IMPORTANT: Troop 36 trip signups

Hello everyone!

Since we have so many new scouts and parents, it is a great time to review our camping trip signup procedures.

EVERYONE needs to review this!  Some scouts who have been around for a while are getting lazy and we are spending hours upon hours of time tracking down signatures and forms.  Please read this carefully.

It may seem a little complicated at first, but it is really very simple.  There are THREE things that need to happen to sign up for a trip.

1.  Sign the trip signup form. 

This is normally located on out bulletin board, but the Scribe will sometimes place it on the front table during the meeting to make it more accessible.  Signing the signup sheet is critical because it allows me to plan for the proper number of seatbelts.  It also serves as authority for our troop treasurer to deduct the cost of the trip from your scout account.

Think of this like signing a check for your scouting account.  Because we are committing resources to get you to the trip, once you sign up, you are making a commitment for that trip and will be charged even if you do not come.

In some circumstances you may be able to back out without a charge if you contact the Scoutmaster prior to the Friday of the trip.  However, if your patrol has already bought food for you, you will still be obligated to pay back the scout that bought the food.

Bottom line:  If you do not sign the form, YOU ARE NOT SIGNED UP FOR THE TRIP!

2.  Download, print, have your parents sign, and turn in a permission slip. 

This needs to be turned in the meeting prior to the trip.  With such a large troop, it takes a lot of time and energy to track down every scout who did not have a permission slip.

Adults:  You need a permission slip as well!

You may download the permission slips from our website here:  http://troop-36.org/resources/permission-slips/

3.  Bring food money on Friday.

The cost of the trip normally does NOT include food.  The patrols will plan their menus and buy food, so the cost will vary.  On the Friday of the campout, the scout that bought food will figure out how much each member owes him and get reimbursed.  We ask the boys to keep the cost to $10 or less for the weekend if at all possible.

So, to review: In order to be signed up for a trip, you need to do THREE THINGS:

1.  Sign the trip signup form.
2.  Download, print, have your parents sign, and turn in a permission slip.
3.  Bring food money on Friday.
Thanks for your help in this matter. See you Tuesday,

Steve Sellers

Weekly Update 1/27/14

Hello everyone, Here are the weekly announcements for Troop 36 for 1/27/14

 

Special PLC Meeting Tomorrow

PLC members, we need to meet a little early tomorrow evening to discuss the last campout. Please attend if at all possible as this is a very important topic that we need to cover. Please be at the church by 6:15pm.

 

Webelos are visiting tomorrow!

We will have visitors from Pack 10 at tomorrow’s meeting! Come prepared to help out and show some younger scouts what Troop 36 is all about! Since this is the last meeting of the month, uniform is Class “B” (Scout pants, red Troop 36 T-Shirt).

 

Ski Trip Update

On February 15th we will be taking a day-trip to Alpine Mountain for a day of skiing, snowboarding and tubing. This should be a great day. Family is welcome to come and will get the troop rate for the day.

The cost of the lift ticket is $27, rental is $15, and for a total of only $49, you can get a lift ticket, rental, and a one-hour lesson! Please make plans to attend. I will have a signup sheet tomorrow night.

 

Klondike Derby!

February 22nd is the annual Klondike Derby at Pine Hill scout reservation. We will be sending two teams! This will be a day-trip only and I will have signups tomorrow night as well. Plan on leaving the church around 7:30am and returning at 5:30pm.

We also need adult help to run our station! Please consider coming out for the day to drive and to help man our can-crushing station.

 

Summer Camp

Time to sign up! See Mrs. Zocalli-Nagler at the meeting for more information. I will have merit badge signups an more information shortly.  This year we are going to Bashore Scout Reservation in Jonestown, PA from July 6-12.  The cost is $335 per Scout if paid by May 15 (commonly called the “early bird” rate).  Now is the time to start planning to go!  We will be taking reservations with a $35 deposit.  Plan ahead!  

 

T-Shirt Orders Due Tomorrow

We are still taking T-Shirt and Hoodie orders until tomorrow. Just a reminder that we will NOT be ordering the wicking T-shirts as previously announced, as the company does not have a wicking T that is even remotely close to our troop color.  If there is significant interest in wicking T-Shirts, we will look into it further for next order.  Get your orders in ASAP!

 

Cans, Cans, Cans!

We need your soda cans for Klondike Derby in February! Please save and soda cans for our "can-crushing" station at the Klondike Derby.  Just bring them in bags to the next troop meeting. We will plan to leave the church parking lot at 7:00am and return no later than 7:00pm.

See you tomorrow,

Steve Sellers
