Troop 48 Update - 1/18/19

Posted on Fri, Feb 15, 2019

2019 Lodge Order of the Arrow Conference (LOAC)

LOAC 2019 will be held at Camp Currier the weekend of February 8-10.  This year we will have climbing, shooting, fishing, sports, games, a chapter ceremonies competition, and several training sessions.  LOAC is a good opportunity for eligible OA brothers to seal their membership by becoming Brotherhood members. Participants will receive the first flap in our three flap set for 2019 program events. Additional information will be provided during upcoming Troop meetings.


OA Members Reminder – wear your OA sash next Tuesday for the OA Elections.


Skymont Summer Camp – June 8-15

The first Skymont deposit is due February 5 and is $75 for Scouts and $30 for Adults. The total cost for Skymont this year will be $180 for Scouts and $85 for Adults. These costs are being subsidized by the Troop by $115 per Scout and $65 per Adult, so we encourage everyone to consider attending summer camp to take advantage of this great deal and make some progress on earning merit badges. Please note that any adults attending Skymont need to be registered with the BSA. More information will be provided at the February 5 Court of Honor, and you can check out their website at this link: Skymont


Spaghetti Supper – February 22

Tickets for our 64th annual Spaghetti Supper on February 22 were handed out last Tuesday, so please start selling those. Tickets are $10 each. For every 8 tickets you sell, you earn 1 free ticket. We need all Scouts and parents to help with this event, so please plan to be there on February 22. If you have any questions or need additional tickets, please contact Mrs. Kelley Lee.


Scout Sunday – February 10

Please make plans for Scouts and their families to attend the church service at Faith Presbyterian on Sunday, February 10 to celebrate Scout Sunday. We will also take the Troop photo that morning at 10 am. Scouts should wear Class A uniforms.


Philmont Trip Dates for 2020

The first deposit for the trip to Philmont Scout Ranch in New Mexico will be due soon, so please let Assistant Scoutmaster Bo Hormberg know if you may be interested in this high adventure trip of a lifetime. The 12-day expedition will arrive at Philmont on 6/21/2020 and will depart Philmont on 7/3/2020. Scouts need to be 14 years old OR 13 years old and completed 8th grade by 6/21/2020.
