Meeting canceled / signup for canoe trip

Posted by jaypullen on Jul 20 2016 - 7:28am

Several of our leaders, including me, will either be out of town or have prior commitments tomorrow,  so we will need to cancel this week's troop meeting.  Please make sure everyone in your patrols get this message.

Here is our loose agenda:

  • We'll meet in the Howe parking lot (church will be in service) at 9am on Sunday; Load bikes onto the bike trailer, and load personal gear into the various cars, and troop trailer that is going.
  • Pack a sack lunch!  We'll stop prior to getting to camp to eat at a rest stop.
  • At this Thursday's meeting we'll load the trailer, finish up filling out blue cards, this would also be the time to pay any outstanding balance you may have on your ISA.
  • There is a committee meeting tonight where we are hoping to nail down the plan for transporting bikes as well as determine how many drivers we will need as well as gear transporters.

Parents meeting 7/28

  • 7:30-9, during the meeting.  Parents meeting for discussing Volunteer opportunities for the troop.  They say an army runs on it's stomach...meaning that while the infantry makes the news, they could not perform their jobs without a tremendous amount of support from all areas: transportation, food services, engineering, logistics, the list goes on.  Well, it's like that with the troop also.  Your scouts need help with organization, communication, transportation, coaching, and that list goes on also.  We need people with all levels of committment ability.  Only have a couple of hours a month?  We can use you.  Are you willing to put in an hour or so a week?  We can use you.  How about a few hours a year?  Yep, we need you too.  It takes a lot of adults working in the background to allow the boys to run a scout-led troop.  Come see how you can participate.

Medical Forms for the Hike and Summer Camp

Posted by gretchenriess on Jun 14 2016 - 12:11am

Medical Forms

Please provide updated medical forms (Adults and Scouts) for the Summer Camp in July. You will need Forms A, B and C.  The doctor signs off on Form C.  They may want to see all parts of the form to sign off on Part C, so send the entire form to the doctor’s office to save some yourself some time. 

For the upcoming hike, adults and scouts need Forms A and B on file with the Troop, if you haven’t already submitted an updated form for 2016.  If your form from last year is dated June 2015 or later, you should be good until the end of June.
