March Campout Fee due tomorrow, 3/10

The $25 campout fee is due Tuesday, 3/10 (tomorrow) for the March 27-29 campout at Pinecrest. The March campout focus will be preparing for Camporee, which will be the April campout.

BSA Swim Check

The BSA swim check for our Troop will be Tuesday, April 14th at the Germantown Athletic Club, 1801 Exeter. The cost will be $5 per person, if not a member of the Germantown Athletic Club. Passing the swim check is required for all Scout and adults who participate in any water activities with the Troop – swimming, canoeing, kayaking, etc. If you haven’t been swimming since last summer, make plans to get some swim practice in before the swim check.


Health Forms Due April 30th

Health Forms Parts A, B and C need to be updated annually and are due by April 30th to Mr. Ralph for Scouts and adults. Part C is required for summer camp and the Washington DC trip and requires a physician signature, so make your doctor appointments now. We encourage all Scouts to have Part C completed, whether attending summer camp or not. All adults attending campouts should also complete Parts A & B. Please also keep a copy of the form you turn in for your records. The form can be downloaded from this link -


Chickasaw Council Awards Banquet – March 26

Our Eagle Scouts Josh Albert and Kyle Ralph will be honored at the Chickasaw Council Banquet on March 26th. It will be held at the Catholic Church of the Incarnation in Collierville, beginning at 6:30 pm. If you are interested in attending and purchasing a ticket for the banquet, please register online.


Kroger Community Rewards

The Kroger Community Rewards program allows our Troop to receive donations from Kroger based on our group’s shopping. Kroger is requiring everyone to re-enroll effective January 1. So please go to the website  and sign up your Kroger shopping card. Our group is called “Boy Scout Troop 48 Faith P.C.” and our number is 80383. This program does not impact any of the Kroger card benefits you receive, it’s just a way for our Troop to get donations from Kroger, so please sign up.
