Meetings are held every Monday night with occasional exceptions for holidays and events that occur on Mondays. Meetings are at Cove Methodist Church from 7:00 PM until 8:30 PM.
Meetings typically open with a troop wide gathering run by the Senior Patrol Leader (SPL). The opening flag ceremony is held, announcements made and things of common interest are covered. Sometimes troop wide skills training will take place.
After the troop wide gathering, the boys break into patrol meetings to work on specific things they need to work on.
The meeting closes with another troop wide gathering under the SPL's leadership and has the Scout Master Minute. Any advancements or awards are recognized and the closing is held.
After the formal meeting closing, the boys then play some game like basketball, football, tag etc. During this time some boys also have their scout master conferences, meet with merit badge councilors if they are at the meeting, have their board of reviews or other advancement activities.
