New TENT policy

Posted on Dec 1 2014 - 8:31am

The troop owns a number of tents, which I am sure most of you have spent a warm, dry night in and some of you maybe a cold wet night in. Starting in spring when we bring out the tents for use again all scouts 1st class and above are highly encouraged to use their own tents. Priority will be given to younger scouts and parents tenting with the troop for tent distribution.  When we bought the canoes part of the deal was we traded tents as part of the payment. In all reality we got the better end of the deal. But this means there are less tents. Since more than one scout can sleep in a tent not everyone will need one right away. We wanted to let families know now so they can plan accordingly for possible Christmas gifts. We hope this new policy will have a couple of effects...1.Scouts will take better care of the equipment-since it is theirs. 2.It is a sense of pride having reached first class rank-it is a privilege to use your own tent. 

PLEASE READ: Changes to Troop e-mail

Posted on May 14 2014 - 12:44pm

Our website software recently changed. There was an issue with Yahoo mail that was causing e-mails to not be delivered. To solve this problem, the software has changed to have any reply appear as if it came from our website. This means that, when you reply to any e-mail from the troop, your e-mail does not show.  Unless you enter your name in your message, the receiver has no idea who sent the message.

Three things Scout parents can do to help Scouts with their gear

Put your Scout’s Name and Troop number on everything. 

If they are attending an event with dozens or hundreds of other Scouts and misplace a piece of clothing or gear there’s a much better chance it will find its way back to them if it is clearly marked with their full name and Troop number.
