Troop 48 Update - 4/6/18

Posted on Sat, Apr 7, 2018

Advancement Report Attached

Attached is this month’s advancement report. Please check to see if your record is up to date, and please see Mrs. Vietzke if there are any updates to be made.


Donate to the BSA

If you would like to make a charitable donation to support the Boy Scout program in our area, please contact John Campbell at, and he will have the Chickasaw Council send you a pledge card and payment information. Also, we will have Ken Allen as our guest at our April 24 Court of Honor meeting, and he will also be accepting donations.


BSA Swim Check at Germantown Athletic Club – April 17 (No Regular Troop Meeting)

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  at 7:00 PM – 9:00 PM at Germantown Athletic Club (GAC), 1801 Exeter Road, Germantown, 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.  Each person swimming needs to complete the attached waiver form and bring it on April 17 (unless you are a member of GAC). The Troop will be paying the cost of $5 per person, however if you are a member of GAC, please use your membership card. Mr. Bo Hormberg will be sending out a staggered schedule for start times by patrol. You may leave after your swim check is completed.  


Summer Adventure – July 14-16

The Troop’s Summer Adventure trip will be July 14-16 to New Orleans via Amtrak train, visiting The National WWII Museum. The cost of the trip will be $125 per person, and sign-up and a $100 deposit are due on April 24. The drop-off and pick-up will be at the Amtrak train station downtown, very early on that Saturday morning, and very late on the Monday evening when they return, so those going on the trip may want to arrange carpooling. If you have any questions concerning the trip, please contact Frederick Lee.


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: 
  • 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.
