This week we will have our patrol cooking competition. If you have not done so already, you need to submit your recipes to Dante for approval. There will be a troop PLC at 6:30 on Thursday. Committee meeting is at 6:00 pm.
Memorial Day Camp Out Payments are due this week.
Summer Camp Payments are also coming up.
We have 3 youth looking for rides to the Memorial Day Camp Out. Please let me know if you have room to bring another youth along with you.
Air Life Run and First Responder Celebration is this Saturday May 11, from 8am - 3pm at Hudson Gardens. See attached Flier for more info. They will have Air Life vehicles, Firetrucks. Great way to complete Fire Safety MB if you missed the firehouse visit.
We are getting closer to the trek to Northern Tier. We are adding a night for paddle making. Paddles will be Tuesday at 7 pm for two weeks. Please make sure that you get your payments in and let me know if you have any questions.
Camp Cards and money are due Thursday, May 9. If you are not going to be there please make arrangements with me. I will be turning everything in to council early next week. If I don't have your money/cards, you will be responsible for the entire balance for all cards checked out.
Jessica Kurtz has worked to create the attached checklist to assist families with providing complete and accurate medical forms for all of our 2019 adventures.
Please print a copy of the attached check list and make sure all required spaces are complete, all "i's" are dotted and "t's" crossed to ensure the health and well being of all outing participants. Regarding the Annual Health and Medical Record form ("med form") any person - Scout, parent, sibling - attending an outing which lasts less than 72 hours must complete parts A & B of the med form, in addition to other required documents (see checklist). Anyone participating in an outing which exceeds 72 hours must also complete part C of the med form. Please note that a physician's signature is now required on part B (NEW) in addition to part C (as previously required).
All required forms can be found at our website, https://www.bsatroop444.com/troop-medical-forms
2 Copies of these documents must be turned in directly at a Troop meeting, or can be mailed. Please DO NOT email your medical forms as this violates the BSA's recommendations regarding information privacy.
IT IS A VIOLATION OF HIPPA and BSA RULES TO EMAIL YOUR MED FORMS. 2 physical copies must be delivered.
Please contact Jessica or myself with any questions.
The Memorial Day Camp Out is coming up. This camping trip is a great opportunity to hang out with the other families from the troop and get to know each other, as well as venture into some fabulous places that represent the best of America. This year we will be heading South to New Mexico and visiting Santa Fe, the Los Alamos area, Bandelier National Monument, and Jemez Falls Campground.
