Our Winter Court of Honor will be held on March 4th, normal meeting night at the Church at 7pm.
The due date for all blue cards and Board of Reviews is 2 weeks prior to allow time to put together ceremony and purchase awards. This deadline is Monday FEBRUARY 18th, 2019. This is President’s Day and there is not a normal troop meeting, but if there are scouts needing Board of Reviews, we will likely be doing these at an offsite venue that evening.
Please keep in mind having Feb 18th BORs means that you MUST have your scoutmaster conference done PRIOR to Feb 18th and have contacted us via email with your request to meet so we can assign times. We will do BORs at the Jan 28th and Feb 4th troop meetings if anyone is ready.
There are only 3 more weeks before this cutoff to do a scoutmaster conference: PLAN AHEAD!
It is the time of year to sign up for Summer Camp for 2019. This year we are traveling out of council to Ransburg Scout Reservation just south of Bloomington, Indiana. The camp is on the south side of Lake Monroe. The camp looks to be well run and has tons of opportunities (almost 80 merit badge offered). If you have never attended summer camp you should really think about making this be your first year to come.
Mr Wagaman will be taking permission forms and deposits. A non-refundable deposit of $50 is required by 2/11/19. You are welcome to pay the full amount now instead ($345). Otherwise the balance for the early rate will be due 4/1/19. For summer camp all attendees will need to have full medical forms (A, B, and C) filled out and stamped by your doctor. We renew these on an annual basis, so if they are not current they will need to be updated. Med forms can be handed in in the spring of next year.
Remember, there are only two meetings left to turn in your deposit. January 28 and February 4!
