2.)The next Troop outing will be a backpacking trip to Western Ma. on April 11th and 12th. The Troop will leave from the Church Parking Lot on Saturday morning, April 11th. This will be a pack in and pack out trip, we will be reviewing everything at Monday’s Meeting. Scouts that have not acquired backpacking equipment should see either Mr. Rhodes or myself, as the Troop has some equipment that can be loaned out. Scouts should sign-up on Monday if they plan on attending this outing.
3.)The West Point Camporee countdown has begun, and Scouts and Adults signed up to attend. (Please see second e-mail) should make sure that they have signed up for the Class “B” shirt and Fleece Jacket to ensure that we have them ordered by Tuesday. Please take time to read and address the “West Point” e-mail coming out later today.
4.)Reminder to Scouts signed up for the Scout “O” on April 18th, to please bring in your $10.00 payment for this event. The Troop will be leaving from the Church Parking Lot at 7:30 AM on Saturday, April 18th for this event. Scouts will need a compass for this event. More information to follow, as the date draws closer.
5.)Please add to your calendar a potential training hike for West Point on April 19th. If we can get everything organized and the weather cooperates, we would like to get the Troop organized for the West Point Trip and potentially take care of a few advancement requirements.
6.)Once again, Scouts should be turning in their Merit Badge Selection sheets for Summer Camp. Please see the previously e-mailed Summer Guide for Parents for this information. Additionally, final payment for Summer Camp is due on May 1st, if you wish to take advantage of the previously submitted “early bird” discount.
7.)Scouts and parents should be looking at their calendars to see if the June 27th thru 29th outing to Nantucket is feasible. We are trying to gauge the level of interest in planning the trip for this year or wait until next year, so please let us know.
8.)Please turn in your BSA medical forms for summer camp and for the Troop’s records, as we cannot travel to West Point or other outings without this information. For Summer Camp we need Parts “A”, “B” and “C”, but only Parts “A” and “B” for other trips. Please see me if you have any questions.
