June 29 Court of Honor (Tailgate Style)

Posted by jbungerspiecha on Jun 27 2020 - 3:01pm

There is a Court of Honor this coming Monday night.  As of now, the weather looks very favorable.  Plan to arrive between 7:00 and 7:20.  At 7:25 the parking lot will be closed to cars.  After the lot is full or 7:25, you may park on the street and bring your chairs to the parking lot.   

Bring camp chairs. Read the attached document so you know what to expect on Monday night.

As is our COH tradition, you may bring dessert/snack but please NO SHARING with other families.  We need everyone to remain with their family units.  

Weekend Help With Isaac's Eagle Project

Posted by jbungerspiecha on Jun 15 2020 - 2:01pm

Isaac Stanley here. I recently had my Eagle Project approved, and naturally I'll be needing some assistance. This one is unique in that it doesn't require very much work on your part AND you get to put down more service hours than a typical Eagle Project would net you.

Newest BSA Medical Form

Posted by jbungerspiecha on May 26 2020 - 7:58pm

Regardless of whether we attend camp this summer or not, a BSA medical form is required to be filled out annually (not coincidentally, the formal name of the form is "Annual Health and Medical Record").  It recently changed for 2020.  Please use the newest one when filling one out for the troop. https://filestore.scouting.org/filestore/HealthSafety/pdf/680-001_ABC.pdf  The easiest time to get AB and C filled out is out your well-child checkup.  C is required for events lasting more than 72 hours.  This can be a long trip or something like NYLT that spans multiple weekends.

From Steve Kallesser:  As promised on last night's call,  I am sending out this survey (link below) to gauge interest and participation in the various options presented.  PLEASE take this survey today, tomorrow, or Sunday.  Thank you for everything you do for Scouting!  This link was sent by e-mail if you don't remember your credentials to log into the website to access it.
