Use the Trooperly "We Miss You" sheet to let scouts who miss a meeting know how they can catch up on badge or journey work. Type one up as you plan you meeting out and then just print and add in names at attendance time. Can then be handed out at the next meeting. Also could be emailed to scouts or parents after the meeting. Scouts can document their efforts at home on the back and return to the meeting for your tracking. See also the Trooperly "Try On Own" sheet for scouts to track actions completed at home.
