Bike Sale All Hands on Deck

Posted on Apr 17 2019 - 7:21pm
Hi all, 
 
The Bike Sale is fast approaching (11 days) and to make it successful we need your help.  As the primary fundraiser for the troop, it is an All-Hands-On-Deck event.  
 
We have created a SignupGenius identifying general time slots and positions for both SCOUTS and ADULTS.  Please sign up for any position that your available for.  If your only available for part of a time period, that's ok, just make a note of it.  
 
Those of you who signed up on the paper form, Thank you.  The SignupGenius has been completed for you.  Check it, but you should be all set.
 
 

Next Merit Badge Monday April 22nd - Please sign up now!

Posted on Apr 17 2019 - 7:18pm

The next Merit Badge Mondays session will be Monday April 22nd  from 7pm to 8:30pm.

For these sessions to work we need scouts to sign-up before the event so we ensure we have enough scouts and the right counselors available.

Have a merit badge you want to work on?  If so please let Mr or Mrs McKeen know so we can be prepared.

Merit Badge Mondays are an opportunity for scouts to connect with merit badge counselors to start new merit badges or to complete those pervasively pesky partials that seem to proliferate profusely. 

So sign-up now and sign-up early! (and of course I know some will sign-up late)...

BSA Medical Forms - Everyone needs to submit medical forms to attend Troop trips

Posted on Apr 17 2019 - 7:17pm

The Troop needs to collect BSA medical forms for all scouts in the troop on an annual basis.  

For weekend camping trips the Troop needs Parts A aand B with parents signature completed.

For summer camp we need Parts A, B, and C with parents signature, Dr's signature, and a copy of the socut's medical insurance card.

For Philmont we need Parts A, B, and C with signatures, insurance card and the Dr needs to review the reisk advisory with the scout and their family.

All Adults attending Troop trips also need to complete the medical form.  Click on the button below to access downloadable PDF versions of the medical forms.  They are fillable PDF forms to help in completing them.

Breaking News! Troop Tents now available for borrowing!

Posted on Apr 17 2019 - 7:17pm

 The Troop has decided to invest in a supply of tents that Scouts can use on camping trips.  These will be 2 and 3 person 3-season tents suitable for most all of our Troop trips.   We expect that the Tents will be ready to borrow for the April 13th camping trip.  As we are starting with a modest number of tents, scouts with their own personal tents should continue to use them.

If you would like to borrow a tent please contact your quartermaster at the meetings prior to the Trip.  Scouts will be given the tent at the meeting before the trip and will be responsible for taking it home from the trip to open it up, air it out and let it dry.  Tents should be returned to the Troop the week after the camping trip and returned to the quartermaster.
