Troop 48 Update - 3/2/18

Posted on Sat, Mar 10, 2018

Skymont 2nd Payment due this Tuesday, March 6

If you have signed up to attend Skymont summer camp in June, the 2nd payment is due Tuesday - $75 for Scout and $30 for Adults. Please pay these to the scribe or Mr. Frederick Lee.

 

T-Shirt Orders

Attached is an order form for Troop t-shirts, the prices and choices are shown on the form. All Scouts must have a Troop t-shirt for Camporee in April and enough t-shirts to wear each day for Skymont summer camp in June. Orders and money for t-shirts are due to Mrs. Teri Gulati by March 27. We will not be able to accept orders after March 27, but will accept them earlier.  Please consider now if you will need a larger size soon or if you would like a long-sleeve t-shirt for the fall/winter, as we will not be ordering again for several months. 

 

BSA Swim Check – Be Prepared

All Scouts and Dads need to pass the BSA Swim Check annually and qualify as a “BSA Swimmer” to participate in water activities with the Troop, such as canoeing, swimming or water sports. Our May campout is canoeing, so you must be a BSA Swimmer to go on that trip.  Our Swim Check will be held on Tuesday night, April 17th instead of our regular Troop meeting. If you haven’t been swimming in a while, it would be good to get some practice in now. Scouts who have not earned Second Class can complete requirements 5b and 5c.  The requirements are listed below (you must use one of the strokes listed properly and have a strong stroke to pass as a Swimmer):

 

SWIMMER:

Jump feet first into water over the head in depth, level off, and begin swimming. Swim 75 yards in a strong manner using one or more of the following strokes: sidestroke, breaststroke, trudgen, or crawl; then swim 25 yards using an easy resting backstroke. The 100 yards must be swum continuously and include at least one sharp turn. After completing the swim, rest by floating.

BEGINNER (Second Class requirement 5b):

Jump feet first into water over the head in depth, level off, swim 25 feet on the surface, stop, turn sharply, resume swimming as before, and return to starting place.

Second Class requirement 5c:

Demonstrate water rescue methods by reaching with your arm or leg, by reaching with a suitable object, and by throwing lines and objects.

 

Health and Medical Records for Scouts and Adults – Part C Forms due April 24

  • Parts A and B of the Health form are past due – please turn these in to Mr. Ralph as soon as possible if you have not already
  • Part C of the Health form requires a physical and must be signed by a certified and licensed health-care provider, so make your doctor appointments now
  • Forms can be found at this link: www.scouting.org/filestore/HealthSafety/pdf/680-001_ABC.pdf 
  • Please TURN IN (2) COPIES of Part C by April 24 to Mr. Ralph and also keep a copy for your home records. This allows Mr. Ralph to send copies in advance to the Camp Nurse and still have a copy in his possession for quick reference.
