Updates 6/13: Important Notice about Medicine Blister Pacs, Volunteer Meeting, Picnic. 

Blister Pacs

To All Parent who received Blister Pacs for Summer (all others can ignore this message)

When I handed you your blister pac for summer camp, I may not have handed you an instruction sheet(It is a sheet which will have your son's name, address, phone, email and medication info along with how to load the blister pac). If you did not get this sheet, please see Kevin Woods on Mon at the meeting(he has the instruction sheets.

My apologies for the oversight in advance.


a. Merit Badges - We completed the sign up for the merit badges on Sat (June 2, 2012). Every Scout got what they signed up for except for one that had to switch kayaking for rowing. We will hand out each Scout's schedule on Sat at Check in.

b. Sat Check in - I need 5 more volunteers to cover check in stations on Sat, June 16, 2012. We will start the check in process at 9:00 a.m. All activities will take place in the hut except for loading the gear in the trailer. If you can help us out, please let me know. I would ask the volunteers for check in to show up at 8:30 a.m. at the hut to get organized.

c. Back up to pull the trailer to Ottari - David Belk had volunteered to drive the trailer to Ottari on Sunday. He will probably be unable to do this due to work obligations. If you can help us out by pulling the trailer on Sunday, please let me know.

Wed Meeting - 6/13

We will have succinct  meeting for the Adult Volunteers, SPL and ASPL at the Hut, Wed, June 13 at 7pm about summer camp. For the SPL (Ross Woods) and ASPL(Colin Read), you will only need to be there for the first 22 minutes - we will cover what you need to get done prior to camp and while you are there during that time. The adults will be stuck for the remaining 38 minutes(hopeuflly less).

Merit Badge Prepays

See email sent on 6/13 for a list of merit badge prepays that were made by the Troop during merit badge registration. The prepays were $27.50 for Indian Lore , $6 for Leatherwork, $5 for Woodcarving and $2.75 for Archery. You will be asked to make payment for these charges during check-in this Sat(other possible charges you may incur are for the picnic, any uniform items you buy and/or balance due for camp). We will consolidate this into one payment during check in (It will be at station two). 

If you have any questions, please contact me.

Hey Y’all!,

I am in charge of the picnic on Friday, June 22nd at 5:00pm. The cost is $5.00 per scout/adult attending. I would like to start a list of who is planning to attending the picnic and what side dish or dessert they will bring. Also if you are not attending the picnic, please consider sending a dish with someone who will be going. It looks like we have a pretty large group going this year (20 scouts and 7 leaders?) so contributions from everyone would be great. As always, we will provide Price’s Chicken as our main dish. 

Thanks much!,

Amy Woods
