to access certain information, this protects our scouts. Logging in with Google/Facebook is the preferred method, as it is faster and you don't need to remember your account password. If you have a Google account but don't want to sign in with Google, you can sign with an alternate email address.
Be over the age of 13, or have had a parent sign the COPPA release form (located on the back of the photo release form.
It may take a bit to become a member, as the webmaster needs to verify your identity.
